Scientists in Dutch recently discovered a new organ developing in the human body when they were treating cancer patients.
The organ is a small organ that has not been there but only recently has it been found in humanbeing, the name of the organ is called "tubarial gland" and is found in the skull the region where the nose and the throat meet.
After looking at heads of more than 100 individuals who were under treatment of prostate cancer, they discovered the new organ. They also directed a number of cadavers and ascertained the organ is there.
According to the scientists, the function of the organ is to lubricate the nasopharynx and oropharynx.
The discovery of the new organ has made many to believe that evolution could actually be a process that is still happening to human beings. The organ however can be seen through ICT scan and not by visible eyes.
Do you think the new organ actually means that evolution could still be happening and that new organs will continue being discovered? Let me hear from you in the comment section below.
