Kudos to Mr.Stoll for taking on the whole sacred funeral home industry! About time they get some scrutiny! Amazing that they are still getting by with their same old outdated practices of embalming with formaldehyde and burning bodies in neighborhoods. When is the government going to finally realize the hazards of the outdated practices of funeral homes? They charge the deceased's loved ones a fortune to dispose of the body whether it be in the ground or burned in an incinerator and finally someone is exposing them. WONDERFUL! But it isn't going to be easy! Big Big money involved and many lobbyists and they are all fighting to protect the consumer right? WRONG! They are protecting their Big Big Money! Its as simple as that! I call this article an excellent beginning to ending an antiquated process of ripping off the sentimental public!

Embalming is abhorrent to many people and this regulation is ridiculous.

I second the kudos to Mr. Stoll and to the Institute for Justice for going against the state's special interest protection racket. This is good news for us all.

"A situation could arise where something might need to be done to a body to prevent a public health condition," Anderson said. I completely agree - when the Zombie outbreak happens, oh and it will, we will need as many embalming centers as possible - just to really make sure.
