The flu is different from the stomach bug in the sense that the flu may affect the respiratory system of the body while the stomach bug will affect the digestive system. The virus that causes these two different conditions are different from each other. The symptoms that you will experience when you are suffering from both are also highly different from each other.

Flu is considered to be more serious especially if it would not be immediately medicated. There are some people who only start with flu but after some time, they will start to suffer from bronchitis or even pneumonia. It is best to get yourself checked by a medical professional so that you can get the necessary treatments that your body needs.

Partial digestion is the leading cause of excessive noises in the stomach. Fiber-rich foods like beans and cabbage produce more gas and lead to noises. The gas gets trapped in food and when stomach muscle contracts the gas moves around and creates loud noises.


Growling noises in the stomach are loud when you have an empty or partially empty stomach, which is due to the bouncing of noises that are muffled in the stomach when full. Also, stomach growling may be caused by not drinking enough water throughout the day. Drinking too much coffee or eating too many acidic foods causes a growling in the stomach.

The answer to this question is D. When the gut develops, two mesogastria are attached to the stomach. These two mesogastria are called the ventral mesogastrium and the dorsal mesogastrium. Each mesogastrium will be the “house” of different organs as they begin to develop.

The liver will develop in the ventral mesogastrium while the spleen and the pancreas will begin to grow at the dorsal mesogastrium. The greater omentum will also become part of the dorsal mesogastrium. The greater omentum is known to be a part of the organ that somehow resembles an apron. Its main function is to connect the stomach to the abdominal wall.

The stomach is the principal organ that breaks down food as it enters the digestive system. Digestion is the disintegration of insoluble food molecules into small water-soluble food molecules so they can be absorbed into the watery blood plasma. The stomach plays a significant role in digestion.


While it serves as a temporary reservoir of foods, it also participates in the control of appetite, digestion, and the absorption of food. Stomach acid will encourage the production of mucus to protect the cell wall from being damaged by hydrochloric acid.

The primary function of the stomach is to digest food partly so that it can move to the small intestine. The stomach breaks down food by secreting stomach acid and enzymes to digest food and churn the food by the contraction of the stomach muscles. When the food enters the mouth, it is chewed, mixed with saliva, and swallowed, and it is swallowed and enters the esophagus.


Food travels down the throat and enters the stomach, passing through a muscular valve called the lower esophageal sphincter. It is further broken down by stomach acid and churned into a substance known as chyme. Then, food travels the pyloric sphincter and passes in the small intestine where it can be further digested.

Dietary Fiber does not digest or absorb into the body. Instead, it passes through the stomach and intestines relatively intact. Fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains. Berries raisins, pears and apples do not breakdown in the body.


Vegetables such as broccoli and squash contain cell walls that do not digest in the body because the cell walls are made up; of cellulose, which is not digestible by humans. Other non-digestible fibers include hemicelluloses, pectin, gum, and mucilage. Bran is a high fiber grain that isn’t digested in the body. Both insoluble (wheat, bran, veggies and whole grains) and soluble fiber (oats, fruits, veggies, and beans) are not digestible.
