Something new in you....that is, scientists now believe they've discovered a new organ in humans. It's something that has been there all along....not exactly a new body part...but the new knowledge that it's not what medicine had thought before.
It's a network of fluid-filled spaces in connective tissues all over the body ....under the skin surface, what doctors thought was a collagen layer, is actually collagen giving the support structure for this fluid "system" that runs throughout,even lining the digestive tract, lungs, urinary systems and surrounding muscles.
The finding published just this week in the journal Scientific Reports.
What it means in terms of health, disease, curing, preventing? That's going to take more time.... unraveling the secrets of this highway in the body.
