Removing the appendix might prevent you from getting appendicitis, but does that mean that surgeons should start harvesting them for that sake?
I have been begging the surgeons to please remove my appendix. They want to wait until it becomes “acute.”
I have “chronic appendicitis” meaning it does become infected and swollen off-and-on (Margaret Hullahan in M*A*S*H had it in one show) and usually it settles down again with an antibiotic and fasting. But, it could burst and require emergency surgery.
I live in the jungle. Emergencies are not good. Wouldn’t it be better just to have the thing out?
In regards to the foreskin, God commanded the removal and it doesn’t serve any purpose. Why not remove it when there are benefits?
