Would You Donate Your Body to Science .... Exhibits? Abra cadaver: Now sure I could stomach the much ballyhooed exhibit coming to the Franklin Institute. "Body Worlds," already seen by 17 million people worldwide, opens Friday, with more than 200 organs and 25 entire bodies preserved in plastic. "So that's what happened to Grandma!" is one of the remarks heard in L.A. "Total mind blow!" said a musician/actor. Read story. What do you think? Too grisly or unholy? Or a great way to learn about anatomy? Are you going to go? According to the company that pioneered the preservation process, "over 6,000 people have expressed their intention to donate their bodies" for future exhibits. Gee, there's a thought, ya think?
