It’s been 10 years since Perricones first book, The Wrinkle Cure, which introduced his theory that inflammation is at the root of aging and age-related disease. Perricone used diabetes as an inflammatory model to understand its role in the production of free radicals that lead to glycation and inflammation. This helped lead him to is Inflammation Theory of Aging.
In Forever Young, Dr. Perricone discusses another accelerated aging model: an acute, severe, systemic infection known as sepsis.
Why sepsis? Sepsis leads to disorders that take place on a cellular level and closely resembles, in an abbreviated period of time, what happens to the body as it ages over a longer period of time. So from his findings, which Perricone reveals in the book, he was able to develop a diet comprised of certain nutrients that can turn on the genes that block disease and turn off the genes that cause accelerated aging, weight gain and disease.
