BF137001

Molecules from food in the digestive tract are absorbed through the walls of capillaries. These molecules then move through the circulatory system to all parts of the body.

43%

BF132001

Molecules from food are absorbed through the walls of microscopically small blood vessels (capillaries). These molecules then move through the circulatory system to all parts of the body.

39%

BF123003

Molecules from food are absorbed into microscopically small blood vessels (capillaries) located in the walls of the digestive tract and then pass into larger blood vessels that carry the molecules to other parts of the body.

BF133001

Molecules from food and molecules of oxygen move from the mouth and the nose to cells of the body through a series of blood vessels, including veins, arteries, and microscopically small blood vessels (capillaries), that extend throughout the body.

54%

BF134001

Molecules from food and molecules of oxygen are carried by a network of arteries, veins, and microscopically small blood vessels (capillaries) to the rest of the body.

43%

BF144002

Molecules from food travel from the mouth to the digestive tract and then travel through a series of blood vessels to the cells in the rest of the body.
