Biology Digestive and Skeletomuscular Systems

  • 1.(1) You just ate a sandwich during a wonderful seminar and your body is working hard to extract the nutrients. Describe the journey your food will take through your key digestive systems, starting from ingestion to excretion.
  • 1. (2)Describe one aspect of the digestive system that can decline with age and how that will affect the health of an elderly person.
  • 2.Based on the age-dependent changes of the skeletomuscular system discussed in class:
  • 2. (1) Describe one major physiological change that can occur to the skeletal system.
  • 2. (2) Describe one major physiological change that can occur to the muscular system.
  • For both (1) and (2), elaborate why the change happens and how it will affect the way we age.
