What Do You Mean By Digestive Waste And How Is It Removed From The Body

What do you mean by digestive waste and how is it removed from the body ?


After digestion and absorption of food is over, the residue left makes the digestive waste. The digestive wastes, solidified into coherent faeces in the rectum initiate a neural reflex causing an urge or desire for its removal. The egestion of faeces to the outside through the anal opening (defecation) is a voluntary process and is carried out by a mass peristaltic movement.
