DON'T YOU LOVE LEAF BLOWERS? What started as a way to fix back problems in the 1980s turned into a Noise and Air Polution problem by the 90s. BUT...our speakers this week have a plan! Their business plan will take us back to the REAL garden, a place of peace and clean air. Backyard by backyard, neighborhood to neighborhood, they aspire to change the world.
Please welcome DEREK KAYE and ETHAN with WHISPR INNOVATIONS.
Stewart Lyman, Biotechnology Consultant and Vaccine Advocate
The human papilloma virus (HPV) causes six different types of cancer, affecting both men and women in growing numbers (now over 35,000 in the US. alone) each year, In 2016 Stewart was diagnosed with one of these cancers. He only underwent surgery to resolve it, unlike the many who suffer painful chemo and radiation treatments for similar cancers. For this reason he is now an advocate for a simple, easy, new vaccine treatment.
Stewart has a PhD in cancer research, was a post-doctoral fellow at the Fred Hutch, and worked at Immunex cloning new molecules that would stimulate the immune system to fight cancer. He holds 28 U.S. patents, and two of the drugs his team developed are currently in clinical trials for cancer and asthma.
