|Digestion takes place almost continuously in a liquid, wet
environment the large intestine absorbs the water on it's way towards the
rectum , where it
will wait to be expelled. Attached to the first portion of the
colon is a
troublesome pouch called the (veriform) appendix. They say the appendix has no function in
modern humans, however it is believed to have been part of the digestive system in our
primitive ancestors. Today some scientists think they have figured out the purpose of the
seemingly useless appendix: It seems to produce and protect good bacteria for your colon.
Sometimes the flora of bacteria in the intestines die or are purged. The appendix's job is to reboot the colon when that happens.
