Ok, I'm doing a double degree of Exercise Science and Sport Management at Uni and this morning I had one of my classes at the morgue. I've got one thing to say... PLEASE DO NOT SMOKE! It's one thing to read about the dangers of smoking or hear about it in the media or from your doctor but to actually pick up a human lung and watch the tar drip out of it is entirely another. I normally have a pretty strong stomach, but this was absolutely disgusting. The lung was almost black, shrivelled to half of it's normal size and we were told that respiratory function had been cut by 75% due to smoking. The lab session was otherwise very interesting however, and we were able to view all of the bodily systems, as well as the preserving process. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to handle watching my own hand cutting into another human's flesh, but once I got past the smell of the formaldehyde, I just became engrossed in the work and it isn't so bad. If you do smoke and want to give up, ask your doctor for a picture of the lung after it has filtered thousands of chemicals from each cigarette for even a couple of years. You will quit on the spot!
