Thanks for posting the video. Yet another video masquerading as an unbiased evaluation of cryonics. The essential argument is "sure...there isn't any evidence that proves that cryonics is impossible, but it will be really difficult to reanimate someone, so don't do it".

 

What you will find out from the ACS:

 

Sure we can freeze human cells...but a whole body will be really difficult.

 

Of course the cryoprotectants work...but they are not yet perfect.

 

Yes we can freeze worms and they function fine after reanimation...but humans are a lot bigger

 

 

blah, blah, blah.....

 

Everyone I know who is signed up for cryonics accepts the difficulty of preservation and reanimation. They view it as well worth the risk and the cost.
