A Ban on Colloidal Silver by Fall?

This is extremely important information, because the ban could come as early as this fall, only a few short months away, when the EPA is scheduled to make their final decision on the regulation of silver-based products

“ Ban All Colloidal Silver Products, or Regulate Them as Drugs,” says environmental group Friends of the Earth

Promises made by Friends of the Earth (FOE) not to pursue a ban on over-the-counter colloidal silver products turn out to be bald-faced lies; newly issued FOE position paper reveals their true intentions to have colloidal silver banned and regulated as a drug…

“ We believe that all over-the-counter colloidal silver products should be immediately withdrawn from the market and their sale should be banned (unless approved as a drug by the appropriate regulatory agency).Source

 

It look as though some people are out to stop you looking after your own health, Perhaps it might be wise to get yourself a colloidal silver Generator while they are still available!!! ,,its not an expensive investment

Many of people and even Govt agencies
dissagree with the FOE
here are a few

" Colloidal Silver Fabulous Facts"

"The presence of colloidal silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to say. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems."

"Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics which destroy beneficial enzymes, Colloidal Silver leaves these tissue-cell enzymes intact as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive single-celled life. Thus Colloidal Silver is absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants, and all multi-celled living matter."

"Colloidal Silver is the result of an electro-magnetic process that pulls microscopic particles from a larger piece of silver into a liquid such as water. These microscopic particles can more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body. Colloidal Silver works as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that all one celled bacteria, fungi, and viruses use for their oxygen metabolism. In short, the bad guys suffocate."From www.healthnews.com we quoted from the article

Recently, MSNBC conducted a very interesting follow-up broadcast with Paul Karason, the so-called “Colloidal Silver Blue Man.”

"Paul is the man whose skin turned blue after he ingested incredibly excessive amounts of colloidal silver daily, for over a decade." Once again, Matt Lauer, the MSNBC TV host of The Today Show, interviewed Karason. And overall, he treated Karason with respect and dignity.More importantly, Lauer got the story right.Original Story

He carefully noted that Karason’s doctors had given him a clean bill of health, and accurately stated that none of the rigorous medical tests Mr. Karason had undertaken could find any harm to his internal organs or nervous system from the excessive levels of colloidal silver he’d been ingesting daily for over a decade.

Well it's another case of someone taking something good to an unhealthy extreme! Coloidal Silver is actually a fabulous thing to have around the house, whenever you feel a bug coming on it will knock it right out before you get really sick.

Myth,,,CS destroys stomach Bacteria

"Former teacher of physics and chemistry, Howard Mitchell of Virginia, recently conducted a series of experiments with colloidal silver. He found that CS has no effects on acidophilus, the 'good bacteria' found in the stomach. Mitchell used concentrations forty times higher than what might be expected to destroy other forms of bacteria. It shows that even in large dosages, the intestinal flora will flourish. In fact, there is speculation that the silver ions may be advantageous in stimulating a vigorous growth of beneficial bacteria, helping to boost the immune system."

Are Colloidal Silver Nanoparticles Harmful to Human Cells?

Anti-silver environmentalist groups such as the International Center for Technology Assessment (ICTA) and the Friends of the Earth (FOE) claim that silver nanoparticles are harmful to human cells.

But the idea that silver nano-particles are harmful to human cells is ridiculous at face value.

In fact, as far back as the 1970's and 80’s the late Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. conducted groundbreaking research at Syracuse Medical University using tiny, electrically generated, sub-microscopic silver particles. And in human trials he found absolutely no harm to cells or tissues.

This, even though in many cases he generated the tiny sized silver particles directly into the tissue and bone of his patients using a low-voltage electrical device and pure silver mesh, or silver electrodes that were surgically implanted into his patients' infected wound sites. Not only did the silver nano-particles cure the infections (including many antibiotic-resistant cases of osteomyelitis), they also triggered bone healing and tissue regeneration -- hardly a harmful result.

What about toxicity? Can colloidal silver be harmful?

