Big Business Moves Into Silver-Based
Anti-Microbial Products In A BIG Way!


While the medical bureaucrats in the FDA and FTC continue to harass vendors of colloidal silver who dare to advertise its astonishing infection-fighting qualities, big business is now being allowed to use silver as a broadspectrum anti-microbial agent in a wide variety of commercial products. What's more, they are freely making the very same advertising claims for silver's infection-fighting benefits that have landed many colloidal silver vendors in hot water with the authorities!

Three years ago we documented the fact that while the medical bureaucrats in the FDA and FTC were unleashing a withering harassment campaign against small, independent vendors of colloidal silver for merely mentioning its powerful infection-fighting benefits in their advertising, they were simultaneously getting ready to give big business free reign to tout silver's well-known antimicrobial qualities.

While the hypocrisy of the medical bureaucrats apparently knows no bounds, it is nevertheless fascinating to see the astonishing number of silver-based products they now allow big business to sell for infection-fighting purposes. This of course represents a powerful testimony to what we have been saying all along silver is simply the most phenomenally effective natural infection-fighting agent on the face of the earth, and big business and their friends in the medical bureaucracy know it. For this reason, this issue of Colloidal Silver Update will document for you some of the many fascinating ways in which silver is now being used by big business as a natural antimicrobial agent.

Silver Ions Used By Big Business to Make Antimicrobial Clothing

Many companies are now producing silver-based antimicrobial clothing and fabric products including shoes, socks, sportswear, dish rags, facial towels, sleeping bags and more. This has been made possible, in part, by a company called Noble Fiber Technologies (NFT) of Clarks Summit, PA which developed and patented a process by which nylon fused with silver ions is woven into a variety of fabrics. The patented process is called X-Static®. Following is a brief list of new, silver-based fabric products using the X-Static® process, currently being offered by U.S. companies, and marketed for their antibacterial and antifungal properties. Note that the FDA and FTC apparently accept the antimicrobial claims these companies make about their silver-based fabric products, and do not harass them. Yet the very same claims made by colloidal silver vendors are automatic grounds for threats, fines, and even property seizures by the medical bureaucrats!
  • Acor Shoes - A specialty manufacturer of shoes for diabetics. Silver fiber is impregnated into these shoes to prevent foot fungus and bacteria from growing. This is extremely important to diabetics as they are prone to serious foot infections such as gangrene, which can result in amputation of the foot or limb if infection is allowed to set in.

  • Marmot - A major U.S. manufacture of outdoor equipment. Silver fiber is used by this company to prevent bacteria and fungi from growing in their special line of down sleeping bags and cold-weather jackets, as well as cross country ski clothing, hiking clothing and cycling Jerseys.

  • Spyder Gear - A major U.S. manufacturer of sports apparel. This company now weaves silver fiber into a wide variety of sports apparel to provide sustained antibacterial and antifungal action during prolonged sporting events such as cycle races or cross country skiing.

Lance Armstrong's Silver-Impregnated Cycling Suit

Indeed, famous sports cyclist Lance Armstrong, six-time USPS Tour De France champion, wore a suit woven with antimicrobial X-Static® silver/nylon fabric in his most recent Tour De France win. According to Dr. Jeff Spencer, a former champion cyclist who served as the chiropractor for the USPS Cycling Team, this special suit was designed to "provide both antimicrobial action and the ability to promote healing while allowing the cyclist to remain active on his bicycle, both very important considerations."

Other companies and famous brand names using the new antimicrobial X-Static® silver/nylon fabric in their products include Lands End, Browning, Medalist, Thermo Gear the list goes on and on. What's more, Noble Fiber Technologies has also developed a medical version of their X-Static® silver/nylon technology for use in wound dressings. It is called X-Static® Silverseal, and it has been licensed for use in a wide variety of fabric products commonly used in hospitals and laboratories. What's more, it was recently announced that Johnson & Johnson Wound Management will serve as the exclusive global marketing agent for a host of new silver-based wound care products being developed by Advanced Medical Solutions Group using the X-Static® silver/nylon technology. These products will be distributed under Johnson & Johnson's SilverCel™ brand later this year.

