That's not healthy even with standard cadavers.
Well I wasn't exactly saying on a daily basis but you would think it'd be ideal to do it in a situation like the prison (or even Hershel's farm but too late for that) when an area needs to be cleared out, they could have a specific set of clothes to put the zombie blood etc on them then clear out the walkers slowly but surely instead of doing the same sneak attacks, way more safe imo.
They could even do it on food and supplies missions but for some reason it hasn't even occurred to them again.
Only issue would be other survivors killing or shooting at them thinking they're walkers.
