Hi! We are Marlena and George, and we live in the real science garden. We love all natural sunshine, and dirt. We love the science of what is in dirt, and how it is, pretty much, the same things that are in our bodies. I really want to try to explain why we call this The Science Garden. I watched a movie the other day that did a perfect job of perpetuating the propaganda of healthy food and nature being synonymous with hippies drinking tree bark as coffee, doing drugs, and having open sex. Why do you have to be naked and drinking tree bark if you want to eat healthy, and you care about the environment? It is easy to see that there are a lot of crazy home remedies, along with things that just aren’t proven and don’t even make sense. However, there are a lot of alternative medicines that work, and can be proven with science. There is even something called “Integrative Medicine” which includes conventional and alternative healing methods. Here in TSG, we eat “organic” food as much as possible, but we don’t live our lives around finding, buying, and preparing food. We are not fanatics about diet, but our knowledge about it helps in making our food decisions more effective and creative. This website is designed to educate you on some science and chemistry in an understandable way, so when you read these ads about how this chemical does that, and that chemical does this, you will have an idea of what they are talking about. A lot of people put a lot of time, money, and effort into things that just don’t work! We are not those people. This is one area where ignorance is not bliss, and the basic science of health is not that complicated.
Read the short articles on the pages atoms and molecules, the cell, and then pH, and you will probably know more about nutrition than your doctor before we even get started.
We try not to use labels like “vegan” or “vegetarian” because we find them to be limiting and confining. We feel that there is a stigma that goes along with that kind of fanaticism that creates a roadblock for the average person.
We believe that not everything natural is good for you, and not everything that isn’t natural is bad for you. If you are on this website because you are concerned about your health, then you already think like a hybrid. The fact that you are using a computer is telling that you are not willing to live like a caveman to be healthy.
This site was created to give people a chance to think for themselves because we believe that fanaticism exists on both sides. “Organic” people would have you believe that it’s some kind of sin to take an aspirin, and there is no doubt that disinformation and corruption are rampant in the pharmaceutical industry.
We chose a substance called colloidal silver as our first article because we think it is a great thing, and it is also a great example of how extreme both sides can be. We have provided some links to show you how not only is the “blue man” deceptive and misleading (which we know because of the science), but when the other side blasts back it is with many allegations that they can’t prove, which discounts the truth that lies within the opposing argument. We think that the argument presented in the opposing article causes as much damage to the reputation of colloidal silver as does the blue man. We are hoping that providing the facts, along with some of the science, you will be able to see through the propaganda on both sides, and easily get to the truth on your own. So come in, look around, and let your knowledge about yourself and the world grow in The Science Garden.
