7 useless body parts you have now for no reason

The human body is a really cool thing. Evolution has created this system that works in harmony with the brain. However, believe it or not, you have multiple body parts on you right now that actually serve no function, but you still have them!


I haven’t included wisdom teeth, appendixes and tailbones to the list as they are too obvious. Instead, I want you to learn something really curious that surprised me.



So those were 7 body parts you have for no reason. What do you think about them? Write your comments below!


And what do you think about that? Do you have any interesting facts to share? If so, tell us in the comments below, please!

Nothing is extra useless body part. Every organ that is mentioned here has got a role to play. Dont publish such misinformative articles to make common men fools.

Body hair serves to help us stay warm. Just ask any cancer survivor about when they lost all their hair.

Sinuses serve TWO functions: to moisten the air to facilitate absorption of oxygen and to cool the brain. Don't be too quick to dismiss these organs as useless just because we can live without them. For example, once dismissed as a useless vestigial organ, science has shown that the appendix serves to store "good" bacteria used in digestion. One can live without it with the help of diet and pills.

I think the head would be much heavier if it were solid bone and did not have vacant places.

Marcia Madison, the appendix is another of the body’s filters. It IS necessary, but not essential.

Absolutely nonsense and contradictory to science and medical anatomy. There is no useless parts in our body, period!

Hmmmm - as a teacher of anatomy and physiology, this article leaves a lot to be desired. The appendix, for example, contains a resevoir of our gut biome, so if we have a bout of diarrhea that strips the intestines of gut flora, the appendix can repopulate it. This was discovered in about 2010, so the article writer clearly hasn't done enough research - just simply decided it was an "obvious" one and therefore not included in detail but only mentioned. The gall bladder secretes bile when we eat to trigger the production and release of pancreatic digestive enzymes - this ensures the digestive enzymes are available at the right time. Also, the secretion of bile when we eat triggers peristalsis in the intestine, moving the food particles through and enabling absorption and assimilation of nutrients. I could go on, but will stop here and simply say the article should be entitled "Body parts we can live without" rather than "Body parts you have for no reason." Very disappointing article indeed.

You know what gets me? So many and apparently yourself, push evolution as fact when it is only a theory and taking God’s creation of all you see out of the equation. Teaching should give humans a choice by showing all alternatives.
