Next to the liver, the most important organ in our digestive system is the pancreas, yet it weighs only about one-twentieth of that of the liver. This small, elongated gland is located above the navel between the posterior stomach wall and the spine; below it lies the horseshoe-shaped loop of the first part of the small intestine. The left end touches the spleen and the left kidney. Small it may be, but it performs two important functions, producing an external secretion to be poured into the duodenum and an internal one to be poured into the blood.
Neither the bile nor the pancreatic enzymes are fully efficient if the juice in the small intestine and the bacterial flora are not normal. So you can see that the digestive process involves a complicated series of relationships between many individual factors. If everyone understood this fact and fully appreciated the implications, they would no doubt make a greater effort to live more carefully and watch what they eat and drink. Excesses endanger the wonderful interplay of the digestive organs and the glandular functions.
