Most animals, including humans, are essentially food-processing tubes.

Beginning with the tongue, salivary glands, pharynx, and epiglottis, von Hagens uncovers and removes the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small and large intestines, and anus, as well as the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. He explores the bile ducts of the liver, illustrates the ways that urine and feces are stored and released, and -- in an anatomical context -- explains burps, heartburn, nausea, ulcers, and other rarely discussed facts of life.

"Cancer is a vicious killer, but it leaves behind substantial clues that doctors can study. In this program, anatomist Gunther von Hagens and pathologist John Lee expose cancer for what it is--an attacker that can quickly and stealthily infiltrate the human body. Lee and von Hagens dissect the cadaver of a woman who, tragically, lost a battle with bowel cancer; they reveal the site of the primary tumor in the sigmoid colon, as well as the areas to which cancer had metastasized: the lungs and abdominal wall. To further illustrate tumor-spreading, the frozen body of a woman who succumbed to breast cancer is encased in polyurethane foam and sawed into slices"--Www.films.com
