Now your body has an extra organ.
Researchers have found something mysterious inside your guts – a brand-new human organ, which has never been classified before!
We think you’re going to grow to love it, too.
The ‘mesentery’ is part of our digestive systems – but was previously thought to be lots of small, fragmented structures.

But recent research has shown that it’s actually one big, brand new organ.
J Calvin Coffey of University Hospital Limerick in Ireland says, “We are now saying we have an organ in the body which hasn’t been acknowledged as such to date.”
“The anatomic description that had been laid down over 100 years of anatomy was incorrect. This organ is far from fragmented and complex. It is simply one continuous structure.”
Medical textbooks have been updated to describe the mesentery as an organ – a double-fold of the peritoneum – the lining of our abdominal cavities – which holds our intestines in place.
Coffey says, ‘When we approach it like every other organ…we can categorize abdominal disease in terms of this organ.
“Now we have established anatomy and the structure. The next step is the function. If you understand the function you can identify abnormal function, and then you have disease. Put them all together and you have the field of mesenteric science…the basis for a whole new area of science.”
“This is relevant universally as it affects all of us.”
It just goes to show that no matter how advanced science becomes, there’s always more to learn and discover, even within our own bodies.