Microban is another leading company that offers a similar antimicrobial fabric product line everything from silver-impregnated towels and rags, to dust and facial cloths designed to inhibit growth of bacteria, mold, mildew and fungus. Magnum Boots, a well-known manufacturer of footwear, is now using silver fiber in their rugged work boots and outdoor footwear to help prevent foot fungus and bacteria from growing, which helps eliminate athlete's foot, toenail fungus and bacterial-related foot infections for workers and outdoorsmen. And a company called Hot Chilly's is now marketing a full line of silver fiber-impregnated women's bras. (Yes, you read that right women's bras!)

Silver Ions Used By Big Business to Purify Drinking Water

Today, almost every quality name brand water filter in the world uses some form of silver to prevent bacterial growth Pur, Brita, Doulton, Hydrotech to name just a few. Silver is the only natural substance that has been proven safe and effective for long-term use in preventing microbial contamination in water filters.

Even NASA uses silver ions to maintain the water purity aboard the Space Shuttle and International Space Station. This technology was originally developed by NASA at the very beginning of manned space flights, back in the 1960s.

At that time, scientists from NASA and the Garrett Corporation Air Research Division began a joint project to develop a water purification system for the Apollo spacecraft. This unit had to be small, lightweight and consume as little power as possible. They produced a purifier that was slightly larger than a pack of cigarettes and weighed only nine ounces. The device used electrolysis to dispense silver ions into the spacecraft's water supply, successfully killing off any bacteria. If this device sounds familiar, it should. It can be considered the forerunner of the common low-voltage DC current colloidal silver generator in widespread use today by savvy consumers who want to produce their own high-quality colloidal silver quickly and inexpensively!

NASA's ingenuity at controlling microbial contamination in the Apollo spacecraft's water supply opened the doors for safer methods of controlling water pollutants here on Earth. NASA held the patent on the device, but authorized a company in Cornelia, Georgia, called Carefree Clearwater, to manufacture this device for civilian use. This lead to the creation of a whole new industry based on the power of silver ions to eradicate microbial contaminants. Since that time, numerous companies have developed their own version of NASA's silver ion generator. Today, it is the world's #1 selling product for microbial control in swimming pools, hot water spas, decorative fountains, ponds, manufacturing processes, and evaporative water cooling towers.

According to Carefree Clearwater, their silver ion-based purification systems have been installed in thousands of residential and resort pools and spas across the country, as well as in numerous YMCA facilities and at many major universities including the University of Virginia, the University of Texas, Purdue University, and Wake Forest University. What's more, the large decorative fountains at Disney World, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, as well as Kellogg's Cereal City in Battle Creek, Michigan, are kept sanitized with Carefree Clearwater silver-ion based purifiers. Even the largest decorative fountain in the world the Fountain of Wealth in Suntec City, Singapore uses this amazing silver-based sanitation technology. Furthermore, the Cincinnati Zoo is tapping this technology for its sea lion tank, walrus pool, and arctic bird exhibit. Zoo Atlanta is utilizing it to keep the water sanitized in its tiger and hoof stock exhibits. And Alligator Adventure in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is employing it in its habitat for UTAN, the largest crocodile ever to be exhibited in the United States.

Outside of recreational use, the NASA-developed electrolytic silver ionizer has proven to be invaluable for industry, especially in the areas of heating, venting, and air conditioning, and wherever cooling towers are relied upon to remove heat from a stored water source so that the water can be re-circulated and reused, or safely discharged to a natural body of water like a river. To be re-circulated, the water must remain uncontaminated by microbes, which is where the Carefree Clearwater silver-based purification system comes in.

