    From the title, I thought you might be making a joke about body farms. But no, something else that’s equally as gross.

    “industry’s good intentions sometimes are always in conflict with the rush to make money”
    Seems like business, in general, is getting more and more predatory in the last couple decades. Maybe it was always thus. Or maybe the continuous press for deregulation leads to more and more discoveries of how business will behave if unfettered by regulation.And if tissue harvesting isn’t an industry in need of regulation, I don’t know what is.

    I am a 1-9 A-Z donar on my Canadian Health card. Meaning, they get every thing when I die. Which is good in two respects:

    1. no funeral cost

    2. Help further medical whatever. 

    Since I’m die, I couldn’t care less in that regard.
