Undertaker Caitlin Doughty has her own YouTube channel called Ask A Mortician and has been answering weird questions for years. What actually happens to the implants in our body when we die and get cremated?
If you have a hip replacement the titanium doesn’t get burned up and is even offered to the family.
It’s common knowledge that after a cremation all that’s really left is a pile of bones turned to ashes, and everything else like your hair, clothes and organs burn away, apart from metal.
In the video, Ask A Mortician said: “The metal has to be removed by hand or by a large magnet, and it’s not handled as biological waste because it was never really part of the body to begin with.
