Can it be true? Have scientists really discovered the secret to endless youth? Noble Prize-winning Australian scientist Professor Elizabeth Blackburn says the answer is yes. Through Professor Blackburn's work, science now knows the power of the enzyme telomerase, a chemical which can keep cells young - forever. But there's a catch: the same enzyme that fuels life, also fuels cancer. Broadcast as part of SBS's Secrets Of The Human Body series.
