Description:

Scientists have long wondered what the human appendix does. Now, Duke University immunologist William Parker and his colleagues have proposed a theory: that it's a safe house for the helpful bacteria in our gut. They've found that the appendix is especially rich in these good bacteria. And the organ's thin, narrow shape may shut out harmful infections.
