Currently, cryonics is the most irrelevant part of the above, unless
you're lucky, or live in the right place.

### I wouldn't agree here - cryonics is very important, to the the point
where changing citzenship and localization might be beneficial if needed to
improve access. Even the healthiest of us have a significant risk of sudden
death. While good nutrition and other parts of the regime matter, they
usually do not address the short-term risk. If the Singularity comes as
predicted in 2006, this is all the risk that matters.
