    It seems like an interesting solution, but I don't understand how they actually managed to perform studies for it. Unless they intentionally withheld information about the procedure from the patients, I can't see 4 hospitals of patients agreeing to the procedure.

    ... I did not know this, but it makes a lot of sense to me.

    Seeing as people who have been effectively 'flash frozen' after falling into freezing waters, and having their body tempertures drop to just above freezing, not enough to cause the water in their body's to crystalize and rupture the cells, but easily enough to have suspended metabolism, not stop it. Thus, when they are warmed up properly, besides a bit of short term memory damage due to the shock to the brain, they're fine.

    ... It also leads to the interesting speculation about what our organic body's are really capable of, without all the artificial limiters and ineficient design mechanisms.

    Speaking quite litterally, your body already has nanomachines that modify your bone structure to acount for changing stresses on it, if those cells where to reinforce bone with carbon molecules that are split from the CO2, or more efficiently from a more complex molecule, your bones could be massively stronger.

    If muscle cells used slightly different proteins, they could be entire orders of magnitute stronger, with the very same cells being modified to intake all the types of energy available to them simultaneously [like the heart], and with more efficient structuring, they could also output far more energy.

    Of course, the toll of such modifications would almost certainly be a metabolism to rival a star, and a life-span that's been [unassisted by technology] quartered.

    I like this article.

    It was easy to comprehend and it had a very strong point that they argued reasonably well.

    Plus, they mentioned my name. ^_~

    Or it could be Becker .

    I personally don't think this study will necessarily find a way to rescusitate a person who has been dead for hours, but it does provide the hospital a body to use. So after the organs have been taken out for donation, I can see people using cell groups from the cadavers to help people who have cancer and other cell problems.
