Jason Hope explains that this new anti-aging technology is not just about individuals seeking to live forever but is more about living a longer, healthier, and more productive life.
Hope, who is known for his philanthropical passions, has pledged his support to the SENS Foundation since 2010 when he donated half a million dollars to the organization to construct a new laboratory that is located in Cambridge, England. Hope has provided the organization with more than a $1 million to the organization since to support their efforts at defeating the effects of aging.
The last two letters of the acronym SENS refers to the term ‘negligible senescence’ and describes an absence of aging symptoms. This trait has been observed in animals such as tortoises, who unlike the majority of species present on the planet do not become more likely to die due to aging.
The human species, however, has been observed to break down over time as the metabolic workings needed to survive eventually work to wear down the body and cause an increase in disease vulnerability. This is why afflictions such as Parkinson’s Disease and heart disease are referred to as being age-related.
Jason Hope and other believers in rejuvenation technology feel that the modern medical approach of treating individual diseases as they occur should be replaced with an emphasis on preventive techniques that will enable a human being to live a long, disease-free life.
Jason Hope has been joined by a number of prominent investors in assuring that the progress of SEN and other organizations continue this important work in rejuvenation biotechnologies. Read more: https://azcapitoltimes.com/news/tag/jason-hope/
