We come bearing with some Astonishing News for you all!!
Your body has an extra organ which you were not aware.
Scientists have classified a new organ in human body. Well, the fact is, it was just hiding in plain sight. It is called as as the mesentery, it was previously thought to be just a few fragmented structures in the digestive system.
The structure of the organ was just known clearly to the doctors ,but it’s functionality is not completely studied till now.
The evidence for the organ’s reclassification is now published in The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology . It is a “double fold of peritoneum”. The peritoneum is the lining of the abdominal cavity that holds our intestine to the wall of our abdomen.
“In the paper, which has been peer reviewed and assessed, we are now saying we have an organ in the body which hasn’t been acknowledged as such to date,”
said J Calvin Coffey, a researcher from the University Hospital Limerick in Ireland, who first discovered that the mesentery was an organ.
Doctors believe that a thorough understanding with proper examination will help in solving abdominal and digestive diseases
The world’s best-known series of medical textbooks, Gray’s Anatomy, has even been updated to include the new definition.
