“We shall have a World Government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent”
–James Paul Warburg, banker
What do the Weaponized Bird Flu Hoaxers all seem to have in common? –they want you to take colloidal silver; buy it from them, drink it, wash with it, put it in the atomizer and breathe it in…..
The poisoning ‘risks’ are easily knowable, but what about other purposes? The only biological use for silver (Ag) is as a drug. It is neither an essential nutrient nor trace mineral . It’s a heavy metal, a known toxin, and “the exact mechanism of Ag toxicity is unclear“. It is common to find ‘dose’ recommendations on product sales websites equivalent to 10 to 30 ppm. At this dilution, a silver solution is conductive for electro-chemical applications. Is it odd, d’ya think, that the people promoting the pandemic and selling colloidal silver are also trying to warn you about ‘frequency weapons’? Silver is one of the most electrically conductive materials known, used in microcircuitry and ’wave guide’ technology for its ability to control and transmit radiofrequencies.
Colloidal metals are artificially created ’nano-particles’, ultramicroscopic, and their purveyors wish you to know that this is what makes them effective. Effective to do what?
According to www.microbecide.com
, “This advanced molecular technology allows us to engineer Microbecide with higher stability and create a molecular bond
that makes the silver ions more bioavailable, dramatically increasing their antimicrobial action…(Uptake): the organism is attracted to the organic acid base
[citric acid component] of Microbecide as a carbon or food source, taking up the silver ions. Silver ions readily bind with electron donor groups
(enzymes) blocking the cell respiration
pathway and interfering with components of the microbial transport system. Silver ions disrupt the metabolic and/or structural proteins on the organism’s cell membrane
causing lysing (bursting of the cell wall). Silver ions denature the cells DNA or RNA halting metabolic and reproductive functions.” This product claims to be “effective even against resistant strains of microbes.” Microbecide was not designed to be ingested
, however, “In the case of young children’s toys
or equipment, it is recommended that Microbecide be applied before and after each use
.”…..”safe, nontoxic,…to people, plants, and animals.” But very deadly to microbes.
According to microbiologist Bonnie Bassler in her TED Talk, “..You have an amazing interaction with these [bacterial] critters… [There are] ten times more bacterial cells than human cells in or on a human being… you have a hundred times more bacterial genes playing a role in you or on you for..life… I think of you as 99 percent bacterial… These are incredibly important. They keep us alive. They cover us in an invisible body armor that keeps environmental insults out. They digest our food. They make vitamins. They actually educate your immune system on how to keep bad microbes out.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVfmUfr8VPA
We are 90 percent microbes. Killing them is killing ourselves.
“Argyria” (pictured) is just one effect…..
The FDA has a clear position on colloidal silver:
“Colloidal silver products can have serious side effects”…”there is no scientific evidence to support their safety or effectiveness”….”manufacturers of dietary supplements, unlike manufacturers of drugs, do not have to prove their products safety and effectiveness to the FDA before it is marketed…The FDA issued a ruling in 1999 that no products containing colloidal silver are generally recognized as safe and effective.”
“Animal studies have shown that silver builds up in the tissues of the body…side effects from using colloidal silver products may include neurologic problems (such as seizures), kidney damage, stomach distress, headache, fatigue and skin irritation.”
How did colloidal silver ever gain a classification as a “dietary supplement”? The wikipedia says that “dietary minerals are the chemical elements required by living organisms…The term ‘mineral’ is archaic since the intent of the definition is to describe ions, not chemical compounds or actual minerals
. ‘Ions’ in this context refers to “free electrons” or atoms with an electron imbalance which can also be described as free radicals
. Free radicals, in turn, can be corrosively damaging to cells if they are not usefully neutralized by antioxidants (electron donors).
There is NO nutritional need for silver –zero–, although many, many websites make the claim that there is, such as this one:
which claims…” silver is also a nutrient that the body needs for healthy growth and repair“. This website also says that “individual needs will vary…” and goes on to recommend a dosage protocol:
“Start on 15ml under the tongue….3-4 days, then increase to 15ml morning and night for 30 days…this will give a general cleansing to the system. After this a maintenance dose of 10ml daily.”
And here’s a catch, “do not start this program if you do not intend to drink a minimum of one to two litres of water a day…”. In order to appear scientific, this webpage cites a study from a toxicology report which is citing another toxicology report summary out of context, conducted by one Dr. Altman who writes: (3) “Furthermore, upon terminating CS intake, it appears that as much as half the silver residing in body tissue will be purged through urine and feces (but more through feces as time goes on) in less than a month. Even this relatively short residence time could be reduced substantially if several litres of water were consumed daily.”
‘Altered-states’ does give a paragraph for “Side Effects”:
“Some people may feel achy, sluggish or may experience headaches the first few days after beginning Colloidal Silver. Do not worry, this is a normal ‘healing crisis’. When the body sloughs off a great many toxins at once, the elementary organs can become overloaded. Simply drinking lots of extra water [and laying down] should lessen the symptoms dramatically.”
