Body Worlds 2 – last month

Don’t miss Dr. Gunther Von Hagens’ ‘Body Worlds 2: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human Bodies’ which is showing at the Ontario Science Centre from now until Feb 26th.

The bodies are plastinated, which is defined as “a unique process invented by Dr. Gunther von Hagens to preserve specimens for medical education. The process replaces water in the body’s tissues with fluid plastics that harden after vacuum-forced impregnation. Hardening the plastic in the specimens allows the bodies to be fixed into life-like poses, which illustrate how our bodies respond, internally, to movements in everyday and athletic activities.”

The purpose of this exhibition is “to educate the public about the inner workings of the human body and show the effects of poor health, good health and lifestyle choices. It is also presented in the hopes that it will stimulate curiosity about the science of anatomy.”

I am planning on attending sometime in the next 2 weeks.
