Dr.death is selling his corpses online!
« on: February 07, 2008, 01:11:44 AM »

A controversial German doctor who invented a technique for preserving corpses plans to sell his stomach-churning creations online.

Gunther von Hagens, who wears a trademark black fedora even while performing TV dissections, will sell a whole “plastinated” body for £45,000.

Or, if owning a dead human has always been your dream but you can't quite spare the same amount of cash that would buy a top-of-the-range Mercedes, a slice of stomach costs just £200.

Until now, he has only sold cross-sections, where plastinated organs are clearly visible, to universities as teaching materials.

But now private individuals will be able to buy slices of corpses too.

Dr Von Hagens' assistant Nadine Diwersi told German newspaper Das Bild: "We are able to quickly produce large quantities with high quality and for a good price."

A cross-section down the length of the body will cost £9,000, while a cross-section across the body will be priced at £200, or “£1,200 for a 16-slice set.

This is really gross! where did he get 4500 dead people from? and i dont really think it is either fair or ethical to sell dead bodies anyway. As a medical student you should respect the bodies and they should only be used for studies to progress medicine. These current "cadavers" were once living and respectable human beings like you and me. Which one of us would today willingly donate their body to this freak plastinerium?

This guy is the father of plastination idea and he has been collecting this dead bodies since 1977.
But I am wondering who will pay 90,000$ for a dead body.....
