How Hydraulic Fluid Can Prevent Prostate Cancer Deaths

Casper to Custer, SD

Gary Van Zandt’s Story

During my stop at my Starbucks “office” in Casper prior to my interviews at ABC and NBC, I rant into Gary Van Zandt, who is a very youthful 70.  Gary retired from the Caterpillar corporation and now runs Platte River Outfitters in Casper.

We started talking about PSA testing – that’s my mission, right? – and he told me he tracks every test.  This is great but very unusual and I asked him how he developed this routine.

He explained that his penchant for testing came from his job at Caterpillar, which included testing the hydraulic fluid for any contaminants that would cause wear or failure.

This, of course, reminded me of my days flying helicopters in the Army.  We routinely tested all of the oil in the various gears boxes after every 25 hours of operation for the same reason.

The PSA Test is Part of Annual Blood Test Panel

The PSA (prostate specific antigen) test is just one component of the blood test panel that should be part of your annual physical.  Cholesterol and blood lipids are other components.

Tracking your PSA value from one year to the next is a quick and easy way to detect any upward trend, which is the danger sign.

How You Can Implement the Gary Van Zandt Method

Simply go to 29000men.org, download a PSA Tracker, input your most recent three PSA test values and connect the dots.  You’ll be glad you did.
