    Still requires cremation, that I want, but I like this idea. Just told my kid to "plant" me when I go...she said she has a 'black thumb', told her I'd be dead anyway and wouldn't care.

    England is considering an opt out organ donation system. The onus iwould be on you to opt out, otherwise any useful organs or tissue may be used after your death.

    Yes. It;s getting to be a problem.

    Well, sort of.

    As Orthodox goes, there is strong controversy, to say the very least about "Open Orthodoxy," which like other movements makes up its own rules, the only difference being one of degree.

    Humans do not fit the required criteria to be kosher. So yeah, no cannibalism.

    Is A Human Kosher? | The Jewish Press - JewishPress.com | Rabbi Raphael Fuchs | 25 Nisan 5773 ? April 4, 2013 | JewishPress.com
    The conclusion of the article does not entirely make sense:

    Since the Torah never permitted it, human meat remains prohibited as it always was. But that original prohibition did not render the item a non-kosher food. It only means that we cannot eat it.
    If we may not eat it - i.e., if it is prohibited - that means that by definition it is not kosher.

    cool beans.. the US until today has not really grasped the concept of recycling their own garbage.. but human bodies, THAT will make an impact on the environment.

    sure.

    But..what if you are eating a Jewish person and their diet is Kosher? After all, you are what you eat.
