Please help, my friend and i have a long standing argument over gravity and digestion. While my friend agrees that gravity is not needed for digestion he believes that gravity helps digest food quicker or easier. I always thought gravity has no affect at all on digestion. We checked a university biology book which states that "digestion does not rely on gravity..." while my friend agrees with this, that digestion does not RELY on gravity, Gravity ASSISTS digestion. For the sake of our friendship and sanity, can you please let us know. "Does gravity help/hinder digestion?" Dave
