FRINGE IS REAL!! MUST READ!

Hello,


The ideas of Fringe are said to be "pseudo science". The term "pseudo" means fake for those of you who are novices in English language. The ideas and stories are not fake. yes, that's right, THEY ARE NOTE FAKE. They are over exaggerated though. The "Rapid Growth" that made the baby 80 or somewhat years old withing 30 mins, is real. But, as I said it is exaggerated. Something like this happened in a city of Bihar in India. I am not 100% sure if it was in Bihar, but it was in India. What happened was, a pergenent women gave birth to 5 babies. The babies were not normal. They were 3 years old age. Their head were as big as 3 year old babies. 2 of the babies died, and 3 are still among us. Other stuff is still to come.............................................. .........

To say 'Fringe is real' is far from the truth... from the four episodes that have been released, one event could possibly be based on fact. The other three episodes are complete fiction.
In the case mentioned, the circumstances given in the show are nowhere close to any true accelerated aging disease. There is still quite heated debate among the scientific community as to whether accelerated aging exists. Most accelerated aging diseases create severe disabilities in the patient, in the case of the quintuplets it was extreme deformities and respiratory problems.
Notwithstanding that, the show is very good. Something like a cross between eureka and alias.

Wassup Sceptic good comment
Babies born with big heads isn't the same thing as rapid aging is it?
Anyway Fringe is a great show, being a bit of a science geek I thought that the show would be rubbish. But I've been pleasantly suprised by it.
My favorite scene so far was when they used Occam's razor to postulate that someone had psychic abilities.(classic)

When I was young, there was a girl born on my street that had one of these diseases. When I was about 18, she was probably 10 years old. It was incredibly strange to see a person that looked about 70 years old playing on a skateboard or playing with another 10 year old. It's probably one of the most frightening afflictions out there.

I believe some of you are referring to something like progeria, a disease caused by defects in genes that code for proteins (laminins I believe) used to maintain nuclear membrane integrity in cells. For example, one of the factors in diseases like this such as muscular dystrophy (pardon my spelling, I'm not a doctor) is the inability to keep the nucleus of the cell intact. Thus, when the individual is stressed, the cells become damaged. This would result in loss of muscle mass, or in the case of progeria, the afflicted would have the appearance of an individual much older despite having the frame of a child. This isn't really like the Fringe episode where the person ages very fast and grows in size accordingly. Something like that would take serious biochemical fueling, and people don't just grow like that without eating. But let's face it, not everyone is going to understand all of that, so it's not surprising for a show to exaggerate things quite a bit. While some of the concepts in the show may be based upon real events, I don't think making this show realistic was at the top of the producers' agenda.
