Medical students use real diseased organs to show effects of unhealthy lifestyles to teens.

University of Miami medical students recently brought human body parts to a high school for a lesson the students won't soon forget.

The high school students were able to get a feel for what it's like to be a medical student.

They could also see the damage a fatty diet can have on your heart and what tobacco can do to your lungs.

The University of Miami's Community Outreach And Teaching Services, or COATS program, has gone to several schools in the past couple of years to provided eye-opening lessons they usually don't get in a regular science class.

The hands-on learning experience might also inspire some to become future doctors.
