The real reason people want you to live a healthy lifestyle.
Federal agents have seized records from a national company that solicits thousands of Americans to donate their bodies to science each year, then profits by dissecting the parts and distributing them for use by researchers and educators.
Funeral home owners invested 50 percent stake in body broker companies. According to an investor prospectus reviewed by Reuters, the new firmís five-year revenue forecast was $13.8 million based on 2,100 donated bodies.
Bio Care visited father and daughter, and made a heartfelt pitch: The generous gift of his body to science would benefit medical students, doctors and researchers. Fasold said Bio Care cited several sample possibilities, including that her fatherís body might be used to train surgeons on knee replacement techniques.
Fasoldís view of Bio Care soon changed. It took weeks longer than promised to receive what she was told were her fatherís cremated remains. Once she received them, she suspected they were not his ashes because they looked like sand. She was correct.
In April 2010, Fasold was told by authorities that her fatherís head was among body parts discovered at a medical incinerator. She also learned Ė for the first time, she said Ė that Bio Care was in the business of selling body parts.
