Overview

En este libro revolucionario, el doctor Nicholas Perricone, exitoso autor y experto en la prevención del envejecimiento, revela un peligro oculto y desconocido que amenaza nuestra salud y apariencia - y propone un programa para vencerlo.

El doctor Nicholas Perricone ha llegado al fondo del envejecimiento acelerado con el descubrimiento de los Productos Finales de Glicación Avanzada (Advanced Glycosylation End Products) o AGEs. Aunque los AGEs son tan nocivos para nuestra salud como las grasas del tipo trans, se les desconoce casi por completo fuera de la comunidad médica. Los AGEs nos provocan arrugas, pero también se les ha implicado en serios padecimientos de muy diversa índole relacionados con la edad, desde el mal de Alzheimer y las cataratas hasta problemas cardiovasculares, la diabetes y el cáncer. Sin embargo, hasta ahora no habíamos contado con acciones estratégicas para detener y revertir los efectos de los AGEs.

El doctor Perricone nos muestra cómo ganar la lucha contra los AGEs con un plan tripartito de ataque que incluye un programa nutricional, suplementos dirigidos y la exploración de nuevos medicamentos tópicos. Su novedoso programa ayuda a:

· Eliminar las arrugas y reafirmar la piel flácida
· Revertir la pérdida de memoria relacionada con la edad
· Curar la enfermedad cardiovascular
· Detener los precursores del cáncer
· Prevenir los síntomas de la diabetes

Rostro sin edad, mente sin edad ofrece un nuevo y emocionante campo de investigación con notables descubrimientos, pero además, una manera de combatir una delas mayores amenazas ocultas para nuestra salud de forma inmediata y a largo plazo.

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.
