Heh, yeah, unfortunatly the laws of biology dont work that way.  You see, after you are no longer in an embryonic state, your body stops producing telomerase, which is necissary to halt the cell death process.  You see, everytime your chromosomes in your body go under mitosis and divide, they are slightly cut shorter during the process.  The telomerase acts as an enzyme which cuts fills in the space of the telomers formed during this process, so that the DNA can be replicated in full.  If you dont produce it, you loose that small portion.

SO, this means every chromosome in your body has a shelf life.  Once the chromosome no longer contains enough information you need in your DNA, the cell dies through apoptosis.  The chromosomes are in a sense biologically designed to die.  We are biologically assigned to age and die.

Unless you found a way to reactivate those telomerase enzymes, I'm afraid your old.

Yup, is very fun.  I got to work with ethidium bromide yesterday in my class (mutagen) while staining my DNA gels.  I was the only one in class that volunteered to help the teacher use it.  I figured I'm going to have to get  used to the stuff if I want to get into the field, so have to start somewhere.  I must say, it certainly makes you 10X more focused on what you are doing if you know that you will get cancer if it splashes on you.
