The Expulsion from Eden

Genesis 3:22-24
22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

The fruit of this tree apparently had such healing propertied that it could actually help the body and repair genetic damage of a life time that eventually leads to death.

Ambrosia, the food of the gods in Greek mythology seems to be a result of combining the fruit of the Tree of Life and that of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Since Ambrosia is alleged to convey eternal life and god hood to the eater. The Tree of Life is the eternal life part and the Satan possessed serpent told Eve the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil would make her as a god.
