Summary Most animals, including humans, are essentially food-processing tubes. In this program, anatomy guru Gunther von Hagens lays out the human body's seven-meter digestive tract end-to-end, showing viewers each stop on the gastro-intestinal highway. Beginning with the tongue, salivary glands, pharynx, and epiglottis, von Hagens uncovers and removes the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small and large intestines, and anus, as well as the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. He explores the bile ducts of the liver, illustrates the ways that urine and feces are stored and released, and -- in an anatomical context -- explains burps, heartburn, nausea, ulcers, and other rarely discussed facts of life. Viewer discretion is advised. Contains clinically explicit language and demonstrations.-- Container.
