Getting the most out of our bodies
bodyzone
The body is changing...but not necessarily for the better
The Body Zone will feature what is claimed to be the world's biggest physical representation of the human form.

The exhibition will through human biology and medical science explore the dramatic impact of lifestyle choices on the way our bodies appear and perform.

It will look at illness, physical fitness, reproduction and cosmetic alterations.

Changing bodies

The human body is the most complex object in the world which up until recently has undergone no significant evolutionary change since Homo Erectus became Homo Sapiens up to 150, 000 years ago.

Now, scientists believe that diet, exercise and technological developments over the past 100 years have helped to transform our bodies and lives.

Today we can run faster and jump higher. We are stronger, taller and live longer. But we are also balder and more prone to cancer and allergic conditions.

The exhibition will show how we can affect our own future and the world around us.
