STOMACH
The human stomach generally resembles a curved sack, but can vary in size and shape according to the individual. An average adult stomach can hold about 1.5L of material. The stomach secretes gastric juices which helps to digest food. Food in the form of bolus chewed, and softened, enters the stomach from the esophagus, through a hole near the heart, and exits into the small intestine. [CG] {NR}
