Would you give your body to science after death?

There are a handful of people who would give their bodies to science after they die. Which can be quite useful. It might help someone find a cure for a disease or use your body for educational purposes like in labs. But at the same time, the very thought of giving our bodies to science might make some of us squeamish. What do you think. Have you or would you give your body to science?

Your idea is a very noble one. I am a medical student myself, and have learnt many things by dissecting on others bodies. So i think it is my duty to donate my body also for this purpose. But i dont think my parents will agree for this. I will strongly try to convinci them in this regard. I am also an hindu, but i dont agree with the answer given by other person here. Relion dont demand from us anything, it hust shows some guidelines for us to live our lives more happily. Hence it must not be a hinderance for such a nice thing. I think your attempt is succesful as you have proveked atleast one person to think in positive for the purpose.
