    I think the point should be made that "to science" rarely means that your body is going to be tested or researched upon.

    The majority of cadavers are sent to medical schools to train medical students in surgery and anatomy.

    l would like to hear their ideas about it.
    I don't know. I never thought about it, but I guess if someone really needed it....

    I told my son that I wanted to be creamated and he reacted with shock and proceeded to tell his whole baseball team how weird I was for wanting to be burned.

    ^^ I said this above, but most donated cadavers go to universities for medical students to practice surgery and learn anatomy. Perhaps it comes as a surprise, but they don't let doctors perform surgeries without giving them the opportunity to practice. So if grandma benefited from a hip surgery during her lifetime, perhaps she believes that donating her body may help another 2,000 people who will be the patients of those doctors.

    You could always let science borrow your body briefly while you're still in it.

    Re: what about a cadaver ?

    As per my response in the other thread...NO! I can't imagine my body being used like a frog dissection in some biology class (med school level).

    Dust to dust is my motto...and all parts together in proper order at the time if you please. Thanks.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
