This scientist thought these were the parts of the human body that would soon disappear



In the first chapter of The Descent of Man, the renowned scientist Charles Darwin had identified some parts of the body as unnecessary.

Even the Darwin catalog included some parts of the body, which, according to him, will disappear in the future.

Darwin has described his toes, ribs, and mature teeth as three of the unnecessary body parts.

Toes

Scientists have found that more people walk and balance walking with their middle leg, but are gradually shifted by concentrating more on the thumbs.

However, studies show that the balancing center is still moving in, meaning that people no longer rely on the toes of the ankle to balance.

Chimpanzees and gorillas, have a pair of ribs more. Most people have 12, but 8% of adults have one more pair.

These too are described as unnecessary, and may disappear in the future. 

In the early days, people had to chew plants in order to get enough calories to survive, but today only 5% of the population have healthy, ineffective teeth.

Teeth of maturity are considered as part of the body that will disappear, which means less dental bills.