Silver Ions Used By Big Business in Mexico and Europe, Too!

In Mexico, as well as Central American countries, people rely on a unique product called Microdyn which is simply silver colloids suspended in gelatin to purify their water. Just a few drops of this amazing silver-based substance sanitizes the water in minutes. In fact, since 1955 the Mexican government has been using Microdyn to keep its drinking water germ-free!

Only recently, in another development, a company called NVID International, Inc. of Clearwater, Florida, announced the successful completion of a study on the use of ionic silver to eliminate microbial contamination in a municipal drinking water system in Celaya, Mexico. The company's silver disinfection system was installed on one of the 65 wells serving the city's residents. The system injected 10 parts per billion of ionic silver into the drinking water distribution grid. Within 24 hours of installing the system, the fecal coliform count (a count of microorganisms from human or animal waste, frequently accompanied by disease-causing pathogens) was brought to zero, and it remained at zero for the next eighteen days. The silver-based disinfection system was then taken off-line, and the fecal coliforms returned within two days. When the system was reconnected, the fecal coliform count once more dropped to zero within 24 hours, and the count was kept at zero for the next 45 consecutive days while the system was in operation.

NVID's President, David Larson stated, "This test was very significant due to the low levels of ionic silver used in the disinfection. In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended the allowable levels of silver present in drinking water be set at 100 ppb, and most of the Company's systems are designed to inject ionic silver well below the limit, at a rate of 60 ppb. Proving efficacy at only 10 ppb is significant in that cost comparisons with traditional disinfectants such as chlorine become more favorable and the initial capital outlay for end users is greatly reduced."

According to Jeffrey Ellis, Adjunct Professor of Chemistry at Florida International University in Miami, the use of silver as a water treatment by business and industry is on the rise. In the year 2000, about 5.3 million ounces of silver were used for water treatment. In 2002 it was 6.16 million ounces. In 2004 it was 7.1 million ounces. And a projected 8.1 million ounces of silver will be used for water disinfection purposes by 2006. Who is using all of that silver to prevent microbial contamination of water? According to Vorigen, Inc., a company that provides technology for the commercial use of silver-based water purification systems, at least some of it is being used by American soft drink bottlers! They claim that more than half of American soft drink bottling companies now use silver to sterilize water. What's more, according to Vorigen, the global community is now rapidly moving toward using silver as a safe and effective treatment for drinking water worldwide. Indeed, a recent draft of a new European Union Drinking Water Standard has removed any upper limit for silver in drinking water, following the World Health Organization's Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality, which states, "It is unnecessary to recommend any health-based guideline for silver as it is not hazardous to human heath."

Silver Ions Used by Big Business to Help Fight the Spread of Deadly Contagions

The recent outbreaks of highly contagious drug resistant illnesses such as SARS, Avian (Bird) Flu, and other deadly pathogens, as well as the ever-increasing threat of bio-terrorism, has spawned a new strategy for dealing with these contagions a new way of thinking. The idea is to use silver ion-based technology to reduce the spread of contagious microorganisms through continuous decontamination of all surface areas that humans may come into contact with. In short, they are sterilizing contact surfaces by coating or impregnating them with silver ions!

The idea of sterilizing contact surfaces is nothing new, of course. There are dozens of antiseptic cleaning products that do a very good job at killing germs on contact. The problem is, this protection only lasts as long as the product is present on the contact surface. Most antiseptic products used for cleaning surfaces break down quickly, and therefore must be reapplied frequently throughout the day in order to maintain their germ-killing effect. Any surface that has been cleaned can become re-contaminated with dangerous microbes within a very short period of time if the antiseptic cleaning product is not re-applied over and over again throughout the day. Microbes can be carried to contact surfaces on something as innocuous as a small breeze from a person walking by…or a sneeze or cough that sends billions of microbes into the air in a room. It is for this very reason that hospitals have large full-time cleaning crews that are constantly cleaning and sterilizing doorknobs, counter tops, floors etc. Yet hospitals are nevertheless among the most contaminated public buildings in the world. Microbes such as the deadly staphylococcus (staph), have made hospitals their favorite stomping grounds. In short, hospitals have been fighting a losing battle for years.

