I have a question for all my doctor friends…
Apparently, you folks have found a new organ in our body.
Let me get this straight – you have been performing surgery on us for over a hundred years – I mean literally cutting us open every which way – millions of us over the years – and sometimes even leaving knives and tools inside forcing you to cut us open again and NOW you say there might be another organ?????
What? The organ was playing hide and seek with you all these years or what?
No wonder you call your professions “practice” 🙂
P.S. This is a joke. Don’t take this seriously. I still need to visit you for all the known organs that hurt me 🙂
Of course it’s a freaking practice!!! Do you do all things perfectly every day!?!?
Typical misdirected news article; I believe they are talking about finding an extra layer in the tissue that cushions every organ via confocal electron microscopy….
Apparently, the new organ was hiding in plain-sight…just below the skin and above the intestines !!
It is not a new organ discovered , rather it’s sort of saying , ‘ OK , metallurgy is a new subject from now on , as it has some specific characteristics from inorganic chemistry ! “
Here’s an interview with those who made the discovery. This answers some of the questions laymen like me might have. Watch https://www.sciencefriday.com/segments/the-interstitium-a-new-organ-that-could-explain-the-mysteries-of-the-human-body/
