Big Pharma Newspaper Reporter Sniffing Around


Big Pharma Newspaper Reporter Sniffing Around

By Steve Barwick, author, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual

It looks as if a news reporter who specializes in pharmaceutical reporting for a major East Coast newspaper might be trolling my company, The Silver Edge, with intent to publish a negative article about it.

I belong to several online services that, among other things, alert me whenever there have been an inordinate number of Google searches for my name. And I noticed that over the course of the past 10 days or so, I’ve been getting lots of notices — far more than I usually do.

In other words, someone’s been doing some digging on me.

I don’t worry about things like that, of course. When you’re in the public eye, even a little bit, people search for you online.

However, my company also began receiving a series of angry emails from an individual demanding that I reveal proprietary information about the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, claiming she couldn’t possibly buy one without having this information.

When members of my staff refused to give out that proprietary information, and politely explained why it could not be given out, this individual got very testy, attempting to bait my staff into an ongoing email argument.

It was only after the second contentious email from this individual was forwarded to me that I noticed the way she cleverly tried to bait my staff into releasing proprietary information and realized something was wrong. So I looked her up online, and discovered that she’s a news reporter for a BIG east coast newspaper.

And not just any kind of news reporter, but one specializing in writing for the pharmaceutical industry. In other words, she’s a long-time news media shill for Big Pharma.

Not My First Rodeo

This isn’t my first rodeo, of course. I’ve had to deal with nasty reporters, self-righteous consumer organizations and prying government agencies before.

For example, last year I received a notification from a “consumer watchdog” organization, claiming that someone had reported one of my articles on colloidal silver for containing “false advertising.”

And why “false advertising”?

Apparently, in the offending article I had very briefly mentioned that a major review of published clinical studies found the prescription flu drugs, Tamiflu and Relenza, to be virtually worthless in treating the flu.

Since the documentation I provided in the article was irrefutable, and was from one of the world’s leading reviewers of clinical studies, it apparently made Big Pharma mad enough to sic their watchdogs on me.

Yes, they began hounding me, simply for reporting a truth that’s easily documented (but nevertheless a trigger point for Big Pharma).

When I refused to comply with this organization’s demands to pay them money to further analyze my article and help me fix the alleged “false advertising,” they wrote back threatening to turn me into the Federal Trade Commission if I failed to comply.

So I ignored them. And lo, and behold, they indeed reported me to the FTC.

Thankfully, after engaging a top business attorney — one of the best in the state — I got that situation resolved.

In the end, I simply removed the offending article, even though not a single word of it was untrue. And that was that. But it still cost me a couple thousand dollars in legal fees to deal with the “consumer watchdog” organization and the government agency they use as their bully stick.

Interestingly enough, the “consumer watchdog” agency later publicly admitted they’d not had a single complaint about my company or its products. Not one. It was the information in my article about the worthlessness of two flu drugs that had ruffled their feathers. And since they refused to tell my attorney who the original accuser was, it seems to me it was likely a Big Pharma shill.

The Ebola Crisis

You might remember how a reporter for the British newspaper, The Guardian, attacked and ridiculed me in print four years ago, during the Ebola crisis.

The reporter purposely distorted my reporting on the Ebola crisis, telling readers of The Guardian newspaper that I falsely claimed colloidal silver to be an “Ebola cure.”

The reporter also enlisted the help of a famous natural health skeptic, who I’d done battle with in print a year or so earlier over colloidal silver, to buttress his argument that I’m a “snake oil salesman.”

Of course, I never claimed colloidal silver to be an “Ebola cure.”

Indeed, in one of my five articles on the Ebola crisis — all of which took Big Media to task for fanning the flames of Ebola hysteria in this country when there was nothing to be hysterical about — I clearly stated the following:

But just as I refuse to join in with all of the doom-and-gloom hype about the supposed coming worldwide Ebola apocalypse, in like manner I also refuse to join in with those making blanket statements that colloidal silver is the sure-fire ‘cure’ for Ebola.

