Human bodies are now being exhibited to create awareness about the anatomy for the first time. The Arizona Science Center has started their exhibition titled BODY WORLDS 3: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human Bodies. Visitors will be able to view preserved human bodies and get an invaluable insight into the effects that an unhealthy lifestyle can have on the different organs of the body. This has been made possible due to the efforts of University of Heidelberg's Dr. Von Hagens who invented the Plastination procedure of preserving human bodies in 1977.
