with the medical conditions many obese people suffer, i would think they would want to study the bodies, even if they do distort during embalming.

OK so let me keep track.  The gays can't donate organs for transplant, and the fatties can't donate their bodies for research.  What's next?

My uncle and I had a conversation about donating your body for medical research after death. He told me that the last time he talked with the local hospitals, they reported being unable to accept any cadavers because they had too many as it was. Apparently a lot of people got a hard-on thinking about novice surgeons mutilating their corpses.

She had to be big-framed, just look at the size of the canvas.

As someone who teaches anatomy, I can tell you that grossly overweight people are very difficult to dissect, and rarely embalm well. We turn away donations because of this relatively frequently, and much more so as the population gets fatter.

I dissected a cadaver in med. school., and frankly I am happy it was lean. Having things looking and placed where your material says it should be made things easier. And of course the mechanics of the situation.

Black people can't donate because of lead poisoning fears.

Because we're both giant douches who don't give a rat's hairy ass what you think should be done with your body after you die. We already have a plan to go grave robbing after your burial.

This.

Also, maybe donate her to a body farm. You might have to arrange for delivery (I believe they typically only pick up within 150 miles or so) but body farms wouldn't reject a fatty, I wouldn't think, since the whole point of body farms is to study how people decompose in different settings, and I'd think variety in people-type would be of benefit to them.

I've arranged for my body to be used for medical research after my death.  However, there's a prominently displayed proviso that they're under no obligation to accept it.  All depends on storage, what kind of research they're doing at the moment, etc. etc.

Therefore, I still have funds tucked away for a basic cremation so as not to burden my family.

Don't gain too much weight before you die anyway; they don't like to cremate the obese, either. You might need to pay double or triple, at least.

Or maybe their families don't want to spend the $$ to bury them.  ;-)

No, because teaching medicine to people who have never seen the inside of a person is more difficult when the person they are learning from doesn't have a 'normal' body. This is also why we don't accept donors who die from massive trauma.

My mother wanted her body donated but she died of generalized cancer, we decided he body probably would not be accepted because of this and did not donate it. I really don't know if it would have been accepted or not but at that moment I felt that my father did not want it done so I went on with his decision. We never talked about it but I think my brother and sister felt the same as me. Now every year he goes to the cemetery where her ashes were buried, he would not have that he we had given the body away.

I've always wondered: why is that? Why not "I've identified the body for you, but am not claiming it in any way. Goodbye."? Seriously. If I die at the hospital, let them figure out what to do with my body.

they dont, but as per the article they do not accept cadavers over a certain bmi because of the embalming process, which leads me to conclude they are most likely do not have obese cadavers,  i am sure they would be more work, but with so many obese people around now, i think it would make a certain amount of sense to use them.

From my experience, there weren't any obese cadavers.

Students dissecting cadavers aren't practising real procedures. They're learning how the body looks like, vs. the material they have in their books. There's no benefit to introducing obese cadavers, when the material available doesn't discuss that.

This is true, better to deliver the corpse to an institution which actually studies the problem of obesity, not one that is trying to teach gross anatomy.  Pretty straight forward here.
