Scientists discover new human organ hiding in plain sight

Talk about weird and unusual, this is mind blowing stuff! Ever heard of the "interstitium"? The interstitial space is the primary source of lymph and is a major fluid compartment in the body. That's what researchers are referring to when they talk about a new human organ that's been pretty much hiding in plain sight it's in that bit of the body. It seems that the body's connective tissue is fluid-filled, a feature that hadn't been noticed before, largely because doctors and researchers typically cut through that layer when studying the cells of a human body; basically, they treat samples with chemicals, then cut them into thin slices, and dye them to highlight key features.
