The digestive system is very interesting to me. Some people can eat the hottest peppers in the world without a flinch and others cannot eat anything that has even a hint of spice without running to the bathroom. The clockwork of the digestive system is how a food may start out as a solid but then gets broken down by the teeth and muscles inside the body to become a liquid. After the acid inside the stomach breaks it down again it eventually gets compacted back into a solid and eventually completely passes through the body. The framework of the digestive system is the stomach, esophagus, stomach acid, teeth, and intestines. However strong or weak your digestive system is nothing can explain the Phenomenon that I witnessed last week. On the Tv show "Ripley's Believe It or Not" I saw a man digest glass, nuts, bolts, and other assortments of metal. Doctors and other experts could not explain how or why this man could eat such things and still be alive. None-the-less he is in his 60's, continues to defy the odds by eating these things, and continues to bafull the critics.
