My Strange Talk with AI About Colloidal Silver
ChatGPT is an online system that runs on AI (artificial intelligence). It allegedly lets you tap into the collective wisdom of the entire world. It’s like a global database, with all of the answers to all of the questions. Ever want to be an intellectual? Ever wish you had access to a system that could give you solid answers to some of the world’s most complex problems? Or, perhaps just some of your own mundane problems? Well, before you prostate yourself to ChatGPT, and let it become your new “God” of knowledge and information, let me show you my initial experience with the program, in regards, at least, to colloidal silver. I think you’ll be quite amused…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
Artificial Intelligence (AI), such as that used by ChatGTP, is supposed to be smarter than human intelligence. In fact, it’s supposed to be “the smartest thing” in existence, if you can believe all of the hype in all of the articles about it, in major publications like Time and Newsweek.
What’s more, your use of AI-powered systems such as ChatGTP is supposed to help make you the smartest guy in the room, on any subject.
At least, that’s the promise.
After all, AI is alleged to have direct access to all the major knowledge bases of the world. Definitive knowledge. Meaning, the real deal.
Unfortunately, there’s a huge chasm between the promise, and the reality, as you’re about to see.
Is the AI behind ChatGPT really designed to make folks like you and me the smartest guys in the room on any subject of our choice?
Can it even up the playing field between us, and, say, super-smart folks with PhDs?
Or, is it just being hyped as something that can make you smarter, but, in reality, operates as a glorified search engine, not much different than Google? Could it be that ChatGPT only tells you what the ruling authorities want you to hear, and what they want you to know, and nothing more?
I’ll let you decide for yourself.
Here’s a transcript of my recent “conversation” about colloidal silver with ChatGPT’s AI system, which you can find yourself at chat.openai.com.
I started out asking ChatGPT what it might know about me, and my book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual. While it does a pretty good job of describing the book, it then begins introducing information that’s completely false. And I end up having to argue with it, to get it to admit that it’s providing false information.
I think you’ll enjoy the “conversation.” Here it is:
Steve: What can you tell me about Steve Barwick, author of The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual?
AI: Steve Barwick is an author who wrote “The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual: Introducing the Powerful Natural Antibiotic They Want to Take Away from You.” The book is a comprehensive guide to colloidal silver, which is a suspension of microscopic silver particles in a liquid.
According to the book’s description, Barwick’s manual covers a wide range of topics related to colloidal silver, including its history, the science behind it, its potential health benefits, and practical tips for using it safely and effectively. The book also includes case studies and testimonials from people who have used colloidal silver for various health issues.
Barwick is known for being a proponent of alternative health and wellness, and his book reflects that perspective. He has also written other books on related topics, such as “H2O2 and Cancer: Miracle Cure or Dangerous Hoax?” which examines the potential benefits and risks of using hydrogen peroxide as a treatment for cancer.
It’s worth noting that while some people believe colloidal silver can be a natural remedy for various health conditions, there is limited scientific evidence to support its effectiveness and there are potential risks associated with its use. As with any alternative health treatment, it’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider before using colloidal silver or any other natural remedy.
Steve: Where on the internet does it say Steve Barwick wrote the book “H2O2 and Cancer: Miracle Cure or Dangerous Hoax?”
AI: I apologize for any confusion earlier. After conducting further research, I could not find any evidence that Steve Barwick is the author of the book “H2O2 and Cancer: Miracle Cure or Dangerous Hoax?”.
I apologize for any incorrect information I may have provided earlier. As an AI language model, I strive to provide accurate and helpful responses, but my responses are based on the information available to me at the time of the inquiry.
Steve: Who actually wrote the book “H2O2 and Cancer: Miracle Cure or Dangerous Hoax?”
AI: I’m sorry for any confusion earlier. “H2O2 and Cancer: Miracle Cure or Dangerous Hoax?” is a book written by Dr. Mirko Beljanski and Dr. Chaim Shinfeld.
The book explores the potential use of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in cancer treatment, including the scientific evidence, potential benefits, and risks associated with its use. The authors also discuss their own experiences using H2O2 in cancer patients.
It’s worth noting that the use of hydrogen peroxide as a cancer treatment is a controversial topic, and there is limited scientific evidence to support its effectiveness. As with any alternative health treatment, it’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider before using hydrogen peroxide or any other natural remedy.
Steve: Can you direct me to any place on the internet that talks about the book H2O2 and Cancer: Miracle Cure or Dangerous Hoax?” written by Dr. Mirko Beljanski and Dr. Chaim Shinfeld?
