NEW YORK, May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- At this year's American Academy of AntiAging (A4M) conference, Glycation and AGEs (Advanced Glycation End Products) were named the leading factors in premature aging and disease. AGEs are dangerous substances that form in the blood as a result of sugar that attaches to a protein or lipid without the presence of an enzyme. And once formed, these AGEs are completely irreversible—and cause accelerated damage to the tissues and cells.

AGEs form at a constant slow rate in the normal body causing premature aging and disease over time.  However most current research reveals that their formation is even more accelerated in people with diabetes because of their sugar issues.  In fact, there is overwhelming evidence that confirms a link between AGEs and many diabetes complications including atherosclerosis, Heart Disease, retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy.

Atherosclerosis is responsible for more than forty percent of the deaths in this country and AGEs is the cause.   Today, more progressive doctors are considering anti-glycation as the best approach to stop the damaging effects of high blood sugar.  In addition to diabetes, studies have linked a high sugar intake with an increased risk of many health concerns, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and erectile dysfunction.  Now we understand that this is due to glycation.  See studies below.

Sugar consumption then and now:  In the early 1800's the average sugar consumption was about 12 pounds per person annually. Today sugar consumption is rapidly approaching 200 pounds per year for one person. Those are very shocking numbers.  

Diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions:  Approximately 26 million Americans have diabetes and an additional 79 million Americans are estimated to have pre-diabetes.   Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Pre
