Overview

Inside this sealed plastic specimen jar (11 cm x 19 cm), a lifelike BIOLIKE 2™ model of a cirrhotic liver floats beside a model of a pickled cucumber. The cirrhotic liver and the pickled cucumber share the same hobnail, greenish surface, making the serious point that alcohol abuse can lead to cirrhosis, a leading cause of death. Perfect for alcohol abuse prevention programmes.

Details

The BIOLIKE 2™ liver model floating ominously in this specimen jar beside a model of a pickled cucumber shows the long-term effects of cirrhosis—scar tissue and nodules cover its surface like giant scales. The message is simple: With the liver unable to function normally, death is imminent. Great for raising awareness of one of the many dangerous consequences of alcohol abuse. 11 cm x 19 cm.
