World Health Energy Holdings Inc. Announces Production of 70,000 Liters of Spirulina Biomass at GNE Algae Production Facility

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - World Health Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: WHEN) (PINKSHEETS: WHEN), a public holding company developing joint venture partnerships for algae production for biodiesel and commercial fish food, announced today that GNE's algae production facility has successfully grown and harvested Spirulina using the proprietary GB 3000 algae growth system.

World Health Energy Holdings, Inc. recently acquired GNE-India, an algae technology company with the distribution and licensing rights to a unique and innovative system to grow algae quickly and efficiently for energy and food protein. GNE-India owns and retains the territorial rights for distribution and sales of the proprietary technology to both India and Sri Lanka.

World Health Energy Holdings has exclusive distribution and licensing rights to the GNE GB 3000 system in India and Croatia. Earlier this year, the GB 3000 system was used to grow a combination of local algae species, as well as Chlorella, targeting the product to the fish feed and biodiesel markets.

Spirulina is a valuable nutritional food crop and is sold around the world as a food supplement at over $50 US per Kg. Spirulina contains 70% protein with a wide range of amino acids, beta carotene, vitamins in the B group, especially B12, calcium, iron, potassium and zinc, as well as antibiotic agents and antioxidants. The successful production of Spirulina is a significant milestone because it is a specialized crop that is more delicate than other species.

The algae production facility is currently conducting tests on the average rate of production of dry biomass, and will announce the results in the coming months.

Jeremy Werblowsky, CFO of World Health Energy Holdings, said, "This announcement is important in that it validates the significant value of the GB 3000 algae growth technology. Our success with Spirulina paves the way for WHEN to utilize the GB 3000 algae growth system for other pharmaceutical and nutraceutical crops." Werblowsky added, "We look forward to finalizing the joint venture partnerships currently in negotiations for the building of commercial algae farms for the production of biodiesel and, in the case of Spirulina production, highly nutritional and economical commercial fish food."

World Health Energy Holdings, Inc. is focused on biofuels produced from algae, which boasts substantially higher yields in comparison to ethanol derived from corn, rapeseed, jatropha and palm oil. The company also works with visionary enterprises in the multi-billion dollar renewable energy arena producing progressive, broad-based solutions for better physical, nutritional and environmental health worldwide. In addition, the company is pursuing an ancillary use of algae -- the efficient production of high-protein fish feed for commercial fish farms.

Shareholders and interested investors who would like to be added to WHEN's corporate e-mail list are encouraged to send an e-mail to info@worldhealthenergy.com for all future corporate press releases and industry updates.
