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

Earth-Moon-View-From-Space(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."

Too much silver may be toxic to humans, so 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

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
tract. 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 yea

Why Won’t Doctors Admit to Colloidal Silver Usage?

Be quiet, my friend. You can't tell my secrets.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 Cured 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!

miracleThis 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

silver-makes-antibiotics-thousands-of-times-more-effective_1Like 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…

Testimonial“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

article-0-1940DFBC000005DC-375_634x501What 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,
