Harvard University uncovers DNA switch for whole-body regeneration

Researchers from Harvard University have published a study that reveals their discovery of numerous DNA switches that govern whole-body regeneration in panther worms. The gene identified, called early growth response (EGR), acts as a power switch that turns various biological processes on and off, including regeneration. Whole-body regeneration is unique to animals like jellyfish, sea anemones.

200 years ago there were less than one billion humans living on earth. Between 1900 and 2000, the increase in world population was three times greater than during the entire previous history of humanity—an increase from 1.5 to 6.1 billion in just 100 years. Given the rate of population growth there wil not be resources for everyone if we don''t die. Not enough real estate, not enough food. Given the rate of polution we generate at the moment, not enough clean air or potable water.

But what about mutations and cancer? If I remember correctly human cells have an average of 57 time that it can go through mitosis before having a possibility to becoming cancerous.
