NASA gives thumbs up to use of colloidal silver as antibiotic in space; FDA has no jurisdiction in high orbit.

(NaturalNews) In the day-to-day happenings of world politics, the United States and Russia are presented on the global stage as arch-enemies.

Up in space, however, it's a completely different story. Enter the International Space Station (ISS), which for years has housed astronauts from both countries along with life-support systems unique to each country's needs. The two sides have long remained separate from one another until recently.

For years, the U.S. side of the ISS utilized iodine as its water cleansing agent of choice, while the Russian side took advantage of antibacterial silver for water purification purposes. Both sides coexisted peacefully in their respective methods, with the U.S. picking up whatever extra water the Russian side had leftover. Russia's water purification process has always been much more efficient than that of the U.S.

It seemed that the two opposing nations would never find a common bond in adopting a single, standardized water purification method that served the interests of everyone. However, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) recently made the decision to adopt Russia's method of purifying its water after coming to the realization that adding ionized silver to water is easier, more effective, and much more efficient than adding iodine.

"Unlike iodine, silver doesn't have to be filtered out of the water," explains a report by Bloomberg, noting that iodine has to be filtered out of the U.S. water after use. "Epsom salts (magnesium) are added to improve its taste." 

NASA says silver is an effective purifying agent, despite what the FDA claims

Isn't the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) adamantly opposed to people using silver as a safe bactericide? The agency has repeatedly targeted companies trying to help people with antibacterial silver, including during the recent Ebola epidemic when it threatened organizations like the Natural Solutions Foundation for attempting to help Ebola victims by providing them with silver water.

What about the FDA's persecution of Texas-based Utopia Silver Supplements, which has been fighting the agency for more than five years to defend its sale and distribution of colloidal silver supplements? The FDA continues to stonewall all attempts to conduct honest research into silver's bacteria-destroying properties, and they have even threatened to shut down companies that sell it for personal and/or medical use.

The FDA apparently has no jurisdiction up in space, as both U.S. and Russian astronauts will now be taking advantage of silver as a water purifier. Clean water is understandably hard to come by on a space shuttle, and any method of obtaining it is open game. The fact that silver is now the primary method of keeping astronauts alive says a lot about its therapeutic potential.

The U.S. side of the ISS will continue to produce drinking water using iodine as a backup. As ISS subsystems manager Layne Carter puts it, they plan "to have dissimilar redundancies in the space station in case one of the systems has problems." Nevertheless, the purifying method of choice will now be silver.

"Due to widespread growth in the use of colloidal silver as a biocidal agent, development of a simple and cost efficient method of silver testing is valuable," admits NASA on its website. "On station, silver is used as a biocidal agent based on its antimicrobial properties in the potable water system."

NASA is supporting research into a simple technique that it says will allow ISS crew members to test silver levels in water in less than two minutes.

What Doctors Have Said About Colloidal Silver

A fantastic article about Colloidal Silver from Kay "Violet" Hardy:
Subject: What Doctors Have Said About Colloidal Silver

Thanx Thomas for sharing…good, solid information…Don

What  Doctors Have Said About Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver has proven particularly  effective in cases of microbial infection. Dr. Henry Crooks found that "Silver  in the colloidal state is highly
germicidal, quite harmless to humans and  absolutely non-toxic. Rather than in
a chemical compound, the silver in the colloidal state may be applied in a much more concentrated form, with  correspondingly better results. All virus, fungus, bacterium, streptococcus,  staphylococcus, and other pathogenic
organisms are killed in three or four  minutes upon contact. There are no side
effects whatsoever from the highest  concentrations."

Colloidal silver has been proven useful against all  species of fungi,
bacteria, protozoa, parasites and certain viruses, which are  often killed within
minutes. Dr. L. C. Ford, M.D. at the UCLA School of Medicine  reported in 1988
that silver solutions were effective against the following  conditions:

Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aures, Neisseria gonorrhea,  Garnerella
vaginalis, Salmonella typhi and other enteric pathogens. He also  found that it was
fungicidal for Candida albicans, Candida globata and M.  furfur.

How Colloidal Silver Works

The most accepted theory is  that silver disables the specific enzyme that
many forms of bacteria, viruses  and fungi utilize for their metabolism. When
silver nears a virus, fungi,  bacterium or any single-celled microbe it is
effective against, it disables the  oxygen-metabolism enzyme. This destroys the
microbe's ability to "breath" and  within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates
and dies. The dead germ and its  toxins are then cleared out of the body by
the immune, lymphatic and elimination  systems. It is not exactly clear how
silver disrupts the enzymes in these single  celled animals, but it is believed
that the silver's natural positive electrica1  charge is influential. This is
why electrically generated colloidal silver is  the absolute best form of silver
for fighting infection and related infectious  diseases.

Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics which destroy beneficial  bodily enzymes,
colloidal silver leaves our bodies tissue and cell enzymes  intact, as they are
different than enzymes found in single celled pathogens.  Thus colloidal
silver is generally considered safe for humans, pets, plants and  all multi-celled
living matter. Some health care professionals believe silver  may be linked
to the proper functioning of our immune system and that people  with inadequate
intakes of silver may be more prone to infection. 

Dr. Robert Becker, author of the 1980's best selling book The  Body Electric,
recognized a correlation between low silver levels in the human  body, and
sickness. He said a silver deficiency in humans was responsible for  the
improper functioning of the immune system. Dr. Becker's experiments conclude  that
silver works on the full spectrum of pathogens without any side effects or
damage to any part of the body. He also states that the silver was doing
something more than killing disease organisms, It was also causing major growth
stimulation of injured tissues. Burn patients and elderly patients noticed more
rapid healing. He discovered that cancer cells change back to normal cells in
the presence of electrically generated colloidal silver. All strains of
pathogens he tested, even those resistant to antibiotics, were killed by  colloidal

From the article "Silver, Our Mightiest Germ  Fighter," in Science Digest,
March, 1978: "As an antibiotic, silver kills over  650 disease causing
organisms, and resistant strains fail to develop. Silver is  the best all-around germ
fighter we have and is absolutely non-toxic! Doctors  report that, taken
internally, it works against syphilis, cholera, malaria  diabetes and severe burns.
Richard L. Davies, executive director of the Silver  Institute which monitors
silver technology in 37 countries, reports: 'In four  years we've described 87
important new medical uses for silver.'

Dr.  Bjorn Nordstrom, of the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, has used
colloidal silver in his cancer treatment method. He says the whole thing is  quite
simple. Colloidal silver, used in conjunction with other natural therapies
developed by Dr. Nordstrom, brought rapid remission in cancer patients given up  on
by other doctors.

Uses for Colloidal Silver

Preventing and  Healing Low Grade Infections: According to many colloidal
silver researchers,  taking sufficient daily colloidal silver can saturate the
body such that the  germs simply can't gain a foothold. Many people, including
many elderly, suffer  from a general low- grade body infection that holds back
vigor and alertness.  They report that using up to an ounce or two of homemade
colloidal silver each  day often brings about an increase of energy and
alertness, as well as enjoying  better overall health throughout the year.

Parasite Infections: Some  diseases are caused by tiny worm-like organisms
that burrow through particular  organs and sometimes throughout much of the
body. They reproduce by laying eggs.  These eggs have the same enzymatic
characteristics of all of the other disease-  causing organisms that colloidal silver
suffocates. So the parasite eggs also  suffocate and the parasites can no
longer reproduce successfully in your  body.

Resistant Strains of Germs: The use of modern man-made  antibiotiqs has
increasingly led to mutant strains of germs that the antibiotics  can no longer
kill. Colloidal silver does not appear to have this problem. Why?  Because unlike
man-made antibiotics which are basically "bug poison for the  human body,"
colloidal silver is not a poison. Instead, it deals with all gerr  the same way:
it suffocates them by disabling the enzyme they need for  respiration.

Accelerated Healing: Colloidal silver reportedly  shortens the time for
healing to take place in wounds, and lessens the amount of  scar tissue. This is
apparently due to the beneficial action that colloidal  silver has on tissue
cells. It seems to cause some of their cell divisions to  produce cells that are,
in a sense, generic. These generic cells migrate  wherever they are needed in
the body. They help repair tissue damage by changing  into the type of tissue
cell needed at the wound in preference to the scar  tissue that would
normally form.

Diarrhea Diseases: Diseases like  cholera, canine parvovirus and other
conditions where the disease-causing germ  resides mainly in the large intestine
have been effectively treated by a  different approach. It is difficult for the
colloidal silver to get all the way  to the large intestine before the body
absorbs it if you take the normal daily  amount orally. An effective approach is
to take large quantities instead (i.e.  two ounces or more followed by two big
glasses of water). This will allow the  colloidal silver to make it all the
way into the large intestine so it can very  quickly take care of the problem.

What Specifically Can Colloidal  Silver Be Used For?

Here is a small sample of diseases against which  Colloidal Silver has been
used successfully (see other chapters, particularly  chapters 4, 7 and 11 of
the manual for more): acne, allergies, appendicitis,  arthritis, blood
parasites, bubonic plague, burns (colloidal silver is one of  the few treatments that
can keep severe burn patients alive), cancer, candida,  cholera, chronic
fatigue, colds and flu, conjunctivitis, diabetes, gonorrhea,  hay fever, herpes,
leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, lyme disease,  malaria, meningitis,
parasitic infections both viral and fungal, pneumonia,  rheumatism, ringworm,
scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth  and throat, shingles,
skin cancer, staph infections, strep infections, syphilis,  toxemia, trenchfoot,
numerous forms of viruses, warts and stomach ulcers.  

