did i say i know everything? I'm still and always learning. the problem with flash freezing is it only works on basic cells, however there a few animals that have a natural solution to the problem, the only drawback is that they are all cold blooded animals, otherwise we would probably have an answer. the other problem is you can bathe a cell in cryoprotective solution where doing such to a still living being would cause severe damage, but they are working on the problem and don't forget that our bodies are made of the only liquid that expands when frozen, if not for that little detail humans could easily freeze themselves for preservation. also here's another reason, look up why frost bite happens.
here's a good link on the subject as well.

Actually, it depends how you freeze them. If you are able to retain a relatively close window in the post-mortem interval, and inject them with enough solvents that will halt cellular metabolism/division (like DMSO for example) and then freeze them IMMEDIATELY, then there is the possibility that cryostasis is a viable means to preserve tissues, and bodies for that matter. I suppose the only real "issue" would be waking them up.. it would need to be done slowly, so as not to shock the cells, and to also remove the solvent as soon as enough electrical synapses have been reestablished to get the heart and brain going. Now what I cannot say is whether or not ones memories/previous brain funstions are intact... that is up to speculation.

Oh, and to prevent the body from dehydrating to the point of no return, you would also need to constantly supply the body with enough fluids... also possible with intravenous pumps and a different solvent, I am sure.
(BTW this is ENTIRELY speculation. I am not aware of any actual procedures that have frozen down an entire organism with the intention of waking it backup... I am merely drawing conclusions based on what I know).

that's basically what i said in my first post, they now have a synthetic blood that would possibly work if they tweak it for freezing which may pave the way to making it feasible soon if they create a bio safe water substitute(assuming they haven't already done this and aren't telling the public).
