How Mother Nature Will Make Us Literally SuperHuman w/ Ira Pastor of BioQuark

“I believe we will see… within the next 5-10 years… the reversal of the state of brain death – the main reason that 65 million of us leave this world every year.”
— Ira Pastor

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Ira Pastor. He is the CEO of BioQuark, and he has over 30 years of experience across multiple sectors in the pharmaceutical industry, working on biological solutions, managed care, OTC’s, and more. He’s served as the V.P. of business development for a drug development company. He’s raised tons of money for different companies, and today he’s working, as I said, at BioQuark, which is a company doing really really interesting things with biologic solutions to many of our health problems.

I wanted to talk to Ira to understand what research is being done today to make us literally superhuman: to help us live forever, get rid of diseases, and so on.

I learned a lot about just the types of research that are being done, and ultimately, I found it super interesting just the reverence and respect that Ira has for Mother Nature as an innovator and as a way for developing solutions to problems.

It’s a great episode. I’m sure you guys are going to enjoy it very very much!