A Colloidal Silver Primer - History of Colloidal Silver

In  ancient civilizations, the wealthy stored and ate their food from silver
vessels  to keep bacteria from growing. American settlers often put a silver
dollar in  milk containers to delay its spoilage. It was not until the late
1800's that  Western scientists were able to understand scientifically what had
been known in  ancient medicine for thousands of years… that silver is a
powerful germ  fighter! After discovering that the body's vital fluids, such as
blood, are  colloidal in nature, scientists and doctors explored the
possibilities of using  colloids in medicine. The silver solution known as "Colloidal
Silver" became  widely used in medicine as one of the main-stays of
anti-microbial treatment. 

The medical journal Lancet reported phenomenal results from colloidal  silver
in 1914. Dr. Henry Crooks showed colloidal silver to be highly germicidal
yet absolutely harmless and non-toxic to humans. Throughout the early 1900's
colloidal silver rapidly gained fame as one of the best infection-fighting
agents in existence. But unfortunately its fame was short lived. The high cost  of
silver combined with the fact that silver solutions could not be patented
motivated the development of more profitable infection-fighting drugs by the
major pharmaceutical conglomerates. The new prescription antibiotic drugs such
as penicillin and others became the choice in medical treatments. However,
thirty years after the discovery of pharmaceutical antibiotics many types of
bacteria acquired an immunity to these drugs. Frustrated doctors, tired of
seeing their patients die from infections with antibiotic resistant pathogens,
began looking back to the past for answers. In doing so, they have r!
e-discovered the amazing ant ibiotic properties of colloidal silver, which had  been
known for many decades.

The Rediscovery of Silver as a Powerful  Antibiotic

According to Zane Baronowski, CN, in his booklet, Colloidal Silver: The
Natural Antibiotic Alternative: "The comeback of silver in medicine  began in the
1970's. The late Dr. Carl Moyer, chairman of Washington University's
Department of Surgery,  received a grant to develop better treatments for burn victims.
Dr. Margraf, as  the chief biochemist, worked with Dr. Moyer and other
surgeons to find an  antiseptic strong enough, yet safe to use over large areas of
the body. Dr.  Margraf reviewed 22 antiseptic compounds and found drawbacks in
all of them.  'Mercury, for example, is an excellent antiseptic but toxic, '
he comments.  'Popular antiseptics….can be used over small areas only. '

Furthermore,  disease organisms can become resistant to antibiotics, triggering a
dangerous  super-infection. 'These compounds are also ineffective against a
number of  harmful bacteria, including the biggest killer in burn cases a
greenish-blue  bacterium called Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It almost! always shows up
in burns,  releasing a poison.'

"Reviewing the medical literature, Dr. Margraf found  repeated references to
silver. It was described as a catalyst that disables the  enzymes
microorganisms depend on to 'breathe. ' Consequently, they die.  Therefore, Dr. Margraf
decided to use the best known pharmaceutical compound of  silver: silver
nitrate. Concentrated silver nitrate was corrosive and painful.  So he diluted the
silver nitrate to a .5 percent solution and found that it  killed the
Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria and permitted wounds to heal.  Resistant strains did not
appear. Silver nitrate, however, was far from ideal.  It disturbed the
balance of body salts, was thick and cumbersome to use and  stained everything it
touched. Dr. Margraf searched for other preparations of  silver, and in the
process helped re-discover colloidal silver, which he found  to be highly
effective on the burns. As a result of these efforts, hundreds of  important new
medical uses for silver were found. Dr. Harry Margraf later  concluded, 'Silver is
the best all around germ-fighter we have.  '

Future uses of Colloidal Silver

Although reports on the use of  colloidal silver have spanned the past 100
years, research relating to its  recent use is limited. However, through a
growing number of physicians,  dentists, veterinarians, nutritionists and satisfied
users, information  regarding the modern day uses of colloidal silver is
mounting. It would seem  that the effective and safe use of colloidal silver in
the treatment of many  common infectious disorders is only limited by the

Some  other diseases that have been successfully treated with colloidal
silver are:  bladder infection, blood-poison, boils, bubonic plague, burns, candida
yeast  infection, chilblains, cholera, conjunctivitis, cold sores, cold &
flu,  cystitis, diabetes, dermatitis, fungal infections, herpes, HIV virus,
indigestion, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, lyrne disease, malaria (now
making a comeback in the southern U.S. states), meningitis, neurasthenia,
puritis ani, psoriasis, ophthalmia, rabbit fever, rhinitis, ringworm, scarlet
fever, and septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth 8c throat. Plus, shingles,
 sinus infections, staph infections, syphilis, thyroid, tonsillitis, toxemia,
 trachoma, trench-foot, tuberculosis, ulcers, viruses, warts, whooping cough,
 other many other uses. 

What is Colloidal Silver?

The term  "colloid" refers to a substance that consists of ultra-fine
particles suspended  within a liquid solution. Properly manufactured colloidal silver
is a liquid  solution consisting of submicroscopic particles of silver, held
in suspension in  pure water by a tiny electrical charge. In a true colloid
these particles are  about 04 to 0001 microns in diameter. These particles
cannot be seen by the  naked eye and are electrically charged.

Many references can be found  describing a "quality" colloidal silver as
being light yellow or golden in  color. However, after hundreds of hours of
searching, no medical literature  could be found describing the golden-colored
colloidal silver as being any more  therapeutically effective than clear or
silver-colored colloidal silver.  Colloidal silver made with the small
battery-operated generators is considered  to be extremely high quality, yet it is generally
clear to silverish in the  liquid suspension.

Will Colloidal Silver Kill the "Friendly Bacteria" in  Your Intestines?

Colloidal silver that contains 99.99% (pure silver) with  particles that are
.04 to ..0001 microns in diameter with a concentration of 25 ppm (parts per
million) or less have little effect on the friendly bacteria in  our digestive

In small doses (i.e., preventive dosages of about one  tablespoon per
day) much of the silver itself is absorbed in the mouth or  stomach and never
reaches the intestinal area. However some researchers believe  that colloidal
silver products with higher concentrations or larger particles of  silver can
attack friendly bacteria just like some antibiotics. There is also  evidence
that when taken in high dosages, some of the colloidal silver is  evacuated
through the colon and may kill some of the friendly bacteria there.  This could
upset your natural intestinal floral balance.

The generally  accepted recommended dosage is 5 to 40 ppm, although many
researchers take  significantly higher dosages with no apparent loss of friendly
bacteria in the  gut. Nonetheless, researchers suggest that if you intend to
take larger dosages  of concentrated colloidal silver over an extend period of
time, you should also  take a "friendly bacteria" supplement such as
lactobacillus acidophilus,  available at most health food stores, in order to prevent
the possibility of  depleting the much-needed beneficial bacteria in your
stomach and digestive  system.

Nutritional Dosage for Daily Intake

Currently, there is no  federally recognized "minimum daily requirement" for
silver in the human body.  In 1940, R. A. Kehoe reported that under normal
circumstances, the average daily  intake of fruits and vegetables would provide
between 50-100 mcg of silver as a  trace element. Since that time, the
commercial farm soils of this country have  become extremely deficient in trace
minerals. According to the Earth Summit  Report, issued in 1992, the levels of soil
based minerals in North America have dropped over 85% in the last 100 years.

Why Won’t Doctors Admit to Colloidal Silver Usage?

Over the past 16 years, Steve Barwick of has spoken at length with literally thousands of experienced colloidal silver users, as part of his research for writing and updating his 547-page book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual.

Most of these conversations have been with typical users of nutritional supplements and believers in natural health and nutrition.
But many dozens of these conversations over the years have also been with medical doctors, nurses, dentists, and other orthodox medical practitioners who actually do use colloidal silver extensively
What's amazing is that almost to a person, when I ask these medical practitioners about the extent of their colloidal silver usage, they not only turn out to be avid users, but in most cases they are ecstatic about their results.
“Do You Use Colloidal Silver On Your Patients?”
But when asked "Do you use colloidal silver on your patients, or recommend it to them?" their answer is almost inevitably an emphatic, "No…I couldn't do that!" When asked why, they say, "I wouldn't want to get in trouble with the medical board" or "That could jeopardize my medical license."
In other words, they'll use colloidal silver themselves, in place of prescription antibiotic drugs. And most of them that Steve has spoken with have no qualms about giving colloidal silver to their family members.
But they won't use it on their patients or even recommend its usage, out of an ingrained fear of the medical bureaucrats.
Big Pharma’s Coming Silver-Based Drugs
Hopefully, the news stories coming out about Big Pharma now developing silver-based drugs will change all of that for the better.

Maybe when medical practitioners see that Big Pharma is capitalizing on silver’s well-known infection-fighting powers, they’ll be more outspoken about their usage of colloidal silver.
Maybe they’ll even start recommending it to their patients!
Hypocrisy and Conspiracy
But I wouldn’t count much on it, since the medical bureaucrats in the FDA and in other similar government agencies worldwide are still at war with colloidal silver.
And why are the medical bureaucrats so fired up against colloidal silver, when the medical community itself is developing new silver-based drugs?
It’s because these over-bearing governmental organizations – which were originally set up to protect the public from medical fraud — are now nothing more than the enforcement arm of Big Pharma, working to make sure drugs are the only healing modalities the public is allowed.
As such, they’re working to clear the way for Big Pharma’s upcoming silver-based anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal drugs by eliminating the one and only rival to these drugs: colloidal silver.
No Competition Allowed
Big Pharma simply doesn’t want the competition from safe, natural over-the-counter products like colloidal silver.
And the medical bureaucrats are happy to oblige them by waging warfare on colloidal silver.
The world is being drawn deeper and deeper into a corporate takeover by global Big Pharma. Soon, the only way you’ll be able to heal yourself is through your local doctor. And they’ll be under the control of your health insurance company.
And you can rest assured, your local doctor won’t be offering you safe, simple, all-natural colloidal silver to cure a potentially deadly infection. Instead, he’ll be offering you a freakish silver-based Franken-drug like this one.

