There are many organs that the human body has that is essential for survival, which five do you believe are the most necessary and why?
The five I believe are the most important are the heart, brain, the lungs, the kidneys, and the liver. The heart pumps our blood throughout our body. Our brain receives and sends signals to the rest of our body. The lungs allow us to remove oxygen from the air in order to send it to our blood, which is important for our cells. The kidneys remove extra waste from our blood. Finally, our liver is in charge of detoxifying harmful chemicals from our blood and also secrete bile.
