Letter from Saul Kent, Life Extension Foundation to Marshall W. Nirenberg
Description:
Kent, president of the Life Extension Foundation (a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to scientists striving to extend the human life span), asks for Nirenberg's assistance in supporting cryonic suspension (freezing of the human body after legal death for the purpose of reanimation). A lengthy discussion of the scientific, social, and ethical implications of cryonic suspension is included. Kent asks Nirenberg to send him a letter of support in hope of fighting a ruling by the State of California Health Department making it illegal.