Just Some Human Diseases Treated By Colloidal Silver

It is well known that certain preparations of silver have germicidal properties. Silver was employed as a germicide and an antibiotic before modern antibiotics were developed. In previous centuries, users would shave silver particles into their drinking water, or submerge whole silver pieces in the drinking water, for the purpose of ingesting the silver by drinking the water. It seems likely that the practice of eating with silver utensils (i.e., silverware) resulted from a belief in the healthful properties of silver.

There may be many reasons why administering silver suspended in solution would enhance an individual’s health. It is possible that such a solution operates to inhibit the growth of bacteria, viruses, and other unwanted organisms, as well as eradicating such existing bacteria, viruses, and other organisms. It is also possible that a solution of silver can have an anti-inflammatory effect, sufficient to reduce symptoms of asthma.

The present invention describes the use of a silver composition in water to treat certain human ailments. An embodiment of the invention is a silver composition comprising small particles of silver which comprise an interior of metallic silver and an exterior of ionic silver which particles are suspended in water. A preferred embodiment of the invention is a silver composition comprising particles of silver wherein more than 50% of the number of particles are less than 0.015 micrometers in size and the particles are colloidally suspended in water.

The 10 ppm silver composition of the present invention was tested and found to be both bacteriostatic and bactericidal for all organisms tested. In other studies, this composition was compared to other commercially available colloidal silver products and found to have a superior activity to all other preparations tested (data not shown). The most interesting observation was the broad spectrum that the 10 ppm silver composition possesses. The antimicrobial activity that was observed was fairly constant independent of the particular organism tested. With the exception of Streptococcus faecalis and Streptococcus aureus (which had MIC values of 10 ppm and 5 ppm, respectively), MIC values ranged between 1.25 ppm and 2.5 ppm for both gram positive and gram negative organisms. The MBC values behaved similarly with values ranging from 1.25 ppm to 5 ppm with the exception of Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus gordonii, and Streptococcus faecalis (which all had MBC values of 10 ppm). The data suggest that 10 ppm silver embodiment of this invention exhibits an equal or broader spectrum of activity than any one antibiotic tested. Antibiotics generally have restricted antibacterial spectra limited to susceptible organisms, but as the data demonstrate, the silver composition of the present invention is equally effective against both gram positive and gram negative organisms. The data suggest that with the low toxicity associated with silver, in general, and the broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity of this silver composition, this preparation can be effectively used as an alternative to antibiotics.

How Long Has Silver Been Used As A Medicine?

Silver Has Been Used in Medicine Since 69 B.C.

"The antimicrobial effects of silver (Ag) have been recognized for thousands of years. In ancient times, it was used in water containers (Grier 1983) and to prevent putrefaction of liquids and foods.

In ancient times in Mexico, water and milk were kept in silver containers (Davis and Etris 1997).

Silver was also mentioned in the Roman pharmacopoeia of 69 b.c. (Davis and Etris 1997)."

National Institute of Health: Proving the Benefits of Colloidal Silver (For Breast Cancer)

Carefully read this website and look at the graphs: 

Particularly, note these sections:


Colloidal silver has been used as an antimicrobial and disinfectant agent. However, there is scarce information on its antitumor potential. The aim of this study was to determine if colloidal silver had cytotoxic effects on MCF-7 breast cancer cells and its mechanism of cell death.


MCF-7 breast cancer cells were treated with colloidal silver (ranged from 1.75 to 17.5 ng/mL) for 5 h at 37°C and 5% CO2 atmosphere. Cell Viability was evaluated by trypan blue exclusion method and the mechanism of cell death through detection of mono-oligonucleosomes using an ELISA kit and TUNEL assay. The production of NO, LDH, and Gpx, SOD, CAT, and Total antioxidant activities were evaluated by colorimetric assays.


Colloidal silver had dose-dependent cytotoxic effect in MCF-7 breast cancer cells through induction of apoptosis, shown an LD50 (3.5 ng/mL) and LD100 (14 ng/mL) (*P < 0.05), significantly decreased LDH (*P < 0.05) and significantly increased SOD (*P < 0.05) activities. However, the NO production, and Gpx, CAT, and Total antioxidant activities were not affected in MCF-7 breast cancer cells. PBMC were not altered by colloidal silver.


The overall results indicated that the colloidal silver has antitumor activity through induction of apoptosis in MCF-7 breast cancer cell line, suggesting that colloidal silver might be a potential alternative agent for human breast cancer therapy.
Colloidal silver is a common substance used by the Mexican people for disinfecting foods and water for their consumption, and at this time there is not a report on potential secondary effects related to this treatment; this also agreed with a recent study in mice performed in our laboratory, where colloidal silver was provided in the water at 10- and 50-fold higher concentrations than the recommended by the manufacturer during one year without finding any alterations in the evaluated parameters (fertility, birth, and tumors development)

There you have it folks.. Colloidal Silver = positive results for breast cancer. Google searches reveal HUNDREDS more testimonials bycolloidal silver users with regards to other types of cancers and illnesses.

DAILY MAIL: “Silver bullet for cancer: Metal can kill some tumours better than chemotherapy with fewer side effects”

"Silver can kill some cancers as effectively as chemotherapy and with potentially fewer side effects, new research claims.

Scientists say that old wives tales about the precious metal being a ‘silver bullet’ to beat the Big C could be true.

The metal already has a wide range of medicinal uses and is a common antiseptic, antibiotic and means of purifying water in the third world.

And British researchers now say that silver compounds are as effective at killing certain cancer cells as a leading chemotherapy drug, but with potentially far fewer side-effects.

They compared it to Cisplatin, currently used to treat a wide variety of cancers, but known to have harsh side effects including nausea, vomiting and even kidney damage.

Silver is used already in everyday products such as deodorant with no known side-effects, and could make for a potentially cheaper alternative to platinum-based Cisplatin.

Researchers from the University of Leeds conducted lab tests which exposed breast and colon cancer cells to various silver-based chemicals over a six day period.

Results, published in journal Dalton Transactions, showed that these silver-compounds were ‘as effective as Cisplatin’ at killing cancer with potentially fewer side effects.

While the team are still unsure about how exactly silver battles cancer, they think its effectiveness may be caused by the structure surrounding silver atoms, known as its ligand.

They think this may help release the silver ion into cells when it enters the body, killing any cancer.

Study author Dr Charlotte Willans plans to spend the next year looking closely at what effect silver has on both cancerous and healthy cells, and whether it could be a safe and effective new anti-cancer drug.

She said: 'It’s certainly an exciting discovery, although I think we have a lot of work to do in the future. It opens the doors in terms of what we can do and investigate.
'Getting these results also gives us the opportunity we need to apply for funding to take the research further.

'This could lead to a cheaper, less toxic alternative to current treatments for cancer.'
Explaining the research in greater detail, Dr Willans added: 'As many are unfortunately aware, chemotherapy can be a very gruelling experience for the patient.

'Finding effective, yet non-toxic drugs is an ongoing problem, but these preliminary results are an important step in solving it.

'Our research has looked at the structure which surrounds a central silver atom. This "shrubbery" is what determines how reactive it is and what it will interact with.

'Our research has used different types of these ligands to see which is the most effective against cancer cells."


Shining Secret That Makes Silver Precious For Your Health


Before the discovery of antibiotics, surgeons used to stitch wounds with thread woven with silver as they believed it helped to prevent infection.

Meanwhile, bandages were laced with silver in the First World War, as it was thought to help save lives. And they were right.

As shown in more than a thousand medical studies, silver has powerful antiseptic and wound-healing properties. So just what are the health secrets of this precious metal?

'Research has shown that silver is a powerful antimicrobial agent that is non-irritating and non-toxic,' says Valerie Edwards Jones, professor of microbiology at Manchester Metropolitan University. 'Recent studies have shown that silver can kill up to 650 species of pathogenic microbes.

'The metal consists of thousands of tiny silver ions,' she says. 'These prevent bacteria, viruses and fungi from spreading by entering the cell and deactivating proteins. The microbes cannot reproduce and die, so the spread of infection is prevented.'

There has been a resurgence of medical interest in silver, according to Prof Edwards Jones, because it effectively kills antibiotic resistant bacteria such as MRSA.


More and more silver-based products that help heal wounds and combat infection are appearing on the shop shelves. So what can silver do for you?

Silver ions kill underarm bacteria responsible for causing bad odour and are non-irritating. Try Nivea for Men's Silver Protect (£2.35,

Doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital developed socks containing silver to combat infection and blistering in a foot disease called epidermolysis bullosa. Now the socks are being marketed as they reduce foot odour ( £7.99, Crocs are launching an anti-odour sports shoe containing silver in their soles this spring.

Plasters containing silver can reduce the risk of infection and speed healing. Try Boots Advanced First Aid Faster Healing Hydrocolloid Plasters (£3.99 for 16,

Carex has just launched an antibacterial handwash containing silver. Carex Bacteria Protect (£1.38), from pharmacies and supermarkets nationwide.

