If we look at the human body, we can easily see that every organ has a specific function and purpose. But the human body is also known to have some incredible abilities, and because of that, we are here to tell you that there are some organs you can live without.

What you just heard is completely true; we have organs that are not mandatory for our survival. Some people lose them because of an accident, others because of illness, and there are also some who are simply born without those organs.

600 muscles, 206 bones, and thousands of tendons – the human body is truly a marvel of this world. Stay with us on Mind Bending Facts and find out more about the organs you can live without!

  1. I have Graves’ disease and I take Levothyroxine daily for hypothyroidism. My left eye protrudes, but my right eye does not. I was treated with iodine for hyperthyroidism and was overdosed that killed my thyroid, as it was explained to me over 30 years ago. I’m recently learning about TED, as seen on TV and reading about it here and watching the video. I have not spoken with my Ophthalmologists about it. My annual eye appointment is scheduled in another five months. I would like to begin taking the drug but, I’m unclear how it would affect my right eye since it does not protrude. I really appreciate the information you have shared and, I thank you very much.

  2. This was a very interesting article. You named only 6 organs that humans can live without, I thought of an additional 6! Here is my list….. Tonsils, adenoids, prostate, uterus, ovaries, appendix.

  3. I don’t recall seeing the appendix being mentioned. The latter is also something we could live without. And even though females require their reproductive organs (uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes) to make babies, they can still live without having them. Also, we could live without part of our liver, as our livers regenerate.
