All about Vomit (Vomitus)
FACTS: It may be repulsive, but vomiting is a useful defense mechanism to protect your body from poisons, microbes, allergens and other gut irritations. Smells, anxiety or motion may also trigger it. Powerful muscle contractions force open the esophageal sphincter and compress the stomach, sending unwanted contents upward and out.
There is even a vomiting center in the brain called the area postrema that receives signals from your gut’s nervous system. Vomitus is the material that is ejected by vomiting. The act of vomiting is also called emesis. Barf, puke, hurl, upchuck… whatever you call it, vomiting can help keep you healthy!
