Embalming not a green last wish

 

A chara, – I wish to protest at the widespread practice of embalming the dead. The toxic chemicals used in this process cause untold damage to the soil and pollution of the water. Embalming is totally unnecessary and seems to be another unwanted American import brought into this country without any regard for its consequences. I would like to make people more aware of the harmful consequences and encourage people to think before choosing this practice. – Yours, etc,
