Other pollutant source is the presence of radioisotopes that are in the corpse due among other things to radiotherapy to treat cancer, victim of which the deceased passed away.
-Among other emissions persistent organic pollutants indicate that the cremation contributes 0.2% in the global emission of dioxins and furans.
-The current demographic trends take Spain to lose one-tenth of the population in 40 years.

-Approximately; the number of births in 2021 will be 20% less than in 2012. Data in terms of births will not recover until 2030.
