Живая еда

3 коротких фильма под авторством Павла С. о том, какую пищу следует употреблять. Автор ссылается на труды академика Уголева А.М. Большинство людей представляют пищеварительную систему как трубу с желудочным соком, а процесс пищеварения как растворение пищи этим соком. Этот взгляд очень далек от истины. Растворение пищи собственными силами организма – это только один из видов пищеварения, причем не основной.

1. Устройство системы пищеварения человека
2. Микрофлора или зачем нужен аппендикс
3. Гормональный фон зависит от питания
