If you ever wondered how your body handled all those packaged ramen noodles you ate during college, this video s for you. Stefani Bardin, a TEDxManhattan fellow, wants to learn how digestion differs between food chock full of preservatives and food that can actually go bad in a day.
To create this video, she and her collaborator swallowed a camera pill along with their meals (which included Gatorade and Gummi bears). The camera here, called an M2A pill (for mouth to anus ) produced a stop-motion video down to the small intestine. Such cameras have limited medical uses, but boy, they sure do create a fun Fantastic Voyage -like experience. The video’s actual alimentary angle begins at the two-minute mark.
Next on the list ought to be hot dogs, considering all the chemicals in them.
