Vaccines Poised to Fight Chronic Disease – Lou Reese – #641
By: Dave Asprey
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a chief … officer. (That’s not a typo—and I love it.)
I talked with Lou Reese at the recent XPrize Visioneering conference. He loves all things vision and believes in creating environments in which we can reach our potential to be disruptive originals. He’s one of the co-founders of United Neuroscience and a member of its board of directors. The company is a global team united against chronic disease with leaders in neurology, immunology, drug development at the helm. United Neuroscience is passionate about democratizing health and delivering science-driven innovation that is accessible for all.
Lou’s work focuses on hacking the immune system. It’s critical work.
In 2018—for the first time in human history—“what killed us was things that our body made inside rather than things that were harmful coming from outside,” Lou explains. “The exogenous is no longer the primary enemy, the endogenous is the primary enemy.” Specifically, chronic illness is now our No. 1 killer.
Listen on to learn about the ground-breaking solutions Lou and his team are developing.
Enjoy the show!
