Life without Cancer or Diabetes

Laron syndrome is a genetic disease that causes dwarfism but also proects the body from diabetes and from nearly all forms of cancer.

A medical goal is to understand this process and find a way to replicate it in normal adults so that they will live longer yet without diseases associated with gerontology, cancer or diabetes as they age.

A doctor from USC is studying a population with Laron syndrome in Loja, Ecuador.
