Jason Hope donates to biotechnology research team

There is ongoing research on an anti-aging drug that is being carried out by a non-profit organization known as SENS Research Foundation. This organization is based in England where they have a research center. It is headed by Aubrey de Grey, one of the passionate people about solving the root cause of old age diseases. It is a fact that as we get old, we become susceptible to old age diseases. Most old age diseases are a result of the body becoming weak and no longer able to resist diseases causing microorganisms. Jason Hope helps push anti-aging efforts forward .

Another thing is that the body cells become too worn out to carry out the normal functions effectively. Mostly old age diseases come in the form of diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. These diseases can be avoided if human beings can enjoy a long healthy life. You may be 70 years old but still very healthy. Such a milestone can only be accomplished if there is an anti-aging drug that will slow down or stop the aging process. This is what de Grey and his organization are trying to do.

Jason Hope is a philanthropist who believes in the possibility of using rejuvenation biotechnology to solve the old age diseases puzzle. Although he is not a biotechnologist, he has big hopes for the success of this research. He has been supporting this foundation to realize its objectives through funding. By funding the operations of group, Jason Hope has assisted the organization to accomplish some objectives such as building a research laboratory as well as hosting the annual conference on anti-aging diseases.

Jason gave half million dollars to the organization in 2010. These funds played a huge part in the development of the organization since it had just been set up a year earlier. Jason Hope who is self-proclaimed “futurist” looks at technological trends and supports trends which he thinks will be great in the future. The anti-aging research is one of those that he has huge hopes with.

Jason Hope is optimistic about the possibilities of biotechnology. It is likely that rejuvenation medicine will bring a solution to the problems associated with old age since people will now be able to live long healthy lives. Although it is not known whether this will cause an increase in the lifespan of human beings, this is not currently a priority in research. Jason Hope is interested in the health of the people and not how long they live.

OSI Industries early development

OSI Industries is one of the fastest growing food companies in the United States and the world in general. The company is currently in 17 countries and has 65 facilities. The story of success of food company is inspiring. It has been in operations for the last one century. In this period, it has grown from a small company into a multinational which is ensuring that there is food security in the world. OSI Industries mainly deals with the production of meat products. Most of them are pork, beef, and chicken products. The company is currently under the leadership of CEO Sheldon Lavin and President David McDonald.

The growth of this company is interesting. It is rare to find a company which is as old as OSI Food Industries still dominating in the business sector. OSI industries is an exception due to the solid management of Sheldon Lavin. He joined the company four decades ago when it started to expand its operations and has been consistent with it since then. He started the expansion program of the company, and until today, he is still advancing the dreams which he had for the food company. He is currently 87 years old and still pushing on the expansion of the company.

OSI Industries started as a butcher shop at the beginning of the 20th century. It developed gradually over the decades until m1950s when it landed the business deal which changed the storyline. In 1955, McDonald’s opened its first restaurant in Illinois. It was, in fact, the first one of its kind- typically what we see with McDonald’s restaurants today. The founder of the McDonald’s restaurant had hired OSI Food Industries, then known as Otto & Sons. As the McDonald’s expanded its operations to different parts of the United States, OSI Industries was one of the beneficiaries. The agreement they had was tagged along as the McDonald’s expanded to various parts of the globe.

OSI Food Industries is now a leading food firm in the United States because of the opportunities which were availed by the expansion of the food chain restaurants. With the expansion of the industry, there was excessive pressure on the food company to supply more food products. This is what would finally lead to the construction of food processing plants all over the United States to enhance food supply. Sheldon Lavin was brought into the company in 1975 to support the management of the two sons of the founder- Otto Kolschowsky.
