Centuries ago, Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon set sail to find what all of us deeply desire; eternal life. His journey took him to Florida (of all places) where he eventually fell short. While Ponce de Leon’s dreams died in the humid swamps of Florida (just like the lives of many retired Americans) the concept of eternal life is still alive and well, thanks to a team of Russian scientists.
RUSSIAN COMPANY OFFERS TO FREEZE DEAD CLIENTS
Medicine is evolving. It always has and always will. Hence, one Russian company wants to take advantage of that. Do you have a disease without a cure? No problem! Just freeze yourself until there is one. At least, that’s the philosophy over at Kriorus, the leading cryogenics company in Europe and Asia. There, the company freezes their (dead) clients. Thus, giving them hope for a cure in the future.
RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS FIGURE OUT HOW TO PRESERVE YOUR BODY
If you choose to go with this Russian company, they will replace your blood with a special chemical solution. Hence, your cells are perfectly preserved while your body rests at -120 Centigrade. For the price of $36,000 Kriorus freezes your whole body. For those that can’t afford that, they’ll cut off your head and freeze that for a mere $12,000. Perhaps Futurama predicted the future quite accurately after all.
ARE RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE?
Go to any funeral and you’ll see the wide range of emotions on display. During times of peril such as this, people tend to make rash decisions. Decisions lacking sound logic. It might seem like a good idea to freeze your dead father for $36,000 but what if they never find a cure?
While these scientists might have good intentions, it’s possible they are taking advantage of some people and giving them false hope. For those that actually want to live forever, then the choice is yours. However, seeing where the world is going these days, that might not be such a grand idea.
