Well it's about time that people start writing about the actual science
that is involved in ethical cryonics ("ethical cryonics" being my term for
cryonics that is done with full disclosure of case reports and the primary
focus being on the science of the industry). Usually reports about
cryonics center on the "kookiness" of the idea, as opposed to the plausible
science of the field --perhaps rightfully so. Let's just hope that
articles such as this help folks like Greg Fahy get the respect they
undeniably deserve.