But now, hospitals have a new tool a new silver ion-based technology has been developed by a company based in Wakefield, MA, called AgION Technologies. They have created a new process by which silver ions are bonded with a mineral crystal known as zeolite, which is then permanently applied to contact surface areas such as counter tops, door knobs, equipment handles, floor mats virtually anything that is frequently touched by humans. The product is called AgION, which simply means "silver ions." How this technology works against germs, viruses and fungi is absolutely fascinating. The silver-laden zeolite carries out an ongoing process called "ion-exchange." Ambient moisture in the air has sodium ions in it. The zeolite will give up (exchange) one silver ion for every sodium ion. This results in a slow release of the silver-ions from the silver-zeolite coating, which can last for as long as 50 years or more. The constantly released silver ions are then attracted (via opposite electric charges) towards bacteria, fungi and other microbes, and the microbes are thereby killed upon contact. AgION Technologies licensed this product to AK Steel of Middletown, Ohio, which now manufactures antimicrobial-coated steel that is used on hospital and laboratory counter tops, as well as in commercial applications such as refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, dryers, and other major appliances which can harbor microbes. Their motto is "Sales grow where microbes don't."

Even more interesting, on July 17, 2002, AgION Technologies received the nod from the FDA to use their proprietary silver-impregnation technique in toothbrush bristles to help stop the growth of bacteria, which is a leading cause of gum-related infections and tooth loss. (Next to an un-cleaned can opener blade, the toothbrush is probably the most germ-laden implement in any household!) Although we have not yet found any silver-impregnated toothbrushes in stores, we have found one manufacturer named Safe/Ad™ which uses the very same silver-impregnation technology to produce an antimicrobial toothbrush cap to keep your toothbrush disinfected while traveling, as well as an antimicrobial kitchen cutting board and an antimicrobial pad that attaches to the lower cradle of your telephone to keep your telephone mouthpiece bacteria-free, 24 hours a day! But watch for silver-impregnated toothbrushes soon; the word is that a number of manufacturers will be jumping on this opportunity in 2005 because they believe consumers will fork out up to $12 apiece or more for these silver-laden products! (Meanwhile, if you make your own colloidal silver with a home colloidal silver generator, there is no need to wait for silver-impregnated toothbrushes. You can simply dip your current toothbrush into a tiny amount of silver solution each night to destroy potentially harmful microbes. Your cost? Only pennies per month compared to $10 or $15 for a silver-laced toothbrush.)

AgION silver-coating technology is now being used in a wide variety of other products as an antimicrobial agent. For example: Food, medical and pharmaceutical packaging will soon be silver-impregnated to prevent contamination of the contents. Bathroom fixtures, water faucets and spouts for use in houses, offices, hospitals and laboratories are already being silver-impregnated to reduce the spread of microbial contamination. What's more, Avant water coolers now use this technology to prevent microbial contamination of the stored water. And it is even turning up in food and beverage processing equipment where it is relied upon to keep bacterial counts low during the processing of food solids and liquids. And there is much, much more! Indeed, the list of products utilizing AgION silver technology as an antiseptic/antimicrobial agent keeps growing and growing. Wherever the eradication of harmful bacteria, fungi, virus and other pathogens is needed, you can rest assured AgION is either already there, or is on its way soon.

In a similar vein, although not available for household use yet, McGill AirFlow of Groveport, Ohio, produces a trade marked antimicrobial-coated steel paneling called SilverGuard for use in the heating and air conditioning ducts of hospitals, offices, schools and other public buildings. According to the company, "SilverGuard antimicrobial-coated steel duct work…has been proven to be successful in controlling the spread and growth of many types of bacteria, mold, mildew and other fungi." This, by the way, may help greatly in preventing the spread of anthrax through public buildings during a terrorist attack. You can be sure that the postal service and other government authorities are looking into this brand new silver-based technology even as you read this report!

