WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE

APPENDIXES?

The vermiform appendix—or, simply, the appendix—is a

wormlike tube that has only one end and is connected to the

caecum in the right lower abdomen of humans Its name is

from the Latin word meaning “wormlike ”

The appendix is prone to becoming infected, an ailment

known as appendicitis that causes it to become inflamed

and painful, at which point it must be removed—via an

operation known as an appendectomy—because it bursts

and floods the bloodstream with toxins, which can prove

fatal Appendicitis is less common in people whose diet is

high in fiber, consisting of a lot of fruit and vegetables Given

that the appendix is so often removed without any later consequences

to the person, people often question why we have

one in the first place

The purpose and function of the appendix are not fully

understood and remain subjects of debate Some believe the

appendix plays a role in our immune systems and is a useful

organ of the lymphatic system, others think it has a function

that has not yet been discovered and still others think that

it’s needed for only a short time after we are born However,

the traditional and still prevailing view is that it was

an organ that played a practical role in the digestive systems

of our vegetarian ancestors It has not disappeared through

evolution and has remained with us as a vestigial organ, having

no function today This theory is supported by the fact

that some modern animals have a similar organ that functions

to process fiber, just as the appendix might have done

for our ancestors
