Bizarre facts-Premature aging

There is such a rare and terrible disease Progeria - premature aging at an early age.

One gene mutates and affects the whole organism. Those born with Progeria typically live about thirteen years, although many have been known to live into their late teens and early twenties and rare individuals may even reach their forties.

The disorder has a very low incidence and occurs in one per eight million live births. Here’s Leon Botha, a guy who has Progeria and who’s already 24 years old. No one knows how many years he will live. It’s not funny, but he really has this alien look.