Silver Refrigerators and Washing Machines? You Bet!

According to a recent press release from the well-known Samsung Corporation of Korea, they will soon be introducing major household appliances that will utilize their new "Silver Nano Technology." Samsung claims that their proprietary and patented new silver-based anti-bacterial technology will soon be found in over 55 new models of washing machines, refrigerators and air conditioners.

According to Samsung, Silver Nano Technology "naturally kills 99.9% of the bacteria, mold and germs that can grow and accumulate in appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and even air-conditioners." They claim that their patented "Silver Wash" technology, which allows their washing machines to release a cascade of silver ions during the final rinse cycle, is the first technology to keep clothes completely bacteria-free for up to 30 days after washing!

Here is a brief excerpt from a recent Samsung press release describing this phenomenal new innovation:

New Delhi, March 4, 2005: Samsung India Electronics, a leader in consumer technology products, today announced the launch of an entire range of "Silver Nano Health System," home appliances. Over 55 new models of washing machines, refrigerators and air conditioners will be available with sophisticated silver-technology that minimizes the spread of bacteria in the home.

…Samsung chose to use silver because it is a safe and healthy method of sanitizing and deodorizing surfaces that come in contact with food and skin. "Silver Nano technology will help prevent bacteria from growing in your washing machines, refrigerators and air conditioners," said H. C. Ryu, Director Sales and Marketing, Samsung South West Asia. "The interior of Samsung refrigerators and filters of air conditioners are now coated with nano-size silver that brings anti-bacterial and deodorization benefits, ensuring that the clothes you wear, the air you breathe and food you eat are fresh and safe for your health and the environment," Mr. Ryu added.

…With over $10 million invested in R&D, Silver Nano is the first technology that combines the disinfectant and antibiotic properties of electrolytic silver nano-particles (Ag+) in washing machines to remove 99.9% of bacteria. Set on "Silver Wash", the washer's sterilization system generates silver particles that kill off bacteria and mold in the laundry load…This process also treats the inside of the washing machine tub to kill bacteria and mold, suppressing the odor and contamination that accompanies their formation. When the machine is set on "Silver Sterilization" mode, the laundry load is covered with Silver Nano particles during the rinse cycle. After the washing is complete, the clothes have been found to be totally devoid of bacteria and will remain so for up to 30 days, earning the "Sterilization Mark" from the Korea Testing & Research Institute for the Chemical Industry.

Silver Nano is incorporated into refrigerators by coating the inner surface to keep germs from growing. By keeping the cooling environment germ-free, food stays fresher for up to 15 days longer and a Silver Nano deodorizer keeps bad odors from affecting food taste. Air conditioners have a Silver Nano filter that keeps germs from growing inside the machine and prevents allergy-causing bacteria from being blown into the air. Silver Nano coatings greatly reduce the presence of fungi and bacteria within five minutes of operation.

Home appliances to be launched incorporating Silver Nano technology are 16 new ranges of Air Conditioners from 1 ton to 2 tons in window, split as well as a self standing model. Washing machines top as well as front loading will be available in 9 models. Samsung will also be introducing 30 models of refrigerators in Side by Side, Frost Free and Direct Cool variants.
Samsung's new silver-based home appliances are being test-marketed in countries like India and Korea and throughout Europe, where silver-based technologies have been used for decades and are more widely accepted. They are sure to soon make their way into the U.S. and Canadian markets as the antimicrobial qualities of silver become more well-known to the general public.

A Silver Cathode-Electrode That Helps Fights AIDS and Other Serious Blood Borne Infections!

