This is an article, and a book, for the AGEs
Garden City Park, NY: Our author Helen Vlassara, MD is finally getting proper recognition for her pioneering work with AGEs (Advanced Glycation Endproducts), and how its chemical reaction in our dry-heat prepared meals are aging us prematurely and increasing all manner of chronic disease.
A new article in South Carolina's daily paper The Post and Courier, written by three-time Pulitzer finalist series editor Tony Bartelme, has rightfully positioned Dr. Vlassara as the go-to expert on this topic.
Her book Dr. Vlassara's AGE-less Diet ($16.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0420-9), co-written along with Vlassara by fellow medical doctor (and her husband) Gary E. Striker, MD and bestselling cookbook author Sandra Woodruff, MS, RD, is now the #1 book in the "Antioxidants and Phytochemicals" category on Amazon, and has charted at #25 in "Weight Loss Books" as well.
Alongside this major new article, which has also triggered off strong book sales in the UK and various other points across Europe, the paper has also provided a fun and informative sidebar article titled "9 Easy Ways to Eat Fewer AGEs: A Stress-Free Guide." This playful but serious-as-a-heart-attack list yields further very important stuff about what we eat and what it can do to us.
In addition to Dr. Vlassara's AGE-less Diet, those who want to further incorporate AGEs-minded thinking into their daily lives can pick up the handy-dandy mass market-sized companion volume The AGE Food Guide ($8.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0429-2) as well.
