A New Cryonics Lab in Florida

A mixed article in the Miami Herald (found via Transhumanity) on cryonics and the opening of a new provider. The Life Extension Foundation funds a lot of the new cryonics activity in the US, as well as more conventional healthy life extension research. It's important to remember that cryonic suspension is an educated gamble in scientific research, made by people who do not want to die but have no other medical options. It is unproven, but a far, far better option than the alternative. Most of the critics of cryonic suspension would no doubt be more receptive if they themslves were dying of old age or uncurable disease.
