Bits and Pieces

You may remember that a couple of months ago I posted about a visit to Edinburgh's Anatomy Museum, where among the exhibits were the skeletons of various bad lads, including the grave-robbers Burke and Hare) who had been sentenced to be dissected after execution. As Burke and Hare were well aware, in Victorian times there was a great shortage of cadavers for use in medical training - and there still is, hence this campaign.

And here's a post from the new blog by Vic (remember Vic?) on the topics of organ donation and cadaver donation. Interesting reading.

Now go and register as an organ donor, or give your body to science (all the while remembering that unless you have charity it shall profit you nothing).
