Q. I thought embalming was required by law - Why don’t you allow embalming?
Embalming is not required in any state,. The Federal Trade Commission requires funeral service providers to inform consumers that embalming is not required .There are ecological problems with conventional body burial such as the potential for embalmed bodies to leach formaldehyde into the ground. Formaldehyde has been regarded as a known carcinogen by the World Health Organization and is on the EPA’s list of probable carcinogens.
What can I say? This is all news to me… I like the idea.
