Vegas Dead BODIES Help Dispel Cancer Myths

As the Day of the Dead approaches, it may be the perfect time to view BODIES…The Exhibition, the fascinating and slightly creepy exhibit that lets you wander among 13 real human bodies that have been meticulously dissected and preserved and then modeled into various forms.  BODIES facial blood vessels The bodies let you see the skeletal, muscular, respiratory and circulatory systems of humans in action – well, as if they were in action. The exhibit includes bodies that were fit while alive along with those that are damaged by smoking, over eating and lack of exercise, perhaps the most unique way to motivate yourself to change your lifestyle. It is recommended that children 12 and under are accompanied by a teacher or parent as an adult guide.
