large intestine and functions

large intestine: 

With a diameter or contour of between 7 and 10 centimeters, the large intestine is indeed thicker than the thin, and it is almost the last stop making food in the digestive tract. Like the small intestine is retreated about himself on the inside of your body, and, if it spreads completely, would measure about 1.5 meters long. The large intestine is a tube with a closed end that stands out and that is called the appendix. Although the appendix is part of the digestive tract, does not appear to play any role, but it can give problems because sometimes becomes infected and must be removed (ie, drawn by an operation). 

As we have said, once it has removed most of the nutrients from the liquid mixture of food, is what is known as waste products, the material that I could not use your body and you have to be expelled to the outside. Can you guess where it ends? Well, here's a hint: to lose sight of, you have to pull the string. 

Before being expelled, waste products pass through the portion of the large intestine called the colon, which is where the body is the last chance to absorb water and some minerals, discharges into the bloodstream. As the waste products are losing water, are tightening while moving the large intestine into a solid. Yes, it is the cacas (more finely called stool, stools or bowel movements). 

The large intestine is pushing the stool until he arriving in the rectum, the last portion of the digestive tract. The products in solid waste remain here until you have wanted to go to the bathroom. When you go to the bathroom, you emerge from these expelling waste products through the anus. And now is when the chain comes into action!
