Over the past 200,000 years, people have made great strides forward in evolutionary terms, and many tiny changes have taken place in our body. All of us living today are the product of adaptation, evolution and natural selection.

Even if our ancestors were outwardly similar to us, we have many physical and anatomical features with them. This is confirmed by rudimentary structures scattered throughout our body.

Rudimentary structures are parts of the body that have lost most or all of their functions, but despite this, they have been preserved in the process of evolution. In fact, mother nature considers certain things no longer necessary for the survival of the species in the future. Instead of eliminating, the unnecessary part slowly fades out and becomes useless, but it remains unchanged.

Why do some parts and functions of the body remain, while others are completely eliminated - the mystery of nature.Most of them do not harm us, and those that affect (for example, wisdom teeth or appendix) can be easily and safely removed.

If you see a raised ligament in the middle of the wrist, then you have a rudimentary muscle in the forearm, and it is called the long palm muscle. If you see a thick edge - this is a tendon that connects to the wrist. If the muscle is missing on both hands, or is missing on one hand, then you enter 10-15% of the population.

Do not worry if you do not have this muscle, because it is, in fact, useless! Studies have shown that the long palm muscle has no effect on the strength of the human hand.
