Is it possible to have too many organs.
Posted 11/8/15 , edited 11/8/15
A strange question I just thought of. If you had too many hearts, would your blood pressure be to high or something? If you had too many kidneys would your blood be too clean? I need an answer for this.

P.S. I'm not high.

I knew a girl who had 3 and 1/2 kidneys for some odd reason she didn't have any complications.

I disagree with that last statement

I've got two faces and people don't like it much.

What about trying to figure out which kidney to sell? That's quite a tough decision.

I would think that if your body evolved to possess multiple of the same organ, that you would have likewise evolved to use them efficiently together. Otherwise the species would have died off.

If you're asking if you suddenly woke up with two of each of one or more organs, then it would be a problem. This is mainly due to strain on your circulatory system in maintaining blood flow to all the extra organs. You might get anemic from not being able to supply enough blood to all of them. You might get heart strain from your body trying to keep up. Or you might get, essentially, frostbite in any of the organs, as your body prioritizes some over others and lets the rest die.

For a moment, I thought it was about these organs.

Your body would need to be able to accommodate them. Tightly packing them into spaces they don't belong sounds like a recipe for death.

Yeah, sure it could. If you had more organs than you needed, they would consume a lot of energy and do nothing useful, like a cancer. Of course it's hypothetical, but having an extra heart or something won't make you too healthy, it'd be far more likely to be benign or just suck you dry.

I do know that the more fat you have just works your heart that much harder. So lose weight, fatty. That's goes for YOU the fat person reading this. God, you're so fat you have your own zip code.

No, you'd just be a Time Lord.
