Yes, I searched all over for specifics on aminoguanidine toxicity, which is
mentioned here and there, but no one ever tells you any details. Sure would
be helpful, as I've been using it for a couple of months. Not dead yet...

Also, what about supplies of ALT-711 - dimethyl-3-phenacylthiazolium
chloride, which is the drug that was reported in Sci. American - July, 2000,
as well as elsewhere to be capable of directly reversing AGEs. According to
the SciAm article, page 16, three weeks of ALT-711 therapy on old dogs and
elderly rhesus monkeys "yielded spectacular results."

Unfortunately, the article goes on to state that it will be at least ten
years before it is approved for humans.