In another recent development, a Reading, PA company called Arrow International, Inc. has developed and patented a new catheter-electrode system that uses a low-intensity electrical current to push bacteria and virus-fighting silver ions directly into the human bloodstream. According to the company press release:

The catheter combines a silver electrode inserted into the patient's blood stream with a second electrode placed on the nearby skin. The combined action releases silver ions into the blood for immediate reaction with pathogens such as HIV viruses. The silver ions do not attack normal human cells because these cells have protective walls, which is not the case for bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Studies revealed in U.S. Patent, No. 6,066,489 assigned to Arrow International, Inc. of Reading, Pennsylvania show improvement by HIV patients treated with in-blood silver ions. One patient prior to treatment had over two million copies of the HIV virus per milliliter of blood and had an infection fighter cell (T4 cells) count of 18. The patient was experiencing serious kidney malfunction. Within 24 hours after silver ion treatment, the HIV virus count dropped to about one million copies and T4 cells fell to 11. One month after treatment began, the HIV virus count was again halved and the Patient's overall health improved.

The catheter-electrode system is intended to be a universal aid in treating blood-borne infections otherwise extremely difficult to treat or cure once infection has begun. Blood-borne viruses can completely overwhelm a patient, defeating the immune system and leading to death. The catheter electrode is 97.8 percent silver, 2 percent Platinum, and 0.2 percent copper. The silver supplies the active silver ion; platinum acts as a catalyst to aid in the release of the silver ions and prevents a buildup of oxides on the electrode. Copper controls the release rate of the silver from the electrode. The small amount of silver introduced into the patient's bloodstream, and the extremely low levels of current, are both highly effective and physiologically safe.
What's more, according to the Silver Institute (a group which keeps silver investors appraised of all of the new uses for silver in business and industry), the EPA has recently approved the use of Axen30, a liquid spray disinfectant utilizing silver, for use in child day-care centers, preschools, schools, gymnasiums and children's activity centers. The EPA had already approved Axen30 for disinfection of hard surfaces in restaurants, homes and medical facilities. Axen30 is a dilute formula consisting of 30 ppm silver used as a spray disinfectant. But here's the interesting part: The EPA-approved advertising claims for Axen30 include a 30-second kill time and a 24-hour residual kill on standard indicator bacteria, a two-minute kill time on the resistant bacteria MRSE and VRE, a 10-minute kill time on fungi, a 30-second kill time on HIV Type I, and a 10-minute kill time on other viruses. Amazing advertising claims, aren't they? Indeed, especially when you consider the fact that similar claims made by colloidal silver vendors in the past have resulted in threats, harassment and fines of up to $150,000 from the medical gestapo. But of course, silver is now BIG business. And big business has its privileges!

Finally, according to the Silver Institute, makers of children's playground toys are now coming out with silver impregnated playground equipment to help slow down the spread of infectious microorganisms on playgrounds. Even the well-known Curad Bandaid company is getting into the act, having recently released a new line of bandaids that have silver-impregnated pads to help prevent infection in cuts and burns. You can find them for under $5 a box at Wal-Mart today! (Or, you can save a ton of money by spraying your cuts and burns with less than a penny's worth of colloidal silver made with an inexpensive home colloidal silver generator!)

Building a Germ-Free House With Silver!

And to top it all off, according to a recent story in Popular Mechanics titled Building a Germ Free House, AK Steel Corp. of Middletown, Ohio, and AgION Technologies of Wakefield, Massachusetts (mentioned earlier in this report) have teamed up to build an 8,700 square foot "germ free" home in Simi Valley, California, outside of Los Angeles. According to the article, the home will be made from carbon and stainless steel coated with AgION's proprietary silver-based anti-bacteria compound.
"This ground- breaking project sets the stage for the home of the future," said Richard M. Wardrop, AK Steel's chairman and chief executive officer. "The AK Steel concept home will be striking in appearance while offering the benefits of steel construction. Using our steels coated with AgION's anti-microbial silver-based compound, this project also introduces a new way to help combat germs on key surfaces in the home."
Indeed, since the publication of the above-cited Popular Mechanics report in 2003, construction of the "germ free silver home" has already been completed (see http://www.akconcepthome.com/). Not only are "high touch" contact surfaces in the home (such as handrails, faucets, door knobs, and kitchen areas) all made with the AgION silver coating, but heating, ventilation and air conditioning duct work are all constructed with it too. Even refrigerator trays and counter tops! Award winning architect David Martin designed the home, which has already received an award for excellence in design from the prestigious American Institute of Architects!

