A one-volume biography of Roosevelt by the 1 New York Times bestselling biographer of JFK, focusing on his career as an incomparable politician, uniter, and dealmakerIn an era of great national divisiveness, there could not be a more timely biography of one of our greatest presidents than one that focuses on his unparalleled strategic skills as a unifier and a consensus maker.
Roosevelt: A Political Life takes a fresh look at the many compelling questions of his remarkable presidency: How did a man who came from so When used at high concentrations, cryoprotectants can stop ice formation completely. Cooling and solidification without crystal formation is called vitrification. No ice crystal damage was found;  cellular damage was due to dehydration and toxicity of the cryoprotectant solutions. Costs can include payment for medical personnel to be on call for death, vitrification, transportation in dry ice to a preservation facility, and payment into a trust fund intended to cover indefinite storage in liquid nitrogen and future revival costs.
As of , about corpses have been cryogenically preserved in the U. Taking into account the lifecycle of corporations, it is extremely unlikely that any cryonics company could continue to exist for sufficient time to take advantage even of the supposed benefits offered: historically, even the most robust corporations have only a one-in-a-thousand chance of surviving even one hundred years.
Without cryoprotectants, cell shrinkage and high salt concentrations during freezing usually prevent frozen cells from functioning again after thawing. Ice crystals can also disrupt connections between cells that are necessary for organs to function. Attempts to recover frozen mammals by simply rewarming them were abandoned by Large vitrified organs tend to develop fractures during cooling,  a problem worsened by the large tissue masses and very low temperatures of cryonics. Actual cryonics organizations use vitrification without a chemical fixation step,  sacrificing some structural preservation quality for less damage at the molecular level.
Some scientists, like Joao Pedro Magalhaes, have questioned whether using a deadly chemical for fixation eliminates the possibility of biological revival, making chemical fixation unsuitable for cryonics.
In , Robert L. Outside the cryonics community, many scientists have strong skepticism toward cryonics methods. Cryobiologist Dayong Gao states that "we simply don't know if subjects have been damaged to the point where they've 'died' during vitrification because the subjects are now inside liquid nitrogen canisters. Those who believe that revival may someday be possible generally look toward presently-nonexistent bioengineering , molecular nanotechnology,  or nanomedicine  as key technologies.
Revival would require repairing damage from lack of oxygen, cryoprotectant toxicity, thermal stress fracturing , freezing in tissues that do not successfully vitrify, finally followed by reversing the cause of death.
In many cases extensive tissue regeneration would be necessary. According to Cryonics Institute president Ben Best, cryonics revival may be similar to a last in, first out process. People cryopreserved in the future, with better technology, may require less advanced technology to be revived because they will have been cryopreserved with better technology that caused less damage to tissue.
In this view, preservation methods would get progressively better until eventually they are demonstrably reversible, after which medicine would begin to reach back and revive people cryopreserved by more primitive methods.
Historically, a person had little control regarding how their body was treated after death as religion held jurisdiction over the ultimate fate of their body. However, bodies may legally be shipped to other countries for cryonic freezing.
In London in , the English High Court ruled in favor of a mother's right to seek cryopreservation of her terminally ill year-old daughter, as the girl wanted, contrary to the father's wishes. The decision was made on the basis that the case represented a conventional dispute over the disposal of the girl's body, although the judge urged ministers to seek "proper regulation" for the future of cryonic preservation following concerns raised by the hospital about the competence and professionalism of the team that conducted the preservation procedures.
Richardson, the Iowa Court of Appeals ordered for the disinterment of Richardson, who was buried against his wishes for cryopreservation. A detailed legal examination by Jochen Taupitz concludes that cryonic storage is legal in Germany for an indefinite period of time. In , writing in Bioethics , David Shaw examines the ethical status of cryonics.
The arguments against it include changing the concept of death, the expense of preservation and revival, lack of scientific advancement to permit revival, temptation to use premature euthanasia, and failure due to catastrophe. Arguments in favor of cryonics include the potential benefit to society, the prospect of immortality, and the benefits associated with avoiding death.
Shaw explores the expense and the potential payoff, and applies an adapted version of Pascal's Wager to the question. In , Charles Tandy wrote in favor of cryonics, arguing that honoring someone's last wishes is seen as a benevolent duty in American and many other cultures.
Cryopreservation was applied to human cells beginning in with frozen sperm, which was thawed and used to inseminate three women. The middle-aged woman from Los Angeles, whose name is unknown, was soon thawed out and buried by relatives. The first body to be frozen with the hope of future revival was James Bedford 's, a few hours after his cancer-caused death in In , a Y-Combinator startup called Nectome was recognized for developing a method of preserving brains with chemicals rather than by freezing.
The method is fatal, performed as euthanasia under general anethesia, but the hope is that future technology would allow the brain to be physically scanned into a computer simulation, neuron by neuron.
According to The New York Times , cryonicists are predominantly nonreligious white males, outnumbering women by about three to one.
