I have often wondered why people went through so much time and money disposing of dead bodies Once the person dies I seriously doubt that they care what happens to their body In the past bodies have been put to rest many different ways Cultures have a large effect on this Some cultures would burn the body or hang them up high so the spirits could be released Nevertheless I have only found three legal ways to dispose of a dead body in the United States today Burial is the traditional way to go The majority of our population is put six feet under in an expensive casket just so they can rot Burying someone almost seems rude because it allows the worms bacteria and other decomposers to eat away at the body Besides that cemeteries are taking up a large amount of land that could be used for something useful Also when having an open casket funeral I believe that it brings more pain to the family They then have to face the reality while staring at the gross cadaver Sometimes families even get in large arguments over what the person is going to wear when buried I believe that we could all save stress time and money by finding better way to dispose of our bodies I feel that there are better options Cremation has many advantages but is rarely used unless the person is badly hurt or has no family Some people think that cremation is morbid and sick but I believe that it makes good sense By cremating the body large land plots are not wasted and the body can not be eaten by insects The family does not have to spend their life savings trying to pick out the fanciest casket for the deceased to rot in either The act of sprinkling ones ashes upon a sacred place is just as sincere as burying their body This method
