Gut health

You might need your appendix more than you think

Researchers have recently discovered that the appendix is actually designed to protect your good bacteria in the gut. When the gut is affected by a bout of diarrhoea or other illness that cleans out the intestines, the good bacteria in the appendix can repopulate the digestive system and keep you healthy.
