BODY WORLDS Exhibition Uses Lung Specimens to Launch Anti-Smoking Campaign at the San Diego Natural History Museum
Date:4/14/2009

ung. "Each rejected pack marked a victory by one person against nicotine addiction," said Dr. Angelina Whalley, a physician, and designer of the BODY WORLDS exhibitions. "Many visitors to the exhibition reported that they had tried everything but only stopped after seeing the smoker's lung," said Whalley.

"The American Lung Association is excited about the opportunity to help people achieve smoking-cessation goals after having been inspired by BODY WORLDS," said Culver "Cub" Parker, volunteer chair of the American Lung Association's local leadership council in San Diego. "As the Lung Association works with the Tobacco Free Communities Coalition to reduce the impact of big tobacco on youth and the general public, the 1-800-NO-BUTTS California Smokers' Helpline directly improves the lives of thousands of smokers by super-charging their decision to quit."

Independent surveys conducted at BODY WORLDS exhibitions have revealed that 68% of visitors resolved to pay more attention to their physical health after seeing the exhibition. At one venue where a follow-up survey was conducted, results showed that 10% of visitors stated that they had smoked less and consumed less alcohol since their visit to the exhibition.

Tickets to BODY WORLDS are available online at www.sdnhm.org, by phone 877.946.7797 and in person at the Museum, 1788 El Prado at the intersection of Village Place and Park Blvd. General admission to the Museum does not include BODY WORLDS.
