I was just watching 20/20 and on the show they had a segment about a girl named Brooke Greenberg who was 16 year old in age but had the body of a Toddler ? Wha... What The Fu#k ? How is This Possible ? And does this mean she could hold the key to the Fountain of Youth within her Genes ? Any Thoughts ?

That's not dissimilar to a condition wherein the individual ages roughly 5 faster than normal. At 10 the person is equivalent to about 30 or 40 years of age. The live expectancy is shy of 20. I wish I knew the name of the condition. The condition is called Progeria. Here's an article about a boy who has it: http://www.lex18.com/Global/story.asp?S=9157609  Brooke's condition is very extraordinary, and may eventually aid in leading to the fabled "fountain of youth".
