Colloidal Silver and the Bubonic Plague Outbreak of 2017
According to the World Health Organization, there’s been an outbreak of the flea-borne Bubonic Plague – aka the Black Death — in Madagascar. And the medical authorities have now issued warnings that the plague could spread to nine other nearby countries due to the frequency of airline flights from Madagascar, a vacation hotspot for the wealthy.
Since the start of the outbreak, I’ve received a number of questions asking if colloidal silver might be effective against the Bubonic Plague. Of course, I’ve written about this topic in the past when cases of Bubonic Plague began cropping up in Colorado, New Mexico and other western states in the U.S.
So for those who are interested in learning more, I’m going to provide the link to my previous article, below, as well as some brand new information on using colloidal silver to control fleas on pets, since fleas are the main carriers of the Bubonic Plague pathogen, and humans have been known to contract Bubonic Plague from their pets…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
According to WHO (World Health Organization), plague warnings have been issued for nine countries near the island of Madagascar amid fears the disease could spread via sea trade and flight routes.
CNN says nearly 1200 people have been stricken by the disease on the tropical island, and 124 of them have died so far, prompting British health authorities to warn Brits not to travel to the island, which is apparently a vacation hotspot for wealthy Europeans.
Madagascar typically reports between 300 and 600 cases of Bubonic Plague every year, largely among their poor who live in slums which abound with rodents that carry the fleas that in turn harbor the Bubonic Plague pathogen, Yersinia pestis.
But according to the UK Sun newspaper, “The current outbreak is considered a much bigger threat to the region than in previous years because it has taken on its pneumonic form — meaning it is airborne and spread by sneezing and coughing.”
According to Madagascar’s director of health promotion, Dr Manitra Rakotoarivony, “Normally, people who catch the plague live in poor areas, but people in every place in Madagascar society are now catching the disease.” He confirms this is because the disease has gone airborne, meaning it can now be spread simply through coughing.
Will It Spread?
Jimmy Whitworth, a professor of International Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine says the risk of Bubonic Plague spreading internationally from Madagascar is low, even though it’s a vacation hotspot.
However, here in the U.S. over the past few years, cases of Bubonic Plague have been showing up in Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, California, Oregon and other western states, both in animals as well as humans.
Business Insider mentioned in August 2017 that fleas carrying the Bubonic Plague have been found in Arizona. They also pointed out that this past summer, two human cases of plague infection had been found in Santa Fe, New Mexico. What’s more, in 2015 there were 16 cases of Bubonic Plague in the United States, resulting in 4 deaths – a 25% death rate.
As you can see from the Centers for Disease Control map below, numerous individual cases of Bubonic Plague have stricken the western part of the United States between 1970 and 2012.
What’s more, Last summer in China, parts of the city of Yumen were sealed off and 30,000 confined to their neighborhoods after the plague killed a local man.
This has led some global health authorities and news sources to speculate about the gradual, slow-motion resurrection of the Black Plague, which, in the 14th century, wiped out one-third of Europe’s population “in one of the most devastating pandemics in human history.”
Will Colloidal Silver Help?
So the question is this: Will colloidal silver help against the Bubonic Plague?
The answer, unfortunately, is not crystal clear. That’s because very little clinical research has been conducted on using colloidal silver for the plague.
Nevertheless, in September 2003 American Biotech Labs, manufacturers of ASAP brand colloidal silver, issued a press release claiming they’d “just finished a series of tests at a level three laboratory” and that using their 32 ppm colloidal silver product against a concentration of 81 million Bubonic Plague bacteria per milliliter, they were able to kill all Yersinia pestis bacterium within just two minutes.
You’ve got to admit, that’s an astonishing kill rate for such a hardy and potentially deadly pathogen. Of course, it’s important to note that was a test tube study, and not a study on human beings or animals infected with the Bubonic Plague pathogen. But it’s a strong indication that colloidal silver will work handily against the pathogen, and thus the disease.
To learn more on this topic, here’s the link to my previous article about using colloidal silver for Bubonic Plague:
In the above article, you’ll also discover a little-known method of using colloidal silver – nebulizing it into the lungs with a medical nebulizer — that might increase its effectiveness against the Bubonic Plague pathogen in the human body.
Treat Your Pets for Fleas, Too!
Also, it’s important to reiterate that the Bubonic Plague pathogen is usually spread through flea bites. This makes it imperative to keep your pets – dogs and cats alike – as “flea free” as possible.
After all, in the Denver, Colorado case of Bubonic Plague discussed in my above-linked article, one of the individuals who caught the plague got it from his dog after it had become infected by fleas from local mice, rats, ground squirrels or other vermin.
Fortunately, based upon anecdotal accounts, it’s becoming abundantly clear that colloidal silver has some remarkable anti-flea properties. As one colloidal silver user wrote:
“I started putting a small amount of colloidal silver into the water bowl my dog and cat drink out of. Funny thing happened. They don’t have fleas! I would normally be forced to use the strong, spot-on flea pesticides early in the spring but I haven’t used any at all this year. It’s almost unbelievable, but it works!”
Another reader wrote to say:
“I read your post about putting colloidal silver in my cat’s water bowl instead of using those harmful chemicals to prevent fleas. Well, so far (one month) it’s a complete success. Thank you so much!”
With my own pets, I’ve found that you can even squelch active flea outbreaks by using colloidal silver topically, as well.
When my full-grown Chow broke out with a miserable flea infestation several years back, I simply put some 10 ppm colloidal silver into a pump spray bottle, then thoroughly sprayed my dog’s fur and skin, rubbing the liquid colloidal silver gently into the fur and skin as deeply as I could. I did this three times per day and the fleas were gone in three days. Such a blessing. No harmful chemicals!
Not only that, but the silver brings massive relief to the pet’s skin, because colloidal silver helps stop the itching from the flea bites thanks to its profound (and clinically proven) anti-inflammatory and skin-healing properties.

Another good tip, if you’re concerned about the potential spread of the Bubonic Plague pathogen in your area, would be to stay away places where rodents like mice, rats, ground squirrels and others congregate. Again, rodents are the main carriers of the fleas that carry the Bubonic Plague pathogen.
One Final Important Thought…
If you’re 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.
But it can be extremely expensive. In fact, because it works so well against numerous forms of infection and disease, colloidal silver 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 the manufacturers mark that up about 60,000%, charging a whopping $20 or $30 per bottle.
People are willing to pay through the nose for colloidal silver at health food stores because it heals infections and prevents the spread of germs and disease faster and better than anything else on the planet, and because it’s safe and completely natural, to boot!
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:
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 actual cost.
Compared to typical health food store prices of $20 to $30 for a tiny 4-oz. bottle, the very first couple one-quart batches you make literally pays 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!
As Close to FREE Colloidal Silver
As You Can Come, For the Rest of Your Life
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 quart 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 40% or 50% 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!
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 .9999 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
