If you have ever poured oil into a glass of water, you have seen that these two substances do not mix. Knowing this, how do lipids move through the body so they can be digested or absorbed? How are lipids stored in the body?

  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "lipid digestion" to get these possible sources:

    http://arbl.cvmbs.colostate.edu/hbooks/pathphys/digestion/smallgut/absorb_lipids.html
    http://www.annecollins.com/digestive-system/digestion-of-fats.htm

    http://www.rpi.edu/dept/bcbp/molbiochem/MBWeb/mb2/part1/lipoprot.htm

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
