also in jenkins humanure handbook he says that we have been using  
composting to turn dead animals into compost.  he does not say  
anything about composting humans though.  i imagine the process is  
the same. does anyone out there know anything of this practice?  i  
would love to be spread under a fruit or nut tree or even on a field  
after my body is dead.  however i currently have concerns about  
cycling heavy metals and possible bioaccumulation in food and people.
