Editorial Reviews

EXTREME BODIES reveals the extraordinary stories of the most unique people on the planet. From Americas tallest man to a primordial dwarf whose body remains a mystery to medical science, these four episodes unlock the biological secrets of amazing human oddities – including a 700-pound athlete and conjoined twins who share a brain!

Episodes: Conjoined Twins: Featuring the Schappell twins, who have lived their lives joined at the head, and the Hogan twins, who share a brain, this show explores the amazing structures of people who are literally one in a billion!

Super Obese: With two-thirds of the U.S. population overweight or obese, are we pushing our bodies to their natural limit? See how the world’s heaviest athlete functions at more than 700 pounds!

Giants: Standing 7’ 8”, George Bell is America’s tallest man. Find out what caused him to grow to this towering height, as we enter the bodies and lives of giants who often suffer from dangerous medical conditions.

Dwarfs: Shaped by genetic anomalies buried deep in their DNA, dwarf bodies are the products of incredible anatomical engineering. With cutting-edge computer graphics, Extreme Bodies uncovers the science hidden within the world’s smallest people.

This DVD has 4 forty-five minute sections. I use this to supplement my anatomy classes to give a human perspective on some anatomical extremes. I like the fact that there are several different people on each video who are "extreme" for different physiological reasons. It is current, correct, and entertaining enough to keep the attention of high school students.
