Scott and Scurvy - Kuinka keripukin syy löydettiin, kadotettiin ja löydettiin uudelleen.
Finally, that one of the simplest of diseases managed to utterly confound us for so long, at the cost of millions of lives, even after we had stumbled across an unequivocal cure.

Rikkivedystä: kryoniikkaakin ajatellen oikein kiinnostava aine. Ennen perfuusiota tuleva iskeeminen aika on nimittäin käytännössä usein ongelma. Pidetään peukkuja.

Two recent studies cast doubt that the effect can be achieved in larger mammals. A 2008 study failed to reproduce the effect in pigs, concluding that the effects seen in mice were not present in larger mammals.[23] Likewise a paper by Haouzi et al noted that there is no induction of hypometabolism in sheep, either.[24]
