what is a colon?
Asked by simran sakhre | 1st Jun, 2014, 03:48: PM
Colon is a part of the large intestine of the digestive system. It is situated just below the stomach on the left side. It is much broader than the ileum and slightly longer than a metre. It runs up the abdomen on the right, crosses to the left below the stomach and down on the left side. The walls of the colon are made up of involuntary muscles. Movement of theses muscles pushes the food into the large intestine.
