Egestion in humans

Post by criscea » Sun Mar 13, 2005 11:38 pm

I need to find another example of egestion in the human body apart from defaecation. It needs to be egestion not excretion or secretion.
Anyone knows??
Thanks a lot!

In my bio book egestion and defecation are given as synonims.
Ingestion: putting food in
Egestion: getting food out
I doubt there is another form

PS: Maybe vomiting... :D :D :D