Pro Colloidal Silver's atomiser (£13.95 for 250ml) is a solution of colloidal silver which acts as a non-irritating disinfectant when sprayed on to skin or wounds (
In 2007, the NHS spent more than £23million on silver dressings for leg ulcers and the Health Protection Agency has recommended that silver-coated catheters be introduced for the prevention of urinary tract infections.

Indeed, silver is set to be increasingly added to medical equipment and hospital furniture as a way of preventing hospital-based infections.

'Research with the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust has found that silver, incorporated in the surfaces of hospital equipment furniture, can reduce bacterial levels by 99 per cent,' says Dr Richard Hastings, microbiologist for BioCote, a Wolverhampton company that makes silver-based medical products.

'This, in turn, cuts infection risk from superbugs such as MRSA, E. coli and salmonella.'

Silver is also emerging as an effective tool for the treatment of skin conditions, burns and wounds.

'Silver dressings are now widely used to aid wound healing. In the treatment of burns, where there is a high risk of irritation and infection, it has been very successful,' says Prof Edwards Jones.

'Silver could also combat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis – topical cream containing one per cent silver can suppress the kind of inflammation found in these allergic skin conditions.'

And silver may also one day be used as an internal antibiotic-In a study at the University of Texas, silver particles killed 100 per cent of the HIV virus within three hours. It also killed the flu virus as well as the antibiotic resistant superbug, MRSA.

However, more research needs to be conducted for the internal use of silver to be considered safe. 'A side effect when taken internally, is that you can develop blue discolouration beneath the skin,' says Prof Edwards Jones.

' Researchers would need to know more about this and any other adverse effects before it is used in this way.'

Jamaicans Are Learning About Colloidal Silver.. With GREAT Results!

This sourced from

BROWNS TOWN, St Ann:COLLOIDAL SILVER was used by doctors in the early 20th century, but after the development of more modern antibiotics, its use dwindled. Since the 1990s, however, there has been a resurgence of its use amid claims that it is a cure-all.

Colloidal silver is now in Jamaica and several residents who have used the product are reporting amazing health benefits, dubbing it the miracle water.

Among them is 56-year-old Norman Campbell, popularly know as Boy Blue, of Standfast district in Browns Town, St Ann. Campbell told The Gleaner that he had an enlarged prostate, but after taking the water in prescribed doses for three months, the problem went away.

Tzdhne Ishigyhd, a Rastafarian who lives in the Corporate Area, said she is a lupus survivor and since using colloidal silver, the disease has gone into remission.

Another woman, Erna Hunter of Steer Town, St Ann, said the miracle water has lowered her blood sugar level, got rid of pain in her legs, and got rid of her sinus-related problems.

Startling responses..

Devon Hall markets the product from Browns Town, St Ann. He told The Gleaner he was introduced to it while he was living in London.

In 1995, while I was living in London my wife suffered with allergies and both of us had chronic sinus problems a gentleman from Iran introduced it to me. So we ordered two bottles and we took it, and since then, from 1995 to date, the problem has not reoccurred, Hall said.

In 2010, he started bottling the product locally, and the responses have been startling.

Persons have used the product and have returned to Hall with the news that their problems conditions such as enlarged prostate, arthritis, Type II diabetes, lupus, chronic sinusitis, ear infections, yeast infections, among several others are no more.

When The Gleaner caught up with Campbell, he spoke about his experience.

Mi did have a prostate problem: Mi prostate did swell. Mi did sick and inna di hospital. I was to operate on it in January this year, Campbell related.

He said after being discharged from the hospital, he had to keep wearing a catheter because he couldnt pass his urine naturally. He wore it for a year.

But late last year, something happened that changed his life forever: He met Hall, who introduced him to colloidal silver. He decided to try it. This was around October.

On January 17, five days before the scheduled operation at the St Anns Bay Hospital, and three months after he started taking the product, the catheter fell out.

Mi get scared and rush to hospital, Campbell said. The doctor checked me and say the prostate shrink back! Is just God and the water wha mi drink!

Prior to that, he said the pain associated with the enlarged prostate had disappeared. And it control mi sugar because Im diabetic. I recommend this to the whole world!

According to Ishigyhd: I started taking the colloidal silver earlier this year. I knew about it before but didnt know where to get it. I was still having symptoms of the lupus rash and a stubborn joint pain but I feel good now! They (doctors) tried to prescribe steroids, but I didnt like that, so the colloidal silver came along and speeded up the process.

Hunter said because of the pain in her feet, she could hardly walk at times. She is diabetic and also suffers from sinusitis.

At nights, I used to cough a lot because of the sinus, Hunter said.

She was introduced to the product by her daughter, who had heard about it. Hunter bought a bottle in January and within two to three weeks, she saw results.

The sinus gone, the pain gone, mi sugar (level) way down. I can walk go anywhere now because my feet dont hurt anymore. Its really good!

With all the positive feedback that Hall has been getting from the product, he was quick to point out that he was not a doctor nor pretending to be one.

Many people, since they have tried it, they have come back and say yes, it has made a difference in their lives. Its like a gift sent from God, Hall stated.

Silver Makes Antibiotics Thousands of Times More Effective

Like werewolves and vampires, bacteria have a weakness: silver. The precious metal has been used to fight infection for thousands of years — Hippocrates first described its antimicrobial properties in 400 bc — but how it works has been a mystery. Now, a team led by James Collins, a biomedical engineer at Boston University in Massachusetts, has described how silver can disrupt bacteria, and shown that the ancient treatment could help to deal with the thoroughly modern scourge of antibiotic resistance. The work is published today in Science Translational Medicine, and as you well know silver is the key component in Colloidal Silver.

“Resistance is growing, while the number of new antibiotics in development is dropping,” says Collins. “We wanted to find a way to make what we have work better.”

Collins and his team found that silver — in the form of dissolved ions — attacks bacterial cells in two main ways: it makes the cell membrane more permeable, and it interferes with the cell’s metabolism, leading to the overproduction of reactive, and often toxic, oxygen compounds. Both mechanisms could potentially be harnessed to make today’s antibiotics more effective against resistant bacteria, Collins says. 

Resistance is futile
Many antibiotics are thought to kill their targets by producing reactive oxygen compounds, and Collins and his team showed that when boosted with a small amount of silver these drugs could kill between 10 and 1,000 times as many bacteria. The increased membrane permeability also allows more antibiotics to enter the bacterial cells, which may overwhelm the resistance mechanisms that rely on shuttling the drug back out.

That disruption to the cell membrane also increased the effectiveness of vancomycin, a large-molecule antibiotic, on Gram-negative bacteria — which have a protective outer coating. Gram-negative bacterial cells can often be impenetrable to antibiotics made of larger molecules.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer…

“Two years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and my doctor told me that without chemotherapy and radiation treatments I would have about four months to live.

I began taking the Colloidal Silver and my PSA went from 68 to .04.

When I went back to see my Doctor he said that he must have misdiagnosed and referred me to another doctor who said I was fine.

I am also diabetic and after taking the Colloidal Silver my blood sugar level is now much more stable.  It would shoot up to 16-17 but now it is 6.5 -7.  The only thing that I’ve taken is the Colloidal Silver, so I know it does the job for me.”

The Sick Have No Clue About This Miracle Solution

By restricting the RECIPIENT British public’s access to information about colloidal silver at the point of sale, the EFSA is effectively pronouncing a death sentence on thousands, perhaps even millions of Brits over time who will die of infectious illness because they did not know about the powerful life-saving, infection-fighting properties of this safe, natural substance, what in the hell is wrong with the people who enforce these death regulations.

It is well known that many of today’s prescription antibiotic drugs are simply no longer effective against pathogenic microorganisms and the deadly infections they can cause but one would think that there doctor would just give it to them if it really works – well they are WRONG, very WRONG!

Colloidal silver is so beneficial to human health!

Even the major news media have documented the fact that infectious microorganisms such as the deadly flesh-eating MRSA and others are growing more and more resistant to modern antibiotic drugs at the same time they deliberately fail to report on how colloidal silver ever more effective than modern antibiotics.

Some pathogens are now even resistant to vancomycin, long considered by doctors to be the antibiotic drug of last resort. And the numbers of these drug-resistant pathogens are growing higher and higher every year, killing more and more Americans – particularly the elderly and the very young who are the least able to withstand the onslaught of infectious disease!

Yet laboratory tests have demonstrated that colloidal silver can kill hundreds of infectious microorganisms – including many of the antibiotic resistant super pathogens such as MRSA – dead in their tracks!

And because colloidal silver is not a poison like modern antibiotics, the deadly microorganisms cannot grow resistant to it. Instead, science tells us that colloidal silver is a safe, natural substance that attaches itself to an enzyme receptor site on the outer shell of pathogenic microorganisms in the human body, and kills them by preventing them from “respiring.” In essence, colloidal silver smothers the deadly little critters!

We cannot let the global pharmaceutical conglomerates and their cronies in the EFSA & US FDA restrict this vital and potentially life-saving information from the world any longer, it is our responsibility to let other’s know about this!

Dr. Oz and Actress Gwyneth Paltrow Endorse Colloidal Silver

What do TV’s Dr. Oz and Hollywood glamour gal Gwyneth Paltrow have in common?
You might be surprised to learn it’s a mutual love for colloidal silver!

And now they’ve both publicly endorsed it, on The Dr. Oz Show.

