What happens to the body after death
• What happens to the body after the death of
Death is a taboo subject for the vast majority of normal people. End of the road so frightens us that we have created countless religions and beliefs, designed to comfort, soothe, encourage ...
Unable to accept the final verdict, and people can not entirely rule out the death of his thoughts. Wisest course to adopt a ingenious maxim of Epicurus. Stoic quite reasonably remarked: "While I am here - there is no death, and when it comes - I do not have to be." But stoicism - the lot of few. For everyone else, we decided to write a short, based on the medicine guide to what happens to our bodies after death.
Almost immediately after the time of death, the body starts several irreversible processes. It begins with autolysis, roughly speaking, self-digestion. The heart is no longer saturates the blood with oxygen - from the same cells suffer shortages. All the by-products of chemical reactions do not receive the usual way of recycling, accumulating in the body. The first to go to the expense of the liver and the brain. First, because here there is most enzymes, the second because it contains a large amount of water.
The color of
Then comes the turn, and other organs. The vessels have been destroyed, so that the blood under the influence of gravity, goes down. human skin is deathly pale. That such is dead mass culture: think of pale vampires and zombies are attacking defenseless beauties of dark corners. If the filmmakers tried to make the picture more believable, they would have to show that the dead man and the rear of the aggressor - the dark from the accumulated blood.

Nothing functions and body temperature begins to gradually decrease. The cells do not receive the usual dose of energy, protein strands become immovable. Joints and muscles acquire a new property - they become stiff. Then comes the rigor mortis. Eyelids, jaw and neck muscles are dealt at the beginning, then comes the turn of the rest.
Who lives in the house
The deceased's body is no longer a man, but there is a brand new, cadaveric ecosystem. Actually, most of the bacteria from which it is lived in the body before. But now they begin to behave differently, in accordance with the changed conditions. You could say that life goes on in our body - this is only our consciousness to this relationship no longer has.
The decomposition of the human body - not very pleasant sight for most normal (and still alive) individuals. Soft tissues fall into salts, liquids and gases. Almost all in physics. This process is called molecular death. At this stage, the bacteria continue their business expansion.
unpleasant details of
The gas pressure in the body increases. On the skin, blisters, so the gas is trying to get out. On the whole body begins to slide skin grafts. Usually, all the accumulated degradation products find their natural way out - the anus and other openings. Sometimes, however, the gas pressure is increased so that it just breaks the former human stomach.
Back to the roots
But this process is not complete. Lying on the bare ground dead body literally goes back to nature. His fluid flow down into the soil, insects also spread the bacteria around. In criminologists have a special term "cadaveric islet expansion." They described a patch of soil generously, um, fertilizer dead body.
