There are many ways that you can help to defeat aging. Aging is the largest humanitarian crisis in existence, at least in the sense of the sheer number of humans that die from it. Many individuals are either totally unaware that science and bio-medical technologies may be able to be used to reverse and defeat human aging. Other individuals are stuck in the pro-aging trance, something that Aubrey de Grey and Michael Rae talk about in the book Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime.
Currently SENS Research Foundation (SENS.org) is running a fund raising campaign in which for every dollar donated, it will be matched by another two dollars from a grant. This is being matched for up to fifty thousand dollars donated, so the total amount raised for SENS research through this fundraiser can be up to 150,000 dollars.
Additionally, you can go to Smile.Amazon.com. Amazon Smile is a program through Amazon.com for which one half of one percent on purchases on many items will be donated to the charity of your choosing. If you go to Smile.Amazon.com and log in then you will be prompted to choose which organization you would like your Amazon Smile donations to go towards. You can then select SENS Foundation. One half of one percent might not seem like a lot; however, it can potentially become a lot of money if many individuals choose to donate to SENS Research Foundation through this program.
Of course you can follow SENS Research Foundation on Twitter (@senstweet). You can follow their page on Facebook (Facebook.com/sensf). You can follow other organizations like Human Longevity Inc. (HumanLongevity.com) on Twitter (@humanlongevity). You can also follow Human Longevity Inc. on Facebook (Facebook.com/humanlongevity).
Donating to SENS Research Foundation is not the only way to help defeat aging. If you are passionate about helping to defeat this humanitarian crisis killing tens of thousands of human each day, then you can also simply help raise awareness amount individuals that you know. You can gift the book Ending Aging to others. If you haven’t already, you can purchase Ending Aging for yourself.
If you are a young adult or teen (or anyone for that matter) just entering a university or college (or going back to school), then you can choose to study topics that may enable you to one day conduct research that may help to defeat human aging. If you are not sure what to study you can contact SENS Research Foundation on their website to inquire about what might be most fruitful and productive to study.
If you are already someone with the right set of skills you can look into employment with an organization like Human Longevity Inc. or SENS Research Foundation. If you have the right types of knowledge, then you can potentially even start your own organization that is attempting to stop, reverse and defeat human aging.
Some question if it is true if it is good or desirable to try to defeat aging. For those who question if defeating aging is desirable, I offer the following. For those who suggest aging is natural and that we should not try to intervene, I reply; are all disease not natural? And if all diseases are natural and natural thing should not be tampered with, then should we not just stop trying to treat any diseases at all? However, this post is not meant to be about why we should defeat aging. That is the subject for another time. This is about how we can defeat aging. So donate to SENS Research Foundation, either directly or by utilizing Amazon Smile. Help to bring awareness to this cause and encourage others to help defeat aging; or work directly to conduct research that may one day help to defeat human aging. All of this is not meant to be an exhaustive list of how you can help. There are certainly other ways that one can help to stop, reverse and defeating aging.
