Even in 2015, the human body holds onto mysteries. Why do we have a useless tube where the small and large intestines meet, the only function of which seems to be to get infected and try to kill us? Why do we dream when we sleep? Why do we yawn, for that matter? Why do we need fingerprints that are unique to us?
Women have one particular mystery to their bodies, and unfortunately it has probably caused them far more problems than it’s worth. The worst part isn’t that it’s a mystery – it’s that it has been tragically misunderstood and ascribed many properties that it simply isn’t responsible for. This troublesome tissue needs some serious demystification.
