Hello.. this is my summary assignment, please give me some feed backs. Thanks a lot.
Recently, donating the body after death to science necessities become a new trend. A number of medical schools around the country have seen this trend. The University of Minnesota for example, it received more than 550 cadavers last year, up from 170 in 2002. The University of Buffalo got almost 600 last year. Others that reported increases include Duke University, the University of Arizona and state agencies in Maryland and Virginia.
There are some reasons for the trend seems to be twofold. The paradigm of allowing a love one corpse to be carved up is not a taboo again. However, not too long ago, it was taboo. The other reason is the increasing cost of a traditional burial now day. As of 2014, a traditional burial cost around $7,200, an increase of 29 percent from a decade earlier.
Many schools use cadavers for medical research. Cadaver is a corpse that used for educational necessity. When they are done, they cremate the body or return the cremains to the family at no cost. Understanding the human anatomy and practicing surgical techniques using a real human cadaver is infinitely more useful to medical students than plastic, rubber or virtual alternative others.