Nevertheless, I also reported that a ground-breaking preliminary clinical study conducted by the U.S. Department of Defense had concluded that human cells which were pre-inoculated with silver nanoparticles appeared to prevent the Ebola virus from replicating and spreading inside those cells.

And I later reported that the Minister of Presidential and Public Affairs in the Ebola-stricken nation of Sierra Leone, who is a trained chemist, claimed publicly that colloidal silver was working against Ebola in his country, and that 500 people had been successfully treated with it.

In both cases, I provided full documentation for the claims being made by the Defense Department in their study, and from the Minister of Presidential and Public Affairs in Sierra Leone.

For example, I provided a link to a copy of the actual clinical study conducted by the U.S. Department of Defense, demonstrating that pre-inoculating live cells with silver helps prevent the Ebola virus from replicating in those cells.

And I provided my readers with photographs of the newspaper articles from Sierra Leone, which verified the fact that the Minister of Presidential and Public Affairs in that country had openly claimed that colloidal silver was indeed working against Ebola.

But none of that documentation was enough to stop the cries of “snake oil salesman” and “fraud” from being published against me, which are Big Pharma’s perpetual claims about anyone reporting truthfully on natural healing.

Oops, There I Go Again

Now, to bring this story up-to-date: Over the course of the past half year, I’ve published five new articles about clinical studies demonstrating silver to be effective against various forms of…drum roll, please…cancer.

Of course, the mere mention of the use of any natural health product for cancer is strictly verboten. Not allowed. So I was very careful to only report on the facts from the clinical studies, and not make claims for colloidal silver itself.

Here are the links to those articles, so you can read them now, if you’d like:

What’s more, my latest book, Colloidal Silver and Cancer: a Surprising Look, which has sold thousands of copies since its initial publication, documents 50 different clinical studies demonstrating silver to be effective against cancer in preliminary studies.

Naturally, none of this journalistic work is winning me any brownie buttons with Big Pharma, the FDA, or any of the sycophantic news media, either, which depends largely on advertising dollars from Big Pharma pushing their latest prescription drugs.

And I believe that’s why I’ve now got a news media shill for Big Pharma rooting around online for information about me, and trolling my employees, evidently looking for “dirt” to report on me and my company.

Apparently, it’s perfectly okay for clinical researchers to publish their research on silver’s growing (and astonishing) list of benefits against cancer. But it’s somehow not okay for me to let my readers know such published research exists.

Indeed, truthfully telling the public that preliminary clinical research clearly demonstrates silver to be effective against cancer cells and tumors is considered to be a mortal sin by Big Pharma, its various government enforcement arms (FDA, FTC, etc.) and its cow-towing news media shills.

What’s Coming Next?

I don’t know what the reporter who’s trolling my company has planned at this point. But I don’t expect it to be very nice. So I’m just warning you in advance that something wicked might this way be coming. I’ll keep you informed if, and when, it begins to play out.

But please know this: I’ve been writing about colloidal silver (and using it daily) for nearly 25 years now. My book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual (547-pages) remains to this day the best-selling book of all times on colloidal silver and its many uses.

That alone has made me an arch-enemy in the eyes of Big Pharma and their enforcement arm, the FDA.

Big Pharma and the FDA are ruthless and relentless. They simply don’t like certain truths coming out, particularly any pertaining to cancer. And they hate it even more when you document those truths with clinical studies and other irrefutable documentation.

Worse yet, as I’m sure you’ve ascertained at this point, Big Pharma has now teamed up with Big Government and Big Media to work to destroy anyone who’s revealing the kind of inconvenient truths I’ve been digging up for years.

So please don’t be surprised if you see a nasty “hit piece” against me or my company in the very near future, published in a major east coast newspaper. Or even a new attack on my company by government regulators.

