To remove the tonsils and the Appendix is all the same what to cut a piece of the immune system
The movement of scientific thought in the NINETEENTH and twentieth centuries was so rapid that scientists have fallen into a certain arrogance. Everything in the human body not found an explanation, immediately announced rudimentary, ‘extra’: tonsils, thymus, pineal gland, the Appendix... In the early twentieth century after the opening of the Ilya Mechnikov putrefactive fermentation in the gut have agreed to the fact that it is not necessary and the colon, and surgeons cut it out of more than a thousand supporters advanced science…
Fifty nine million seven hundred eighty seven thousand one hundred nineteen
But gradually science has rehabilitated the "rudiments" one by one.
Currently, the Ukrainian and American oncologists have come to almost identical conclusions: people with tonsils removed (tonsils) cancer affects three times as often. The same thing, they believe, is happening with those who have lost their Appendix. Americans, by the way, in his time all the more zealous in the fight against the "extra" bodies. Glands, and along with the Appendix, they cut straight to all newborns. And when in 50-ies of the last century there was a polio epidemic, these kids are rooting hard for and died first.
And what is interesting: by the time conscription — walenty were below peers by 20 cm, frail, sickly and mentally retarded. Then realized that tonsils and the Appendix play an important role in immunity. Now the American experts admit that out of a million people in the US whose tonsils have been removed, 999 thousands it was no good. To remove the tonsils and the Appendix is all the same what to cut a piece of the immune system.
Studies have shown that the role of tonsils is to protect the body from infections. On them settles more than 70% of the harmful germs that enter our body along with the air. In addition, the tonsils produce biological substances that help the synthesis of cells involved in hematopoiesis.
Those who parted with glands, more common in inflammatory and allergic diseases of the upper respiratory tract (pharyngitis, rhinitis, sinusitis, bronchitis), influenza and other diseases. And recently Ukrainian scientists have declared that tonsils resist cancer: after reviewing hundreds of case histories, experts have found that patients with tonsils removed get cancer of the upper respiratory tract, digestive tract and lungs of 3-8 times more often than the others. Depressions in the tonsils (crypts) was a kind of laboratory where recognized antigenic composition that enters from the outside (food, air, microorganisms), and then formed proteins.
Scientists have isolated from the tonsils of several protein compounds with active immunomodulatory properties. By studying their effect on cancer cells of the larynx and the human blood found out that they are able to kill on average, every fifth such cell. When these compounds were administered to animals, their survival rate in tumors was significantly increased.
It is important to refrain from surgery in the smallest and because almonds prevent food allergies. Statistics show that 70 percent of children with dysbiosis and food allergies do not have tonsils.
Scientists came to the conclusion that the amygdala, for example, belong to the Central bodies that control local mucosal immunity. In addition to immunity, they are equal in value to such luminaries as thymus and bone marrow. Now doctors believe that until the age of 8 almond, you should not delete, and in a later age – is highly undesirable.
The fact that the mucous membranes open in the folds of the tonsils kind of insidious traps for antigens and at the same time here to develop a special kind of In-lifotsitov responsible for the safety of the respiratory tract and upper parts of the digestive tract. Their development starts from 18-week fetus, it is particularly intense at the age of 3 and 8 years later the intensity of the production of b-lymphocytes decreases, but never stops completely.
In addition, inflammation of the tonsils is a kind of natural inoculation, allowing the body for many years to get immunity to caused inflammation to the antigen, such as strep or a particular strain of influenza virus. Accordingly, the previously removed tonsils, the more exposed it turns out our body before infections of the mucous membranes, pharynx and esophagus. Interestingly, removing the tonsils in the middle ages made simple: the doctor has scratched their nails from the throat of the patient.
A similar function bear and adenoids. Together with the Palatine, lingual and laryngeal tonsils adenoids form the so-called lymphoid ring of Pirogov, a closed line of defense against infection. Pull one link of the chain and the whole defense will crumble to dust.
And, of course, do not forget about the Appendix. In the submucosal layer of the walls of the Appendix discovered a large number of lymph follicles, protecting the intestines as infectious and oncological diseases. For the abundance of lymphoid tissue the Appendix is often called "intestinal tonsil". That's a comparison that is not lame: if the tonsils in the throat are a barrier to infection, rushing into the respiratory tract, the Appendix is lagging the germs that are trying to multiply the contents of the intestine.
Scientists from the medical center of Duke University (USA) that the Appendix has an important function – serves as a depot of beneficial bacteria living in the intestine, helping the formation of immunity.
Beneficial bacteria that lives in our intestines, not only help digestion, but also support the immune system. They synthesize antibodies – immunoglobulins and mucin, which inhibit the growth of harmful microbes. But sometimes the good bacteria can not cope with the infection, occurring diarrhea. It is a protective response to infection in which bacteria are removed from the intestinal tract. However, are also useful. But some of them certainly persists in the Appendix. The entrance is very narrow – no more than 1-2 mm, so to get there malicious microbes is difficult. And when diarrhea ends, useful microbes re-colonize the entire intestine.
As you know, lymphoid tissue takes an active part in all the defense reactions. Her Islands-units are scattered throughout the body and control certain parts. If after abrasion, the wound gets a virus, a pathogenic microorganism, in short, an exogenous antigen, then the first will come in a protective response closest to the penetration of "subversive" lymph node. When antigenic diversion massive and cannot be easily suppressed by local forces, declared a General mobilization and protection involves the whole immune system.
There is in the body a channel through which the inflow of foreign substances is regularly, is the digestive tract. However, the antigens present in the composition of the food, before getting into the blood are destroyed before universal proteins that do not carry the imprint of the alien genetic information. And yet along with panthenyl molecules can slip through here and antigenic. Here in this case, in the intestines and given to the lymphoid garrisons: the so-called Peyer's patches in the small intestine and the follicles in the Appendix.
But it would be wrong to think that the Appendix participates in protective reactions of only local importance. Thanks to the powerful of the lymphoid apparatus of the Appendix becomes a permanent and active participant of all processes in the body, accompanied by any pronounced immune response. For example, clinical observations have shown that people with removed appendixes is better engraftment of transplanted organs!
So, today proved two main functions of the Appendix: first, the Appendix is an important organ of the immune system, and secondly serves as a breeding ground for E. coli. This wand is an essential component of the microflora of the body. It prevents normal absorption of certain fatty acids, carbohydrates, amino acids, nucleic acids, synthesize vitamin K and b vitamins, it is involved in the regulation of water-salt metabolism, secretes peptidoglycan, stimulating our immune system and also performs some functions.
If tonsils are removed (or missed an infection), then, most likely, just maybe more belly or will develop the disease, a pathogen which has penetrated into the body. If the Appendix is missing? Then the agent will go further-in the inguinal nodes. The patient they are likely to become inflamed, so may lead to malfunction of the pelvic organs (i.e. the urinary tract), and this, in turn, may be followed in the best case – inflammation of the urinary bladder or urinary ducts, and in the worst – infertility.
Therefore, it is necessary to retain the body's immune system, and the best prevention of inflammation of the Appendix is correct, a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle, the rejection of synthetic drugs and vaccines and so on..
It is important to remember that God created man in the best way, and only ignorance leads to the fact that some bodies were declared doctors of "extra".
