Do you guys know what the "Grim reaper" gene(don't know the scientific name)is. it's what controlles our aging process. scientists have predicted that we will live to about 380 years before we die if we can turn it off... i don't know if that is a good thing but what ever... they have already tested it on rats (which share this gene with us)...just thought i would post seing how i have been away from my computer lately... other than prolonging life it has another good use, it could be used to target certain cells that are harmful to the body(cancer and what not). pretty amazing huh. they have known about this since 2004 though, so i don't know if this is old news to you guys or not.(please if there is any, don't pick on my bad spelling)
