Dr. Maynard Murray
Medical Doctor and Research Scientist
Soil Science Pioneer

Dr. Maynard Murray—scientist and medical doctor—was perplexed that Americans live longer, yet chronic illness, degenerative diseases and physiological suffering steadily increase. Dr. Murray searched for the key to improve human health. He began his medical research by studying animal species that do not get cancer—that seem to have inherent immunity.

Dr. Murray’s investigation discovered that sea animals show no sign of cancer—or any degenerative disease. To study this remarkable resistance, Dr. Murray fertilized crops with sea water, and found this grew plants that were remarkably improved—with virtual immunity to disease. This insight launched Dr. Murray's lifetime of research to document and understand this effect.

Dr. Maynard Murray found the secret to health in sea water! He discovered our health—or lack thereof—is directly depends on minerals and trace elements in food we eat. Dr. Murray believed minerals and trace elements lost from soils due to farming, erosion, leaching, and poor soil management must be replenished.

As a medical doctor, Murray was impressed that sea water has 90 of 92 elements in The Periodic Table of Elements. Even more revealing, the minerals in sea water are in the perfect, naturally balanced blend—the ideal mix of minerals for optimum health.

From 1947 to 1980, Dr. Murray's experiments consistently showed that soils enhanced with full spectrum sea minerals grow crops that are superior in every way:

life & research

  • Plants grown in soil enriched with full spectrum ocean elements grow faster, larger, stronger, darker, tastier, with higher nutrient density and greater disease resistance
  • Sea minerals were consistently effective in every type of growing system (farm, garden, hydroponics) and crop (vegetables, grains, grapes, small fruits, tree fruits and nuts)
  • Animals offered plants grown in sea-mineral-enriched soil preferred them over conventional feeds, and grew faster, heavier, stronger per pound of feed consumed, with no defects
  • Most revealing: laboratory mice genetically selected by inbreeding to develop breast cancer and die—when fed feeds grown in sea mineral enriched soil—most didn't die of breast cancer, had ten instead of the normal two litters, and those offspring had only 2% breast cancer.
  • Tragically, Dr. Murray died in 1984 believing no one cared about a nutritional approach to degenerative disease, that his writings had fallen on deaf ears, that his lifetime of research would amount to nothing despite declining public health.
