Videos on Understanding the Digestive System

January 16, 2010

I found a few new video clips on YouTube, in 3-D that give you a good idea how the digestive system functions. These clips are updates to the prior post on The Digestive System from 2008.

The first on the Digestive System traces a bite of food from the mouth until it is eliminated. (Click on the link to go to the YouTube site, if the video doesn’t display below).

Digestive System

Other interactive online animation:

  • Digestive System from the National Geographic has an interactive way of looking at the digestive sytem. You can click to view certain parts of the system.
  • A normal, healthy digestive system this 2-dimensional one is from a constipation advice company in the U.K.
  • The Digestive Machine from Discovery Health. May appeal more to younger children, but it is kind of fun.
