This foundation are using a different approach to anti-aging by focusing on discovering cures for diseases that tear the body down. These diseases cause the aging process to speed up more than it should. And furthermore, all functions of the body are affected by diseases, such as lung disease, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s. Traditional medicine aims to treat the disease after it happened, but Hope along with SENS are focusing on stopping diseases from ever happening.