Does this sound “safe” to you? Does it sound “non-toxic”?
Information on metal toxicity states: “Virtually all metals are toxic if they are ingested in large enough quantities…Metals previously unrecognized as hazards or at lower concentrations than previously recognized as harmful, and unrecognized accidents continue to be described….biological effects of exposure..are difficult to assess, as individuals differ in their response to similar exposure. Metals generally produce their toxicity by forming complexes (called ‘ligands’) with organic compounds. The modified molecules lose their ability to function properly, which leads to the malfunction or death of the affected cells. Metals commonly bind to biological compounds containing oxygen, sulphur, and nitrogen, which may inactivate certain enzyme systems or affect protein structure. In addition to this, light toxic metals may compete with or replace similar metals, for example lithium competes with the similar metal sodium. In acute poisoning, large excesses of metal ions can cause disruption of membrane and mitochondrial function and the generation of free radicals. Due to this, generalized clinical effects, including weakness and malaise, feature in most cases.”
The makers of “MesoSilver” (www.purestcolloids.com
) want you to think that “silver particles are non-toxic to humans
” and that you will be “Feeling Worse Before Feeling Better
” –what they call a ‘Herxheimer reaction
‘– and that their superior product is “true silver colloid…not silver ions
” because “Many products are advertised as being colloidal silver, but in fact are mostly ionic silver solutions
The colloid is actual metal particles suspended in solution.
The reference site given above contains the information that “microminerals contribute to good health if they originate from an organic source because they have essentially been processed. Plants take up minerals from the ground, digest them, making them ionic so that when consumed by humans, assimilation into the body occurs much more easily, and toxicity by accumulation does not occur. However, microminerals from inorganic sources, such as heavy metals can not be used by the body as they tend to build up in the tissues.”
–but silver is not is a nutrient micromineral, established by every known encyclopedic reference on nutitional minerals, AND it is mechanically processed from mined-and-refined ore.
The wikipedia entry for colloidal silver claims “a colloid is technically defined as particles which remain suspended without forming an ionic, or dissolved, solution. The broader commercial definition of ‘colloidal silver’ includes products that contain various concentrations of ionic silver, silver colloids, ionic silver compounds or silver proteins in purified water..typically manufactured using electrolysis (in concentrations of 30ppm or less) whereas concentrations of 50ppm or more are usually silver compounds that have been bound with a protein.”
The same entry from the wiki notes an interesting use of silver in horticulture; “Silver in ionic solutions like silver thiosulfate and silver nitrate
(not suspended elemental silver) has been shown to be an ethylene inhibitor by competing with ethylene for binding sites by the plant receptors…. Since ethylene is also involved in the ‘sexing’ of plants, this property of blocking ethylene synthesis is also used for forcing male flowers on female plants. As a result, the use of ionic silver solutions has become popular in cannabis cultivation.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colloidal_silver
In addition, wiki includes, “In 2002, the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) found that there were no legitimate medical uses for colloidal silver and no evidence to support its marketing claims. Given the associated safety risks, the TGA concluded that “efforts should be made to curb the illegal activity availability of colloidal silver products, which is a significant public health issue.”
Why would the Australians consider colloidal silver use “a significant public health issue”? The answer in part is an emerging array of silver-resistance in common bacteria.
“The sil-gene”: bacterial resistance to silver
Just like other antibiotics, silver usage is promoting the general emergence of “superbug” strains: Citing lab studies that date back to the 1970s, this article identifies “Evidence of silver resistance in wound bacteria..provided from the [United States] (McHugh et.al., 1975)…[showing] persistant Salmonella typhimurium infections..clinically resistant to silver nitrate. Silver resistance was transmissible to susceptible strains of Escherichia coli… A stable silver-resistant strain of Acinetobacter baumannii has been identified… [in] a strain of Enterobacter cloacae..genetic analysis..and the presence of the sil-gene complex was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction [PCR, analysis of DNA]…” http://www.nursingtimes.net/nursing-practice-clinical-research/bacterial-resistance-to-silver-based-antibiotics/201749.article
>>>Enterobacter cloacae, for example, is a pervasive problem in hospitals, inducing common infections of the respiratory tract, urinary tract, central nervous system, skin, soft-tissue, etc. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/216845-overview ; the common E.coli laboratory “workhorse” strain K-12 and the deadly 0157:H7 are known to be silver-resistant http://mic.sgmjournals.org/content/147/12/3393.full 
Overuse and abuse of antibiotics, such as the daily drinking of silver disinfectant, creates a population of users in which superbug strains can be expected to emerge and put the entire population at risk. There is a begging question here. If bacteria can develop silver resistance and pass on the sil-gene, are there other metals from which this genetic mutation will protect the bacteria? Will sil-genes become useful pieces of DNA in the creation of biological metamaterials for nanomachines?