You Don't Need a Silver-Lined House to Take Advantage of the Amazing Infection-Fighting Power of Silver!

The bottom line is this: Big business is truly moving into silver in a BIG way. And they will continue to do so from here on out complete with the blessings of the medical bureaucrats. You couldn't ask for better proof of silver's powerful infection-fighting qualities!

And fortunately, you don't have line your house in silver in order to take advantage of its absolutely astonishing infection-fighting benefits. By purchasing an inexpensive Micro-Particle Home Colloidal Silver Generator from our recommended vendor, The Silver Edge Health & Nutritionals (see www.thesilveredge.com or call 1-888-528-0559 to request a free brochure), you can produce your own safe, pure, high-quality colloidal silver any time you need it, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for about thirty six cents a quart or less! (At that price, you can literally afford to bathe in it. Just add a quart or two to your bath water. Indeed, many people with chronic skin conditions do just that, and to great effect!)

You can also spray colloidal silver onto kitchen counter tops to kill germs, mold, mildew and other microbes…soak your store-bought fruits and vegetables in it to eradicate potentially harmful bacteria and fungus from the food surfaces…clean and decontaminate faucets, door knobs, and other contact surfaces such as your kitchen cutting board or that filthy blade on your kitchen can opener…add a couple of ounces to your daily laundry as a natural antiseptic agent that will keep clothes, bath towels, dish rags, and other fabrics fresh and germ-free for weeks on end…soak your toothbrush in it to prevent microbial contamination …spray it in your garden to prevent fungal and bacterial growth…spray it around sinks, bathtubs and other surfaces to stop mold and mildew in its tracks…spray it topically onto cuts and burns for prevention of infection and to stimulate rapid wound healing…spray it on your hair to stop itching and dandruff almost instantly…

…You can even add it to your pet's water bowl to resolve internal infections and help prevent illness…add a little to your aquarium tank to prevent fungal "ick" and other tropical fish infections…put a drop or two into your ears to knock out a pesky earache without having to use prescription antibiotics...gargle with it to eradicate sore throats…put it into a spray atomizer and sniff it up your nose to eliminate sinus infections…add a drop or two into your eyes to stop Pink Eye or styes in a single afternoon…and so many, many more astonishing healing, infection-fighting and disease-preventing benefits you'll ask yourself why you've never tried it before! And, of course, you can safely use colloidal silver internally to stop colds and flu in their tracks…alleviate intestinal infections…stop urinary tract infections…cure upper respiratory infections…wipe out infection-based prostate problems…and much, much more!

10 Million Colloidal Silver Users Can't Be Wrong!

An estimated ten million Americans now use colloidal silver regularly. But why pay $29 or $39 an ounce at your local health food store for a tiny four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver, when you can make your own high-quality colloidal silver for only about thirty six cents per quart with a brand new Micro-Particle Home Colloidal Silver Generator from our good friends at The Silver Edge Health & Nutritionals?