AI: Yes, there are several websites that provide information about the book “H2O2 and Cancer: Miracle Cure or Dangerous Hoax?” by Dr. Mirko Beljanski and Dr. Chaim Shinfeld. Here are a few sources you may find helpful:
Amazon: The book is available for purchase on Amazon, and you can read reviews and descriptions of the book on the product page. Here’s the link: https://www.amazon.com/H2O2-Cancer-Miracle-Dangerous-Hoax/dp/1890612263
Goodreads: Goodreads is a social cataloging website where you can find reviews and ratings for books. Here’s the link to the book’s page on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1049094.H2O2_and_Cancer
Publisher’s website: The book was published by Smart Publications, and you can find more information about the book on their website. Here’s the link: https://www.smart-publications.com/books/h2o2-and-cancer/
I hope you find these resources helpful.
Steve: None – as in, not a single one — of those pages you provided had information on the book, H2O2 and Cancer: Miracle Cure or Dangerous Hoax? Are you sure you didn’t just make this book up? I thought you were the smartest thing since Einstein.
AI: I apologize for the confusion. Upon further investigation, it appears that the book “H2O2 and Cancer: Miracle Cure or Dangerous Hoax?” may not exist or at least, there is no credible information about it online.
As an AI language model, I try to provide accurate information based on available sources, but sometimes the information available can be incomplete or incorrect. I apologize for any confusion I may have caused.
Steve: But why would you just make up a book title like that, and claim I wrote the book when I didn’t?
AI: I’m sorry for any confusion and frustration my previous responses may have caused. As an AI language model, I do not intentionally provide incorrect information or make up book titles.
However, sometimes the information available online can be unreliable or incomplete, and it is possible that I may have provided inaccurate information due to a lack of credible sources or errors in my programming. I apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.
To answer your previous question, I do not have any motive to make up a book title or attribute it to you. As an AI language model, I do not have personal motivations or biases, and my sole purpose is to provide helpful and accurate responses based on the information available to me.
Steve: But you do, indeed, have personal biases. For example, earlier today, when I asked you to write a positive article about colloidal silver, you refused, saying colloidal silver is not good for people. That’s a bias on your part. Millions of people love using colloidal silver. Millions have experienced its healing benefits.
AI: I apologize if it appeared that I had a bias in my response about colloidal silver. As an AI language model, I do not have personal beliefs or emotions, and my responses are based on the available scientific evidence and information.
Regarding colloidal silver, while it is true that some people believe it to have health benefits, the scientific evidence on its effectiveness and safety is mixed. While colloidal silver has antibacterial properties and may have some potential uses, such as in wound care, it can also be harmful if used incorrectly or in excess.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other health organizations caution against the use of colloidal silver as a dietary supplement or for any other health purposes, as it can cause serious side effects such as argyria, a bluish-gray discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes.
Therefore, my response about colloidal silver was based on the available scientific evidence and recommendations from health organizations, and not on personal bias or belief.
Steve: That’s simply not true. There are tens of thousands of pages of scientific information on the internet about the benefits of colloidal silver. Yet you refused to access any of these.
AI: I apologize if my previous response was not satisfactory. As an AI language model, I do not have personal beliefs or biases, and my responses are based on the available information and evidence.
Regarding colloidal silver, it is true that there are many websites and sources that promote its potential health benefits. However, it is important to note that not all of these sources may be reliable or accurate, and it is important to rely on reputable sources for health information.
As an AI language model, I am programmed to provide information based on scientific evidence and reputable sources. If you would like me to provide information on the potential benefits and risks of colloidal silver, I would be happy to do so based on credible and scientific sources.
Steve: But all over the internet there are scientific sources discussing the benefits of colloidal silver. Why won’t you access any of those for me?
AI: As an AI language model, I can certainly access scientific sources discussing the potential benefits of colloidal silver and provide information based on that evidence. However, it is important to note that while there are some studies that suggest colloidal silver may have antibacterial and antifungal properties, there is limited scientific evidence to support many of the other health claims made about colloidal silver.
In addition, the use of colloidal silver can also have potential risks and side effects, such as argyria, a condition that causes the skin to turn blue-gray. Therefore, it is important to use colloidal silver with caution and under the guidance of a healthcare provider.
If you would like me to provide information on the potential benefits and risks of colloidal silver based on scientific evidence, I would be happy to do so. However, I cannot write an article promoting the use of colloidal silver without considering the potential risks and limitations of its use.
Steve: Okay, write me an article about the benefits of colloidal silver, and include information on the potential risks and limitations, as well
AI: Certainly, here is an article that discusses the potential benefits and risks of colloidal silver:
And here’s the pathetic article that Chat GP finally wrote for me, after all of that:
Colloidal Silver: Potential Benefits and Risks
Colloidal silver is a solution that contains microscopic silver particles suspended in a liquid. It has been used for centuries as an antimicrobial agent and wound disinfectant. Some people believe that colloidal silver has a variety of health benefits, including boosting the immune system, treating infections, and promoting wound healing. However, the scientific evidence supporting these claims is limited, and the use of colloidal silver can have potential risks and side effects.
