You spelled oesophagus: esophagus. i am worried whether i should trust this website if it's meant to be medical and they can't spell one of the most important things in the body!
Moderator's reply: Most of our writers are from the United States. "Esophagus" is the correct spelling in the U.S., while "oesophagus" is the correct spelling in the United Kingdom.
