YourLifeSolution.com, a service which provides users online life insurance quotes instantly, is today publishing alternatives to traditional burial. "Dollar-for-dollar, burial is hardly a wise decision. It costs far less to simply donate your body to science, there's greater possibilities with cryonics and cryogenics, and there's no objective value to a headstone or to having your corpse filled with toxic chemicals so you can look alive for another few days. It's not only over-priced, but the funeral industry is commonly subject to many complaints and even lawsuits due to the questionable ways it sometimes operates. Selling someone a 'deluxe' casket at a several fold mark-up during one of the hardest times in their life really doesn't seem like the best business practice, or even remotely the best decision for the family involved", said Eric Smith, the founder of YourLifeSolution.com.
Alternatives to Burial Which are Far Less Costly According to YourLifeSolution.com:
Cremation- According to the Neptune Society, a cremation provider, cremation services start at about $245 and an entire ceremony with cremation included will often run only $1600.
Donate Body to Science- MedCure, a organization that facilitates one's wishes to donate their remains to science, will provide cremation after a person's body is utilized for science, and will send the ashes to relatives if need be, and does this for no cost at all. "I've been a member of MedCure for years. Being buried when science still needs cadavers is a complete waste in my opinion", said Eric Smith.
Plastination- This is essentially a new-age form of mummification which preserves the body for display such as the bodies which were preserved for the BodyWorlds exhibit.
Cryogenics- While significantly more expensive than traditional burial, cryogenics or cryonics (a different preservation method), both allow individuals to attempt to preserve their minds to be brought into consciousness decades or possibly centuries in the future. While it's yet to be proven to work, many believe the cost to get that chance is better than the cost to simply bury one's self with no future hope of reanimation.