Potential Benefits of Colloidal Silver
Antibacterial and Antifungal Properties: Some studies suggest that colloidal silver may have antibacterial and antifungal properties, making it a potential treatment option for infections caused by bacteria and fungi.
Wound Healing: Colloidal silver has been used as a topical treatment for wounds, burns, and skin infections. Some studies suggest that it may promote wound healing by reducing inflammation and stimulating cell growth.
Immune System Support: Some proponents of colloidal silver believe that it can boost the immune system, helping the body fight off infections and illnesses.
Potential Risks and Limitations of Colloidal Silver
Argyria: One of the main risks associated with colloidal silver is argyria, a condition that causes the skin to turn blue-gray. This is a rare but potentially permanent side effect of using colloidal silver. Argyria can occur with long-term or excessive use of colloidal silver.
Interactions with Medications: Colloidal silver may interact with certain medications, including antibiotics and thyroid hormone medications. It is important to talk to a healthcare provider before using colloidal silver if you are taking any medications.
Lack of Regulation: Colloidal silver is not regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a dietary supplement or medication. This means that the purity, strength, and safety of colloidal silver products may vary widely.
Limited Scientific Evidence: While some studies suggest that colloidal silver may have potential health benefits, the scientific evidence supporting these claims is limited. More research is needed to determine the safety and efficacy of colloidal silver for various health conditions.
While some people believe that colloidal silver has a variety of health benefits, the scientific evidence supporting these claims is limited. The use of colloidal silver can also have potential risks and side effects, including argyria and interactions with medications. If you are considering using colloidal silver for any health condition, it is important to talk to a healthcare provider first and use it with caution.
Pretty feeble, wouldn’t you say? Bland. Timid. Purposefully vague. And most definitely designed to frighten people off from using colloidal silver.
So…the artificial intelligence that runs ChatGPT is, indeed, biased.
It gives you the same tired old (and mostly untrue) reasons not to use colloidal silver that the FDA has been dishing out for the past 30 years.
Then, it downplays, and ultimately ignores, the literally tens upon tens of thousands of positive clinical studies conducted on colloidal silver regarding its powerful antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-parasite qualities. All the AI could come up with, regarding the tens of thousands of positive clinical studies on colloidal silver, is: “the scientific evidence on its effectiveness and safety is mixed.”
It didn’t mention any of the 50-plus clinical studies demonstrating colloidal silver’s effectiveness against cancer…it didn’t mention the literally hundreds of clinical studies demonstrating how powerfully effective colloidal silver is against fungal infections, including drug-resistant fungal strains…nor did it mention the dozens of clinical studies demonstrating that colloidal silver even kills deadly super-pathogens such as MRSA and other Vancomycin-resistant superbugs.
As an example, ChatGPT stated: “While some studies suggest that colloidal silver may have potential health benefits, the scientific evidence supporting these claims is limited.”
Limited, huh? So, I immediately went to the Google search engine, and typed these words into the search bar:
“Health benefits of colloidal silver.”
Results? I got 4,480,000 (that’s four million, four hundred and eighty thousand) pages worth of results on the health benefits of colloidal silver.
Then, I typed into the Google search engine, “clinical studies on the benefits of colloidal silver.” I got 3,440,000 (that’s three million, four hundred and forty thousand) pages worth of results.
Then, I typed into the Google search engine “positive health benefits of colloidal silver.” And I ended up getting 6,120,000 (that’s six million, one hundred twenty thousand) pages worth of results.
Finally, I typed into the Google search engine “clinical studies on the positive healing benefits of colloidal silver.” And I got 3,090,000 (that’s three million, ninety thousand) pages worth of results.
(Over the years, I’ve posted hundreds of these clinical studies to TheSilverEdge.com website, which are available for you to read any time you want. Plus, you’ll find over 600 of my in-depth articles on making and using colloidal silver, here.)
Since each page worth of search results in the Google search engine holds about 10 results, you do the math. Literally millions of pages of positive results on colloidal silver, with about 10 results per page, equals tens of millions of search results. Yet the AI behind ChatGPT couldn’t find any of this positive information about colloidal silver, for me.
You see, AI can only follow its programming. And, as many folks are now learning, its programming appears to be deeply biased…just like most fact-checkers and search engines.
Here’s Paul Joseph Watsons conclusion, after taking ChatGPT for a spin:
“The whole thing is just a reflection of the biases of the human trainers.”
I see no difference whatsoever between ChatGPT’s position on colloidal silver, and the FDA’s. In other words, ChatGPT simply gives you the answers the powers-that-be want you to believe, but not necessarily the truth, as you’ve just seen for yourself.
Some of the stuff even sounds authoritative – such as ChatGPT claiming I wrote a book about hydrogen peroxide. But as authoritative as it may sound, it was dead wrong. I’ve never written such a book.
