What is Your Best Organ?

Maybe I should say, what is your best functioning organ? Odd question, and of course I don't mean musical organs, nor do I want any off color answers (you know who you are, lol). I'm often told I'm too young to have so many health problems, but I take great pride in that I have two perfect kidneys. Yes, my kidneys are wonderful. My heart is pretty good, but since I have a heart murmur, however insignificant the issue, I still claim to be most proud of my kidneys. So what about you guys? Don't forget, if you can't think of anything, your skin is an organ after all. : )

Not to be boastful Ambie, but I am really healthy, so I don't know what would be my best organ. In fact, I go for a check up, I wonder what they will say that may need attention, and I get a clean bill of health every time. So I am thankful to have a healthy body and able to continue to do what I do at my age.

Well, I would not say no ailments..If you were to ask what my worse organ was, that would be my eyes. If I don't have my glasses or contacts, I am almost helpless..lol

Corneas are organs, aren't they? I can sit right in front of the TV and have no idea what anything looks like without contacts or glasses.

My liver must be my best functioning organ. For all the work I've put it through, It hasn't had any bad reactions or given me any pain.

Okay. I love the thought evoking topics. My best organ, without reservation, is my nose. Technically, more a body part than an organ, but my sniffer has never missed a beat. I love to take in beautiful or delicious smells, get lost in aromas very easily. My nose works miraculously and remembers better than my mind. The downside of this is that I am equally sensitive to foul odours or especially powerful smells. I burn A LOT of incense...

All my organs work just fine, oh, except for my brain, they said that they would like to change a few things and see if they could make me a little less me. Can't forget the heart, they are still looking for it! lol. My liver is 1/3 bigger than it should be. Grew faster than the rest of me! lol. Works just fine, and I would be an ideal candidate for a live liver transplant on account that my body wouldn't miss the bit they took.

Yes, but a liver can grow back. What if you donated some and it grew back even bigger? : ) By the way, I like your brain. Ho hum brains bore me.

My brain is my best organ if it counts as an organ. It helps me plan to conquer my body's limitations, which there are many of due to my cerbral palsy. It allows me to work and earn money, as well as to be creative in the arts and active in politics.

It doesn't sound like your brain is amazing, it sounds like YOU are amazing.

HEHE My son just did his science project on the organ SKIN. Considering mine was referred to as blotchy, big pores, and sagging skin, I will not say it is my best organ. LOL 17 years of smoking rules out my lungs and heart. Many years of heavy drinking I don't think I would say kidneys and liver. I am very happy to say that I am now clean living. So I think I would have to say my ovaries are my best organ. I had no problem getting pregnant with my three children. LOL

I think the most important organ is your skin. It heals, protects, and keeps your insides safe. You need your skin for everything. Also, your skin can tell you if you are sick also. If you get too hot it turns red, and also sweats. If your liver is not functioning, your skin turns yellow. Also it will dry out for other conditions or if you are not getting enough water.

Very good point. Our skin is the indicator for everything else.
