The pictures are fantastic. This book provided a majority of the information my daughter needed for her report. The only reason I did not give this book a 5 star rating is because it didn't include very much information on disorders of the digestive system. That information would have been nice to see included, but we were able to get plenty of disorder information on the internet.
I didn't realize this was a children's book. One person found this helpful. The text of the book was perfect. It managed to combine technical words with a serious scientific tone with a certain simplicity and straightforwardness that was comprehensible, but still wonderful to read. I will be the first to admit I learned a great deal about the digestive system and would recommend it to anyone, child or somewhat silly adult like myself.
Initially, the colors and nature of the pictures bothered me somehow--not because of the "gross factor", but because I often had no idea what I was looking at. Sometimes a computer visualization is clearer, so I missed having some of those to help.
But the text was so strong, it made up for that. You may not think much about your digestive system but as this book show it's always hard at work! Guts tells us how the body digest food starting with our teeth and ending with the food beining made into waste. Full color photo are show through out the book to give us a better idea of our insides! What did you like or not like about the book? The information was written with children in mind. I feel like it explained the topice well.
Would you recommend the book? Why or Why not? Yes The content of the book is written in a simplistic manner, but is loaded with facts. I reviewed 10 of his writings for a class project in Children's Literature. He writes about the body in an interesting and informative way and peaks curiosity and leaves you wanting to know more.

These cells are similar to those lining the upper part of the stomach and are not the usual squamous cells that line the esophageal mucosa. In some persons in whom this transformation occurs, a carcinoma develops some 10 to 20 years later. The decision as to the treatment of a hiatal hernia by conservative means or by surgery is influenced by such factors as age, occupation, and the likelihood of compliance with a strict regimen.
There is a much less common form of hiatal hernia, called a paraesophageal hernia, in which the greater curvature of the stomach is pushed up into the thorax while the esophagogastric junction remains intact below the diaphragm. Such individuals experience dysphagia caused by compression of the lower esophagus by the part of the stomach that has rolled up against it.
This rarer form of hernia is more dangerous, often being complicated by hemorrhage or ulceration, and requires relief by surgery. Pouches in the walls of the structures in the digestive system that occur wherever weak spots exist between adjacent muscle layers are called diverticula. In the upper esophagus, diverticula may occur in the area where the striated constrictor muscles of the pharynx merge with the smooth muscle of the esophagus just below the larynx.
Some males over 50 years of age show protrusion of a small sac of pharyngeal mucous membrane through the space between these muscles. As aging continues, or if there is motor disturbance in the area, this sac may become distended and may fill with food or saliva. It usually projects to the left of the midline, and its presence may become known by the bubbling and crunching sounds produced during eating. Often the patient can feel it in the left side of the neck as a lump, which can be reduced by pressure of the finger.
Sometimes the sac may get so large that it compresses the esophagus adjacent to it, producing a true obstruction. Treatment is by surgery. Small diverticula just above the diaphragm sometimes are found after the introduction of surgical instruments into the esophagus. Boerhaave syndrome is a rare spontaneous rupture to the esophagus. It can occur in patients who have been vomiting or retching and in debilitated elderly persons with chronic lung disease.
Emergency surgical repair of the perforation is required. A rupture of this type confined to the mucosa only at the junction of the linings of the esophagus and stomach is called a Mallory-Weiss lesion. At this site, the mucosa is firmly tethered to the underlying structures and, when repeated retching occurs, this part of the lining is unable to slide and suffers a tear.
The tear leads to immediate pain beneath the lower end of the sternum and bleeding that is often severe enough to require a transfusion. The circumstances preceding the event are commonly the consumption of a large quantity of alcohol followed by eating and then vomiting.
The largest group of individuals affected are alcoholic men. Diagnosis is determined with an endoscope. Most tears spontaneously stop bleeding and heal over the course of some days without treatment.
If transfusion does not correct blood loss, surgical suture of the tear may be necessary. An alternative to surgery is the use of the drug vasopressin, which shuts down the blood vessels that supply the mucosa in the region of the tear.
Esophageal tumours may be benign or malignant. Generally, benign tumours originate in the submucosal tissues and principally are leiomyomas tumours composed of smooth muscle tissue or lipomas tumours composed of adipose, or fat, tissues.
Malignant tumours are either epidermal cancers, made up of unorganized aggregates of cells, or adenocarcinomas, in which there are glandlike formations. Cancers arising from squamous tissues are found at all levels of the esophagus, whereas adenocarcinomas are more common at the lower end where a number of glands of gastric origin are normally present. Tumours produce difficulty in swallowing, particularly of solid foods; they are much more common in men than in women, and they seem to vary greatly in their worldwide distribution.
In North China, for example, the incidence of esophageal cancer in men is 30 times that of white men in the United States and 8 times that of black men. The exact causes of esophageal cancer are not known.
Risk factors may include age, sex, smoking, excessive consumption of alcohol, Barrett esophagus, and a personal history of cancer.
In women, cancer of the upper esophagus is more common than in men, and women may be predisposed by long-standing iron deficiency, or Plummer-Vinson Paterson-Kelly syndrome. Dysphagia is the first and most prominent symptom. Later swallowing becomes painful as surrounding structures are involved. Hoarseness indicates that the nerve to the larynx is affected. The diagnosis is suggested by X ray and proved by endoscopy with multiple biopsies from the area of abnormality.
Diagnosis can be reinforced by removing quantities of cells with a nylon brush for examination under a microscope exfoliative cytology. The prognosis is poor because the tumour has usually been growing for one or two years before symptoms are apparent. The channel of the esophagus is encroached upon and can be almost entirely obstructed.
Esophageal cancer is usually accompanied by considerable weight loss, but nutrition may be restored by nutritional supplements. In advanced cases, a tube may be inserted into the esophagus to keep it open.
Where the channel is greatly narrowed, the size of the tumour can be reduced by destroying the tissue with lasers. Radiotherapy is used for malignancies of the upper esophagus and as treatment for those at the lower end. A combination of radiotherapy followed by surgical excision may also be used.
The five-year survival rate for esophageal cancer remains very low. Lessening the effects of the disease, with restoration of eating ability, is very important, because otherwise the inability to swallow even saliva is distressing and starvation may result.
