Digestion is how we take life from other things and incorporate it into our own. The large molecules having composed other living things are broken down into smaller, microscopic molecules. Each of the epithelial cells absorb the molecules of nutrients through a thousand microvilli that make the boundary between the inside of the body and the outside. Now small molecules will be assembled into large ones, creating new life in our human bodies.
