In the nineteenth century, colloidal silver -- also known
as Argentum colloidale, Argentum crede and collargolum
-- was a prominent treatment for everything from colds
to skin infections. In the 1940s, the FDA began its decades-long
oppression of medicinal silver under the guise that it
was unsafe; however, in reality, the FDA banned silver
because of the threat it poses to the antibiotics industry,
rather than any threat it poses for your body. If you'd
like to learn more about the FDA's campaign against silver,
be sure to download the Health
Ranger's Commentary on Curad bandages made with silver.
In his commentary, he not only praises Curad's new bandages,
but also details how astounding their FDA approval is,
given the FDA's historical campaign against the medicinal
use of silver.
Here's an interesting news bit from an issue of the Kiplinger
Letter, one of the largest and most widely read business
forecast newsletters in the United States:
"Silver's germ-fighting ability will get a workout
in new uses. The metal kills disease-carrying microbes
without the harmful side effects of chlorine, other sanitizing
chemicals. Silver will be laced into socks, dish towels,
toothbrushes. Even home appliances, heating and air systems.
Industrial uses too...treating water and cleaning food
the FDA has concluded that the risk of using silver
exceeds any unsubstantiated benefit,Why?
That's a pretty interesting news brief, considering that
the FDA has ruled that colloidal silver preparations are "not
proven safe and effective" as germ-killing
agents (FDA Final Ruling July 1999). Furthermore, for
the past six months the FDA and FTC have instituted a massive
ongoing campaign to stop colloidal silver manufacturers
and sellers from mentioning silver's medical qualities
in their advertising. In a recent press release which was
published on page A-1 of The Wall St. Journal and many
other U.S. newspapers, the FDA/FTC cabal bragged that dozens
of colloidal silver sellers were being forced to change
their advertising literature or remove their advertising
altogether. They further bragged that some colloidal silver
sellers were being issued fines of as much as $150,000
for "false advertising" (i.e., for stating in
their advertising that silver has germ-fighting and other
medical capabilities). And at least one colloidal silver
seller is now being taken to court by the feds!

Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration amended
its rules so that water-treatment products containing
substances like colloidal silver for which therapeutic
claims are made must meet the requirements of medicines
included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic
Goods. This means that such products can no longer
be legally marketed without proof that they are
safe and effective for their intended purpose.
The amendment was based on conclusions that:
There is little evidence to support
therapeutic claims made for colloidal
The risk to consumers of silver toxicity outweighs the value of
trying an unsubstantiated treatment, and bacterial resistance to
silver can occur
Efforts should be made to curb the illegal availability of colloidal
silver products, which is a significant public health issue .
Besides the use of silver as necessary
nutrient, large number of data from scientific literature
show that colloidal silver water may be used in treatment
or as adjuvant in treatment of large number of different
diseases and pathologic conditions.
The most important
effect of colloidal silver water is
in treating infectious conditions caused
by bacteria, fungi and viruses. Such
a treatment may be from outside (treatment
of skin and mucous membranes) as well
as per os (through the mouth) by intake
of colloidal silver water in treatment
of systemic infectious diseases.

Reviews in the scientific literature on colloidal silver products
have concluded that:
• Silver has no known function in the body.
• Claims that there can be a "deficiency" of silver in the body
and that such a deficiency can lead to disease are unfounded
.• Claims made about the effectiveness of colloidal silver
products for numerous diseases are unsupported scientifically. hmm

Equally interesting is that in July 1999 the FDA specifically
ruled that silver gels and ointments -- which are applied
as an antiseptic and santizing agent to external cuts and
scrapes rather than used internally -- were to be altogether
banned as they had no proven legitimate medical uses(interesting
how the FDA Just Approved Silver-Based Bandages for Over-The-Counter
Sales.). And indeed, in 1999 the FDA quickly had
these products taken off the market. Yet here we see big
business and big industry getting ready to use silver as
an antiseptic and santitizing agent in numerous external
applications, including as as a water treatment sanitizer,
a food processing gear sanitizer, and even having silver
laced into dish towels, socks and toothbrushes as a disenfectant
agent! Hey, either it works for external purposes,
or it doesn't -- you can't have it both ways.
If you have been wondering why the feds have been so adamant
over the past year about pushing colloidal silver manufacturers,
sellers and users as far into the shadows as possible,
you are now getting a glimpse of the reason. Yes, big business
and big industy have BIG plans for using silver as a disenfectant/antiseptic/sanitizing

The comeback of silver in medicine began in the 1970's.
The late Dr. Carl Moyer, chairman of Washington University's
Department of Surgery, received a grant to develop better
treatment for burn victims. Dr. Harry Margraf of St. Louis,
as the chief biochemist, worked with Dr. Moyer and other
surgeons to find an antiseptic strong enough, yet safe,
to use over larger areas of the body. Dr. Margraf reviewed
22 antiseptic compounds and found drawbacks in all of them.

pneumonia are very difficult to fight with traditional
antibiotic treatment; moreover, people with weakened immune

especially prone to them. For a weak immune system, these
types of pneumonia are sometimes unbeatable, making alternative
measures a necessity. "Dr. Marchial-Vega had considerable
