Body-Eating Mushroom Death Suit Spares Earth from Our Inner Toxins

Should we commit our bodies to a cleaner Earth after we leave its confines?

Not so-fun death fact: if you choose to be cremated, you will be responsible for releasing into the atmosphere the 216 toxic pollutants that the Centers for Disease Control says exist in each and every one of our bodies.

Potential remedy to not so fun death fact: the ‘Infinity Burial Suit’, invented by bio-artist Jae Rhim Lee.

Embroidered with thread-infused mushroom spores—whatever that tongue-twisting adjective-noun combo means—the suit claims to be able to decompose your body after you die, a planet-friendly solid which will help prevent an overabundance of fat-soluble toxins from re-entering Mother Nature's soil.
