Vedic Ethics: Chapter 5
Even the dead deserve respect and dignity
The MCI Code of Ethics Regulations require all medical health care providers to respect and honor the dignity of every person. 
Recently the Uttarakhand High Court ruled the rivers Ganges and Yamuna as living entities. As per the Indian Medical Association (IMA), even after death, a person should be treated as a living entity till his/her body mixes with the five basic elements of the nature.  
It is also a fact that even after death, the cornea can be transplanted for up to 72 hours and the bones can be preserved for years in the Bone bank. 
 
IMA feels that dignity of a dead body needs to be honored by doctors at the time of death. No dead body can be put on hold on the grounds of non-payment.

Animal products (meat and dairy) are the only dietary source of B12 (cobalamin - Cbl) for humans. Strict vegans who do not consume any animal products are at a high risk of developing nutritional Cbl deficiency.
