That's not a new theory.

I thought they existed to contain extraneous information that would cause the primary body of the text to become unwieldy and unreadable.

Researchers now say that the appendix acts as a safe house for good bacteria.

Yeah, like 6 1/2 years ago... Way to be on top of the ball, humansarefree.com

I thought it was just a section of the body where it can look shiat up?  I'm so confused...

Get with the times. Creationists have been using this for years to try and suggest that the appendix isn't vestigial.
 
2014-02-11 01:50:52 PM
I remember reading about this like 10 years ago or more.
 
2014-02-11 01:52:27 PM
They're just now finding out what the appendix does and they expect me to believe they know how old the Earth is?

I always thought it had something to do with digesting raw meat. Of course, I'm no expert.

Mine's still hangin' inside there... but now I want my tonsils back.

We are made of star-stuff.  And poop bacteria.

I think I'll just try not to get cholera or dysentery, because my appendix is long gone and it ain't coming back.

I'm not giving up on my theory that we're descended from marsupials and the appendix is a remnant of the pouch!

Mine tried to kill me so good riddance.

Mine ruptured last year.  Then the surgeon screwed up removing it, and I ended up being hospitalized three times.  For such a minor, routine surgery, I was out of work for a month and left with a $60K hospital bill.
 
2014-02-11 01:57:45 PM
The comments on that article were... special. Very special.
 
2014-02-11 01:58:59 PM
"So it's sort of a fun thing that we've found, but we don't want it to cause any harm, we don't want people to say, 'oh, my appendix has a function', so I'm not going to go to the doctor, I'm going to try to hang onto it."

I could totally see some Jenny McCarthy type latching on to this tidbit of information and discouraging appendectomies so that our bodies can hang on to the little thing that keeps the good bacteria safe.

this is not even remotely news. it was mentioned as one of the reasons in my high school biology book back in the 90s.

Well subby, maybe it was news to you, but since you get your news from what is basically an offshoot of the timecube and WHATDOESITMEAN, I'm not surprised you never bothered hearing about it.

sadly, in a 'for profit' hospital system the best outcome for the patient isn't necessarily the most profitable one for the hospital.

CSB:

My parents had theirs taken out.....Dad in the 1950s, and Mom in the 1990s.  The difference in medical technology is amusing.

Mom has a small scar, and Dad looks like he survived being stabbed by Jason Voorhees.

I was born without one. I use it to prove evolution.

And if you like your appendix, you can keep it.

I had mine out about 18 months ago.  Things are going to start happening to me now...

Things, of course, being cholera and dysentery.

Damn. Was hoping that said a $60k settlement. Sorry to hear that. I hope you're able to hold them accountable.

I had mine taken out last year. They took it out through my navel. No scars.
