    Girl frozen in time may hold key to ageing

    American scientists are keenly studying the DNA of a 17-year-old girl who still has the body and behaviour of a baby

    Scientists are hoping to gain new insights into the mysteries of ageing by sequencing the genome of a 17-year-old girl who has the body and behaviour of a tiny toddler.
    Brooke Greenberg is old enough to drive a car and next year will be old enough to vote — but at 16lb in weight and just 30in tall, she is still the size of a one-year-old.
    Until recently she had been regarded as a medical oddity but a preliminary study of her DNA has suggested her failure to grow could be linked to defects in the genes that make the rest of humanity grow old.
    If confirmed, the research could give scientists a fresh understanding of ageing and even suggest new therapies for diseases linked to old age.

    Feel this might not stay in world News for too long.

    interesting... and an insight into how idiotic the human race really is.

    Humans messing with human nature...

    Normally doesn't end well.

    Yep, wasn't too sure myself but it is from a newspaper and it is scientific news isn't it ?

    Just seen DD's World news thread about women eating their placentas so if I can use that as a benchmark might be able to avoid MKP.

    I can't think what would be worse; living forever or seeing people who are evil and worthless living forever. Death is the only form of justice left in this World.

    True. Just as well that when humans finally master such ideals that it will be the extremely rich and powerful in for first dabs.

    there really is little doubt that humans will be the masters of their own extermination.
