Jason Hope is an internet entrepreneur with interests across various industries. One of Jason Hope’s favorite topics and industries is the healthcare industry. Jason Hope is concerned with the approach used by many modern doctors and researchers in tackling age related diseases. According to Hope most of the research and treatment methods are reactive rather than proactive. Most researchers are not looking into ways of preventing illnesses such as diabetes and Alzheimer’s from occurring in the first place. This situation has led Jason Hope to use his considerable resources and influence to help advance anti-aging initiatives.
