JBN.CO.ID ■ The Chairman of the DPD RI, La Nyalla Mattalitti, revealed that Menkopolhukam Wiranto had to undergo a 47 centimeter intestine cut due to the stabbing on Thursday (10/10/2019) in Pandeglang.
Then how long is actually the human intestine? Disitat from alodokter, the human intestine extends from the end of the stomach to the anus. The intestine itself is divided into two parts, namely the small intestine and large intestine.
The small intestine has a length of about 6 meters with a diameter of 2.5 centimeters.
This small intestine is divided into three parts, namely the duodenum (duodenum), jejunum (empty intestine), and ileum (intestinal absorption). Mostly, the process of digestion and absorption of food nutrients occurs in the small intestine.
While the large intestine has a length of about 1.5 meters with a diameter of 7.5 cm. The intestine is tasked with processing leftover food that cannot be digested or absorbed, absorbs water and electrolytes from leftover food that has been digested in the small intestine, and holds feces for later excretion during bowel movements.
So if totaled, the length of the human intestine is 7.5 meters or 750 centimeters.
