Maybe the stupidest question? But for GI bleeders, or even just tonsillectomies or wisdom teeth removal, etc., why can't, or doesn't, our stomach just digest blood like any other "food." Why does it almost always get thrown...
But I still don't understand what "chemical" is in blood that is so irritating to our GI system?
Sorry, still confused.
