AGE Awareness Day wasn’t launched on June 21 by accident. The AGE Foundation specifically chose that day because it is the summer solstice – the longest day of the year. It symbolizes how properly managing your AGEs can help you live a longer, healthier life.

Today is a very important day for the AGE Foundation, as it’s the second annual AGE Awareness Day. This global event was started last year by the AGE Foundation because of the lack of public awareness regarding advanced glycation end-products.
These harmful compounds lead to premature aging, and have been linked to nearly every single serious health issue that we suffer from today. Our AGE levels are every bit as important as the other major medical markers (blood pressure, body mass index and cholesterol), but while scientific research of AGEs has steadily increased over time, public knowledge hasn’t been close to where it needs to be at.
June 21 will mark the second annual AGE Awareness Day, which was started by the AGE Foundation to bring attention to the serious health issue that is advanced glycation end-products. This is not a regional event, but rather a global one.
So, it’s quite appropriate that media outlets across the world have been focusing on AGEs. In recent months alone, AGEs have been covered by media outlets in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, China, Japan, Sweden, Denmark, Pakistan, India, Egypt, Bermuda, Australia, South Africa, the Netherlands, Romania, Lithuania, and more.

Beginning today, on AGE Awareness Day, one of the most innovative research technologies is taking the technological world by storm. AGE scanning research, a cutting-edge technology to help determine AGE levels in the body, will be one of the featured discussion topics at this week’s American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions in Chicago, Illinois June 21-25.
When it comes to health, many people are aware of the major dos and don’ts of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and diet. However, they tend to only focus on their cholesterol, blood pressure, and body mass index (BMI), and overlook another key medical marker: Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs). If ignored, AGEs can lead to significant damage to an individual’s health over time.
