To answer this with any accuracy you would have to give it context.
There are simple truths oftentimes even in complex subject matter. Then there are perceptions of what one believes to be the truth when it isn't as simple as it appears on the surface.
Look at one of today's big stories; “Remains of US troops being disposed in a landfill”. Sounds callus and horrible right?
The report says "Partial & Fragments" not the wanton disposal of whole remains.
When a bomb goes off and there are troops, or other people, on top of it there are going to be bits & pieces spread over an area. A finger here a hand or foot there and those pieces are going to be mangled, torn shreds not neat little bits removed by a surgeon, many are going to be nondescript lumps of flesh. In a single blast you might have hundreds if not thousands of bits & pieces. In many cases they are not all from group, there might be Iraqis and Americans riding or grouped together.
How practical is it to try to identify every lump? What good does it really do?
When they say "War is hell" they mean it literally!
The other thing that isn't really clear is if they are referring to fragments of cremated bodies?
In my youth I worked in a crematorium and I can tell you first hand that in most cases you do not get everything that is left in your urn.
We put all that would fit in the boxes but there are some things, like major bones, that don't completely turn to ashes.
Those leftovers are generally just buried en mass.
You are forgetting that many equally beneficial foods are sweet and some truths are better left unsaid.
