Career: hepato-carcinoma research

This and the following 4 topics of tabs are the career positions that I have had, but they can be an illustration of different occupations or careers that a person can follow.  Getting a good education is important as a foundation for our careers. We may not always end up in the profession that we studied in college, but the honest techniques for learning and finding new truth that we learn in our studies can be applied to any field.

          The first and last profession I followed was as a research biochemist.  First with the U.S Fish & Wildlife Service, and last in cancer research using trout liver as a model.  This was done in a facility and corporation that I built with my own funds with the generous provision of spring water and property of  Dr. Robert and Dolores Sand.

400 Gal/ min spring feeds Ashley Creek & 24 fish tanks.
Research facility built in year 2000 on 14 x 40 ft raceway

Right at 2,000 fish livers were excised, and examined at this facility, for hepato-carcinomas that involed over 70 different diets.  Right at 997 of these livers were fixed in formalin and scanned for hepatocellular carcinomas by Dr. Richard Whitten at Cellnetix Laboratories. 

The results shown below demonstrate the effect that Vitamin E-succinate and that protein has on the tumor incidence.   A detailed description of this and other results are being given at
