This is a news clip on Brooke Greenberg, the 16 year old girl who stopped aging and developing at eight months old and has baffled doctors world wide. Truly incredible.

Interesting, I'd be curious to know more about their experiments. Thanks for posting that.

Wow! this was astounding. The question I kept thinking was "Is it genetic?" What risk will her sisters be taking when they marry and start families? On the other hand, they will know how to cope if they do have a child who does not age.

Kudos to the parents who are giving her as normal a life as possible.

I tried for a few years to develop a breed of miniature cats - ones that would stay kitten-sized their whole life. Then someone reminded me... In the cat family, house cats ARE the miniatures. Now, if we could isolate this girl's anti-aging factor, the forever-kitty is viable.
