The human body needs to take in food and water found in the environment, and through an almost miraculous sequence of mechanical and chemical processes, it converts that food into nutrients that sustain all the body's activities. The digestive track alone has nine major organs devoted to this process and the renal track three. Join world-renowned surgeon Dr. Mark Reisman as he provides you with a unique look at the anatomy and physiology of the many organs and structures of digestion. Lastly, discover the properties of metabolism and nutrition.

Shot in HD, using the latest in 3-D graphics, medical imaging and cadaver specimens, see the human body's digestive and renal systems revealed in ways never seen before.
