California Passes Legislation Allowing The Liquification Of Human Bodies

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is creepy…reminds me of the “smokies”…the insider term for the vehicles they bring out from the underground bases and basically cremate all the homeless ppl they kill in. No ash, no smoke, nothing. (See my article “Proof FEMA Is Killing People Who Come To Them For Disaster Relief“)

(Natural News) Last Oct. 15, 2017, California Governor Jerry Brown signed the controversial Assembly Bill 967, or the bill that makes it legal to dispose of human remains through water cremation. Also known as alkaline hydrolysis, Californians will be able to choose this cremation method for their loved ones as early as 2020.

Despite its name, water cremation doesn’t actually make use of water. The process entails placing a body into a steel vat containing an alkaline solution composed of 95 percent water and five percent potassium hydroxide or lye. The combination of chemicals, pressure, and heat that reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit (or 177 degrees Celsius) quicken the rate of decomposition until all that are left behind are bones, sterile water, and any medical implants. The remaining bones are then crushed into ash and returned to the family.

Matter Baskerville, an Illinois-based funeral director whose funeral home utilizes water cremation, has stated that the process leaves behind a finer, softer ash than what is normally produced by flame-based cremation.

According to DailyMail.co.uk, water cremation was first developed as a way to get rid of animal carcasses by processing them into plant food. It remained this way until the 1990s when two researchers at Albany Medical College in New York began disposing of lab animals through alkaline hydrolysis. These researchers then became involved with a company called WR2 that constructed the first water cremation machine that could handle a human body. The first known use of the machine was in 2006 in the Mayo Clinic’s anatomical bequest program in Rochester, Minnesota.

Proponents of water cremation have touted it as a green alternative to standard cremations and burials amid growing concerns over the carbon footprints of these methods. For one, the use of energy to heat and cool the lye is said to emit 80 percent less carbon dioxide than flame cremations that burn natural gas. Water cremation also leaves behind inorganic materials like tooth fillings and pacemakers, which could ease the fears of toxic chemicals polluting the environment. (Related: California may legalize “liquid cremation” in bizarre attempt to fight global warming.)

Moreover, the roiling lye has been said to sterilize organic materials, break down toxic chemicals, and reduce the risk of disease spreading. Joe Wilson, CEO of alkaline hydrolysis systems manufacturer Bio-Response Solutions, told ScientificAmerican.com: “It’s hot as hell in there, and alkali is a powerful sterilant at temperature. Even the hardiest pathogen, an anthrax spore, is easily killed.”

The new law will require funeral homes to apply for permits from their local water authorities before they can offer water cremation as an option. These permits will allow the funeral homes to send the remains into the sewage system on-site. Alternatively, the funerals homes could partner up with companies experienced in handling and disposing biological waste. These came as responses to concerns over the high pH levels involved in water cremation, as the pH of the discharged wastes goes above 11.

While some people have approached the idea of water cremation with trepidation, others have embraced it as a huge and positive change in cremation. Todd Gloria, the California assemblyman who wrote the bill, is one of them. Gloria has stated that he hopes water cremation will become the new norm, and is taking the necessary steps to do so. “I plan to be cremated. It would be poetic if I could take advantage of my own bill,” said Gloria.

    Which leaves the question is this how the jews were actually disposed of in Germany since a bread oven operating temperature is 1000 degrees less than that required for cremation which also needs a ceramic liner(1500 degrees melts the iron oven to slag – bread ovens operate at 400 degrees)

  • Man

    so…. what is the issue?

    Boy, I can remember when mafia types would use a like method to dispose of murder victims. Bet they’ll be happy they can just buy a machine now, to do it for them.
