i only quickly scanned the article, but please say the order of the units - not just that it is in between the other two units.
I think more could be added on which vitamins, minerals (major and minor) and other types of food are absorbed here
I think it would be great if we added a page on jejunal and illeum differences but i am too stupid to know how to do that...
This page needs the function of the jejunum.
Should there be a References in other media section here as well? Or could it be added that (Woody Harrelson's character) Ed Monix in Semi-Pro punches (Will Ferrell's character) Jackie Moon in the Jejunum in order to make him gag and throw up. The reference was from a wikipedia article about Semi-Pro: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semi-Pro) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:36, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
mesentery & mobility
The article currently reads: "The jejunum and the ileum are suspended by mesentery which gives the bowel great mobility within the abdomen."
Does the connection to mesentery really make it more mobile? If anything, I'd think that the mesentery limits the jejunum's mobility, even though it doesn't limit it very much. Is there particular reasoning behind this statement? Faunablues (talk) 01:08, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
