I couln't tell, are you quoting someone or is this your own statement?
To me, this is quite a big deal if true. Do you have any references?

If you like, I'd be happy to mail you copies of T. Parr's papers in

process of getting A. Cerami's "Glucose as a mediator of ageing" as well

Keep up the good work,
