The human body can take a beating: you can still live without these organs | Healthy

The human body can take a beating, say neurologist Marieke Visser and professor of acute medicine Prabath Nanayakkara, both working at the Amsterdam UMC. “It’s amazing how well the body compensates when you remove organs,” says Nanayakkara. “Take the kidneys. Remove one and the other kidney just works harder. The same is true of the lungs, spleen, part of the liver, and almost all organs. Of course you cannot remove everything, but the body has enormous adaptability. ”
