Geron Corporation, Menlo Park, California, have discovered that virtually 
all human tumors contain a unique enzyme that blocks the biological
clocks of the tumor cells.

What if a similar enzyme were introduced into normal human cells so that
their DNA doesn't deteriorate when the normal cells divide?

Wouldn't this be an immortal creature? And what would be the implications
of such a discovery?
