What is a ‘bariatrically assisted death’?
When someone has died in a medical or nursing home, the decision is made by the nursing staff or the family.
The body will be sent to a funeral home, usually in the United Kingdom, where it is cremated.
There is no regulation for the type of body sent to the funeral home.
A ‘barcode’ is a code that can be used to determine where a body has been sent.
What is the difference between bariatrics and cadaverology?
Cadaver therapy is the practice of collecting and storing bodies and tissue samples from dead people.
The body is not taken to the mortuary where it may be dissected, but rather is taken to a laboratory where it can be studied for signs of illness.
It is the ultimate goal of the practice to identify disease and death from a human body, but is often used to conduct ‘interview sessions’ in which patients are given information about their condition.
When a doctor performs surgery on a corpse, the body will often be stored at a medical facility where a surgeon will make an incision through the body, often in the abdomen or groin.
In some cases, this procedure will involve removal of a rib or spine.
Dr Roberta Soper-Mansfield, from University College London, told the BBC: ‘A person can die of a heart attack or stroke without being buried alive.
‘The more often we see the practice in the UK, the more we are discovering that the NHS is failing patients.’
Why do some people say they want to be cremated?
Many people say that they want the bodies sent to them.
But some people are not willing to wait for it to happen, and they feel that it is too late to take the body to the crematorium.
For example, a woman from Yorkshire, who was found with a large tumour, said: ‘I just don’t feel like going to the hospital.
I don’t want to go to a doctor or an ambulance to say ‘Please help me’.’
My mum told me if I had a heart condition I would have a funeral in six weeks.
Cremation is not for everyone.
Some people say cremation is a luxury, because they do not have the money to pay for it.
Why is the cremation of body parts a major medical event in the US?
The US is one of the largest crematoria in the world, and is one the few countries that allow it.
The US has the largest number of cremations in the Western world, with more than 17 million cremations per year.
During the 1970s, when crematoriums were very common in the USA, there were only about 10 crematorium deaths each year.
By 2010, that number had increased to more than 80 per day, with an estimated 300,000 deaths per year in the country.
Why does cremation in the West seem so dangerous?
According to the Royal College of Physicians, cremation causes a number of serious health risks to the patient.
According the UK’s National Health Service, the risk of COVID-19 is about 20 times higher than in other developed countries.
More than half of the patients who died in crematorias in the NHS were aged over 65, according to the NHS’s coronavirus mortality statistics.
People who are already suffering from COVID could be more vulnerable to the virus.
Another factor that may make the crematorium more risky is the lack of access to crematorium waste, which is often left in the open, and can contain potentially infectious bacteria and other contaminants.
Are there any restrictions on crematories?
Yes, there are restrictions in place.
The crematory regulations were changed in 2003, when there were concerns that cadavers could pose a danger to the public.
The regulations now only allow crematory bodies to be sent out if it is safe for the patient to do so.
However, the rules do not apply to funeral homes and other institutions.
Should people who wish to be buried alive be creminated?
There are some countries that do not allow cremation.
If cremation would be allowed, it could lead to increased rates of COVI and other infections in the community.
But some people, such as former Prime Minister Tony Blair, say that cremation does not offer the best option for patients who have died.
Blair said: ‘Crematory has to be a way of dealing with grief.’
Do people who die at the end of life need cremation?
Some patients who die of COVD do not want to have their remains cremated and so are given the option of being buried with their own ashes
