We can in worms. Just one mutation can nearly double its lifetime, the only known
drawback is a slight inefficiency in food metabolism, but that may be enough
for evolution to select against it. Evolution has its opinion on what's a good gene
and I have mine, personally I don't see it as a big problem nowadays, people
are too fat anyway.
