An on going experiment conducted by Harvard University has developed an enzime that reverses the aging process in lab mice.
Doctor Ronald DePinho's study may change the entire aging process worldwide, as well as the mind set for humans in regards to life's perspective as a whole.
Telomerase is an enzime that heals the telomeres. At the ends of chromosome s, these telomeres grow smaller with age and eventually fall off, the end result is the aging process in biological entities.
DePinho was amazed when the study revealed that this enzyme reversed the aging process, rather than just slowing it down.
The doctor anticipates telomerase will be available to humans in the future and if taken in the 40's and 50's could bring the aged back to a youthful appearance. In the process fending off diseases associated with advanced age.
The implications of such a drug are far and wide in it's implications for humanity as a whole.
If you think about it, say you took the drug for a long enough period, would you have to crawl back in where you came out.
By the way, this story is real. It spoofed itself.

I don't believe one grows older. I think that what happens early on in life is that at a certain age one stands still and stagnates.