C:\Users\Barwick\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Word\44373021_s.jpgImportant Addendum: Where to Find Colloidal Silver

If you’re brand new to colloidal silver usage and are wondering where to buy it, it’s important to know that you can find it in just about any well-stocked health food store in America.  It’s also available on Amazon and numerous other websites.

But it can be extremely expensive. In fact, because colloidal silver works so well against numerous forms of infection and disease, it has the highest price mark-up of any nutritional supplement in existence.

The amount of actual silver in a four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver is about five to 12 cents worth.  (Yes, I said five to twelve cents.)

Yet because that small amount of silver is all it takes to decimate so many different kinds of infections, the manufacturers mark it up about 16,000%, charging a whopping $20 or $30 per bottle.

What’s more, manufacturers promoting the latest faddish colloidal silver product often charge far more per bottle – sometimes $35 to $50 for a tiny four-ounce bottle.

And people are more than willing to pay through the nose for these commercial colloidal silver products at health food stores because colloidal silver does indeed heal infections and prevent the spread of germs and disease faster and better than any other natural supplement on the planet!

So, commercially speaking, the retail price of colloidal silver at health food stores reflects its value to the consumer far more so than its true cost to produce. But here’s the good news:


Make Your Own High-Quality
Colloidal Silver for Pennies!

As I mentioned, typical health food store prices for colloidal silver can range from $20 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle.

But with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you can make your own safe, pure, high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for about 36 cents a quart!  In other words, you can make it at actual cost, just like the big colloidal silver bottlers do.

Compared to typical health food store prices, your first two one-quart batches literally pay for the entire cost of your new generator!  Do you know of any other health product that literally pays for itself the very first few times you use it? The savings are absolutely astonishing!

In fact, by making your own high-quality colloidal silver with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll be as close to having FREE colloidal silver as you can get, and for the rest of your life!

You’ll never have to pay those exorbitant health food store prices again!

The new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is now the world’s #1 best-selling colloidal silver generator. Here are just a few reasons why you should own one…

  • It pays for itself after your very first batch or two — your total cost to make your first one-quart batch is about 36 cents, compared to the $240 you’d pay at a health food store if you bought an equivalent amount (i.e., eight of those little 4-ounce bottles they normally sell for $30 apiece)!
  • Safe, simple to operate…No special skills needed…You just set the handy timer, plug it in, walk away, and three hours later you have a perfect batch of therapeutic quality micro-particle colloidal silver…every time!  Here’s a short pictorial demonstrating how astonishingly easy it is to use a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge:

  • Produces uncommonly small silver micro-particles as low as .8 nm. That’s a fraction of a single nanometer. Compare that to health food store colloidal silver which can contain silver particles as large as 200 nm to 1,000 nm (or even larger), and you’ll see why micro-particle colloidal silver is the very best there is!  Smaller particles mean your body can absorb and utilize up to 99% of the colloidal silver you take, compared to maybe 30% or 40% with many health food store brands!
  • Runs on standard household electricity, but uses less power than a tiny Christmas tree bulb – you won’t even see a blip on your electric bill!
  • Produces uniform, crystal clear batches every single time that store for months, or even years, without losing potency!
  • Cannot produce silver chloride or unsafe substances – you get pure, therapeutic-quality micro-particle colloidal silver every time!

Just read through some of the testimonials below to see for yourself how you’ll save literally thousands of dollars per year by making your own colloidal silver with your brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge!

Customer Testimonials

Here’s what one customer recently wrote to tell us:

“Owning a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge has given us the luxury of being able to use high-quality colloidal silver any time we need it.  And we never have to worry about the costs because it only costs a few pennies per quart to make!  It is without a doubt the single-best money-saving appliance in my entire house!

Best of all, the machine is very easy to use, and easy to store. I was concerned about ease-of-use, but my fears were unfounded. After I got mine and used it, I immediately bought one and sent it to my 83 year old mom, and she uses it regularly as well.

