The human body usually gets weak as one becomes old. The net effect is the body becomes susceptible to old age diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and Parkinson’s disease. There is nothing that can be done in such cases. The human body is weak and can no longer resist the diseases. The metabolic processes in the body are depleted so much that there is nothing that can be done to help the situation. The results of such a scenario are that the human body has remained susceptible to old age diseases. There is a lot of suffering among the people in this category, but there is nothing that can be done to alleviate their problems.
There is, however, a reprieve that is coming up shortly. There is an ongoing research work by a group called SENS Research Foundation. This is a group that is researching for a solution to the aging problem in human beings. There should be a chance for human beings to live like small animals such as tortoise and hydra which do not become weak as they get old. There is no relation between the age of a tortoise and its probability of dying. This is the opposite of human beings. As human beings approach a certain age, they become too weak even to do basic functions such as walking or eating.
SENS Research group is trying to change the scenario. They want to give hope to humanity that old age will not put them at risk of contracting old age diseases. They are trying to come up with a drug that will suppress the aging process in human beings. The human body will be able to resist aging causing substance. The body will therefore not become weak as one grows old. One will be able to live a healthy life with no worries about old age disease.
One person who has been supporting the efforts of this group is Jason Hope. He is a popular technology expert and futurist from the state of Arizona. He is one of the people who are applying their knowledge about technological advancement in helping others understand what to expect from the upcoming technology trends. Jason Hope has an MBA from the Arizona State University. He once owned a mobile technology company but sold it later at a hefty profit. Jason Hope spends time in Scottsdale Arizona mentoring children on technology.
