PS 3 question list Chapter4 1 Linda has heard that the acidic environment of the stomach is similar to that of a car battery If the stomach is so acidic why doesn t the acid eat away at the stomach lining and cause holes in the stomach A The stomach is lined with a layer of mucus that protects it B The stomach produces bicarbonate which neutralizes the acid in the stomach and protects it C The stomach produces bacteria which denature the acid in the stomach and protect it D The stomach contracts during peristalsis which pushes the acid out of the stomach and protects it 2 Because of stress
