Keywords: dangerous, pancreas, potato, replacing
Replacing any organ with an inanimate object, particularly a vegetable, is often fatal.
Why would you do this?
Even if you can live without a pancreas, having a potato in side you would not be good.
Your pancreas makes substances that help you digest food and take up nutrients, like insulin and digestive enzymes. A potato also has enzymes, like catalase which breaks down hydrogen peroxide (bleach) but that’s not very useful for digestion.
The only place I would replace a pancreas with a potato would be in my stew.
Living without a pancreas wouldn’t be a lot of fun! Having a spud in it’s place couldn’t make things much better…
Probably not a good idea and very dangerous. You need your pancreas to help you digest food and take up nutrients. Replacing it with an inanimate object like a potato would inhibit the body’s ability to take up nutrients. Plus, your body would react to the potato and the immune system would recognise it as a foreign object and try to kill it.
it works fine for me
