(which are anti-inflammatory fatty acids that
come from fatty acids and fish oil supple-
ments) are connected to a 71% increase in
the risk for high-grade prostate cancer.
Additionally, the study found a 44% increase
in the risk of low-grade prostate cancer, and
a 43% increase in risk for all kinds of prostate
cancers. But what the researchers did not
account for is the known risk factors of
prostate cancer:
- PSA level
- DRE (digital rectal exam)
- Age
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Race
These known risk factors were not consid-
erations in the study, which could heavily
affect the findings. Also, the study did not say
when the men started taking fish oils, before
or after they were diagnosed with prostate
An interesting aspect of this study is that is
found that omega-6 fatty acids were associat-
ed with a lower risk of prostate cancer, which
is in conflict with most other studies. Most
other research has found excessive omega-6
fatty acids to contribute to the risk of prostate
cancer. Also interesting is that the study
group published a paper in 2011 stating that
unhealthy trans fatty acids (found in mar-
garine and known to increase risk of heart
disease) were associated with decreasing the
risk of aggressive prostate cancer. These
researchers are going against mountains of
well-researched evidence against trans fat,
omega-6 and omega-3.

A “Must-Read” Book on Fish
Oil, EPA&DHA and Your Health
This is an excellent book, and I recommend it
highly. It explains what fish oil, or omega-3’s
are all about, what they are, what they do,
and why they are so important to various
health conditions.
I am going to reprint the forward, by Dr
Harris, so that you have some idea of why
this is such an important book. And, because
of the recent interest (see previous article) on
fish oil and prostate cancer, I am also going to
reprint part of the chapter on cancer.
Details on the pricing and availability of the
book will follow the forward.
Don Goldberg
primary discoverer of the role of fish oil in
preventing heart disease and of how the
nutrients in fish oils are essential to optimal
health. Until now, Dr. Dyerberg has pub-
lished this information only in technical arti-
cles that don't reach the majority of people.
Thankfully, the well-respected health writer
and antioxidant researcher Richard
Passwater, Ph.D., (who wrote the very first
book on fish oil and preventing heart disease)
has now coaxed the fascinating story out of
the modest, unassuming Dr. Dyerberg.
Dr. Passwater, who first learned of Dr.
Dyerberg's seminal research in 1981, has
published two books on fish oil (in 1982 and
1987), but many more exciting health bene-
fits have been discovered since then. As the
two colleagues shared information, Dr.
Passwater convinced Dr. Dyerberg to tell his
story for the benefit of all readers, not just
the scientific community. This is not boasting
or bragging; it is Simply recounting the his-
toric series of observations and scientific dis-
coveries that even Dr. Dyerberg could not
imagine would have ensued from his explo-
rations along the frozen coastline of
Greenland over four decades ago. His initial
findings ultimately resulted in new insights
that are now saving lives every day.
I am personally indebted to the pioneering
research of Dr. Dyerberg for shaping my pro-
fessional career. Back in 1979, when I was a
postdoctoral fellow at the Oregon Health
Sciences University (Portland), I worked in
the lab of Dr. William Connor, a giant in the
study of nutrition, lipids, and heart disease.
My assignment was to design and carry out a
study on the effects on blood cholesterol lev-
els of a diet very high in salmon oil (about
100 grams per day!). We were unaware at
that time of the work of Drs. Dyerberg and

Chinese Red Ginseng
Chinese Red Ginseng
Ginseng is the premier adaptogenic, immune-modulating herb.
Chinese Red Ginseng (Panax ginseng) is more “stimulating” or
warming than American Ginseng.
Who would benefit from this supplement? Those suffering from
fatigue, burn-out, frequent illness, depression. Red Chinese Ginseng
is thought to increase vigor, energy, vitality and resistance to illness
and environmental or external stress. It is often the preferred adap-
togenic herb for the elderly.
Supplemental Information:
Phyto-Tech? Chinese Red Ginseng increases vigor, energy, vitality
and resistance to illness and environmental stresses. It is best for
those who are depleted and are low on passion in life. It is also
indicted for those working too hard and are afraid of burn out. Red
Chinese Ginseng will increase the stress hormone ACTH from the
pituitary that helps the body adapt to stress. When stress is initiating
the breakdown on one’s innate weakness (genetic, constitutional,
predispositional tendencies), Red Chinese Ginseng will help the
body to cope and therefore assist in many chronic diseases, especial-
ly if debilitating and wasting.
Phyto-Tech? Chinese Red Ginseng is not for those in their prime
of life who are full of fire, the Type-A personality. It is for those who
used to be that way and are now not what they used to be. It helps
in the aging process to stay alert, youthful, energetic and adaptive to
environmental changes. It is immunomodulating and keeps the
immune system firing on all levels.
Phyto-Tech? Chinese Red Ginseng is a tonic for the 21st century
with the fast paced life style that creates accelerated wear and tear.
It gives more mileage to the body.
Phyto-Tech? Chinese Red Ginseng should be considered for
depression in the elderly who might not be chemically depressed in
a St. John’s Wort way (serotonin), but need some energy to process
life with more passion and enjoyment. It is synergistic with Ginkgo
for the elderly.
Phyto-Tech? Chinese Red Ginseng is a more yang or warming and
stimulating ginseng than the American. Eleuthero Root (sometimes
referred to as Siberian Ginseng) is not a true Ginseng and is consid-
ered neutral, not warming or cooling.
Phyto-Tech? Chinese Red Ginseng contains 333 mg of imported
Chinese Red Ginseng per 30 drops.
Dosage: 15-45 drops, 2-3 times per day It is best used as a long
term tonic (1-3 months and longer).

