Health has long been one of humanity’s biggest interests. In the past, people were busy finding food to live on, but now as society has become more plentiful, interest in health has grown. With the growing lifespan and aging society brought on by advancements in medicine, maintaining one’s health has become a big issue and the healthcare market has grown with it. Many healthcare related startups have newly been established and the stocks for these companies have continually been valued at a high valuation.
