Colloidal Silver Stops Growth of Breast Cancer Cells and Tumors

colloidal silver breast cancer tumor study

Back in 2015 I published an article about a clinical study that had just been published in Europe, demonstrating that colloidal silver causes human breast and liver cancer cells to self-destruct.

Of course, this was a test tube study. But it was fascinating in that it was touted as one of the very first studies to demonstrate that colloidal silver is specifically effective against breast cancer cells.

What I didn’t realize is that five years earlier, another group of researchers published a study titled “Antitumor Activity of Colloidal Silver on MCF-7 Breast Cancer Cells,” in which they’d demonstrated the effectiveness of colloidal silver against both breast cancer cells and tumors (see above abstract)!

In this study, published in 2010 in the Journal of Experimental & Clinical Cancer Research, the study authors set out to determine whether or not colloidal silver had toxic effects on MCF-7 breast cancer cells and tumors, and its mechanism of cell death.

The breast cancer cells were treated with colloidal silver ranging from 1.75 ppm to 17.5 ppm in concentration, for five hours. Results: “Colloidal silver demonstrated dose-dependent cytotoxic effect in MCF-7 breast cancer cells through induction of apoptosis.”

In essence, this means the colloidal silver created changes in the cancer cells that led them to commit cellular suicide.

The researchers also discovered that colloidal silver killed the breast cancer cells without causing toxicity or harm to normal control cells, i.e., “Our in vitro studies showed that colloidal silver induced a dose-dependent cell death…without affecting the viability of normal PBMC control cells.”

Finally, the researchers concluded, “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.”

Wow. Colloidal silver, at very low levels, killed the breast cancer cells used in the study, and stopped breast cancer tumors from growing. And once again, the researchers called for the use of colloidal silver as a “potential alternative agent for human breast cancer therapy.”

Another Study Confirms

In yet another study, those results were confirmed.

That study was titled “Potential Of Colloidal Or Silver Nanoparticles To Reduce The Growth Of B16F10 Melanoma Tumors,” and it was published in the African Journal of Microbiology Research in March 2013. Here’s an image of the Abstract from the study:

In this study, researchers actually induced breast cancer tumors in mice, and then used colloidal silver nanoparticles to stop the tumors from growing.

In other words, they demonstrated that silver is not just effective against breast cancer cells in a laboratory petri dish, but also, in an actual living animal afflicted with breast cancer.

At the outset of the study, the researchers noted:

“The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-tumoral activity of colloidal silver or silver nanoparticles in a B16F10 melanoma mice model.”

In other words, the researchers induced breast cancer tumors in mice, and then treated them with differing concentrations of colloidal silver and silver nanoparticles.

First, they tested both colloidal silver and silver nanoparticles in vitro (i.e., in the test tube) and found them to be effective at stopping the spread of melanoma cancer cells.

Then, they tested both colloidal silver and silver nanoparticles on mice in which melanoma cancer tumors had been induced. They found that by injecting the silver subcutaneously (i.e., under the skin) “melanoma tumor growth was significantly decreased.”

The researchers concluded, “Our results suggest that colloidal silver or silver nanoparticles could be useful as an antiproliferative drug, inducing an impairment of tumoral growth.”

In other words, both colloidal silver and silver nanoparticles were found to significantly impair the growth of breast cancer melanoma tumors – indeed, enough that the researchers felt silver “could be useful as an antiproliferative drug, inducing an impairment of tumoral growth.”

Even More Studies

In that same time-frame (2010-2015) other researchers also demonstrated silver’s effectiveness against breast cancer cells and tumors.

For example, in a 2013 study titled “Cytotoxicity of Biologically Synthesized Silver Nanoparticles in MDA-MB-231 Human Breast Cancer Cells,” published in the journal BioMedical Research International, researchers set out to evaluable the toxicity of silver nanoparticles against human breast cancer cells (MDA-MB-231).

The researchers treated the breast cancer cells with concentrations of 5 ppm to 25 ppm silver nanoparticles for 24 hours.

According to the researchers, “We found that AgNPs inhibited the growth [of the breast cancer cells] in a dose-dependent manner…eventually leading to induction of apoptosis.”

In other words, as in other studies, the silver nanoparticles caused the breast cancer cells to self-destruct. But in this study, the higher concentrations (25 ppm) worked better than the lower concentrations (5 ppm).

The researchers concluded, “The present results showed that AgNPs might be a potential alternative agent for human breast cancer therapy.”

And it yet another study, this one also published in 2013, titled “Green Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles Using Ganoderma Neo-Japonicum Imazeki: A Potential Cytotoxic Agent Against Breast Cancer Cells,” researchers used specially prepared silver nanoparticles against breast cancer cells (MDA-MB-231).

The researchers discovered that treatment of the cancer cells with only 1 ppm to 10 ppm silver nanoparticles for 24 hours caused “inhibition of cell viability” and “induction of membrane leakage” (i.e., the cancer cells started leaking and could no longer stay alive).

