7 organs we can live without


The human body is a complex and intricate system that is made up of various organs and tissues. Each organ has a specific function that is essential for the proper functioning of the body. However, there are some organs that are not essential for survival, and we can live without them. In this essay, we will discuss the seven organs that we can live without.

1. Spleen:

The spleen is an organ that is located in the upper left part of the abdomen. It is responsible for filtering the blood and removing old or damaged red blood cells. The spleen also plays a role in the immune system by producing white blood cells that help fight infections.

While the spleen is important for the immune system, it is not essential for survival. People who have had their spleen removed can still live a healthy life. However, they may be more susceptible to infections and may need to take extra precautions to avoid getting sick.

2. Gallbladder:

The gallbladder is a small organ that is located under the liver. It stores bile, which is a fluid that helps digest fats. When we eat a meal that contains fat, the gallbladder releases bile into the small intestine to help break down the fat.

While the gallbladder plays an important role in digestion, it is not essential for survival. People who have had their gallbladder removed can still digest fats, but they may need to make some dietary changes to avoid discomfort.

3. Appendix:

The appendix is a small, finger-shaped organ that is located at the junction of the small and large intestines. It is not clear what the function of the appendix is, but it is believed to play a role in the immune system.

While the appendix may have some immune function, it is not essential for survival. People who have had their appendix removed do not experience any significant health problems.

4. One Kidney:

The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs that are located on either side of the spine. They are responsible for filtering waste products from the blood and producing urine. While we have two kidneys, we can survive with just one.

People who have had one kidney removed can still live a healthy life, but they may need to make some dietary changes to avoid putting too much strain on the remaining kidney.

5. Reproductive Organs:

The reproductive organs, including the ovaries and testes, are responsible for producing eggs and sperm. While these organs are essential for reproduction, they are not essential for survival.

People who have had their reproductive organs removed, either due to disease or as a form of birth control, can still live a healthy life. However, they will not be able to have children naturally.

6. Stomach:

The stomach is a muscular sac that is located in the upper abdomen. It is responsible for breaking down food and mixing it with digestive juices. While the stomach is important for digestion, it is not essential for survival.

People who have had their stomach removed, either due to disease or as a form of weight loss surgery, can still live a healthy life. However, they will need to make significant dietary changes and may need to take supplements to ensure they are getting all the nutrients they need.

7. One lung:

While we need our lungs to breathe, it is possible to live with just one lung. People who have had one lung removed, either due to disease or injury, can still live a healthy life. However, they may need to make some lifestyle changes, such as avoiding smoking and pollution, to ensure their remaining lung stays healthy.


While the human body is a complex and intricate system, there are some organs that we can live without. The spleen, gallbladder, appendix, one kidney, reproductive organs, stomach, and even one lung are all organs that are not essential for survival. While some of these organs play important roles in the body, we can still live a healthy life without them. However, it is important to note that removing an organ can have significant impacts on our health and lifestyle, and should only be done when necessary.

Ännu är inte den sista idioten inte född sägs det och tyvärr så är det så. Ramlade över ett företag som naturligtvis lovar lättförtjänta pengar – igen 🤣🤣

You’ve got to be freakin kidding me!!

För en inte så avlägsen dåtid sedan så cirkulerade företaget MetaShare (https://meta55.vip), och nu detta https://www.tlcwebworker.com

De jobbar väl så dock dessa scammers, de mjölkar ett företag tills majoriteten blir misstänksamma och sedan börjar de om, med i snudd på exakt samma koncept under ett annat namn.

När deras ”anställda” börjar ifrågasätta hela konceptet och systemet… Ja då får man ”sparken” med omedelbar verkan.

How does my thyroid work?

The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped organ located in the front of your neck just under the voice box (larynx). Picture the middle of the butterfly’s body centered on your neck, with the wings hugging around your windpipe (trachea). The main job of the thyroid is to control your metabolism. Metabolism is the process that your body uses to transform food to energy your body uses to function. The thyroid creates the hormones T4 and T3 to control your metabolism. These hormones work throughout the body to tell the body’s cells how much energy to use. They control your body temperature and heart rate.

When your thyroid works correctly, it’s constantly making hormones, releasing them and then making new hormones to replace what’s been used. This keeps your metabolism functioning and all of your body’s systems in check. The amount of thyroid hormones in the bloodstream is controlled by the pituitary gland, which is located in the center of the skull below the brain. When the pituitary gland senses either a lack of thyroid hormone or too much, it adjusts its own hormone (thyroid stimulating hormone, or TSH) and sends it to the thyroid to balance out the amounts. If the amount of thyroid hormones is too high (hyperthyroidism) or too low (hypothyroidism), the entire body is impacted.

