    '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.

    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.

    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.
