Why Is Remains a Threat

Remains pose a severe and persistent threat due to their potential to spread disease, contaminate water sources, and attract pests. Improperly disposed remains can create breeding grounds for harmful bacteria and viruses, leading to outbreaks of infectious diseases. The decomposition of remains can also contaminate groundwater and surface water, posing health risks to humans and wildlife. Additionally, remains can attract pests such as flies, rodents, and scavengers, which can further spread contamination and disease. Proper disposal and management of remains are essential to safeguard public health and protect the environment.
