I too find it difficult to believe that programmed aging is 
not THE primary mechanism involved in aging.  However, a large 
body of evidence indicates that DNA damage does play a signifigant 
role in aging.

Apparently there are two problems that must be solved before we
can reach the foutain of youth.
