    'Body Worlds' exhibit is for real

    'Body Worlds' exhibit is for real

    Headed for Franklin Institute.

    By Peter Dobrin
    Inquirer Culture Writer

    In its latest play for blockbuster-size audiences, the Franklin Institute is importing "Body Worlds," a traveling exhibition that includes 200 human-body parts and 25 human bodies.

    Real body parts. Real human cadavers.

    I got to see this when it was in Los Angeles. Absolutely a facinating experience. Not to be missed.

    While technically I don't object, personally I think I will pass. The only reason they use real bodies is for the sensationalism. They could have had the same exibit, only using plastic models and exhibits.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Having seen and experienced the exhibit, this is where I know you are wrong. No, they could not. Besides the medical research/teaching ability of these real bodies could never be achieved by plastic models. If plastic models could teach as well as these real life bodies, then, med students would never have to study/disect cadavers.

    jmho, of course.