TV’s Dr. Oz has publicly endorsed colloidal silver usage…again, for the third time in the past 18 months.

This time, he’s done so along with Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, author of the best-selling new natural health cookbook, It’s All Good.

I’ll tell you exactly what they said about colloidal silver in just a minute.  But first, a little background… 

“Antibacterial, Antifungal and Antiviral”

As you may remember, Dr. Oz first publicly endorsed colloidal silver usage on his television program, The Dr. Oz Show back on February 9, 2012.

During the show, he dubbed colloidal silver a great remedy for sore throats, and said other sore throat remedies don’t work as well because they don’t address the root cause of the problem, which of course, is the infection.

Then, in another episode of his show in February 2013, he introduced his viewers to his father-in-law, the world-renowned cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Gerald Lemole, M.D., and explained that his father-in-law often incurred the wrath of his fellow medical doctors by recommending natural treatments when he felt they were called for.

When Dr. Oz pressed his father-in-law for information on what kind of natural treatments he uses in his own household, Dr. Lemole replied that one of his favorites was colloidal silver, saying, “Colloidal silver is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral, and it’s really good stuff for if you feel an oncoming sore throat, or even if you have a wound.  You can spray it on your wound.”

Dr. Oz agreed with him, and even allowed his father-in-law to reach over with a pump-spray bottle of colloidal silver and playfully spray some into his throat, hitting Dr. Oz on the chin with some of the silver spray by mistake.

So twice in a one-year period Dr. Oz publicly endorsed the use of colloidal silver on his television show.

Now, on the August 29, 2013 episode of The Dr. Oz Show, both Dr. Oz and well-known actress Gwyneth Paltrow – star of numerous Hollywood films and winner of an Oscar for her performance as Lady Viola in Shakespeare in Love — heartily endorsed colloidal silver usage.Indeed, after talking about her new book on natural health cooking for a few minutes, Dr. Oz then took Gwyneth Paltrow over to an onstage display of Paltro’s four favorite natural health remedies, and asked her to explain how she uses each one.

Here’s a partial transcript of what they said, from the segment on colloidal silver:
Dr. Oz: (gesturing toward a tiny bottle of colloidal silver) The next trick is to help avoid germs.
Gwyneth Paltrow:  Yes.
Dr. Oz:  There’s actually a TON of data behind it.  Please share it with everyone.
Gwyneth Paltrow: (taking the bottle of colloidal silver and holding it up)  Okay.  Well, people think I’m insane because when I get on an airplane, when I get to my seat, I spray this all over my seat, and then under my tongue, because the research says that colloidal silver really keeps viruses away.  It’s a real viral-repellant.  So I use that a lot, especially when we’re traveling.  I spray the kid’s seats and people think “What is this crazy woman doing?”
Dr. Oz:  This actually was the first antibiotic.  It was silver.
Gwyneth Paltrow:  Was it?
Dr. Oz:  Yes.  They used to put silver coins in milk to keep the milk clean.  These are accepted therapies. And you know, we haven’t thought about it very much, because we have antibiotics.  But this is a very smart way of killing of stuff.  We actually, in our family, are crazy about squirting it in our throat.  It’s our throat spray, our everyday throat spray.   We squirt it in there, and off we go.  Do you do that too?
Gwyneth Paltrow:  Yes, absolutely.
Dr. Oz:  What do you think of the taste?
Gwyneth Paltrow:  I don’t think it’s so bad.  It’s pretty mellow.
Dr. Oz:  It’s pretty neutral.  But we have some fun home remedies for making it taste more palatable for the kids.  If you make it taste good for the kids, they actually will believe it’s something important for them.  Okay?
Gwyneth Paltrow:  That’s true!
Dr. Oz:  By the way, all of these remedies are available in health food stores.
And that was the end of the segment on colloidal silver. Yes, it was very short.  Maybe one day Dr. Oz will do a full show on the benefits of colloidal silver.  We can only hope.
But until then, we have to be thankful that a man with such a huge national following has been willing to thrust colloidal silver firmly into the limelight three times in the past 18 months, however briefly! 

Bringing Truth to Light

As you can see, Dr. Oz seemed particularly enamored of using colloidal silver as a daily throat spray for the entire family, to help keep germs away.

And Gwyneth Paltrow seemed to be more interested in using it externally, as a viral disinfectant, as well as under the tongue, as an antiviral remedy.

Of course, colloidal silver is well-known for its profound antibacterial and antiviral qualities.  Those are indeed two of the most obvious and beneficial uses of colloidal silver.

But you can learn dozens more ways people use colloidal silver to fight infection and disease – even serious diseases like MRSA and food poisoning — on the Colloidal Silver Success Stories website.

Obviously, this kind of publicity for colloidal silver from such nationally recognized celebrities and well-known natural health proponents can only be good.

And that’s particularly true since the FDA has been so adamant about keeping knowledge of colloidal silver usage suppressed by passing regulations making it illegal for colloidal silver manufacturers to tell the American public about its astonishing array of infection-fighting benefits.

So kudos to Dr. Oz and to Gwyneth Paltrow for taking a public stand on behalf of safe, natural colloidal silver, and helping bring it to the attention of the American public who  are still largely unaware of its powerful and medically documented healing and infection-fighting qualities.

To learn more about colloidal silver and its long history as a safe, natural infection-fighting agent (and to see what other top medical experts have to say about it, as well) see this article.

For those in the UK who are looking for a good reputable store to buy colloidal silver from, look no further than Pro Colloidal Silver,

Meanwhile, I’ll be back next week with another great article on colloidal silver…

Yours for the safe, sane and responsible use of colloidal silver,

Colloidal silver was ‘erased from textbooks’ because cured diseases from tuberculosis to syphilis

Two thousand, three hundred years ago, Alexander The Great was surveying his battlefield and drinking water from silver urns. He knew nothing about bacteria, but he knew that silver containers have a seemingly miraculous way of keeping water fresh.

Silver has been used for thousands of years in different forms for its health benefits. Throughout the middle ages, the wealthy gave their children silver spoons to suck upon to stave off illnesses. People have known about the benefits of silver for so long that it is incorporated into legends.

Silver is the recommended agent for killing vampires, werewolves, and various forms of the so-called undead. According to ancient legend, a silver dagger was all that a knight needed to vanquish evil.

The new history of silver is a falsified history. Silver was once used extensively by all health care practitioners as an antibiotic and anti-viral. Nothing worked better then, and nothing does now.

The F.D.A. began its crusade against silver products in the 1930’s, because silver (as a natural substance) cannot be patented; but the organization’s antibiotic and vaccine industry partners were able to patent their wares.

Under the Food and Drug Administration’s original name, The Bureau of Chemistry, its real mission was to legally protect the chemical industry by declaring toxic chemicals to be “generally recognized as safe”, and to eliminate the chemical industry’s competition through regulations.

This history has likewise been obscured greatly in most modern historical texts, but the truth can be found in materials from its early period.

Silver medicine has been erased from the textbooks, and it is seldom given mention in medical literature. The official Pharmacopeia (physician’s desk reference book) listed dozens of medicinal silver compounds prior to the mid-1930’s; but thereafter, all mention of silver disappeared.

Newer books report that it never really happened. Before the history was rewritten, silver was like the nuclear weapon of medicine. No human pathogen of any kind survived it. This was the gospel of medicine.

Pure colloidal silver is still the most comprehensive and potent antibiotic and anti-viral known that is actually safe for human consumption, and it is absolutely safe for everyone in every condition. It is natural, has no side effects, and it was killing the worst viral diseases in the 1930’s, long before it became impossible to kill viruses with medicine.

We recommend buying brand Pro Colloidal Silver.

Over the past two centuries, silver has been used by both allopathic and alternative medicine. In addition to being used for routine ailments, silver has been used effectively against some of the most notoriously hard to kill illnesses, including tuberculosis and syphilis.

It has been used as an anti-bacterial agent that was added to bandages and disinfectant sprays. It has been embedded into clothing to prevent bacteria from producing foul odors from sweat, and it has been merged into cloth that is used in burn centers.

Attempts are still being made to lace hospital counter tops with silver, to prevent the growth of bacteria. Silver-lined containers are actively being used to disinfect water in third world countries.

Silver is remarkable because it is an extremely powerful natural anti-bacterial and anti-viral agent, yet it does not impair overall health like antibiotics do. It kills viruses, bacteria, and parasites in cases wherein the parasites live in a symbiotic relationship with a bacterial agent.

This is surprisingly common, especially in the case of blood-borne parasites, such as those of U.S. bio-weapons like Lyme disease. Because of the way that silver kills with an electrical charge, no pathogen can be found or engineered to be immune to it. No life can develop an immunity to electricity.

Since the late nineteenth century, colloidal silver has been the safest and most effective way to medicate with silver. Colloidal silver is manufactured by electrically combining silver with pure water. The colloidal manufacturing process uses no chemicals.

While silver is now labeled as an alternative medicine, it was once used widely in hospitals as the premiere antiseptic and antibiotic. It is still used in hospital burn centers for its incredible ability to heal burns more rapidly than steroids. We were astounded when witnessing it eliminate a sunburn in the span of just an hour, and a burnt tongue within minutes.

Removing silver from the market was one of the first actions of the Food and Drug Administration, when it changed its name in the 1930’s. It gradually changed its name from the Bureau of Chemistry to the more publicly palatable, Food and Drug Administration.

