Increase in Large Coffins Due to Obesity

Coffin Manufacturers in The Netherlands say that demand for large coffins is growing due to the increasing obesity of Dutchmen. These coffins are far more expensive than regular ones because they have to be made by hand. Furthermore 60% of Dutch crematoria have adapted their ovens to be able to cremate obese people. Henry Keizer of the National Organization of Crematoria says that by now in all regions of the Netherlands, there is the opportunity to burn obese people. This process though lasts longer than normal due to the surplus of fat. It is also difficult to control. Keizer says that obese people should preferably be cremated at the beginning of the day when the oven is not yet at full temperature.!9CRmlqrQiuLdo/.
