  – These are good bacteria that are helpful.
  – These bacteria make vitamins including vitamin K.
• Water and undigested food such as fiber
  enter the large intestines.
  – Whatever is not absorbed is readied for
• Ends in a large tube called the rectum.
  – Waste material is compressed and eliminated
