HUMAN BODIES EXPOSITION

The wonders of our body

exposicao_corpo_humano_human_bodies_maravilhas_do___00367f7333Until May 30 the Plaza Shopping in Niteroi is offering the exhibition Human Bodies – Wonders of the Body, which has toured several countries.

Visitors will see nine real bodies and over a hundred types of human organs treated by the world-famous technique of plastination, which promotes conservation thereto with permanent texture and color.

The plastination is a method created by the  German doctor Gunther Von Hagens, held since 1970, in which the specimen is dissected and immersed in acetone to extract all body fluids. It is then placed in a silicone polymer bath and goes to a vacuum chamber, which replaces the acetone by the polymer to the deepest cellular level. After hardening, the substance leaves the body in a state of permanent preservation, with infinite duration.20120927122030923145u

The plastination process of a whole body  take more than a year, while a small organ takes a week. Only in 2007 the results of this technique became available to the public.

The exhibition is a three-dimensional dive into our bodies – skin and bones, from head to toe – all in order to help people make more informed decisions about health care and lifestyle.The goal is to help you understand the disease, the damage and injury caused to organs by health problems like obesity, arthritis, breast cancer and smoking in a different way, practical and objective.
