For the longest time, human beings have viewed aging as a natural phenomenon that no human being can avoid. It is a natural process that will catch up with us despite how well we eat or how healthy we look right now. At some point, we will no longer be able to do the things we used to do while we were young. This is the sad reality of life. Old age comes with challenges that unless we stay focused on solving them will be part of the human generation forever. As we get old, we develop old age diseases such as Alzheimer’s which end up messing with the lives of human being. At a time when one is supposed to be enjoying the fruits of the years spent working, old age diseases start trickling in and taking all the happiness of the retirement age.
The fact that old age diseases have been a major problem for generations does not mean that there is no hope of eradicating them. According to philanthropist Jason Hope, there is hope that soon there will be changes that will lead to the eradication of old age diseases. From research work being done by an organization he is supporting known as SENS Research Foundation, there is a high likelihood that we could have a drug that will slow down or stop aging in human beings. With such a drug, we are looking at the possibility of having human beings who will be very energetic at the age of 80 years. Since old age diseases are brought by wear of body tissues, a strong and energetic body would no fall victim to old age diseases.
