#17 – Redundant Organs
There are several organs in our body that come in pairs. Think kidneys, testicles, lungs, ovaries, etc. However, one of each of these organs that come in pairs is a redundant organ. This means that it is completely plausible to live without these “paired” organs.
A human can lead a completely normal and healthy life if one of his kidneys, testicles, lungs, and other “paired” organs gets removed. There are also other “single” organs that could partially be removed and we could still live without them. Such organs include liver, intestines, stomach, and so on.
