The Business of Death is a fascinating infographic found on LifeHealthPro.
A few of the interesting facts include:
- The yearly death rate for the world’s population is 55.3 million, which means about 2 people die every second.
- The most common methods of burial are cremation and interment; others choose to turn their bodies into artificial reefs, shoot their ashes into space, or have a traditional Tibetan Sky Burial.
- The average North American funeral costs between $7,000 and $10,000, the most expensive cost being the casket at $2,300.
- Your body could possibly be harvested for over $800,000.
