Jason Hope Donates Big to Medical Research
Jason Hope, the noted Arizona entrepreneur and futurist, has recently made a large donation to The SENS Foundation. the donation of $500,000 will be used in the quest to find the cure for atherosclerosis. The SENS Foundation has stated the donation will fund an entire year’s salary for at least four full-time researchers.
Jason Hope has long taking a keen interest in the research of atherosclerosis. Always abreast of the latest trends in medical research, Hope realized a few years ago that finding the underlying causes of atherosclerosis may aid in the treatment of chronic degenerative diseases associated with aging. Things such as heart disease, glaucoma, wrinkled skin and even arthritis, it is now believed, may all share a common etiology with atherosclerosis and learn more about Jason.
This disease has its origins in small insults to the wall of blood vessels located throughout the body. When fatty deposits it here to the walls of the vessels, they obstruct the free flow of blood causing the body to recognize the deposit as an injury. This sets off a cascade of inflammatory responses culminating in the placement of a fibrinous cap over the top of the fatty deposits. This is the process that ultimately leads to heart disease and stroke, two of the largest killers in the United States today and read full article.
Hope feels through understanding these processes on a deeper level, modern medicine will be able to delay or even completely eliminate some of the most devastating diseases associated with the natural aging process. Ultimately, this could lead to a real-world Fountain of Youth.
