Most people do not like to grow old or they truly want to age gracefully. The problem with growing older has to do with reduced physical performance, a decrease in physical appearance and being susceptible to various conditions caused by aging. All of these issues impact a person’s health and well being as they mature.
Also, the natural metabolic processes that all people have begin to slow down as they age. In other words, the longer a person lives the less energy they will have, they will lose the use of their organs and systems and they will require a lot more sleep. Many people accept the fact that old age is just a natural part of life. However, there are some people who refuse to let age in the way of living.
One such person is named Jason Hope. He is a futurist with a knack for predicting the upcoming use of technology for businesses. Hope is an entrepreneur and a philanthropist. He loves to give to charitable organizations. In the past he has given to the T Gen Foundation and to Teach for America Phoenix. He has even given donations to The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation. Hope is an outstanding donor who makes it a point to support causes that incites his passion.
In 2010, Jason Hope made a huge $500,000 donation to the SENS Foundation. This organization works in the field of regenerative medical research. SENS Foundation tries to find solutions to problems related to age and diseases. This organization is doing research in the area of glucospane reduction.
In case you didn’t know, glucospane is a waste material that builds up in a person’s cells over time. This substance plays a critical role in the aging process. Glucospane works against the body by degrading the cells. This one reason why people have saggy and wrinkly skin. This waste product is also responsible for causing many of the diseases and conditions that people experience when they grow older.
Jason Hope realizes that no one can completely stop the aging process. However, the right type of medicine can slow it down a lot. Researchers at SENS are working hard to figure out how to perform this process. SENS is performing work in various areas of cellular function and repair. They are getting closer everyday to figuring out a solution.
