HI, Which one of the following is a long tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach?

1 Doctor Answered
The mouth is the first digestive organ that food enters, and the saliva starts the digestion of the food. The esophagus is the long narrow tube that carries food from the oral cavity to the stomach. The stomach stores the food until the small intestine is empty.
