Return to life from death possible claims new book

life and death\

A new book has claimed that people can be resuscitated even after they have been considered clinically dead.Critical care doctor and the director of resuscitation research at Stony Brook University School of Medicine, Dr. Sam Parnia's book, 'Erasing Death: The Science That is Rewriting the Boundaries Between Life and Death,' was recently featured on the Today show.
"The advances in the last 10 years have shown us that it's only after a person dies that they turn into a corpse, that their brain cells start to die," Discovery News quoted Parnia as saying.
"Although most people think this takes place in only four or five minutes, we now know that actually brain cells are viable for up to eight hours … We now understand that it's only after a person has turned into a corpse that their cells are undergoing death, and if we therefore manipulate those processes, we can restart the heart and bring a person back to life," he said.
Parnia's suggestion is not new, in fact, as researcher Jan Bondeson notes in his 2001 book 'Buried Alive: The Terrifying History of Our Most Primal Fear,' "In 1787 the French doctor Francois Thierry published a book in which he stated his conviction that most people did not die until some time after the onset of traditional signs of death."
