Digestive Sytem

  • The stomach has three jobs . First, it stores the swallowed food and liquid. The muscle of the upper part of the stomach relaxes to accept large amounts of swallowed food. The second job is to mix up the food, liquid, and digestive juice produced by the stomach. The lower part of the stomach mixes these foods by its muscle action.
