Review of Where Do Cadavers Come From?

Chances are, you've never wondered what happens to bodies donated to science, let alone the lengthy preparation they - the cadavers - endure to make physicians out of students. Sure their souls have long parted from them and left them behind, but these cadavers contribute to science for years and years on.

The location described in this piece is only a few blocks away from where I live. There are moments in the piece that are creep-inducing - a doctor mentions students sometimes feel hungry after dissection after the producer observed the area resembled a cafeteria. Yes, it's not a comfortable place to be in but it's the truth.

Why should you listen to a piece that would make you uncomfortable? Because you should know how some people give a whole lot more, even after death, for your body than you care to for your own.