Now that I have a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can use colloidal silver for everything — disinfecting the kitchen sinks, countertops, and the cutting board… spraying the toilet bowls, and the bathroom countertops and sinks… spraying it on my toothbrush to prevent bacterial growth…rinsing my mouth with it to prevent cavities and gum disease…you name it.

I even put it in the laundry rinse cycle when I do my linens, towels and kitchen rags, so I don’t have to wash them as frequently. It really keeps them fresh, and there’s never any mold or mildew anywhere in our house.

I also put some in the cat’s water bowl each day, and the dog’s too.  We use it in the bathtub for skin problems.  And of course we drink it when our tummies are queasy, or when we feel a cold or flu coming on.  We also gargle with it in order to get rid of sore throats, and sniff it up our noses to get rid of sinus problems.

My husband even sprays it on his hair in the mornings, and has completely eliminated his lifelong dandruff problem.  And he sprays a little bit in his eyes from time to time, and now has no more recurrent problems with sties.”

And here’s what another happy customer wrote to say about the tremendous savings she’s achieved by no longer having to purchase her colloidal silver through health food stores:

“We make a quart of colloidal silver at least once a week with the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from the Silver Edge. I finally sat down and figured out how much this machine has been saving us. By making our own colloidal silver we’ve saved $11,503.20 this year alone, compared to the cost of colloidal silver at our local health food store.

The cost for colloidal silver at our local health food store is $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. But with my Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can make eight times that amount (i.e., a full quart) for about 35 cents total cost.

If I were to purchase a quart of colloidal silver at the health food store, which would be eight of those tiny, four-ounce bottles, the cost would be a whopping $240 (i.e., 8 x $30 = $240) compared to the 35 cents I now spend to make a full quart!

Here’s the breakdown of our costs to make a full quart of colloidal silver with our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator: It costs us about a dollar for a gallon of steam-distilled water at Walmart. So a quart of the steam-distilled water costs about 25 cents. And I estimate we use maybe a nickel’s worth of electricity and maybe another nickel’s worth of silver from the silver rods for every one-quart batch of colloidal silver we make. So that’s 35 cents a quart, all told, for each quart of micro-particle colloidal silver we make!

And frankly, considering how long the .999 fine silver rods have lasted (over a year and a half, so far, for the most recent set), I think it’s probably even cheaper than that. But it’s the lifetime savings we’ve experienced that’s just mind-boggling to me.

For example, we’ve had our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver unit for nearly five years now. And as I mentioned we make one quart per week, and we spend about 35 cents a week on making colloidal silver.

This means we save about $239.65 a week by not having to purchase a quart’s worth of colloidal silver at our local health food store.  So do the math: In just one month, the savings is $958.60…in one year, the savings is $11,503.20…and in five years we’ve saved approximately $57,516.00!

When you put pencil to paper and figure it out, it definitely takes you by surprise. You just think ‘No way. I must have multiplied that wrong.’

But it’s true. The savings is legitimately well over $11,000 a year over health food store prices for colloidal silver, if you make and use a quart of colloidal silver a week like we do!  And we reap that incredible savings from the very reasonable $250 investment we made in purchasing our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.

In their advertising literature, The Silver Edge says the unit completely pays for itself after your first couple of one-quart batches. But really, that’s quite an understatement when you realize the true extent of your savings!

Of course, once you start making your own colloidal silver with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you don’t really think about how much you’re saving compared to health food store prices, because it just becomes a normal part of your everyday life. But the savings is nevertheless astonishing when you reflect on it.

What’s especially nice is being able to produce a significantly higher-quality colloidal silver than what’s generally available to the public through health food stores, especially at such a tiny, tiny fraction of the cost.”

— Marie Wilkey, SC

The Bottom Line…

With a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll never again have to pay exorbitant health food store or internet vendor prices for high-quality colloidal silver!

Indeed, your first batch or two will indeed completely pay for the entire cost of your generator, compared to health food store prices!

What’s more, you’ll be able to give colloidal silver away FREE to family members, friends and neighbors, because you’ll be making it — literally — for only a few pennies per batch!
