The purpose of the human appendix is still somewhat of a mystery, however, various theories have been suggested as to what it could be. Some believed it once harbored colonies of bacteria that helped us digest important nutrients in pre-historic diets. Others believe that it plays some role in the production of anti-bodies and white blood cells. The argument could be made that it’s sole purpose is to kill its host, as a ruptured appendix, if not treated properly, is fatal.
The appendix has no purpose. It is located between the large and small intestines, off the cecum. In a previous stage of human evolution it is thought to have aided in leaf digestion. However, it is a vestigial organ, meaning that it no longer has a function.
Some think it has a role in immune function.
