Body of Evidence: The Digestive System
The average person eats about 100,000 pounds of food during his lifetime. Have you ever considered what happens in the body to make use of all those grains, meats, and vegetables—plus all those fun sweets? Did you know that your stomach produces hydrochloric acid, and your colon harbors more than 400 distinct species of helpful bacteria?

The adult digestive system is amazing. The digestive tract itself is 20–30 feet long. It takes about two hours for food to be rhythmically propelled through this system, during which carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream. “Accessory glands” such as the pancreas, liver, and salivary glands aid in the digestive process and the utilization of food to make the fuel that the body uses for growth and metabolism.

Join Dr. Menton as he uses computer graphics and anatomy models to reveal intriguing facts that inspire you to eat properly and to give glory to Christ the Creator!

Part 1: 37 Minutes. Part 2: 37 Minutes

    Review by Homestead Originals January 4, 2012
    Reviewer: Lisa from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
    As a homeschool family, finding great resources to use in our teaching is akin to finding hidden treasure!

    Our latest treasure? The Body of Evidence DVDs that bring Dr. David Menton, PhD right into our living rooms to teach the whole family!  Dr. Menton teaches from a biblically based perspective, honoring and giving glory to our Creator in his teaching; just what we look for in our resources and you can’t find a better tutor!

    He presents the facts in a very clear, straightforward manner (did you know the average person eats about 100,000 pounds of food in his lifetime?!) with excellent computer graphics and anatomy models that really bring his teaching to life!  Body of Evidence DVD: The Digestive System has Dr. Menton teaching directly to a few students (this DVD is geared toward ages 13 to adult), going over the digestive system processes in detail, using anatomy models to show us exactly what, where and how our Creator designed us and our bodies to work in such an amazing way.  Although this DVD starts off a bit ’slow’, once it gets going it is fantastic!

    I know we never give a whole lot of thought to what exactly happens inside our bodies and how they work to use the foods we eat to nourish these bodies God gave us. We eat what we like, tastes good and is good for us (most of the time!) and take for granted the amazing handiwork of our Creator who knit us together! It truly is an eye opening experience to learn from The Body of Evidence DVD’s and be reminded of how we ought not to take for granted our Creators handiwork! Did you know our digestive system is 20 to 30 feet long and it takes about 2 hours for foods to be worked through our systems and for the digestive process to do its job to make the fuel our bodies need for growth?! We loved the easy to follow teachings of Dr. Menton and his direct style.

    The Body of Evidence DVDs are an absolutely excellent resource (that we will use again and again) for our homeschool libraries, perfect for stand alone teaching or as an extra special class for your students to accompany their current curriculum- highly recommended!!