According to the researchers, “The results indicate that AgNPs possess cytotoxic effects with apoptotic features.” In other words, the silver caused the cancer cells to self-destruct.

The researchers further wrote, “…the reactive oxygen species generated by AgNPs have a significant role in apoptosis.” In other words, silver’s ability to generate reactive oxygen species (similar to hydrogen peroxide) inside cancer cells ultimately results in cell death.

The researchers concluded, “The present findings suggest that AgNPs could contribute to the development of a suitable anticancer drug, which may lead to the development of a novel nanomedicine for the treatment of cancers.”

So once again researchers are advocating for the use of silver against breast cancer cells and tumors.

One More Study

Finally, in a study conducted in 2015, and published in the International Journal of Nanomedicine under the title of “Differential Cytotoxic And Radiosensitizing Effects Of Silver Nanoparticles On Triple-Negative Breast Cancer And Non-Triple-Negative Breast Cells,” researchers demonstrated that silver nanoparticles were highly toxic to triple-negative breast cancer cells (TNBC).

What’s more, that toxicity against breast cancer cells took place “at doses that have little effect on non-tumorigenic breast cells or cells derived from liver, kidney, and monocyte lineages.”

In other words, the silver nanoparticles caused toxicity and ultimately cell death in the breast cancer cells, at levels that caused no harm to normal healthy human breast cells, nor to cells involved in the clearance of silver from the body, such as liver and kidney cells, nor to immune cells (i.e., monocytes).

According to the study authors, when compared to other types of breast tumors, triple-negative breast cancer “has a greater likelihood of metastasis, and the 5-year survival rate of women diagnosed with TNBC is markedly decreased.”

Therefore, the researchers argued, “there’s a pressing need for effective therapeutics to treat this form of breast cancer.”

The researchers concluded, “…we find that AgNPs [i.e., silver nanoparticles] are cytotoxic to Triple Negative Breast Cancer cells at doses that have little effect on noncancerous breast cells or other healthy cells.”

Wonderful, right? The silver nanoparticles killed triple-negative breast cancer cells – the most deadly kind of breast cancer cells – at relatively low dosages, and once again didn’t cause any damage at all to surrounding healthy cells!

Silver Works Against Other Cancers, Too!

As I’ve exclusively revealed over the course of the last two years, there have now been well over 50 clinical studies demonstrating silver to be effective against a wide variety of deadly cancers.

Here are links to articles I’ve written over the past few years on just a few of the clinical studies and medical reports I’ve found, demonstrating silver to be effective against a wide variety of cancer cells or tumors:

Of course, skeptics who love to scream “snake oil” will point out that the studies discussed in the above articles were almost all laboratory “test tube” studies in which silver was tested against cancer cells in a petri dish, and not in the human body.

And that’s true, although in some of the studies silver was also tested against cancer tumors in animals, and found to be highly effective against tumors.

But to help quell the screams of “snake oil” from the skeptics, here’s a human trial study in which cancer specialists were astonished to watch as one of their patients who had been sent home to die after undergoing traditional cancer treatments cured his own metastatic head and neck cancer in just three months, using homemade colloidal silver:

Finally, for an excellent and thoroughly detailed look at over 50 clinical trials and studies about silver and cancer – including test tube studies and animal studies alike, plus 20 in-depth anecdotal accounts of real healings – consider getting a copy of my latest book:

As I’ve stated before, with all of this clinical evidence at hand, sooner or later medical researchers are going to have to conduct clinical trials using silver on humans with various forms of cancer, so proper dosages and delivery methods can be determined for each type of cancer.

But I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting. After all, the cancer industry is making tens of billions of dollars annually treating cancer the old-fashioned way – i.e., cut, burn and poison – meaning surgery, radiation, and toxic cancer drugs. And when that kind of money is involved, change can only come with much difficulty.

So we still have to go through the period of time in which the cancer doctors squawk and squawk about what a “quack” treatment silver is, while clinical researchers quietly continue building their case that silver is, indeed, a bona-fide anti-cancer agent.

Meanwhile, those 50 clinical studies I cover in my book, Colloidal Silver and Cancer: a Surprising Look, will gradually grow into 200 or 300 studies, and finally, the cancer doctors will no longer be able to ignore or deny the evidence.

Only then will the monolithic cancer industry finally bow to the pressure, admit that silver is an effective cancer treatment, and start doing the human trials in order to determine proper dosages and delivery methods for each kind of cancer.

Meanwhile, people are dying. And the cancer industry is getting richer and richer. For such, unfortunately, is the way of the world we live in.

Sleuth looking for clues about Colloidal SilverImportant 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:

Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver GeneratorMake Your Own High-Quality Colloidal Silver for

Customer Testimonials

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

K. Sullivan Colloidal Silver Testimonial“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.”

– K. Sullivan, NM

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:

Marie Wilkey Colloidal Silver Testimonial“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.

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
