What Happens To Our Bodies After We Die Is Gross, But Fascinating

Death is final. It”s something that every human who has ever lived had to go through. It”s also something that ever human who will ever live will need to go through. But what actually happens when our bodies die? What is the biological process of death and decay? People that die typically aren”t around afterwards to tell us what happened (duh).

Lucky for us, Scientific America created this very non-grotesque video about what happens to us when our bodies stop working

I doubt the decomposition process looks that clean in real life. What”s more important, though, is that we as humans understand and accept our own mortality. When we accept that, our lives are made richer in the process.
