  • Reviews the formation and biological role of AGEs in vitro and experimental animal studies
  • Covers different aspects of dietary AGEs in relation to human nutrition
  • Discusses how dietary AGEs play a significant role in ageing and many chronic illnesses, most prominently diabetes mellitus
  • Takes take a global approach by considering issues not only in the USA, but also in Europe and other areas of the world


Of the many dietary factors associated with inflammation and oxidative stress, a specific group are food-derived pro-inflammatory and pro-oxidant compounds, so-called advanced glycation end products (AGEs). While AGEs have been recognized as factors in the pathogenesis of diabetic complications, the importance of AGEs of dietary origin as a factor in human disease is of more recent concern. This book presents data from the past two decades on the role of AGEs in causing chronic disease. It starts by defining the compounds passing through all the clinical diseases that have been associated with them and finishes by offering different therapeutic options to deal with the problem.
