Zac Efron is recovering after undergoing emercy surery to remove his appendix on Tuesday. The young star of "High School Musical" was treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
On Monday Disney announced that Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman would be starring in the next sequel of the popular movie, "High School Musical 3: Senior Year." Filming will start in the spring.
The appendix often has to be surgically removed in young adults. The organ is not needed in the human being anymore but it is thought to have been used by early man.
Joseph McCabe in his book The Story of Evolution McCabe argued :
The vermiform appendage—in which some recent medical writers have vainly endeavoured to find a utility—is the shrunken remainder of a large and normal intestine of a remote ancestor. This interpretation of it would stand even if it were found to have a certain use in the human body. Vestigial organs are sometimes pressed into a secondary use when their original function has been lost.
The surgery has become a very simple procedure done in most cases as an emergency procedure.
