April 24, 2019 (repost from May 2018); by Paul Fassa, Silver Bulletin (UtopiaSilver.com) News Flash: NASA approves colloidal silver for international space station use. The International Space Station (ISS) has been in low orbit, hurtling 17,500 miles per hour between 200 and 300 miles around the earth’s equator now since its first phase of construction in 1998. It has been continuously manned with recycled scientists since then.
The huge ISS structure houses six scientists from several nations who remain for around a year or so before being relieved by others shuttled in. They are focused on observing and analyzing earthly matters, improving and repairing the complete structure, and learning new technologies to help humans survive long space journeys.
If you’ve seen the movie “Gravity” with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what ISS looks like. Of course, the movie is unrealistic, but the visuals are great.
Colloidal Silver Solves the Drinking Water Issue
The solution is to purify all the various forms of waste fluids accumulated within the space lab’s housing. Originally, iodine was used for that purpose. Effective but inefficient. The iodine had to be filtered out to ensure space lab scientists wouldn’t be taking in too much iodine, potentially leading to thyroid issues over time.
Using colloidal silver removed the need for filtering. Adding a trace of Epsom salts to the water helped mask any residual taste of recycled shower water, human breath condensation, perspiration collection, and urine to the point where it “tastes like bottled water” once you get over the psychological aspect of what your drinking, claimed NASA water substation manager Layne Carter.
Another advantage of using colloidal silver rather than iodine is colloidal silver can be created with water and using an electrical equipment. So the process can be cyclical, water disinfected and purified with colloidal silver can be used to make more colloidal silver to purify collected waste fluids and create more drinking and showering water.
This wouldn’t be possible if colloidal silver was toxic or even slightly unhealthy, as many mainstream medical, health agency, and media outlets would have you believe. And it wouldn’t be possible if colloidal silver’s microbial killing property was restricted to only bacteria. It is also anti-fungal and anti-viral.
Other Mainstream Misinformation that Shouldn’t Discourage Using Colloidal Silver as a Tonic
As usual, quality is paramount. Poor quality colloidal silver should be avoided. But there is every reason to use high-quality colloidal silver to both reverse infectious diseases and prevent infections from wounds.
Colloidal silver’s antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties are useful for both humans and animals. A little bit in your pets’ or livestock drinking water can protect them from diseases without causing problems. Higher doses squirted into their mouths can reverse existing diseases. It can also be used topically.
A common concern with colloidal silver involves probiotic or gut flora’s beneficial bacteria. Pharmaceutical antibiotics were developed while mainstream medicine began discovering or accepting the importance of probiotic activity in the gut.
So these pharmaceutical products were biocides, killing everything in their path, the good guys along with some of the bad. And they are often prescribed for viral infections even though they’re not anti-viral. Colloidal silver is also anti-viral.
After using pharmaceutical antibiotics, patients’ health often turns for the worse. Immunity is compromised and overall health deteriorates commonly enough for some MDs to encourage using probiotic supplements to compensate the damage done by their prescribed drugs.
It has finally become apparent that the most bacteria eventually adapt to synthetic pharmaceutical antibiotics after repeated use, making them useless. But the pharmaceutical industry’s profit motivation ignores natural silver’s record of not being outsmarted by crafty microbes. Instead, they rush to create more dangerous antibiotics than those that were getting outsmarted by germs.
Silver is Natural And Has Been Used For Centuries Without Any Apparent Lack Of Efficacy
The forms have been different. Older methods of silver for antiseptic purposes were crude, for example placing a silver dollar in a large container of whatever liquid that could otherwise spoil while unused. Now we have the science of creating consumable nano-particles in suspension with colloidal silver.
Dr. Jonathan Wright, a Harvard educated MD and founder of the world-famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington State states unequivocally:
“No matter how much a germ mutates, it can’t change enough to escape the damaging effects of colloidal silver. And in the process, the silver doesn’t harm human tissue or kill off the good bacteria in the intestine the way antibiotics and other medications do.”
Dr. Joseph Weissman, MD board certified immunologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School promotes colloidal silver with this statement:
“Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs. Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science – natural silver. I sincerely recommend that everyone have (sic) electrically generated colloidal silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal agent.”
Unfortunately however, the official government health agencies don’t agree. Instead, they publicize untrue negative properties of colloidal silver, claiming it’s useless if consumed orally and only has benefits when applied externally for skin infections. They are simply protecting the profitable status quo of pharmaceutical antibiotics, whether unwittingly or wittingly.
Finally, in Virginia, Howard Mitchell, a former chemistry teacher, conducted a series of experiments with colloidal silver. He found that it has no effect on acidophilus, the “good bacteria” found in the gastrointestinal tract.
He used much larger doses than necessary for destroying pathogenic microbes, yet the intestinal flora needed for a strong immune system an good overall health survived while the pathogens didn’t.
So ignore whatever negative commentary or exaggerated cautions you’ve read or heard about with colloidal silver. Have it on hand for many relatively inexpensive antiseptic uses without side effects. Just make sure you purchase from a manufacturer that produces high quality actual colloidal silver.
