Dear Dr Claire

How do your baby teeth know when to fall out?

And how does your body know when to start growing and when to stop growing? And how does your body grow old? Does it just wear out? But how could it if it can repair (heal) itself, etc?

Do you think they will ever be able to stop people from dying? Is growing old really like a collection of little mistakes that gradually gets bigger and bigger until there are too many mistakes and you get sick or you just stop?

Perhaps I have begun to answer my own questions, but I'm still not sure about the teeth.

And what about puberty and does your body know to start it?

Your friend
