Department You Should Lay Off

You should lay off the Lymphatic system because it stimulates the defense mechanisms in your body, therefore, if you were to live in a perfectly clean environment and come in no contact at all with parasites, germs, animals, etc. You wouldn’t get any harmful diseases, making no use for the system as a whole.


If we took away the brain, the skull and the spinal cord would be useless. The skull protects the brain, and the spinal cord connects the brain to the rest of the body. There is a total of 100,000 miles of blood vessels just in the brain. It consists of 100 billion neurons. It uses 20% of the body’s oxygen. The fattest organ in the body (60% fat). The brain is the control center of the entire body. The brain of a full grown adult weighs about three pounds.

Conditions You Will Encounter Without The Brain

If you remove the brain the body would continue its involuntary muscular action like the heart being able to pump. Another reason why you shouldn't remove the brain is because you couldn't breathe or swallow.
