Scientists finally found the function of the human appendix?

Appendix has always been thought to be the only organ in human body that has zero function. However, after a very long time, a group of scientists from Duke University Medical Centre finally discovered what they said to be the true function of the organ.

Turns out that the appendix acts as a bank for a good bacteria that is useful to reboot the gut during cholera or other digestive infections. Scientists said, during cholera infection, bacteria that is essential for digestion will be destroyed, this is where the appendix will deploy the good bacteria that is stored to replace the dead bacteria.

Although this idea has been believed for a few years now, scientists at that time just didn't have enough research and evidence to support it until recently.
