Lol I would not eat the fruit from a tree with a known dead body feeding it. Even if the science claims it’s okay it just seems weird.

The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.

Parents: "Every Apple from that tree is a bite of Grandpa!"

Kids: "What??!!"

How's that weird? Every fruit you've ever eaten probably has been feeding from some dead body, whether human or not.

The atoms in the food you eat, the air your breathe, and the water you drink have been part of trillions of dead bodies.

Getting a little soylent greeny I agree
