The thymus gland hosts infection fighting T-cells while they grow up, so it’s a very important part of the immune system. Interesting factoid: lamb thymuses are widely eaten as sweetbreads — eeech. This cute little 1.25 inch or 3.2cm pin comes packed on a card.
About I Heart Guts Plush Organs, T-shirts and Lapel Pins:
