200 people’s heads and bodies have been frozen and are being kept in a lab in the hopes of being resurrected in the future.
An entire person may be frozen for roughly £150,000, while just the skull and brain can be frozen for around £59,000. The Alcor Life Extension Foundation is offering cryonics as a treatment option.

Alcor believes that science and technology will evolve to the point that it will be possible to bring the dead back to life in the future.
The Sun says that bodies are transferred to Scottsdale, Arizona, where the firm is situated, and kept frozen for decades or perhaps centuries.
Experts gradually reduce the temperature of the bodies before storing them in a massive liquid nitrogen tank at -196 degrees. To prevent ice crystals from developing, each corpse is normally wrapped in ice and frozen before the blood is replenished with a cryoprotectant solution.
The firm was formed in 1972 by Linda and Fred Chamberlain.
When Fred was working as a NASA engineer and Linda was in college, they met at a cryonics symposium in early 1970.
“Our intentions were to build an organization that might save people’s lives and allows them to be returned to health and function,” she told CNET.
“If we’d known how hard it was going to be, we might not have tried to do it. But once you get started, something about saving lives, you can’t give up.”
Cryonics supporters believe that death is a process of deterioration and not the moment the heart stops. But critics have dismissed the industry as science fiction or even fraud.
One of the bodies held by Alcor belongs to two-year-old Matheryn Naovaratpong, who was nicknamed Einz. The toddler’s parents, from Thailand, vowed to do all they could to keep their daughter alive after she was diagnosed with rare brain cancer in 2015.
Desperate to find a way to save their little girl, Sahatorn and Nareerat Naovaratpong turned to an extreme solution.
When it became evident that no medical intervention would be able to stop the relentless march through Einz’s body, they decided Einz would have her body frozen in order to give her a second shot at life. (With thanks to Mirror)
