Ask Marilyn: Should I Donate Organs or Give My Body to Science?
Janice Lindsay of Damariscotta, Maine, writes:
Marilyn: Which has the greater overall benefit when a person dies: to donate the body for medical research or education; or to donate the organs to benefit individuals?
I believe that donating organs is better because it represents an important application of what we've learned from that research and education. But keep in mind that one can do both: donate organs and leave the rest of the body to science.