Chlorophyll Extract
Chlorophyll Extract
Often considered the “blood” of plants, chlorophyll is structurally
similar to hemoglobin. It has a protective and detoxifcation
Who would benefit from this supplement? Those with heavy metal
toxicity and those looking for cleansing and detoxification properties.
Those with bad breath and body odor. Those suffering from fatigue
and those with slow healing wounds.
Phyto-Tech? Chlorophyll provides 100 mg Chlorophyll, from
Mulberry leaf, per 30 drops.
Dosage: 15-30 drops in water or juice, 1-2 time daily, or as need-
Supplemental Information:
Chlorophyll is the sunlight collecting molecule in plants that gives
them their green pigment. Plants use chlorophyll to collect light
needed for photosynthesis. Through photosynthesis Chlorophyll mol-
ecules have the ability to convert solar energy into chemical energy
by manufacturing carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water.
Chlorophyll is often referred to as the “blood” of plants.
Interestingly, Chlorophyll molecules are structurally very similar to
human hemoglobin molecules. The difference between the two
being that Chlorophyll carries Magnesium at its center and hemoglo-
bin carries iron at its center. Like iron, Chlorophyll helps the body
build red blood cells and thus increases oxygen availability. It ener-
gizes and revitalizes the body and is helpful for fatigue, shortness of
breath, asthma, altitude sickness and intense physical exertion.
Chlorophyll acts as an internal deodorizer and is helpful for people
with halitosis (bad breath) and body odor. It can be used as an aid to
reduce digestive tract odor from a colostomy or ileostomy and also
fecal odor caused by incontinence. It can also help for foul smelling
gas. Chlorophyll cleanses and nourishes the intestinal tract and is
healing to the mucosal lining. It can also be helpful for constipation.
Chorophyll is an excellent whole body cleanser. It not only detoxi-
fies the digestive tract, but also facilitates cleansing of the blood and
liver and assists in the chelation of heavy metals. It is capable of neu-
tralizing harmful oxidants and may reduce oxidative damage from
certain carcinogens. It also has the ability to form tight molecular
complexes with carcinogens and in doing so blocks the body’s
absorption of them. In a placebo controlled study conducted in
China Chlorophyll supplementation was found to decrease DNA
damage caused by aflatoxin, a liver carcinogen produced by fungus
in moldy grains and legumes. Scientists hope that in populations
with unavoidable dietary aflatoxin exposure Chlorophyll supplemen-
tation could significantly reduce the risk of developing liver cancer.

Cinnamon Bark 40
Cinnamon Bark 40
This is a standardized Cinnamon Bark complex in a liquid filled
veggie cap.
Historically, Cinnamon has been used for various gastrointestinal
problems. More recently, interest has centered on the research
showing that Cinnamon can help normalize blood sugar control.
This is of major interest to those with type 2 diabetes.
Who would benefit from this supplement? Those with blood sugar
regulation problems, including type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, and
cholesterol related conditions.
Each two liquid filled veggie caps contain 250 mg of Cinnamon
Bark (alcohol extract), 75 mg of Cinnamon Bark (supercritical carbon
dioxide extract, standardized ro 40 mg Cinnamaldehydes.
According to Natural Standard Integrative Medicine database,
“Cinnamon may be used for various medical conditions (77;?78). In
a survey of parents in Germany determining the use of complemen-
tary and alternative medicines in children with type 1 diabetes in
four pediatric diabetes centers (located in Leipzig, Berlin, Stuttgart,
and Bonn), 5.6% reported using cinnamon for this indication (79).
Cinnamon has been touted as having a positive effect on postprandi-
al glucose metabolism (80). Its ability to lower blood sugar in individ-
uals with diabetes has been discussed (81). Naturally occurring com-
pounds found in cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia), including chromi-
um and polyphenols, may improve insulin sensitivity (82). Human
data suggest that cinnamon exhibits "sweet" properties and may be
used in strategies for reduction of sugar intake (83).
Each two liquid filled veggie caps contain 250 mg of Cinnamon
Bark (alcohol extract), 75 mg of Cinnamon Bark (supercritical carbon
dioxide extract, standardized ro 40 mg Cinnamaldehydes.
Also available in a vegetarian capsule form. Each veggie capsule

Most doctors recommend omega-3 supple-
ments, typically from fish oil, to all their
patients. Why? One reason is that in the
United States about 84,000 deaths per year
are attributable to low intake of these essen-
tial oils. People with higher blood levels of
omega-3 have been shown to be 90 percent
less likely to develop sudden cardiac arrest
than those with low (normal) levels. What's
more, in one large study, heart patients given
omega-3 capsules cut their risk of sudden
death nearly in half. Remarkably, a similar
story is developing for Alzheimer's disease
where people with the highest omega-3 lev-
els were about 50 percent less likely to
develop dementia over nine years. Since
there is no known health risk from taking
omega-3 supplements, it is my view that vir-
tually every American should either eat more
omega-3 rich fish (salmon, sardines, macker-
el, herring, albacore tuna, etc.) or take fish
oil (EPAlDHA) supplements.
This book explains how fish oil provides
you with many health benefits and guides
you to adopt optimal usage of the essential
nutrients found in fish oil. All that you need
to know about fish oil-from the initial discov-
ery in Greenland of how it protects against
heart disease to the latest research on how it
reduces the risk of Alzheimer's disease has
been distilled from thousands of scientific
studies and hundreds of clinical trials and
condensed into practical information you can
use to improve your health now and to live
better longer.
I don't know of anybody who would not
benefit from learning more about fish oil and
its many health advantages, which range
from preventing heart disease, arthritis, dia-
betes, and dementias to staying younger
longer. [ern Dyerberg, M.D., DMSc., is the