A 2006 clinical study from BYU (published in Current Science, Vol. 91, No. 7, 10 October 2006) documented the fact that adding colloidal silver to an antibiotic drug such as penicillin actually increases the efficacy of the antibiotic by a factor of as much as tenfold when used against antibiotic-resistant microbes.
In other words, the study demonstrated that standard antibiotics – including penicillin -- tend to work significantly better against antibiotic-resistant microbes when colloidal silver is added!
I n fact, since way back in the late 1800’s when medical researchers first learned how to run currents of electricity through pure silver wire suspended in water and created the first crude colloidal silver solution, colloidal silver has never lost its powerful infection-fighting qualities against the myriad of pathogens it’s been used to treat.

When Asked if they would have this Vaccine,,interesting reply

Medical experts agree that all victims of life-threatening infectious illness have one thing in common: a weakened immune system. The weaker your immune system, the more apt you are to contract serious infectious illness and disease when exposed to it.

You see, particularly as you age, your immune system begins to falter and sputter like an airplane running low on fuel. All too often, this happens because your daily diet is deficient in the nutrients needed to fuel a healthy immune response in the presence of infectious microorganisms

Becker wrote, "“What we have done was rediscover the fact that silver kills bacteria, a fact which had actually been known for centuries...All of the organisms we tested were sensitive to the electrically generated silver ion, including some that were resistant to all known antibiotics...In no case were any undesirable side effects of the silver treatment apparent.”

Dhyana Coburn is the coauthor of "The Wonders of Colloidal Silver". In a separate article entitled "Colloidal Silver - A Healthy Silver Lining" she adds more information as to the mechanism by which colloidal silver interacts only with harmful microbes:

"Colloidal silver kills invading microbes by dissolving an enzyme that metabolizes oxygen of primitive organisms. The process is an electrochemical reaction. The cell can't breathe, then suffocates and dies. That's why it works on all types of germs, including the super-germs. Metallic and chelated minerals carry a negative charge, but colloidal bioelectric minerals carry a positive charge. Therefore, another way colloidal silver inhibits germ growth is that the positive charge on the colloidal silver (particles) binds up with the negative charge on the pathogen. This causes an interuption of the biological function of the organism, which then cannot reproduce."

Colloidal Silver
Suffocates The Bugs
Primitive one-celled life uses a different method of oxygen metabolism.
When Colloidal silver comes into contact with any virus, fungus or bacterium it immobilizes the oxygen-metabolising enzyme, or chemical lung.
These disease-causing pathogens suffocate and die within minutes and are then cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and eliminatory systems.

Simply
How Colloidal Silver Works Against A Virus
A single virus will invade a living cell of body tissue.
The pathogen will take over the nucleus of the cell and alter its production/reproductive mechanism so as to replicate itself instead of the enzyme, hormone or other chemical the cell was intended to produce.

As the virus changes the cell for its own purposes, the cell reverts to a more primitive form of cell structure and chemistry.
The oxygen-metabolising enzyme, or chemical lung, in the cell wall also reverts and is vulnerable to the effect of Colloidal Silver.

The catalytic effect of the Colloidal Silver inhibits the enzyme which then cannot function to bring oxygen into the cell. The virus-producing cell now dies and is eliminated along with the millions of cells that end their usefulness each day.

How Colloidal Silver Works Against Bacteria.
Bacteria, which are single-celled & primitive, use an enzyme, or chemical lung, for their oxygen metabolism.
The presence of Colloidal Silver inhibits the enzyme, causing suffocation. The bacteria will be killed within minutes and without any effect on the surrounding tissue cells.

How Colloidal Silver Works Against Fungus
A fungus is a series of single cells having tiny tubes of the material of the cell wall stretched between the cells.
Fungus still exhibits that characteristic of any one-celled bacterium – a chemical lung which is immobilised by the presence of Colloidal Silver.
It takes only minutes to suffocate the attacking fungus.

