Scientists find genetic link between cancer and premature aging

.... Werner syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that develops when the WRN gene is missing or defective. The disease causes the onset of premature aging shortly after puberty and results in the appearance of old age when patients are 30 to 40 years of age. The syndrome is thought to occur because mutations in W...
