Colloidal Silver & Clinical Research

by Ben Taylor

Colloidal Silver may be the biggest threat to the pharmaceutical cartel’s mega-money making antibiotic industry. They simply do not want any competition, even from a simple mineral with possibly the oldest historical use of any health and healing agent or mineral supplement. It matters not to the medical mainstream that the effectiveness of antibiotics is limited only to bacterial infections and even that use is becoming less and less effective. Colloidal silver is not a new product, not a new supplement, nor is it a new drug; it is simply a natural mineral in suspension or in solution in a water medium. Silver’s historical use as an anti-microbial agent in various forms is undeniable and until the advent of more profitable patented drug development by the pharmaceutical industry was even accepted by mainstream medicine. Ironically, that is when colloidal silver regardless of its unparalleled germ killing ability became the whipping-boy of mainstream medicine and government alike. This is one of those many cases in the self-protection mindset of modern medicine and their government agencies protectors where truth, science, and the public health be damned in favor of mainstream medical industry profits.

It is a common mantra by government agencies and mainstream medicine that, “there are no clinical case studies proving the safety and efficacy of colloidal silver”. The denial isn’t limited to colloidal silver, but to silver in general for that matter. If there were an admission that silver kills germs, then it stands to reason that silver in water will do no less. Therefore the lie is repeated over and over as a very effective propaganda tool. Ironically, the mainstream has even in modern medical times accepted the use of silver in some situations, burn wards for example in their use of silver bandages and silver impregnated creme and in drops for baby’s eyes to prevent bacterial infection at birth. The notion that there are no clinical studies proving the effectiveness and safety of silver is simply not true.

Although mainstream studies using colloidal silver (silver in water) may be limited, it is because of their fear of re-discovering a more effective antibacterial agent than antibiotics and then having to publicly admit it. Logically and factually, the mineral silver works the same to kill pathogens/germs whether used in a creme, a bandage, or taken internally in a water suspension. Following is a list of a number of clinical studies concerning the use of silver in various forms, from silver anti-microbial wound dressings to anti-microbial silver polymer for the treatment of venous leg ulcers to the use of ionic silver to promote healing:

Man’s knowledge of and use of silver is as old as mankind’s history and there has been volumes of research on silver for many decades. Alfred B. Searle, the founder of Searle Pharmaceuticals, which later became Monsanto Chemical Co., did scientific studies on silver and wrote a book about his research in the 1920s. Anyone claiming that credible research has not been done concerning silver is either intentionally lying or is simply ignorant of the truth and should not be in anything resembling a position of authority.
