Before Rose Marie Bentley died, she decided to donate her body to the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland. Then, some months after Bentley’s passing, a group of medical students at the institution went on to examine her cadaver in an effort to see what they could learn from the elderly woman. After the group opened up Bentley’s body, however, they weren’t able to believe their eyes. You see, there was something strange about the organs in front of them – and it was enough to shock even seasoned medical professionals.
