Jason Hope donated 500,000 dollars to SNES a foundation dedicated to stopping anti-aging. SNES works to give the public access to technology to help counter aging and prevent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, and Osteoporosis. In a statement Jason Hope made about why he was so passionate about SNES, he said, ” Foundations like SNES are taking a different approach to anti-aging They are focused on finding cures for diseases that break down the body causing us to age faster than we should”
SNES is going to use the money that Jason Hope donated to learn how to break down unwanted molecular bonds. These bonds are a cause of many problems the elderly face such as Arteriosclerosis the hardening of arteries, long-sightedness, and skin aging.
