Research Highlights

Featured Researcher

Dr. David Turner

Do you know what AGEs are? Dr. David Turner talks at the TEDx Charleston on how the Western diet has increased levels of AGEs in our bodies. AGEs accumulate in the body as we grow older, which damage our tissues and organs and contributes to chronic diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, cancer and others.
