Aging is inevitable. At some point we will all grow old. However, it is not a must that we suffer from age related diseases. These diseases only accelerate the aging process and keep us from enjoying life at an old age. Naturally, the body’s metabolism wears the body down with age. This gives way to age related diseases to attack. When these diseases manifest, the person suffering from them is robbed of the joy of old age and ages faster. This explains the difference between two 90 year olds. One may look older than the other because diseases related to old age are accelerating his or her aging process.
Before the foundation of SENS, most scientific research was channelled toward curing and managing age related diseases instead of prevention. This saw many scientists come up with incredible methods on managing diseases like diabetes but none in terms of keeping it from occurring in the first place. SENS, is an organization dedicated to fighting premature aging by finding ways of preventing age related diseases. SENS’ approach in rejuvenation biotechnology is unique compared to other companies that try to do the same because; instead of coming up with products that slow down the aging process, they come up with ways to fight diseases that accelerate the process. This way they promote healthy aging.
