Several years ago some manufacturers started making metal caskets that have a rubber seal between the case and the lid to provide an airtight environment inside the casket. To justify the significantly higher price on these caskets they were saying that these caskets would better protect the remains, even suggesting that these caskets would "preserve" the remains. Nothing could be further from the truth. Human remains naturally decompose regardless of them being in an airtight container or not. In fact, the airtight container interferes with dehydration, which is a natural part of the decomposition process. Sealed caskets have been widely criticized by coroners and consumer organizations. more
