PHOENIX – One of the many dramatic displays in Gunther von Hagens’ Body Worlds and The Brain features blackened smokers’ lungs compared to healthy lungs.

The striking comparison of these lung specimens moves visitors to quit smoking, stay quitters, and pledge to never smoke for the rest of their lives.

On April 11, guests pledging to quit smoking receive free admission to the exhibit from 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

FOX 10’s Diane Ryan has the details.
