Human Cadaver Recycling Plan Sounds Eerily Familiar

"Death will come for us all one day, but life will not fade from our bodies all at once. After our lungs stop breathing, our hearts stop beating, our minds stop racing, our bodies cool, and long after our vital signs cease, little pockets of cells can live for days, even weeks. Now scientists have harvested such cells from the scalps and brain linings of human corpses and reprogrammed them into stem cells. In other words, dead people can yield living cells that can be converted into any cell or tissue in the body."
—All I can say about this is "Fire bad."

I cannot believe what I am reading, what will we think on next? This issue was raised a few years back, but no one got it forward. In this age, we are recycling everything from waste oil recycling to metal and paper, it is normal that we will want to do more. I can understand that many people will find this so what offensive and I believe there is a moral side to this, but from an economic perspective, I believe this to be a good idea.
