Vitrification agents in cryonics

This article goes into some detail about the vitrification processes that have been developed.

Vitrification is a technique that is used to minimise ice damage when freezing. This is what companies like Alcor use to cryonically preserve human organs.

I am still not a big fan of cryonics, as there is not even a facility near where I live, there is no guarantee the company can stay afloat, there is not even a guarantee that it would be successful. It is the last option but a pretty poor option at that.

I suppose I would do it if I was able to, but it's not something that is practical for me right now.

What's so great about this Larouche guy?

Btw, your blog is horrible to read. I suggest making it more readable.

Anyway, thanks for leaving your comment.