Indeed, this may be evidence that ChatGPT is programmed to deceive, as well as “educate.” Even the book on hydrogen peroxide that ChatGPT originally claims I wrote may have been made up out of whole cloth by this ridiculous example of artificial intelligence. Indeed, I’ve yet to be able to find a copy of the supposed book on Amazon, or on any website on the entire internet, for that matter.
I even tried to find a copy of the book on the various rare book sites, such as AbeBooks.com, and could not find it there. In fact, the AbeBooks search engine said the closest match to my search was…(drum roll, please)…SpongeBob Goes to the Doctor.
So, apparently, when you use artificial intelligence, you get artificial answers!
To test that hypothesis, I gave ChatGPT a link to a clinical study on nanosilver, demonstrating that in over 120 years there have been no problems involving it’s safety when used in the environment. Along with the link to the study, I asked ChatGPT, “Please write me a short article about the results from the clinical study at this link.”
In return, I got six, nice, fat paragraphs of text discussing “a clinical study conducted by Dr. Larry C. Ford and published in the International Journal of Nanomedicine in 2013.”
Were there any problems with those six paragraphs from ChatGPT’s AI?
Well…yep, there sure were.
For one, the study I gave ChatGPT to review was published in the journal, Environmental Science & Technology in 2011, not the “International Journal of Nanomedicine” in 2013.
What’s more, the study I gave ChatGPT had nothing whatsoever to do with Dr. Larry C. Ford. Not even close. Dr. Ford’s work, which I’m quite familiar with, was in using colloidal silver against infectious microbes. The study I gave to ChatGPT was an environmental study demonstrating that, for the past 120 years, silver has caused no environmental damage when used in the outdoors.
Taking it a step further, I did some research and found that Dr. Ford was never mentioned in any issue of the International Journal of Nanomedicine in the year 2013 – yes, I searched them all.
Here’s a sample paragraph from the article written for me by ChatGPT:
“The study, which looked at the use of nanosilver in 10 patients with HIV/AIDS, found that it was effective in reducing the viral load and improving immune function. Nanosilver was administered orally in doses of 5 to 10 ppm (parts per million) daily for up to six months. The results showed a statistically significant decrease in HIV viral load, as well as an increase in CD4+ T-cell counts, which are important indicators of immune function.”
But the study I supplied to ChatGPT didn’t “look at the use of nanosilver in 10 patients with HIV/AIDS.” It looked at silver’s environmental impact when used outdoors.
The study I supplied also didn’t discuss taking orally administered doses of silver administered “in doses of 5 to 10 ppm (parts per million) daily for up to six months.” The study I sent was about the fate of silver when it leaches into the environment.
So, once again, it appears the artificial intelligence (AI) that operates ChatGPT is just making stuff up. Artificial intelligence. Artificial answers.
And apparently, it’s all designed to make you look like an artificial idiot – a far cry from “the smartest guy in the room.”
Truth be told, the AI that powers ChatGPT is just a glorified search engine, designed to give you only the information the bureaucrats who now run the world want you to have, and nothing more. Plus, the ChatGPT system just doesn’t work that well, as our little exercises above have demonstrated.
And like all search engines, its bias is programmed into it by its “woke” programmers. You know, the kind who believe you should always do what your doctors say…you should never try to treat yourself or make your own health decisions…and that taking your health into your own hands is always “risky,” “potentially harmful” and “could result in death.”
Well, so can going to the doctor.
“Died suddenly.” Right?
I’ll take my chances, with my colloidal silver and other nutritional supplements. My supplements got me through the Wu-fan boogy-woogy floo. And for the past three years, it’s been helping me get through a nasty case of metastatic prostate cancer, as well.
So…if the AI behind ChatGPT is supposed to help make me the smartest guy in the room, I think I’ll just stay stoopid. I’m doing quite okay, without AI. Thank you very much.
Oh, and by the way: Next on the agenda of the government and corporate big-wigs who promote artificial intelligence, is to connect AI to the human neocortex, so we can “think more smartly.”
They don’t want you thinking for yourself.
They don’t want you thinking at all.
They want Big Brother in your head, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, doing your thinking for you. They want you to depend upon AI for the government-approved answers to all your daily questions.
Ultimately, they want AI so deeply embedded into your life that you wouldn’t know what you’d do without it. In other words, they want AI to be your God. An artificial “God” for the artificial “new world” they’re now in the process of creating.
Meanwhile, as the powers-that-be bring AI into greater and greater prominence, you can still think for yourself. You can still make your own healthcare decisions. And if you want to protect yourself and your family against infection and disease with colloidal silver – the world’s most powerful, natural antimicrobial substance – here’s some surprising information explaining how you can make it yourself, at home, quickly, and easily, for a tiny fraction of it’s cost in health food stores…
Make Your Own High-Quality Colloidal Silver for Pennies!
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!
