You won't find them in your i gift atlas, or in any other j atlas of the earth's lands and j seas. These so called islands were named for Paul Langcr- bans who found them, of all i places, concealed inside the human body. This was way back in 186B, when medical i researchers were grasping [he i role of the glands in the human anatomy. They knew the the pancreas secretes digestive juices. This pinkish yellow "land is six or more inches and about IK inches thick. It .squat1! comfortably behind Ihe stomach and contributes ils digestive juices through a duct into Ihe duodenum. Langcrhans discovered that Ihe pancreas is populated wilh sir.all bodies that produce a special endocrine substance ol their own. There may be lo million of tlicsc islcls or islands embedded inside Uic av- erage human pancreas. They manufacture insulin, Die glan- dular secretion that the cells need lo USB glucose fuel. When the islands of Langcrhan fail lo contribute enough insulin, un- used sugar gets into the blood and the patient suffers from dinbclcs.
