Body Freezing is NOT Cryogenics

It’s cryonics, and cryonics is NOT the same as cryogenics.

We wish to clarify that cryogenics, which deals with extremely low temperatures, has no connection with cryonics, the belief that a person’s body or body parts can be frozen at death, stored in a cryogenic vessel, and later brought back to life. 

We do NOT endorse this belief, and indeed find it untenable.

Popular culture is full of mistaken references to cryogenics in terms of body freezing. Individuals, script writers, novelists, TV writers, everyone: Please do not confuse these two words.

If you need information on body freezing, search the web under cryonics.
