Flatworms could hold key to immortality...

Flatworms could hold the key to immortality, scientists claim.

British researchers believe that the worms, which live in ponds and lakes, could live forever after examining their ability to repeatedly regenerate.

Experts from Nottingham University managed to create a colony of more than 20,000 flatworms from one original by chopping it into pieces and observing each section grow into a new complete worm.

 They believe that it could help scientists develop new methods to allow humans to stay younger for longer. Full story...
