This article mistakenly and misleadingly conflates two organizations, Alcor 
Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, AZ (cryonics) and Life Extension 
Foundation in Hollywood, FL (vitamins/dietary supplements). Two very 
distinct and separate organizations, doing different things. Saul Kent 
happens to figure prominently in both, which partly accounts for the confusion.
