  1. I would’ve thought it be just the opposite. Rumor has it here that we have plenty of bodies to study, but not enough organ donors. People are scared the doctors won’t do their best to prolong their lives if they want the organ. A funny story about cadavers… when my father was in college a body began to act as if it were sitting up. He ran out of that lab so quickly he broke someone’s nose with the door! 🙂
