Human Anatomy - Giving Up Your Appendix & Still Surviving

By Michelle Taylor

With the furtherance of todays engineering science in both practice of medicine and scientific discipline, its not stunning to hear that we can survive and operate rather comfortably without several of our organs. Personally I prefer to remain all of mine. There are instances though that removal of an organ can actually save a life, for instance, if the organ is inflammatory. Many individuals ask so if you can survive and work without so many of the organs why did we have them in the first place? What Is More, they have their own arenas in our body.

Some organ removals are rather ordinary and numerous of us have already knew this. There is the tonsil and adenoid removal that seems to be a childhood occurrence rather than in adulthood. The function of the tonsils is to aid to forbid the invasion of bacteria from getting in through the mouth and nose, where it can then go on to do damage to some other regions of the body. The adenoids help to forbid it from coming in the nose. Sometimes these organs get so overloaded, and went weak from being forever inflamed so they cannot do their job right. So the most possible answer was to plainly remove them. In todays medicine this is not done so freely as it formerly was. The human anatomy is being examine at much closer by many scientists.

The appendix is some other organ that appears to be commonly removed. If you were to talk to an individual who has had a binge of appendicitis ,before getting the appendix removed, they will tell you they do not miss it all. Acute appendicitis is very very bad. The task of the appendix for many years was never clear. After all they were part of the human anatomy and thats all that appeared to matter. Now in recent studies medical scientists consider they may have discovered the very cause and function of the appendix.

They now believe that it is the appendix job to manufacture good bacteria that must be found in the gut. This good bacteria is very important to keeping absolute health and body procedures. There are instances when the gut gets exposed of the good bacteria, possibly through unwellness or disease. This is where the appendix gets in, to multiply the good bacterial so in re enters the gut and gets it back performing normally once again.

Some Other common organ removal, amongst women is the removal of the womb. At times in this procedure, the ovaries which are a region of this may be remain. Then on the other hand, at times the ovaries are taken out and the womb left. We all know that these are reproductive organs and formerly they have processed their aim, its no problem getting rid of them. This is not actually completely true. This organ play a big part when it comes to female hormones, and affects the menopausal stage a woman goes through.

So you can see that these are some of the more ordinary organs that can be quite well removed and our bodies still operate without them. Then also you can visualize that they all do serve a very important purpose. This raises an amusing question. Although we are well without them, would be all that more in even better health, if we still had them?
