HEADLINE: Whether human growth hormone is a fountain of youth for older Americans

 

ANCHORS: DAN RATHER

 

REPORTERS: Dr. MALLIKA MARSHALL

DAN RATHER, anchor:

 

We end tonight with news of the never-ending search for a fountain of youth. Some older people now think they have found it in an expensive hormone that's mostly meant to help children grow. CBS News contributing correspondent Dr. Mallika Marshall has the story in tonight's Eye on America.

 

Dr. MALLIKA MARSHALL reporting:

 

At the age of 65, Gene Avrett took up tennis.

 

You're 70 years old now.

 

Mr. GENE AVRETT (Growth Hormone Patient): Yes.

 

MARSHALL: How do you feel?

 

Mr. AVRETT: Well, I'm functioning at the level that I was in my 50s.

 

MARSHALL: Avrett, an astrophysicist at Harvard, believes his newfound energy comes from this bottle of synthetically created human growth hormone.

 

Do you think that this could possibly be the fountain of youth?