Parasitic Infections
Taking larger doses spread over the day, for several days, should interrupt the life-cycle of the tiny, worm-like animals that burrow through a particular organ. These parasites reproduce by laying eggs which have the same characteristics of the oxygen-metabolising enzyme as the primitive single-celled bacterium.
Without their oxygen supply these eggs cannot hatch, and die.

Even the latest medical research demonstrates no harm to cells from nanosilver. In fact, research published in the June 2009 issue of the prestigious medical journal ACS Nano demonstrates that nanosilver in the bloodstream acts to prevent blood clotting, and that the presence of silver in the bloodstream causes no apparent harm to cells. (See the blog post below titled “NanoSilver Prevents Blood Clots; Doesn't Harm Cells.”)

Understanding Colloidal Silver

Dr. Paul Farber's Successful Experiences Using Colloidal Silver
Dr. M. Paul Farber is widely credited with bringing the powerful qualities of colloidal silver against Candida yeast infections and Lyme Disease to the attention of the general public, in the 1990’s.

In his book, The Micro-Silver Bullet, he goes into great detail regarding his battle against Candida yeast infection and Lyme Disease, which he was able to cure using a form of colloidal silver

Virologist Dr. Gordon Pedersen Recommends Colloidal Silver for Maximum Protection Against Swine Flu In spite of an FDA crackdown on companies touting colloidal silver as a Swine Flu preventive and remedy, a number of high-profile medical researchers and related experts have been recommending colloidal silver as a first-line of defense against the Swine Flu and other viral pandemics.

These include Dr Eric Gordon, MD, Dr. Kent Holtorf, MD, Dr. Sherry Tenpenny, DO, Major General Albert "Bert" N. Stubblebine III (former commanding general of the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command), Dr. Rima E. Laibow, MD, Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, Dr Rebecca Carley (the vaccine expert) and many others.

Dr. Gordon Pedersen Recommends Colloidal Silver


Dr. Gordon Pedersen, Ph.D., an expert in toxicology and virology who is associated with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and is Director of the Institute of Alternative Medicine, has joined the ranks of those advocating for colloidal silver usage in the face of coming viral pandemics.

In his new article, Swine Flu Influenza Type A/H1N1 Protection for Health Care Practitioners and Their Patients, published in the Anti-Aging News Journal, he repeatedly recommends silver to stop not only the virus itself, but also the secondary bacterial infections that cause diseases such as pneumonia, which set in after the body has been weakened by the virus.

Some countries completely dissagree with the FDA

On the basis of the achieved results we may conclude that by application of colloidal silver water was achieved significant success in treatment of patients with mild urinary infection, and in combination with antibiotic in grave urinary infections.More

Even Pravda, the top newspaper in Russia, recently recommended
colloidal silver for the Swine Flu, stating:

The best defense against swine flu, or any flu, is the age old remedy of colloidal silver. The metal silve r in its colloidal state can be safely consumed and used in the body. Bacteria and viruses cannot develop resistance to colloidal silver. Silver disables a vital enzyme and mechanism in all bacteria and pathogens so that they cannot survive. It is good to take a few teas poons of colloidal silver daily to maintain health. More coll oidal silver should be taken if experiencing illness Source

"No known disease-causing organism can live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of metalic silver. [This includes destructive bacteria, viruses, and fungi which, when compared to antibiotics, is one of the things which makes silver unique: antibiotics are specific to bacteria and, in some cases, fungi, but never viruses-Ed.] From his bacteriological experiments with silver, Dr. Henry Crooks has concluded, 'I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory experiments in six minutes.'" (Cross referenced: Health Consciousness, Vol 15, No. 4, "Report: Colloidal Silver" Ref. 1, p. 34. This report also states that all microbes were killed "with a dilution of as little as five parts per million, though there are no side effects whatsoever from higher concentrations.")

Looking back at all the trouble and roadblocks the FDA and the pharmaceuticals companies have caused with regard to Colloidal Silver Products, perhaps it has worked out for the best. Even the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)... they list no known toxicity level for Colloidal Silver, yet they have come up with a "safe" dose. It's important that these entities keep the fear and confusion alive because of the big money at stake.
