Sources & Bodily Effects of Drugs
DRUG-Any chemical substance taken into the body for the purpose of affecting body function
Our body recognizes drugs as "foreign substances." It removes them, usually in urine or in bowel movements. Many drugs are removed unchanged by the kidneys in urine. Other drugs must be processed by the liver. Enzymes in the liver change drug molecules, and then they are eliminated in urine or in bowel movements.
