Facts about human decomposition…

Not too gross (you’ll never see gore on here), but definitely interesting.

  • "Human decomposition occurs approximately 4 minutes after death has occured. The onset is governed by a process called autolysis - or self-digestion."
  • "Autolysis usually does not become apparent for a few days … It is first observed by the appearance of skin slippage where large sheets of skin slough off the body."
  • After autolysis takes place long enough, putrefaction occurs.┬áThis is the destruction of soft tissues of the body by micro-organisms.
  • Alongside this process is rapid decay, where insects begin the inhabit the corpse.
  • In dry areas mummification occurs since skin is not consumed by decomposers and often becomes hard and leathery.
  • Bones continue to decompose through diagenesis, which is the process of natural compounds and nutrients leaching out to the surface of the bone.
  • At room temperature, it takes a body about 128.5 days to decompose under average environmental circumstances.

Creepy!
