    "During the course of his 25-year career Jim has lived and worked in Canada, Europe, and the United States and has played a leading role in the development, manufacturing, marketing and sales of vitamins, carotenoids and other nutritional ingredients in the food, dietary supplement, animal feed and personal care industries."


    This means he knows how to get the job done and make krill oil as ubiquitous as DHA; Martek's goal not just in baby formula but milk etc.

    How and why he will spread the benefits of krill oil:

    "Our products are essential to life

    In North America we sometimes become so focused on “optimal nutrition” that we forget about the essential nature of the products our industry provides. One needs only to travel to developing nations to see that nutrition is not about being able to run faster, be active longer or have our kids do better in school – for many people in the world, it’s about life and death. I had the opportunity to travel last year with Vitamin Angels, a wonderful organization that is delivering vitamin A to impoverished and undernourished populations. In India I was introduced by one of their doctors to a little girl with Bitot’s spots who, without vitamin A, would go blind and possibly die within the year. DSM supports not only the Vitamin Angels but also other organizations including the World Food Programme, Sight and Life, US Aid, World Vision and Scaling Up Nutrition to help create and sustain a healthy future for millions of people in need."

    written by Jim Hamilton

    and talk about charisma and intelligence. See him in India trying to team up and cure blindness through vitamins and nutritional supplements. HE IS OURS

    "By scouring the DNA of thousands of patients, researchers at the Broad Institute, Massachusetts General Hospital, and their colleagues have discovered four rare gene mutations that not only lower the levels of triglycerides, a type of fat in the blood, but also significantly reduce a person’s risk of coronary heart disease — dropping it by 40 percent. The mutations all cripple the same gene, called APOC3, suggesting a powerful strategy in developing new drugs against heart disease. The work, which appears in the June 18 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, sheds light on the biological role of triglycerides and contributes to a growing body of knowledge that suggests that high triglyceride levels — rather than low HDL, another type of fat in the blood — are a major culprit in heart disease."

    Something to keep in mind.

    Hey there. Bob Hewitt from LA and my dad, Felix Jenkins, performed that first mitral procedure on a Vietnamese man. My Pop thinks he remembers you. He says that equipment required serious labor, expertise and time give constraints of x-ray processing etc.. Best to you. If you would like to reconnect with 18th Surg, let me know. God bless
