A slice of life

Ever wonder what it would look like if a psychotic giant had a slicer and chopped up a human from head to toe in less than 15 seconds?

Me neither.

But someone out there has thought about it (a medical researcher, of course), and put together this video:

From KnowMore:

This video, which was recently shared by I F—ing Love ScienceĀ on Facebook, shows a snapshot of the human body from top to bottom in just 14 seconds. The images come from The Visible Human project, in which a cadaver was frozen, and then cut into 1,800 plus slices for imaging. The methodology is a little gruesome, but the result is the most complete top-to-bottom view of a human body that scientists and the public have seen.
