Most organs in the human body are extremely important. Barring a few organs, such as the appendix which basically doesn’t have any function and thus no importance in the human body, most other organs serve some very important functions. While a person can survive without a few organs, that doesn’t make them any less important as they make living normal and not diseased or impaired. But there are some organs which can be regarded as the most important organs of the human body.
The brain is easily one of the most important organs of the human body. It is the organ that dictates everything. It collects all the information, processes it and sends signals to all parts of the body to act or react in a certain way. From signals of hunger to being filled up, from feeling pain to being stressed, everything is either initiated or responded to by the brain. It is, in many ways, the master of the human body.
The heart is undoubtedly one of the most important organs of the human body. It is responsible for blood circulation throughout the body and that keeps the entire body fed with the nutrients carried by the blood, alive with the oxygen supplied by the blood and kept functional. One cannot survive without a beating heart.
The lungs are also extremely important. The pair of lungs, similar to air bags, is responsible for breathing or respiration in the human body. Without the lungs, one wouldn’t breathe or respire and that will take away the life inducing oxygen.
Liver is another vital organ which is among the most important organs of the humans. The liver detoxifies the food we eat; it conducts the synthesis of nutrients, secrets hormones and caters to the decomposition of red blood cells. Life without a liver is not possible at this stage, although research and studies are on to find alternatives.
The stomach plays a pivotal role in the entire digestive system, although there are other just as important organs in the system. The stomach is responsible for digestion of food with some significant assistance from other organs like the intestines and liver. Without the stomach, we would be hungry and may not eventually survive.
Kidneys are the cleansers in the human body. They clean the blood and all fluids in the human body. They extract all the impurities and excrete them through urination. In a sense, kidneys cleanse our body of many things that is undesirable. Also, kidneys can regulate blood pressure and the balance between acids and bases in the human body.
One doesn’t need an explanation as to why eyes are among the most important organs of the human body. While absence of eyes would not naturally lead to death but its presence can mean the difference between living and otherwise.
The intestines are responsive for digestion, for secretion of several gastric juices and other fluids which aid the digestion process and also help to extract unnecessary matter from food and all other items which we consume.
An integral part of the endocrine system, the pituitary gland regulates the hormonal activity in the body and is responsible for many functions, from managing growth to ensuring hormonal stability in the body.
