I just read this on the bbc news website too.
I've got to say, this put a chill up my spine.
Is this what we have come to? We bury our dead so we have comfort knowing they are at rest, and that we have a place to visit when we miss them.
At least with cremation we can scatter the ashes over a place which our loved one cherished, or keep them in an urn for us to keep close.
But this, liquidation of the body which is then poured into the water supply is inhuman.

still...i don't support this. it's creepy and gross.
The Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and the University of Florida use it for human cadavers, and it has been used for two decades on animal carcasses.
