A new organ was defined in the human body by scientists


This organ is far from fragmented and complex. It is simply one continuous structure,” the study published in  The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology says. Its function is still poorly understood, and studying it could be the key to better understanding and treatment of abdominal and digestive disease. The world’s best-known series of medical textbooks, Gray’s Anatomy, has even been updated to include the new definition. Mesentery is a double fold of peritoneum – the lining of the abdominal cavity – that attaches our intestine to the wall of our abdomen, and keeps everything locked in place. “This is relevant universally as it affects all of us,” the study said.
