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.

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

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

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.

God created us perfectly. They have a purpose or He would not have created us with these parts.

If nature didn’t think we needed it, we wouldn’t have it so please do not disparage the human body. It’s a pretty amazing machine!

I won't deem any body parts as useless. God gave us our bodies and they are perfect!

the appendix is another odd body part that does nothing

What about your appendix?? That doesn’t serve much purpose for humans anymore. I can’t say o agree with someone the discussion. Tonsil do sti serve a purpose- they are part of our immune system, sinuses allow us to walk around without dragging a hugely heavy head if our cranium Was solid bone. Arrector pili muscles do help us stay a little warmer- no much but some.

Aparna Lahiri, I agree, We would not be given something in or on our bodies if it did not serve a purpose. Thank you for saying so. There is no purpose that the people who wrote this article. But everything has a purpose even if you may not know what it is.

Hey fella, there are on useless body parts. You may not yet know their uses but they are not useless. Nature does not create useless things.

tlbaker, Or could be, that He has a sense of humor and is curious what we will do with these things over time. Such as, now that I'm getting older I have hairs that grow where they never did before.

Very interesting I like the answer regarding the Gall Bladder because I am waiting for a, Gall bladder operation to remove gall stones. So it has helped me to make an important decision. Thank you.

Paulette Landry VanVolkom, It seems I have more vacant spaces since I got older. 🤣

Paulette Landry VanVolkom, agreed, but it seems some have more vacant spaces that is good for them and everyone around them.

Jim Harris, wiggling his ears was my father’s favorite way to distract crying kids. Ear wiggling muscles are ESSENTIAL 😃

I can wiggle my ears, independently or together. Those muscles I still use.

I do know tonsils have a role. Used to be taken out regularly but they can be a defense organ in illnesses!
