After having traveled in over 30 countries and having been admired by over 50 million visitors, the exhibition “Our Body: The Internal Universe” has arrived to Iulius Mall in Cluj, where it may be visited until October 3 inclusively. Thus, the dwellers and tourists of Cluj have the chance to discover, in a unique educational manner, the fascinating internal universe of the human body and the way it works, by viewing over 200 exhibits – real human bodies.
By a process of polymeric impregnation (treatment with liquid silicon rubber) the tissues are preserved at microscope level, allowing visitors to see directly how amazingly the human body works, and the way illnesses and unhealthy habits affect bodily functions.
“With a powerful accent on prevention, health and education, the exhibition “Our Body: Internal Universe” is aimed to increase the interest of the audience for knowing their own bodies and to convince visitors of the importance of daily choices. By presenting in comparison healthy tissues, organs and cells, and their versions affected by various diseases, the exhibition provides its visitors the chance to view and better understand frequently encountered medical conditions (kidney cancer, brain stroke, lung cancer and so on)”, organizers declared. They intend to involve local schools, teachers and medical units in their attempt to promote the best practices required for a healthy life, but also to stir young people’s interest in medical professions.
