People with moles less prone to ageing

THE secret of supermodel Cindy Crawford's ageless allure may be out as British scientists have discovered that people with lots of moles are genetically protected from many of the ravages of time.

New research suggests they may not only develop fewer wrinkles in old age, but also have stronger bones and tauter muscles.

Moles or beauty spots - for which Crawford is famous - are formed by rapidly dividing cells that start producing dots of dark pigment on children as young as four, but which usually vanish from about the age of 40.

In some people, however, they continue to spread as they grow older, producing a smooth and wrinkle-free complexion that can make a woman look at least seven years younger than her real age.

Some one should let Richard Gere know about this, maybe he can switch from gerbils.

I have a Cindy Crawford mole, too. Exact same spot! A co-worker asked me why I didn't have it removed and I told him I enjoy the paparazzi associated with always being mistaken for Cindy Crawford, LOL!

That’s how it prevents aging; one dies of skin cancer before wrinkles take over.

are formed by rapidly dividing cells

Wouldn't pine too hard for this genetic trait, it's pretty easy to deduce a heightened risk of certain cancers to go along with the younger-than-your-years complexion.
