VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 5, 2005) - One Person
Health Sciences Inc. (TSX VENTURE:OPH)

Mr. George Fleming, CEO and Founder of One Person Health Sciences Inc.
(OPH), is pleased to announce that 10,821 consumers completed OPH's
Personal Nutrition Health Assessment during the month of December, which
is an 80% increase over November's total of 5,987. A total of 34,109
Assessments have been delivered since launch in March of 2004, of which
over 76% have been delivered since September.

102% increase in Visits

Over the past month the Company has also seen an increase of 102% in the
number of visits to OPH's website www.onepersonhealth.com. The total
number of visits during December was 203,282 compared to November's
total of 100,574 and October's total of 74,439.

The Personal Nutrition Assessment

The Personal Nutrition Health Assessment asks consumers 70 detailed
questions related to their health, diet, lifestyle, elimination, medical
conditions, and medications. Consumers completing the questionnaire also
provide OPH with personal and contact information. The assessment
questionnaire takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and once
finished consumers are provided a free Health Risk Report or one of
OPH's proprietary ONEMed™ health condition reports, three of which
have been launched to date: ONEMed™ High Cholesterol/Statin report,
the ONEMed™ Cardiovascular Disease Report and the ONEMed™ High
Blood Pressure report.

Over 80% with Medical Conditions or on Medication

Over 80% of consumers completing the Personal Nutrition Health
Assessment indicate that they are on medication or have a medical
condition. The assessment includes detailed lists of medications and
asks consumers to record the prescriptions they are currently taking as
well as their primary and secondary medical conditions. Since launching
the medication and medical condition section of the of the Personal
Nutrition Health Assessment in September 2004, OPH has built a database
of over 20,000 consumers who have indicated they have a medical
condition and/or are taking specific medications.

OPH has launched the first three of a series of specialized reports
targeted at consumers with specific medical conditions; the ONEMed™
High Cholesterol/Statin report, the ONEMed™ Cardiovascular Disease
Report and the ONEMed™ High Blood Pressure report.

The ONEMed™ reports expand on the scope of information generated by
the Company's general health assessment and are designed with current
pharmacology practices in mind, offering supportive therapies and
protocols to be utilized in conjunction with traditional medications and
practices. ONEMed™ reports also deliver personalized advice on
therapeutic diets, lifestyle improvements, exercise, cooking, hydration
and elimination. After analyzing the prescriptions currently being used
by an individual, OPH provides up to date information on known
interactions and nutrient deficiencies associated with the selected
medications. In addition it provides a comprehensive list of supplements
to help improve the condition including condition specific supplements,
a list of supplements required to offset the consumers personal nutrient
deficiencies and of those nutrients they must avoid due to serious
drug-nutrient interactions caused by their medications

"OPH is experiencing first hand the immense desire of consumers to learn
more about and take control of their own health and nutrition. The
ongoing increase in demand for our health assessments is a reflection of
this desire," states Mr. Fleming, "The question -What Should I Be
Taking?- is something we hear over and over again and we are just
beginning to see the incredible demand for personalized health care
solutions that the aging Baby Boomer generation will drive."
