Researchers have linked diets high in glycotoxins (AGEs)to age-related dementia and obesity and diabetes in both humans and mice. A key factor in the formation of food-derived glycotoxins is temperature. Foods high in protein and fat (such as animal products like beef, pork and lamb) as well as foods high in fructose that are cooked, heated, or processed at high temperatures are loaded with glycotoxins.
