Are we polluting the earth with chemicals? Since the beginning of the world, humans were being buried once deceased or some were cremated one way or another. At some point came crematoriums and embalming fluids. Nowadays whether a person is berried or cremated the embalming fluid is used.
The embalming fluid is used to sanitize the body, but this fluid is comprised of different chemicals and some of these chemicals are formaldehyde, methanol, ethanol and other solvents. These chemicals can not be good for the earth. Animals are not full of these chemicals when they die and they are food for other living organisms that are in the ground and at the same time they fertilize the earth.
The only country that I’ve read reports on that makes it compulsory to cremate the human body is China. That should be compulsory everywhere. If cremation was enforced it would give credence to the phrase from the Bible; 'Ye were born of dust and to dust Ye shall return'. That doesn't mean that once deceased you are food for those dwellers in the ground or poison for them.
I wonder why these anti-pollution people have never tried to get the government to pass a law, to have every human body cremated instead of filling them with chemicals that can kill living animals that are deep in the ground.
That’s my rant of the day.
