7) The lining of the stomach is renewed every ___ days.

a) 5
b) 15
c) 25
d) 50

The answer is a) 5.

The stomach lining and skin are much alike.
The lining of the stomach, however, has a more demanding function
to transfer and transform foodstuffs into nutrients
which the body can pass into the bloodstream
to be carried to the tissues for their feeding.

In a matter of hours, the lining of the stomach is renewed.

How is it that ulcers can form next to healthy stomach tissue -
which turns over ever five days?
How is it that these ulcers then can take months to heal?
