OK, I have finally finished the Nature article about p66.  I have one
question.  The mice that lived longer had higher resistance to
apotosis than controls.  Is apotosis thus something to be prevented?
I think I am kind of confused because of previous comments by Aubrey
(sorry Aubrey don't mean to bother you).  I don't remember exactly
what he said, but it was something about how apotosis was helpful for
the body to repair damaged cells....I think....Anyways, does this
article prove that apotosis is something that should be focused on as
something to be prevented in order to increase life span?