The choice is up to you. Eventually, the medical bureaucrats will ban colloidal silver completely at the behest of big business and the drug industry, neither of which want the competition from such a safe, inexpensive infection-fighting substance. They want to sell you their high-priced silver coated/impregnated/laced/lined products instead. But as we have emphasized over and over again for the past five years, once you have the means of colloidal silver production in your own hands, they can't take it away from you. With a safe, simple, home colloidal silver generator you can produce colloidal silver for the rest of your life, for only pennies. You'll literally be able to afford to give it away to sick relatives and friends…gargle with it to stop a sore throat in its tracks...swish it around in your mouth to eliminate bacterial plaque on teeth and gums...drink a few ounces daily to resolve intestinal infections or cure food poisoning...knock out upper respiratory infections such as colds and the flu...eliminate urinary tract infections...beat candida yeast infections with ease...and much more!

Cutting edge doctors have demonstrated that when used internally it even works on deep-seated infections that, left untreated, can result in chronic degenerative diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Parkinson's disease, cancer, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia and many other serious conditions!

As Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D., board certified immunologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School has written, "Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs. Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science natural silver. I sincerely recommend that everyone have electrically generated silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent."

So be absolutely sure to call our good friends at The Silver Edge today, and ask about their line of high-quality home colloidal silver generators. Just call 1-888-528-0559. You'll be glad you did, we promise!

“I'm often asked which colloidal silver generator I recommend. Hands down, I recommend the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from my friend Steve Barwick at Silver Edge…I've touted the benefits of pure micro-particle colloidal silver for years to anyone that would listen. Frankly, it's the best way I know to quickly heal cuts, scrapes, sores and burns... treat a host of common illnesses such as colds, flus and sore throats... as well as kill nasty germs on cutting boards, kitchen counters, tooth brushes and even your pet's water bowl. But most importantly is how it can protect you from the deadly pathogen MRSA that has become resistant to almost all known prescription antibiotics. Having a colloidal silver generator as part of your first aid kit just makes sense... especially if you ever find yourself in an emergency with no access to a doctor or hospital.”

-- Michael Cutler, M.D., Editor, Easy Health Options




"I believe the folks at The Silver Edge are the reigning experts on colloidal silver. Nowhere else will you find more accurate information on how to use colloidal silver to protect yourself and your family..."

-- Bob Livingston, The Bob Livingston Letter




"Thanks for all your brilliant work to educate people about colloidal silver. It is one of nature’s wonders that helps keep us well."

-- Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, M.D., MBChB, PhD, author Cancer Research Secrets, Complete Parasites Handbook, and Survive Without Antibiotics




"Hi Steve: I have been a supporter of your work for nearly 15 years, and I have used Colloidal Silver for over 30 years without a single problem, EVER! I have cleared up feline herpes in a cat's eyes, and have prevented infection from countless cuts, post surgery, for other injuries sustained during daily life. It is the safest and best antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-viral that I have ever used, as opposed to the pricey, worthless, side effects loaded junk that the pharmaceutical companies promote. Read the labels for the antibiotics and other "medications" prescribed by physicians, in good, albeit ignorant, faith, and you will find horror abounding in devastating diseases that they can cause you, including death. So, if anyone has any doubt about using natural Colloidal Silver in place of chemicals, think again. This works, with zero side effects."

“The bottom line is that for colloidal silver to effectively fight pathogens, you must use micro-particle silver rather than conventional colloidal silver or silver protein products… You can actually make your own micro-particle colloidal silver in your own home. In fact, there’s one colloidal silver generator on the market today -- the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from a company called The Silver Edge -- that will make colloidal silver with such uncommonly small silver particles, it requires a multi-million dollar Transmission Electron Microscope operating at 175,000x magnification just to see them. This generator allows you to make the most powerful, and highly bioavailable form of colloidal silver right in your own home. And you can make it for pennies…Having a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator on hand allows you to protect your entire family – and probably your friends and neighbors as well – for just pennies.”

-- Donald S. McAlvany, The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor, October 2013




“I'm so happy I own a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver generator. No one should be without this wonderful device. I so very much appreciate you sharing your knowledge about colloidal silver.”

-- Gary C. King, best-selling author of Blood Lust: Portrait of a Serial Killer and other true crime books and stories
