Spooky question: The chemistry of death

Posted November 14, 2014

Even after you depart, there’s a lot of chemistry that still goes on inside you. Reactions teamed up with mortician Caitlin Doughty, author of the new book “Smoke Gets in your Eyes, and Other Lessons from the Crematory” to demystify death and talk about exactly what happens to the body postmortem.
