What if human aging could be slowed down? Moreover, what if it could be reversed? What benefits would this accrue to the human health? Jason Hope, the Scottsdale entrepreneur, and philanthropist believes that this should be the direction our medical approach be heading. Looking at today’s medical procedures, it is much easier to figure out that they are more focused on treating symptoms rather than preventing the occurrence of the disease. These traditional therapeutic approaches have but one major fault –there is not much you can do to prevent illnesses that are associated with aging. No matter how good and healthy of a lifestyle you live, the aging-associated ailments will catch you soon or later.
Jason Hope hopes and believes that the key to combating age-associated diseases is dealing with aging itself. He believes that by slowing down the aging process, the cells in the human body will be able to maintain their optimal condition for an extended period. In addition to that, reversing the aging process means that the cells that had diminished can be restored to their optimal state. This way, the age-associated ailments can be combated from a cellular level rather than the traditional medical treatment approach. Through this method, diseases like high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes and Alzheimer’s can be prevented from occurring rather than managed after taking roots.
The health benefits of Jason’s anti-aging approach
By fighting aging, Jason Hope says that everyone worldwide will be able to live healthy lives for longer. This will not just be about health. People can also be able to do activities they did in their prime even at their old age. Furthermore, the life expectancy will increase, and grandparents can have an opportunity to see their great grandchildren grow.
The SENS Foundation
In his effort to push research in the anti-aging field, Jason Hope has been making donations to SENs Foundation since the year 2010. He philanthropically donated $500,000 to this foundation in the first year of his contribution. This foundation is headed by Aubrey de Grey, a scientist who has dedicated his life to finding a solution to the aging plight. Apart from doing in-house research, this foundation also assists educational institutions in conducting research in this field by providing resources. These educational institutions include Yale, University of Arizona and Harvard. Thanks to Jason and his continued philanthropic contributions to this field, there has been a lot of positive progress in the last few years.
