    I wonder how old a person with such an affliction could become.

    I doubt someone hasn't sequenced her genome yet. If the story is true, then she's a wonder of the world.

    Not growing is not the same as not ageing. People don't show signs of ageing until their mid/late teens. Give it 30 years and I'll bet she will show signs of ageing.

    From the stuff described it's not exactly what we're looking for. If she contained some kind of supercharged free-radical scavenger well.....that'd be a different matter.

    This will be a goldmine for the person who transfers this condition to dogs.

    Sounds to be a disappointment to me. That's what all of this sort of thing is.

    If she doesn't show signs of aging then its a miracle. I mean....how can she not be producing waste material? And for that matter, would an infants body even be able to handle that. Ugh...this is really weird to think about.