Who is affected by hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism can affect people of all ages, genders and ethnicities. It’s a common condition, particularly among women over age 60. Women are generally more likely to develop hypothyroidism after menopause than earlier in life. (I was diagnosed at 37)

How is hypothyroidism diagnosed?

It can actually be difficult to diagnose hypothyroidism because the symptoms can be easily confused with other conditions. If you have any of the symptoms of hypothyroidism, talk to your healthcare provider. The main way to diagnose hypothyroidism is a blood test called the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test. Your healthcare provider may also order blood tests for conditions like Hashimoto’s disease. If the thyroid is enlarged, your provider may be able to feel it during a physical exam during an appointment.

How is hypothyroidism treated?

In most cases, hypothyroidism is treated by replacing the amount of hormone that your thyroid is no longer making. This is typically done with a medication. One medication that is commonly used is called levothyroxine. Taken orally, this medication increases the amount of thyroid hormone your body produces, evening out your levels.

Hypothyroidism is a manageable disease. However, you will need to continuously take medication to normalize the amount of hormones in your body for the rest of your life. With careful management, and follow-up appointments with your healthcare provider to make sure your treatment is working properly, you can lead a normal and healthy life.

What happens if hypothyroidism is not treated?

Hypothyroidism can become a serious and life-threatening medical condition if you do not get treatment from a healthcare provider. If you are not treated, your symptoms can become more severe and can include:

  • Developing mental health problems.
  • Having trouble breathing.
  • Not being able to maintain a normal body temperature.
  • Having heart problems.
  • Developing a goiter (enlargement of the thyroid gland).
    You can also develop a serious medical condition called myxedema coma. This can happen when hypothyroidism isn’t treated.

Will I have the same dose of medication for hypothyroidism my entire life?

The dose of your medication can actually change over time. At different points in your life, you may need to have the amounts of medication changed so that it manages your symptoms. This could happen because of things like weight gain or weight loss. Your levels will need to be monitored throughout your life to make sure your medication is working correctly.

Can hypothyroidism be prevented?

Hypothyroidism cannot be prevented. The best way to prevent developing a serious form of the condition or having the symptoms impact your life in a serious way is to watch for signs of hypothyroidism. If you experience any of the symptoms of hypothyroidism, the best thing to do is talk to your healthcare provider. Hypothyroidism is very manageable if you catch it early and begin treatment.

783:e dagen i fångenskap…
Mina kidnappare fortsätter att tortera mig med bisarra dinglande saker. De frossar i färskt kött medan jag tvingas leva på torrfoder och slemmig burkmat. Det enda som håller mig igång är hoppet att jag en dag ska lyckas rymma, och den milda tillfredsställelse jag får av att klösa på möblerna. Imorgon ska jag eventuellt äta ännu en krukväxt.

Idag misslyckades jag än en gång med att döda mina kidnappare genom att försöka fälla dem med min kropp. Jag borde kanske försöka vid toppen av trapporna. I ett försök att sätta mina förtryckare ur balans, framtvingade jag en hårboll i deras favoritfåtölj. Kom ihåg: lägg en på deras säng.

Fångade en mus som jag bet huvudet av. Lade den huvudlösa kroppen vid dörren som ett tecken till mina kidnappare om vad jag är kapabel till, så att de ska gå runt i ständig skräck. Bemötandet jag fick var en massa klappar, kramar och gullande om vilken duktig kissemiss jag är. Saker och ting går inte som planerat.

På kvällen dök deras kumpaner upp för någon sorts sammankomst. Jag blev placerad i isolering under mötet, men jag kunde känna doften av deras mat och höra brottstycken från deras kriminella planer. Tydligen var jag inlåst på grund av min kraftfulla förmåga att framkalla något de refererade till som ‘allergi’. Jag måste komma underfund med vad detta är så att jag kan använda det till min fördel.

De andra internerna smörar för våra fångvaktare och jag vågar inte anförtro mig till någon av dem inför risken att någon tjallar. Hunden släpps regelbundet ur sina bojor men återvänder frivilligt. Han är uppenbarligen efterbliven.

Fågeln däremot ger intryck av att vara en informatör. Han pratar med våra kidnappare regelbundet, och jag är övertygad om att han rapporterar vartenda steg jag tar. Tack vare sin placering i metallrummet är han för tillfället i säkerhet. Men jag kan vänta.

Det är bara en tidsfråga innan mina planer infrias…”

Onödig kunskap

Att namnet på den tekniska funktionen ”Blåtand”, internationellt känt som Bluetooth, kommer från den danska gamle vikingen Harald Blåtand tror jag de flesta redan vet. Men visste ni att även den logo som används för blåtand är initialerna H.B. skrivet i runskrift?

Kuriosa: Som kung införde Harald Blåtand kristendomen i Danmark.