In 1999, after a re-emergence of silver, the F.D.A. completely banned it in any form from being sold in over-the-counter health products, despite the fact that silver has safely been used as a medicine for millennia.

The devastation of the polio epidemic was largely caused by how the Food and Drug Administration suppressed silver to promote its new antibiotic and vaccine industries. By removing silver from the lists of approved medicines, it effectively removed the only treatment that reliably kills polio, which in turn unleashed the full epidemic of polio. The F.D.A. later claimed a victory over polio in boasting that the new generation of vaccines had saved us.

The agency cunningly waited until the epidemic was in its natural decline to release the vaccine, in order to ensure that people saw a connection between the vaccine’s release date and the disappearance of the disease. The public, and quite a few doctors were distracted away from the fact that silver medications were a safe treatment, which effectively kills polio quickly, as well as virtually every other virus known.

Prior to this entire smoke-and-mirrors routine, silver was recognized for doing what the establishment now claims is impossible. Had silver medicine not been stripped from the market, the polio epidemic would have never occurred.

Today’s huge vaccine and antibiotic markets would have never come into being. Silver had to go. Just to inflate the dishonest vaccine marketing even more, the F.D.A. and the American Medical Association began promoting tonsillectomies for all children at the same time, while knowing that the tonsils are the only organ in the human body that produces polio antibodies.

They needed polio to spread widely, in order to change the public’s unfavorable attitude toward vaccinations, which is exactly what happened.

The Food and Drug Administration now admits that antibiotic drugs are useless for most of the conditions for which they have been prescribed throughout the last seven decades. The common cold, flu, and the most common type of pneumonia are all now believed to be caused by viruses, for which antibiotics are useless against.

However, silver is effective against viruses, so untold people have died as a result of silver being replaced with antibiotics.

Another suppression campaign against silver began around the time of the Second World War, when germ warfare agents were being increasingly studied as the new generation of warfare.

Silver has the ability to neutralize almost every bio-weapon that has ever been created, because of how it attacks pathogens electrically. Silver will only be ineffective in cases wherein the bio-weapon is so toxic that it kills people too quickly for the silver to neutralize it, such as with ebola. Bio-weapons with that lethality are unlikely to be intentionally released, because they present too much of a risk for all parties.

Silver’s effectiveness against most bio-weapons is one of the primary reasons why silver has been suppressed and maligned so aggressively. There are groups within the U.S. Government that do not want anyone to be resistant to U.S. Military bio-weapons, so silver medications have been repressed throughout the world for the sake of a covert military weapons program that is forbidden by international laws.

If silver medicine were still being distributed officially as the top tier of medicine, then the bio-weapons program would be rendered virtually impotent, because victims could simply use colloidal silver to recover from most germ warfare agents.

How Silver Medicine is Believed to Work

There are theories about how silver works. The leading one is that silver kills bacteria and viruses electrically, which would make it impossible for pathogens to become resistant to it. Indeed, it is true that there is no evidence of pathogens developing any resistance to colloidal silver.

This hypothesis is impossible to prove (or disprove), because we cannot examine a single colloidal particle and its relation to a bacterium, or view the mechanism through which silver kills the latter.

We can merely put colloidal silver and bacteria together, and see that all of the bacteria dies rapidly.

It is believed that each particle retains an electrical (ionic) charge, and that each particle of the metal stores a charge of the same polarity. The charges ensure equal distribution of the particles throughout the solution. The theory is similar to that of magnetism, wherein the same poles of magnets are repelled by each other, and attracted only to their opposites.

There is evidence that silver interferes with copper and iron in the body, by binding with both electrically, to chemically form new metallic compounds. People who are using a large amount of colloidal silver regularly may begin to crave foods which are rich in iron, such as beef.

It is wise to satisfy these cravings, since they are caused by a deficiency of an important nutrient. Copper can be safely supplemented through the use of chlorophyll, but virtually every other oral source of copper supplementation is dangerous, because it is so trivially easy to overdose with it and cause liver damage.

Due to colloidal silver’s ability to neutralize iron, men over the age of 30 will benefit from occasional colloidal silver supplementation. Iron accumulation in the bodies of men is believed to be one of the key reasons why women live longer than men do, and excessive iron is a major contributor to heart disease in men.

The Different Silver Products

There are many different types of silver solutions, including silver nitrates, ionic silvers, colloidal silvers, silver chlorides, and silver proteins. The only completely safe medicinal silver product, and the kind that we officially recommend, is colloidal silver.

Silver nitrate is produced by the pharmaceutical industry by combining silver with nitric acid. It can damage the liver and kidneys like most pharmaceutical drugs. It is the terrible side effects of silver nitrate that the establishment often uses to justify its attacks upon colloidal silver, in more sleight-of-hand tactics.

You can buy recommended brand colloidal silver here.

Pharmaceutical silver nitrate has a long history of turning patients’ skin a bluish-gray color. Nitrates are the cancer-causing compounds that are added to meat products. In other words, the F.D.A. pushed the poisonous and carcinogenic nitrate compounds on the public again, and blamed the consequences on silver.

Ionic and colloidal silver are almost identically produced. The main difference between them is the size of the silver particles. In ionic silver, the particles are atomically small, to such a degree that even testing for their existence is difficult. It is possible that the particles in ionic silver are so small that the water itself becomes a different substance, because the silver particles are no longer completely autonomous.

The particles in colloidal silver are microscopically small, but not as small as they are in ionic silver. Ionic silver can be made using very small voltages, over extended periods of time with silver plates. Higher voltages, or decreased resistance in the water produces colloidal silver. For true colloidal or ionic silver, the water must remain pure, so the only way to reduce the resistance of the water is to heat it, which most commercial manufacturers unwisely do.

Colloidal silver is much more likely to have a color, whereas ionic silver is always clear. This is because the larger particles in the colloidal silver provide a greater surface area. Ionic silver particles are so small that they are actually smaller than the wavelengths of visible light, making the silver invisible and colorless in even high concentrations.

All colloidal silver solutions are mixtures of ionic and colloidal silver, but ionic solutions can be completely ionic. It is not possible to produce colloidal silver without also producing ionic silver.

This is analogous to a construction worker who extracts materials from a brick wall.

He might use a grinding tool that yielded only a fine powder, or he could bash the brick wall with a sledge hammer, which would yield a mixture of large chunks and fine powder. The use of higher voltages for colloidal extraction is like hammering the silver.

The larger particles that are found in colloidal silver solutions are especially beneficial for external use, including the treatment of burns. Ionic silver is useless externally, and its internal effects have never been studied by independent third parties.

Only colloidal silver and silver nitrate have been scientifically scrutinized for effectiveness, and only the colloidal variant is truly safe. Incredibly, colloidal silver is the only type which the pharmaceutical industry has never sold.

Another silver product is silver chloride. It is essentially made in the same manner as colloidal silver, but with the addition of table salt (sodium chloride). It is a cloudy liquid (often whitish) that is extremely photosensitive. Upon illumination or heating, the silver chloride solution separates into silver and chlorine. This instability makes it unsafe for human consumption. When ingested, silver chloride has a tendency to migrate to the outer tissues.

Then, when the skin is exposed to sunlight, the silver chloride will break down into silver and chlorine. This causes the bluish-gray skin discoloration that has been heavily publicized as damning evidence against silver medicine. Victims of this phenomenon often claim that they drank colloidal silver, but the addition of salt transformed it into a very different substance that was chemically unstable.

True colloidal silver compounds are much less reactive. Silver chloride has no benefits over colloidal silver, and it comes with risks. The salt is usually added to speed production time, but the same effect can be achieved with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in a much safer manner.

The addition of sodium bicarbonate will yield especially large particles, which is unwise for internal use, but the resultant solution would nevertheless be ideal for external use. It would be excellent for burn treatments and infectious wound treatments.

Silver proteins contain much larger particles than either colloidal or ionic silver, and they should never be used internally. These were formerly approved of by the F.D.A., and they were preferred by the pharmaceutical industry.

The silver particles in silver protein solutions are so large that they simply sink in the water, and the particles never stay evenly distributed without the aid of an added gelling agent.

Due to the large size of the silver particles, and the silver’s binding with proteins, there is a dramatically increased likelihood that the silver will become trapped in the fatty tissues. Therefore, these thick solutions are likely to produce the infamous bluish discoloration of the skin too.

Dishonest Silver Companies

Misinformation is being spread by most sellers of colloidal silver. Most sellers boast about colloidal silver by showcasing its long history of safe usage, but they simultaneously claim to use a proprietary process that makes their silver superior to all other silver products.

Their admitted usage of non-standard manufacturing processes means that they cannot sincerely use the safety history of colloidal silver as an example of their own product’s safety, or honestly declare that their untested and proprietary product is as effective.

If a different manufacturing process is used, then the result cannot actually be colloidal silver. There is only one way to make colloidal silver, and any other manufacturing process will yield an entirely different product. Hence, the marketing for most colloidal silver is patently dishonest from start to end.

This is not an indictment against colloidal silver itself, but its sellers tend to be morally bankrupt, and the products that they sell are potentially-dangerous frauds. Every manufacturing short-cut has consequences.

We are aware from patent applications that some companies are producing silver solutions using fermenting bacteria that is combined with silver nitrates, instead of using electricity; but we do not know exactly which silver products are manufactured using this deplorable process.

Whenever silver products are produced this way, they are inherently tainted with the dangerous nitrate compounds that the pharmaceutical silvers became infamous for.

The effects of these toxic impurities can be much more severe than mere skin discolorations. Organ damage is a known consequence of using nitrate compounds, and cancers.

