The travelling global exhibition BODY WORLDS Vital is a sight to behold, and in April this year, when the exhibition opens in Auckland, Kiwis will be given an eye-opening look at human anatomy, to see up close how our lifestyles truly affect our bodies. One hundred and fifty donated human specimens have gone through a meticulous 12-month process of ‘plastination’, and the resultant specimens demonstrate how life decisions impact anatomical health.
