Overview

In this revolutionary book, bestselling author and anti-aging expert Dr. Nicholas Perricone reveals a completely new and hidden threat to our looks and our health–and gives us a program to defeat it.

Dr. Nicholas Perricone has gotten to the bottom of accelerated aging with the discovery of AGEs (Advanced Glycation End Products). AGEs are at least as detrimental to our health as transfats but have been largely unknown outside the medical community. AGEs give us wrinkles, but they have also been implicated in serious age-related conditions that cut across all medical specialties, from Alzheimer’s and cataracts to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. Yet we have not had strategic interventions for stopping and reversing the effects of AGEs until now.

Dr. Perricone shows us how to win the fight against AGEs with a three-part plan of attack that includes a nutritional program, targeted supplements, and new topicals. His groundbreaking program helps to

• erase wrinkles and firm sagging skin
• reverse age-related memory loss
• heal cardiovascular disease
• stop precursors of cancer
• prevent symptoms of diabetes

Ageless Face, Ageless Mind brings us not only a new and exciting field of research and its remarkable discoveries, but also a way to fight one of the biggest hidden threats to our immediate and long-term health.

Biography

Nicholas Perricone, M.D., FACN, is a board certified clinical and research dermatologist. A brilliant scholar, Dr. Perricone completed medical school in just 2 1/2 years, graduating at the head of his class. He completed his internship in pediatrics at Yale Medical School and his dermatology residency at Ford Medical Center. Dr. Perricone is regarded as the father of the inflammation theory of aging. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Wrinkle Cure (Rodale Reach, May 2000). Warner Books published the trade paper edition in May of 2001. It reached No. 1 on both the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times bestseller lists on March 24, 2002, and remained there for four weeks. Close to one million copies are in print. His PBS-TV special of the same name is one of the top fundraisers for public television.

Dr. Perricone is certified by the American Board of Dermatology, is a fellow of the New York Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He is also a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and the Society of Investigative Dermatology. He is the recipient of the 2002 Eli Whitney Award, awarded annually to an outstanding individual for significant contribution to science.

Prior recipients include National Medal of Science recipient, Igor Sikorsky, (founder of Sikorsky aircraft) inventor of the first practical helicopter, which established the bedrock upon which today's helicopter industry rests, and Buckminster Fuller, inventor of the geodesic dome -- the lightest, strongest, and most cost-effective structure ever devised.

Dr. Perricone holds dozens of U.S. and international patents for the treatment of skin and systemic disease, and for the use of topical anti-inflammatories for reversing and preventing damage to skin caused by age, the sun, the environment, hormonal changes, etc. He is the author of numerous scientific articles documenting the results of his research and is a contributing editor to the peer-reviewed medical journal Skin and Aging and is a member of the editorial board of Archives of Gerontology & Geriatrics. He is chairman of the International Symposium on Aging Skin, an annual meeting in which researchers come together from around the world to share their latest scientific breakthroughs in the prevention of aging and aging skin.

Vogue magazine has named Dr. Perricone one of the top four dermatologists in the United States.

His book The Perricone Prescription, A Physician's 28-Day Program for Total Body and Face Rejuvenation, was published by HarperCollins to coincide with the premiere of his second television special for PBS-TV, the leading national educational television network, in September 2002.

    Total Skin Health Explained

    What I love about this book is the fact that it explains clearly how I can be both healthy and have great skin. Most self help books tells you how but Dr. Perricone lets me know why and how. It lets me make my own decision!

    I am in Control!

    It is great to be in control of my health and skin! I always knew eating right is important but had a problem just getting the information in one place without feeling like being sold a used car! I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to begin a healthy body and skin care regimen.
