Controversial Exhibition Bears It All In The Name of Science

ATLANTA, (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The dead are teaching the living a lesson – in anatomy that is.

At least that’s the idea behind Bodies, an international anatomy exhibit that debuts in Seattle on September 30.

Curators plan to display 21 real, dead, whole body specimens that have been preserved and dissected, along with other organs and body parts.

The bodies will show the public how processes such as lung cancer and muscular activity occur in a real body.

However, there has been much controversy surrounding “Bodies.”

As event organizer Arnie Geller says, “Many people have reservations about the exhibit due to the dead bodies. So we start with a plastic skeleton display first. Then we move on to real bodies and after five minutes people get comfortable with the exhibit.”

Geller adds, “We want people to get past their fears of the dead and enjoy the exhibit and all it has to offer.”
