About Alcor Life Extension Inc. 

    The Alcor Life Extension Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in
1972, is the world leader in cryonics, and cryonics research and technology.
Cryonics is the science of using ultra-cold temperatures to suspend and
preserve human life.  The intent is that technologically advanced scientific
procedures will one day be available to revive cryopreserved humans and
restore them to good health.

including any potential damage that results from the cryopreservation

    Alcor performed its first human cryopreservation in 1976. Since then,
Alcor has engaged in long-term patient care as well as cryopreservation
procedures. Among Alcor's scientific achievements is the use of advanced
