What if there were a way to know what is the healthiest and unhealthiest dog food of all?
We are thrilled to share unbiased scientific research summarized in a database that will tell you what the healthiest to unhealthiest dog food is based on the presence of Advanced Glycation End Products.
Bobzilla has funded the research of Dr. David Turner, Ph.D. He is a member of the Massey Cancer Center research team at Virginia Commonwealth University, the Vice Chair of Research and Innovation of the Cancer Prevention and Control research program and founder of the Anti-A.G.E Foundation, a non-profit organization with a mission of increasing awareness about the severity of processed foods and their impact on health span and life span for humans and dogs.
His work focuses on the prevalence of A.G.E's in popular dog foods. A.G.Es, or advanced glycation end products, also referred to as glycotoxins, are harmful oxidative compounds that accumulate in tissues over time, causing stress and inflammation, and in turn, increase the risk of developing diseases like cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Dr. Turner and his tema have estimated that "dog food is about 10 times higher in A.G.Es than human food" and believes this may "reduce our canine companions quality of life and overall lifespan."
Thanks to financial support from the Bobzilla Foundation, Dr. Turner is scientifically validating these statements. He is constructing a database of A.G.E. levels in multiple types of dog foods - including kibble, wet food, homemade and fresh, which will be made publicly available on this site soon! In addition, Dr. Turner is also assessing if A.G.E.s in processed pet food can promote the same diseases in dogs that are observed in humans by A.G.E consumption.
We are thrilled to be able to share what the healthiest and unhealthiest dog food of all is based on unbiased scientific research. Stay tuned because this information will be shared very soon!
