Our body after death

The bodies become remarkably active the instant the heart stops. And while the deceased may not understand what decomposition is or how the process works, biologists can.


There is life after death.


The irony is that in order to rot, our bodies must be alive.


1. Arrest of the heart


The heart stops beating and the blood becomes thicker. Doctors refer to this as "the time of death." When this occurs, all other sections of the body begin to perish at varying rates.


2. Coloring in two colors


Blood that has accumulated in the veins and arteries after the "motor" has finished spreading it through the vessels. Because the blood no longer flows, the body takes on a multicolored appearance. Its lower half turns purple-blue, like a delicious black eye after a great fight. The rules of physics are to blame: gravity causes blood to settle in the lower body. Because the blood has gathered elsewhere, the rest of the skin above will be deathly pale. The circulatory system no longer functions, the blood loses hemoglobin, which is responsible for the red color, and the blood discolours, resulting in a pale color of the tissues.


3. Extremely cold


The Latin term for "deadly cold" is algor mortis. Bodies lose 36.6°C over their lifetime and gradually acclimatise to room temperature. The temperature is dropping at a pace of around 0.8°C every hour.


4. rigour mortis


The muscles of the limbs harden and stiffen a few hours after death, when the entire body stiffens due to a drop in ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The eyes and neck muscles are the first to be affected by rigor mortis. The rigorous rigorous process is not infinite; it ends when the enzymatic degradation of muscle tissue begins.


5. erratic movement


Although the blood has drained and congealed, bodies can still quiver and bend for hours after death. When a person dies, muscle tissue contracts, and depending on how many and which muscles contract during the anguish, it may look like the deceased's body is moving.


6. A youthful appearance


Wrinkles fade away once the muscles stop flexing. Death is similar to Botox. The only problem is that you are already dead and so unable to rejoice in this condition.


7. The intestines have been evacuated.


Despite the fact that rigor mortis causes the body to freeze, not all organs do. Our sphincter finally achieves liberation at the moment of death, free of the brain's ceaseless control. When the brain no longer regulates involuntary functions, the sphincter opens and all "remnants" are ejected from the body.



8. Famously, corpses stink.


Corpses are notorious for stinking. Putrid odors are caused by an explosion of enzymes, which fungi and bacteria, which are imprisoned for breakdown processes, interpret as a signal to assault. There is a mass of everything in a corpse's tissues that allows them to actively multiply.


9 Invasion of Animals


Meat flies follow closely behind germs and fungi. They rush to place their eggs in the corpse, which hatch into larvae. The larvae happily gnaw on dead flesh. Mites, ants, spiders, and eventually larger scavengers join them.


10. Sound Effects of Parting


All physicians and nurses are scum! The bodies will scream, creak, and moan! All of this is the result of a bizarre combination of rigor mortis and violent intestinal activity, which continues to emit gas.


11. Digestion occurs in the intestines


Because the intestines are teeming with bacteria, they don't have to go far after death to pounce on the intestines. After the immune system loses control, the bacteria actually run wild and arrange a wild feast.


12. Eyes bulge from their sockets


The eyeballs burst out of their sockets and the tongues enlarge and protrude from the mouths as the organs breakdown and the intestines create gases.


13. Skin that is puffy


Gases tend to rise and separate the skin from the bones and muscles.


14. Rotting


Following the "sliding down" blood, all tissue cells tend to fall under the pull of gravity. Because of destroyed proteins, the body's tissues have already lost density. When putrefaction reaches its pinnacle, the bodies become "sugary" and spongy. Only bones are left in the end.


15. Bones are the last to be eaten.


After bacteria, fungi, and other organisms have decomposed flesh, the protein in bones degrades, revealing hydroxyapatite, a bone mineral. However, it deteriorates into dust over time.


Decomposition of the body


The decomposition process of the human body takes around 4 weeks on common and normal occasions, but it can vary depending on where the body is located.


In general, the decomposition time of the buried human body is one to two years until it decomposes completely. However, this time may vary depending on the conditions of the environment and the cadaver.


What is a body in a state of putrefaction?


Putrefaction is the decomposition of the body carried out by microbial action. The body's natural flora migrates from the intestines into the blood vessels and spreads throughout the body. Furthermore, putrefaction begins within an hour of death, but the peak of bacterial activity occurs around 24 hours.


This process occurs with all human beings after they die or after they are buried in the pits.


What happens 24 hours after death?


After we die, the body begins a process of decomposition, which gradually advances and progresses over time.

Then putrefaction occurs, which reaches its peak after 24 hours of death. Therefore, at this time the bacteria begin to devour the rest of the internal part of the body more intensively.



If the deceased was taking antibiotics, for example, the process takes much longer, or if he was buried very deep, the time taken could increase.


What happens to the decomposition of the human body in fresh water?


According to experiments carried out by scientists, who threw bodies of pigs into the water, which are very similar to human bodies, the human body goes through the same stages of decomposition, but the fish eat the rest of the body.


Furthermore, the microorganisms that feed on human flesh in the water do so much more visibly. That is, even for this reason, that deaths after a long time in lakes and rivers, it can become practically impossible to find the whole body, often finding only the parts that do not decompose, such as the bones.



How long after death does the body start to smell?


When the body is dead, the bacteria in the human intestine digest the proteins and excrete various gases with a strong and unpleasant odor. Generally, after 12h to 24h, room temperature starts the process.


The body releases gases such as methane, cadaverine and putrescine. These gases can cause, as they build up, a very strong odor. That is, yes, the smell that is released from the human body is something totally normal, and that it will almost always smell at the beginning of decomposition.
