Jorn Dyerberg, M.D.
Dr. Jorn Dyerberg is one of the world’s leading authorities on the health benefits of omega-3 fish oils. He received his degree in medicine from the University of Aarhus in Aarhus, Denmarck.
In 1971, Dr. Dyerberg published a landmark study in The Lancet regarding heart heath. In the early 1970s, he led a research team that studied blood lipid levels among the Inuit population in Greenland. The group set out to find why the Inuit society had a low occurance of heart disease, despite a diet of mostly seal and fish. Dr. Dyerberg first hypothesized that it was related to the abundance of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA found in the fish. He would lead 5 separate scientific expeditions to Northwest Greenland to examine the association between fish oil intake and coronary heart disease. Dr. Dyerberg has received several awards and accolades for his ground-breaking omega-3 research.
Dr. Dyerberg has held several physician positions at Denmark hospitals and research institutions and has also served as a professor at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. He is currently the medical and scientific advisor for Napro-Pharma Ltd. in Norway. View videos (20)
