Researchers discovered that one of the components to aging is called glucosepane that is found in human tissue. Researchers are creating therapies that will remove glucosepane from the body. If the researchers can target the genes and substances that cause aging, they can prevent the aging illnesses from ever happening.
As a futurist, Jason Hope is looking at exhaust emissions that tend to cause many lung related diseases such as Emphysema and lung cancer. He also interested in the accuracy of the data found on the internet. Are the exhaust emissions really as low as it is claimed on the internet?