Most sellers of modern colloidal silver advertise that their product contains between 10 and 20 parts per million. They probably seek this concentration due to the research of Alfred Searle. He authored the book, The Use of Colloids in Health and Disease, in 1920.

He is also the founder of Searle Pharmaceuticals. His company was respectable in its early history, and Searle was long dead before his company dishonored his memory by selling itself to Monsanto.
In his book, Searle reported that a concentration of just 20 parts per million of silver was proven to be deadly to all known pathogenic life forms, including every known virus. However, these results do not equate to the 10-20 parts per million ratings that can be found on most silver products of today. The reason is that the methods of testing have changed dramatically.

Alfred Searle used a Tyndall meter to measure how many particles of silver were present in a solution. It is a device that uses light to test for hue and reflection, which are used to determine the particle count and their size. These devices use light wavelengths as the means of measurement.

Most modern sellers of silver products instead purchase an electronic device that measures the conductivity of the finished product. The conductivity of different solutions will always vary greatly, so these meters cannot possibly do what they are advertised to do.

For example, if salt were added to the water, then it would have a different effect on the conductivity than if copper were added, because of their differing electrical properties. Yet the sellers of these meters claim that they are able to get accurate results measuring particle counts regardless of a solution’s ingredients. If salt or another electrolyte exists in the water, the conductivity of the water will increase dramatically, even whilst the number of particles will stay roughly the same.

Particle size and the temperature of the solution also effect the conductivity, which the meter has no way of determining. Even a gust of wind will give a different reading, due to the electrostatic effect upon the surface of the solution.

In the case of colloidal metals, electrically gauging the concentration is even more futile than it is for other types of solutions, because the metallic liquid is an electrolytic capacitor with a constantly changing capacitance.

Electricity cannot be used to measure the amount of metal in a solution when the surface area of the metal cannot be verified, and when the capacitance of the solution is ever-changing. It is like trying to get a consistent light measurement from a fireworks display.

The capacitive solution itself will produce its own tiny currents, and it will block currents from the meter, which makes electronic testing an exercise in absurdity. The only way to accurately measure concentration in a fluid with metallic colloids is by using light.

Thus, the parts per million rating given by most colloidal and ionic silver sellers is meaningless.

Since colloidal silver changes the color of the water, clear colloidal solutions are frequently just expensive water, regardless of any measurement that sellers purportedly get. In the case of ionic silvers, it is impossible to measure the particle count, since the particles are too small to reflect light.

TDS Meter, the de facto manufacturer of the new testing equipment, even acknowledges the uselessness of its own meters on its website, in an amusing attempt at damage control:
” …temperature changes by a tenth of a degree may increase or decrease the conductivity. Additionally, the temperature coefficient (what the reading is multiplied by to adjust for temperature differences) changes slightly depending upon the range of ppm… Even a tiny air bubble that has adhered to one of the probes could potentially affect the conductivity, and thus the reading… Electrical charges off fingers, static eletricity off clothes, etc. on the meter and lingering electrical charges in the water will affect the conductivity of the water… Plastic cups retain lingering electrical charges more than glass. If the meter touches the side of the glass or plastic, it could pick up a slight charge. If the plastic is retaining a charge, it could also affect the water… The amount of water in the sample may affect the conductivity. Different volumes of the same water may have different levels of conductivity. Displacement may affect the conductivity as well… The depth and position of the probe in the water sample may also affect the conductivity. For example, if a meter is dipped into the water, removed and then dipped into the water again, but in a different spot, the reading may change…”
The expensive methods of testing colloidal solutions that are utilized by modern laboratories are likewise grossly flawed. Flame atomic absorption spectroscopy is one of the leading laboratory methods for analyzing colloidal solutions.

It uses extreme temperatures to destroy a colloidal solution, and then observers rate the colours of the flames, in an attempt to visually gauge the metal concentration. Fire is impossible to control with the precision that is needed for a valid analysis; and of course, the test results are in the eyes of the beholder.

True Colloidal Silver

This section is intended to assist people in producing their own colloidal silver. The silver solutions sold at retailers are essentially the homoeopathic versions of colloidal and ionic silver products, which means that they are merely high-priced water.

Some of the retail products that we examined had plenty of impurities (like iron that biologically neutralizes silver), but we found very little silver. Testing was impossible in the case of ionic silvers, which may be convenient for manufacturers. At many locations, the municipal water supply will contain more silver than the fraudulent retail products.

We recommend buying brand Pro Colloidal Silver.

The majority of retail products are fake, and these bogus products are the primary reason why so many people, who are new to alternative medicine, believe that silver is ineffective. The products that retail shoppers typically buy are usually no more effective than water, because they are water. People can produce their own to ensure that it is real and of the best quality.

Manufacturing Colloidal Silver

The most important step in the production of colloidal silver is obtaining the right materials. Using distilled water is vital. Never use tap or spring water, because even minerals that would normally be beneficial can cause health problems once they are electro-chemically transformed through electrolysis.

Ensure that the water has been distilled using steam distillation, which should be written on the container. Some “distilled” water containers have, “distilled through reverse osmosis” on the label, and these labels are entirely dishonest.

True distillation uses steam to separate the water from its minerals and contaminants, whereas reverse osmosis is simply a type of pressurized filtration that does not render pure water. It is a much cheaper process, so some of the companies lie about their “distillation”.

Beware of the Food Lion brand of distilled water in particular, because our testing during the production of colloidal copper indicated that it is quite impure, even though it is labeled to have been distilled. Also, be forewarned that the formation of black chunks and other strangely-colored precipitates during the electrolysis process is an indication of water impurities.

Black is the most common color for these, because they are usually the charred carbon remnants of organic matter and bicarbonates. Some grayish chucks may form in the water. These silver particulates are actually safe and are conglomerates of larger particles.

They are especially beneficial for burns and skin infections, but they should be filtered out of the solution for internal use. A coffee filter works exceptionally well for this, and the solution may be poured through a coffee maker.

Silver particles which have not clumped remain in either a colloidal or an ionic state, and these will pass through any filter. In fact, the particles are so small that wooden spoons and plastic utensils will begin to develop a silvery appearance after several batches. Never use metal utensils. The only metals in the process should be the silver itself and the electrical connection wires.

Using chlorinated tap water is especially dangerous, because when chlorine combines with other materials, it has a tendency to form dioxin compounds. It will also produce chlorine gas during electrolysis, which was used as a chemical warfare agent during World War I.

Sodium chloride (salt) in the water will also release chlorine gas, so salt should never be added. As an important side note, tap water should never be used inside vaporizers for the same reason, because chlorine gas will be released into the air to actually worsen lung issues.

We strongly recommend that instead of obtaining silver wire, which is used for most colloidal silver manufacture, people instead use silver bullion bars (pictured). Most of the silver wire that is available comes from China, and it is simply not feasible to check every wire for impurities.

Chinese wire should be assumed to be contaminated, since this is normal with Chinese products. When referencing the purity of their metals, companies use an obscure way of gauging it. Whenever a seller of a precious metal refers to it as having a purity of 925, it equates to 92.5 percent, so the given metal would be almost 10 percent impure.

Most people will assume that a purity rating of 925 means that the metal contains only 0.925% impurities, and therefore that it would be over 99% pure. Be watchful of this gotcha. A large portion of the silver buyers seem to be ignorant of it. We recommend getting only 99.9% (written by sellers as 999) silver bullion bars.

However, modern buyers should beware even when buying “pure” silver bullion bars. It has come to our attention that the bullion market of the United States has been flooded with counterfeit bullion bars in recent years. Other countries are likely to be experiencing the same Chinese contamination problems.

To minimize the risk of buying fakes, bullion bars should never be purchased from Craig’s List, E-bay, or any other source that is not absolutely trustworthy, because the purity of the bullion is absolutely essential for health and safety reasons.

We therefore recommend that our readers attempt to purchase bullion bars from banks and other reputable institutions that service the financial market. In the not-so-distant past, bullion bars were an absolutely pure source of silver that were guaranteed to be safe, because they are regulated as an official currency.

This once meant that any attempt to sell fake bullion bars would have risked a swift law-enforcement response for counterfeiting, and a plethora of additional charges that would have gotten a man imprisoned for the rest of his life; but alas that safety net has disappeared, for the Chinese have no fear of the law.

Coins contain a variety of metals that should not be consumed, so never use silver coins for colloidal silver manufacture. High purity is vital, because most metals are extremely detrimental to the health. Silver of such extreme purity typically only contains the impurities of copper and selenium, in trace amounts.

Both of which are beneficial to health in these small quantities. In fact, both are vital nutrients. Selenium is actually used by the human body to chelate harmful metals.

To avoid any soap or chemical residues, the bullion bars should be soaked in a solution of white vinegar that is nearly saturated with salt for cleaning. They can also safely be cleaned with vodka. Finalize the cleaning by pouring distilled water over the bars.

It is not absolutely necessary to clean the silver between uses, but we do. Be advised that the silver will never look new again, regardless of the cleaning method.

People may either use three 9V batteries that are interconnected in series, or a 30V DC power supply that has a rated output of at least 3 amps (3,000 mA) to power the electrolysis. A power supply does not have to be exactly 30 volts, but it is the ideal voltage.

The range should be kept between 26 and 30 volts, which is also ideal for creating colloidal copper. Those who have no experience with electronics should opt for battery power, instead of using a DC power supply. Serious injury and fire can result from the improper use of a power supply.

