More about Jerry Hickey, Ph.
“Back in the 1970s when I attended Saint John’s University School of Pharmacy, I was learning all about chemotherapy. I was also learning how damaging the drugs used to treat these diseases could be and how devastating cancers and other diseases were. It began to occur to me that perhaps there was a way of avoiding the disease process or at least stacking the odds against developing many of today’s more common diseases. One sure fire way of helping was good nutrition and the emerging studies on gene vs. environment support the career path I have chosen. The reason so many different plant ingredients are so healthy is because they contain phyto-chemicals that positively impact good health by managing the activity of your genes. Broccoli and other cabbage vegetables, green tea and the ingredients in red grapes are just some examples of foods that protect you by properly conducting the orchestra which is your genes. I have dedicated my entire life to collating and disseminating this information and to designing products to support the effort.”
