BODY WORLDS Vital - Extended until 30 November at Life Science Centre, UK!

Life Science Centre is delighted to announce that BODY WORLDS Vital, the world famous exhibition of plastinated bodies has been extended at the Centre until 30 November! BODY WORLDS Vital is an awe-inspiring journey through the human body, celebrating its complexity, beauty and potential. The exhibition brings together a collection of real human bodies, specimens, organs and body slices which have been willed by donors and preserved through Plastination, a ground-breaking method for specimen preservation invented by Dr. Gunther von Hagens. This special collection of specimens is designed to show visitors the basics of human health and wellness. This includes whole-body plastinates, a large arrangement of individual organs, organ and arterial configurations, and translucent slices that give a complete picture of how the human body works. Vital tells the fascinating story of how best to fight life-threatening diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart ailments, through healthy choices and lifestyle changes.

This exhibition runs from May 17 until November 30 2014. Please see www.life.org.uk for more details.