The electrical danger is elevated because water is being used. For liability reasons, we must officially recommend against using a power supply, and anyone using a power supply does so at his own risk. Batteries must be interconnected, so that the positive terminal of one battery is connected to the negative terminal of another battery. When properly connected, one battery should have an unused positive pole, and the opposite battery should have an unused negative pole.

These two remaining terminals should be connected to the two pieces of silver. Most 9V batteries in the U.S. have terminals that can be used to interconnect with other 9V batteries, whereby connection wire is unnecessary for the battery to battery connections.

Never use aluminum wire for any of the connections, and we strongly recommend the use of only copper wiring, for the sake of preventing unhealthy contaminants.

To make colloidal silver, fill a completely clean glass or plastic container with distilled water. We suggest cleaning the container with vodka immediately beforehand, to remove soap residues and dust. Connect the batteries to the pieces of silver.

Most people do this with alligator clips. We usually make our connections by inserting copper wires through tiny holes in the tops of the silver bullion, and then we twist the wires for maximum hold.
Never solder the connection to the silver, and it is wise to even avoid soldering the wires to alligator clips, for solder can leach lead or cadmium into the solution if the metal components become moist. Nobody should be supplementing with lead and cadmium.

The silver bars should be partially submerged in the water, and be about an inch apart. They should never touch, and the wire connections should never enter the water. If the connectors or silver are allowed to touch, the batteries or the power supply will have a dead short.

This could cause overheating and an explosion. It could easily mean a quick death for the power supply. The electrical connections to the silver should be clearly above the water, else other metals will become infused into the solution. Nothing except for pure silver should be in contact with the water.

We recommend that all other connectors and wires be maintained at least a quarter inch above the water’s surface. We should offer one last reminder of the risks of using solder, which include the introduction of tin, lead, and cadmium into the product.

The time needed to produce colloidal silver will vary greatly, depending on the purity of water that is used, and no commercially-available water is absolutely pure. One of the first indicators that silver is combining with the water can be seen with a flashlight in a dark room.

Shining light through the water at certain angles will show what appears to be smoke coming from one of the silver plates. As time progresses, one of the silver plates will turn a flat gray color, and the other plate will blacken. Tiny bubbles may also form around the silver plates. Those producing a large batch over an extended period should gently stir the solution periodically, using a wooden or plastic spoon.

Some people can produce a quart in twenty minutes, but our own experimentation in making 2 quarts required a duration of 4 hours to reach the acceptable strength and color. Due to the fact that silver is extremely non-reactive, a slower process indicates higher purity in both the silver and the water.
Pure water and pure silver will both be very resistant to the electrolysis process. Readers may notice that many of the online manufacturing videos show colloidal silver being produced very rapidly, using silver wires that were obtained from China.

A short manufacture time indicates the presence of other, more reactive metals, and perhaps impure water too. When producing our own colloidal silver by the gallon, we add about 10 fluid ounces of existing colloidal silver to speed the production time, without effecting the quality of the resultant product.

To make the silver bars last as long as possible, the polarity should be reversed each time. This means that the silver bar that is connected to the positive (red) wire in one batch should be switched so that it is connected to negative in the next batch. Otherwise, one of the bars will rapidly erode.

If a colloidal silver solution is black, brown, or purple, then it indicates that the silver particles are abnormally large. It may also reflect the presence of impurities. The huge particle size of these products makes it debatable if these solutions can truly be called colloidal.

It is how most colloidal silvers from online sellers look. The ugly discolorations can also be caused by heating during production, or from the use of high voltages, which are common shortcuts taken by the commercial manufacturers. We recommend that such solutions be avoided, except as a last resort.

These products are significantly less effective internally than properly produced colloidal silver, and the abnormally large silver particles are more likely to get forever trapped in the tissues.

Most commercial sellers have proprietary processes for production, which cannot be trusted, and there is no way to know what is really in their products. We do know from the color of their products that they are not selling true colloidal silver.

Properly Medicating with Colloidal Silver

High quality colloidal silver that is of the appropriate medicinal strength (25 P.P.M.) looks slightly yellowish in a brilliant white container. Newly-made batches of weak colloidal silver will instead have a slight silvery tint when first made. Some batches turn yellow about a day after production.

The strength of a colloidal silver solution can be judged by shining a laser pointer through the solution, whilst the silver is being infused. A red laser pointer is best, because the beam is least visible under normal conditions.

As the silver solution gets stronger, it will become possible to see the red beam clearly through the water. As the solution becomes more concentrated, the laser beam will become more solid, and silver particles will sparkle in the beam like glitter.

We recommend against making stronger concentrations for most uses, because silver appears to create iron deficiencies with extreme dosages. We do not truly know if the colloidal silver causes the increased excretion of iron, or if it simply neutralizes usable iron by bonding with it, or both.
We believe that it is both. Either way, there are no real human toxicity issues, but the proper iron level should be nevertheless maintained for optimal health.

During times of sickness, we recommend using 3 fluid ounces of colloidal silver, at least twice a day. Best results can be achieved by holding the colloidal silver in the mouth for a minute before swallowing it. This technique allows some silver to penetrate through the walls of the mouth, and directly into the bloodstream.

Expect for it to have a metallic aftertaste. Due to the wide variety of people who will read this, we have made the recommended silver dosage very conservative, but some patients measure their dosages in cups.

Storage of Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver may be stored in either plastic or glass. The ideal plastic is the type that is used to store milk. It is high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and it can be identified in the U.S. by a number “2” embossed into the bottom of the container.

It is a very non-reactive plastic, but the microscopic silver particles may stain it. Of course, many people prefer to store their colloidal silver in glass, due to their concerns about no plastic being perfect. Such individuals usually choose an amber-colored glass container, as a way to prevent excessive light exposure.

Colloidal silver should be stored at room temperature, and never allowed to freeze. The silver will coagulate into visible chunks at the bottom when frozen, which will make the solution much less effective and create the possibility that it will cause argyria.

Therefore, an interesting experiment to verify the presence of silver in the solution is to freeze a small amount of it, and then examine the clumped silver at the bottom of the container after thawing. If a choice must be made between storage in a hot or cold environment, the warmer environment should always be chosen.

Pure colloidal silver should not experience any of the serious breakdown problems that silver chloride solutions do, whenever there is light exposure; but we nevertheless store our colloidal silver in a dark location, because darkness might somewhat help to keep it better preserved.

A good batch of colloidal silver should last for years, because the silver itself is a powerful preservative. In fact, we use it as a substitute for water in risky foods that use uncooked ingredients, such as raw eggs (for mayonnaise production). It is used to ensure that all of the bacteria is dead. A minute of blending with colloidal silver is enough to ensure that no bacteria survives.

Patients Experiencing the Blues

The medical establishment and the big media organizations have demonized colloidal silver by parading people who developed a condition known as argyria. It is a bluish-gray discoloration of the skin that is reported to be permanent.

However, every case that we investigated involved products that were not actually colloidal silver, and most cases were the result of pharmaceutical-industry silver products. Our exhaustive research could not find a single instance of argyria that was caused by pure colloidal silver. The pharmaceutical silver solutions are the most likely to cause it.

Regulators proclaim that the people who turned blue are demonstrative of silver’s toxicity, but the opposite is actually true. It proves that even after a person has become so incredibly saturated with silver from 20+ years of misuse that he turns blue, he still does not suffer from any real health problems.

The blue patients are actually healthier than normal. Take for comparison: a patient who consumes enough aspirin to turn white. Actually, we cannot use this example, because within 20 minutes of such extreme aspirin consumption, the patient would be dead from internal bleeding — long before he ever began changing color.

The National Institutes of Health documented one case of argyria that occurred when a man started producing his own silver solution, and consumed 16 fluid ounces of it, three times each day, for a period of years. He measured his silver to contain a whopping 450 parts per million, which is 22 times stronger than is normal.

This regimen gave his body the same concentration of silver as if he had consumed 1,056 fluid ounces of standard colloidal silver (8.25 gallons per day). The extreme concentration means that the silver had to be discolored and impure, and it almost certainly had salt added.

Otherwise, it would have taken him days to manufacture each day’s batch at such concentrations, so we can be certain that he was using silver chloride instead of colloidal silver. It is a reflection of the stupidity of turning to pharmaceutical manufacturing processes for the practice of alternative medicine, and then using the terrible results to prove that alternative medicine is bad. It is what we see most often in the politics of silver.

The most popularized case of argyria is that of Paul Karason, the so-called Smurf Man. He internally consumed large doses of a homemade silver solution for years, and then began also using silver externally on his face. He too made his silver solution using salt, which resulted in silver chloride.

Despite it being a completely different substance, he refers to his solution as “colloidal silver”, as does the media. We believe that after he noticed some slight skin discoloration, he actually increased his dosage, because he had found a way to become famous and profit from being a freak.

He admits publicly to using excessive amounts of his silver chloride both internally and transdermally, daily for 14 years. He still continues to use it, despite his obvious saturation. He further admits that his face turned blue before the rest of his body; and yet he continued to use both silver products, despite the color change.

Due to Karason’s self-inflicted and intentional cosmetic alteration, the F.D.A. has been using him in a public relations campaign that is intended to convince the public that colloidal silver is dangerous. We can only speculate about how much the media networks and the F.D.A. have paid him for his appearances.

Not one death or serious side effect has ever been recorded for pure colloidal silver, during the century of its existence. There are, however, plenty of horror stories from people who used the chemically-altered silvers that were made with various proteins, salts, or fermented bacteria.
