When you have a stomach virus and it causes extreme bowel movements to the point of almost pure stomach acid, does this kill off the bacteria in our intestinal tracks?
Can anyone please tell me where is exactly the stomach in this image? This is a sagittal section from the University of Michigan Visible Human Browsers. Thank you.
I ask this because the stomach plays a role in sterilising food and hence without one it follows that perhaps one would be more prone to getting intestinal infections.
