What is the freezing point of the human body?

Because the human body consists of water in solution, the water will not begin to freeze until it falls below the general freezing point (32 F, 0 C). The freezing point of meat is given as -15 C by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, so it is reasonable to assume it is the same for human bodies as well.
