I still have all 4 of my Wisdom Teeth and they are fine...although granted, when they came in, the upper Wisdom Teeth had to push my upper teeth
together to make room, so I have a very un-American smile...but I guess that in itself is a benefit from a Survivalist standpoint, considering how
much of a liability it is these days to look American.
The pain of Wisdom Teeth coming in is intense and prolonged. However, like the pangs of Child Birth, it forever increases your Pain Threshold. That
can be a useful thing as well.
As far as removal of other organs...
When my daughter was born I decided to undo the long-standing neglect to my health and ran the full gamut of tests with my Doctor and Dentist and
Specialists since I finally had incentive to take care of myself to ensure I'd be around for all her life. One of the things I asked about was the
preemptive removal of the Appendix and the Tonsils. My Doctor stated that although it was a common procedure in previous decades, most Physicians are
reluctant to remove the Tonsils even if infected. My Doctor stated that Acute Appendicitis is so easily avoidable until one's elder years simply be
increasing one's daily intake of fiber that it is a ridiculous notion to preemptively remove it. Besides, he mentioned that Medicine is discovering
that the Appendix may not be a vestigial organ after all and most likely serves a very important role in maintaining bacteria levels in the
Just something to consider.
