Celery’s surprisingly colorful history has sparked my imagination and has humbled me to the wisdom of great scholars of the past.  Are celery benefits scientifically proven?  Let’s take a look at what we know today.

I decided that I wanted to explore the rich tales of this plant to see if our ancestral traditions surrounding this plant could be put to the test with modern science.

The legends of celery are bigger than life.  Say what you will about this under-respected, often bitter and lanky vegetable, it has some amazing lore and legends.

The history of plants and their use to aid human survival gives us clues and windows into the rich past.about life, and possibly how we need to move forward with progress in the modern world which abounds with poor quality of health.
