Found this story about a Brazilian woman who is trapped in the body of baby..

A Brazilian woman, who has neither aged, nor is getting any younger. Born on May 7, 1981, Maria Audete do Nascimento still has the body of a baby.

Experts from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ceara believe that what Maria suffers from is a severe deficiency of the thyroid hormone. As a result of hypothyroidism, her body was never able to develop physically or mentally. They also went on to say that if the case had been identified early on, Maria may have grown up as a normal child. The University has agreed to provide free treatment to Maria, to enable her to be a little more independent – to walk, eat and say a few words. But for now she is, in some ways, what every parent wishes for – a child that never grows up.

She will age, just not physically. Her heart won't beat forever. Shes not immortal.

So i wonder if her brain is that of a normal 30 year old? This makes me sad. Her having to go through her entire life screaming on the inside,wanting to communicate.

How does anyone here think she will live longer or shorter?

Body doesnt get bigger..? Less heart stress. Mind of a child? Less life stress, longer lifespan.

But i dont actually know. Anyone?

I always thought that if the cell's in your body could stay the same as a four year old child you would live for a thousand or so years, because at this age the cell's are the best in our life time's.
I will try and get more info on that for you, can't remember where I heard it.
Great find OP, Iam just glad that it seems she has a loving and caring family.

Hmm strange genetic anomaly (Check), South America (Check) could there be a conspiracy YES…

Sounds like more of Mengele's work to me...To perfect the philosophers’ stone, the spring of eternal life, the fountain of youth, to become immortal and forever young!
