109 Documented Successful Uses for Colloidal Silver Before the Advent of Prescription Antibiotic Drugs

The following is a list of pathogens and conditions successfully treated with colloidal silver, as documented in medical texts prior to the advent of prescription antibiotic drugs in the 1940’s.

Many of these citations are from the following books: The Use of Colloids in Health and Disease (1919) by Alfred B. Searle; Colloids in Biology and Medicine (1919) by H. Bechhold; and Index-Catalogue of the Library of the Surgeon General’s Office United States Army (1931) U.S. Printing Office, Washington, D.C.

The more I discover different ways colloidal silver was successfully used before the advent of prescription antibiotics, the more convinced I am that the only reason it is denigrated by medical bureaucrats now is to protect pharmaceutical company profits from competition by effective natural supplements.

After all, if people discover the fact that in many cases they can cure their own infections and diseases with a few dollars worth of safe, natural colloidal silver, they will abandon Big Pharma and their toxic prescription medicines in droves.

Consider the following list of citations, and see if you can figure out any better reason than sheer greed why medical bureaucrats now claim there’s no evidence for the effectiveness of colloidal silver.
