Some Ormus does work, and it can hold nutritional value. Check out these links involving the use of ormus as a plant fertilizer.
How can it work if they don't know what it is? Seriously. All the things I see say it's some "mysterious state" that "hasn't been found by
science". So how do they know it exists?
If there's no test for it, how do they know their information is accurate?
This link will show a good amount of pictures if you click on one of the four categories: field crops, orchard, vegetables & fruit, home &
I did. What I don't notice is proof that only this was used and that it was done under a large-scale condition (differences in areas of the ground
change growth rates of plants. There are two pecan trees in my yard that we planted 10 years ago. One is now 20 feet tall, the other only 15 feet.
One produced pecans earlier than the other one did. They were not treated differently... so you see how the difference in plant genetics and site can
You get around this by growing plants in labs and using clones of the same plant so that genetic differences in size and growth aren't just a matter
of different genetics.
I've used C-11 and C-Gro with incredible success. How could you deny the evidence with plants?
How do you know that the difference wasn't due simply to a good brand of fertilizer (they keep the ingredients a "secret") and your own attention
to these "special" plants?
I did look up their info, and frankly most of it appears to be inaccurate. Sea salt is not good for most plants, which is why you can't grow most
crops successfully right next to the ocean. The land has to be desalinated (usually by planting and harvesting salt-tolerant plants.) You can try
this for yourself by watering your poor plants with a mix of distilled water and sea salt.
The website spins a charming tale, but when you cut through the charm, you find that they've got
* a "product" (with no known formulation)
* that they swear contains ORMUS
* which is material in a "state unknown to science"
* they say ORMUS is undetectable because the elements masquerade as other elements (without explaining how you can get something with 2 protons to
pretend it's not Helium)
* you buy this product ... with no listing of what the ingredients are. How do you know what's in there?
One "red flag" is this statement on their site:
Yes, SEA-CROP has been certified by the Washington State Department of Agriculture Organic Food Program as being in compliance with the United
States Department of Agriculture National Organic Program.
In fact, the Washington State Dept of Agriculture has done no such thing. You can look it up here:
If they meant that it is a substance that meets all the requirements on the "things usable in organic farming" list (there's bunches of them), then
it's one of the products here...and they are publicizing with a very misleading statement:
On their testing -- ergh. As a scientist, I do have something to say about that:
The "forcing 4 week old mice to swim until they drown from exhaustion" is brutal, ineffective, and unnecessary -- and frankly wouldn't be permitted
in most US labs. You feed them, swiftly and humanely kill them and then run tests on the bodies or feed them and run stress and exercise tests on
the, but you do not kill them with the exercise.
Sorry. I'm about to go into a rant about this. I'll do (insert token rant about brutal and senseless torture of lab animals that would get most
profs kicked out of the university) and go on.
The "Netherlands study" is equally flawed. No company is mentioned and the methodology is also suspect. There's no info on the group and the
control group, what breed they were, etc, etc. No stats. Just "a study" which you are told took place. When I use the Dutch version of Google and
google only pages from the Netherlands, "Sea Corp" is not mentioned anywhere. No information on how they delivered this product to the chicks
(unless they injected or forced them to drink (okay... imagine hand-forcing medical doses down the throats of 250,000 chicks each and every day)).
There's some very serious questions here and the info I see indicates some scientifically unethical practices and sloppy research.