…”Plasmid pMG101 is a..silver-resistant plasmid that also confers resistance to mercury and tellurite and to several [other] antibiotics…” http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1016/S0168-6445(03)00047-0/full ; “Bacterial plasmids encode resistance systems for toxic metal ions including Ag+, AsO2-, AsO4(3-), Cd2+, CO2+, CrO4(2-), Cu2+, Hg2+, Ni2+, Pb2+, Sb3+, TeO3(2-), Tl+, and Zn2+. ” http://lib.bioinfo.pl/pmid:8905098; possibly sil gene mutants confer these additional genetic heavy metal resistances, more than just mercury (Hg) and tellurite, to become desirable bioengineered agents for toxic remediation in the environment. The pMG101 and its siblings are “broad host” plasmids, carried by many species of bacteria, plant and animal and currently employed in genetic recombination applications for bioremediation, such as this: “Biodegradation of Aromatic Compounds by Escherichia coli” http://www.ncbi.nlm.gov/pmc/articles/PMC99040/
Nanomachines made of silver nanoparticles and “nano-silicate platelets” (AgNP/NSP) have been recently made as an antidote to silver-resistant bacteria, moving us all along a step in the direction of post-human biological control. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3117870/
“There has been a continuing battle between advocates of uses of Ag(I) preparations for health and medical benefits and government agencies regulating claims and products for more than 100 years. The American government view is that potential legitimate benefits have decreased dramatically over time and that what remains is a lack of established effectiveness for marketed silver products plus a potential (if not remarkable) toxicity of the products. The U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) issued a ‘final rule’ on silver drugs that appears in the Federal Register… Nevertheless, the ardent touting of such products continuesand wherever such human uses occur, there is a real potential for selection of silver-resistant microbes.” ['onlinelibrary.wiley' link above, section 3.6 "Other uses...'snake oil'" ]
And, the last, unanswerable question remains about the electronic properties of absorbed silver. Silver-ion selective electrode technology is used in electro-chemical sensors and computer-based instrumentation. At this website a formula for electrode solution is determined by “serial dilutions of the 1000ppm standard solution” citing those (implied) dilutions at 10 to 30ppm, then mixed with a buffer. 10-30ppm are precisely the ‘dose’ recommendations for ingestion. Is this seriously dangerous?
In another silver ion applications search, I came across this:
“Electrodeposition of a noble metal such as silver will produce localized persitant but reversible changes to materials parameters and these changes can be used to control system behavior.”
…but they’re not talking about “cells that burst”, of course, are they? –those would not be reversible…
Food storage material silver nanoparticles interfere with DNA replication fidelity and bind with DNA
Wenjuan Yang et al 2009 Nanotechnology 20 085102 (7pp) doi: 10.1088/0957-4484/20/8/085102
Abstract. Nanosilver is increasingly used in the food industry and biomedical applications. A lot of studies have been done to investigate the potential toxicity of nanosilver. But information on whether or how nanosilver particles bring changes in genetic materials remains scant. In this study, the replication fidelity of the rpsL gene was quantified when nanosilver particles were present in polymerase chain reactions (PCRs) or cell cultures of E. coli transformed with the wild-type rpsL gene. Three types of nanosilver (silver nanopowder, SN; silver–copper nanopowder, SCN; and colloidal silver, CS) were tested. The results showed that the replication fidelity of the rpsL gene was differentially compromised by all three kinds of nanosilver particle compared with that without nanosilver. This assay could be expanded and applied to any other materials to preliminarily assess their potential long-term toxicity as a food additive or biomedical reagent. Moreover, we found that nanosilver materials bind with genomic DNA under atomic force microscopy, and this might be an explanation for the compromised DNA replication fidelity.
After posting ‘Colloidal Silver’, a barrage of flak came my way which I wrote about in the post “Imposters and Hell-hounds” (see Quick links, blog index). I’m pursuing this subject further and the people behind the people…so far, very intriguing. Researchers of ‘NWO’ will recognize “paid opposition” –there’s a lot of money here with ‘alternative’ health (not necessarily ‘natural’ health as they would like you to believe) fronting international business consortiums who are controlling world conservation areas and implementing “debt-for-nature” schemes of the World Bank, et.al. One of the more eye-opening discoveries about CS is that the major manufacturer/distributor of bottled CS known as American Biotech Labs has a chain of ownership to former executives of Homeland Security… go figure.
In the meantime, the article below is an example of what happens, as is my response post. In the deception of the ‘natural’ label which is used to promote things like colloidal metals, remember what Einstein said, “atomic energy is natural, harnessing the power of nature..”

Colloidal Silver & Swine Flu: Dr. Mercola’s Tacit Retreat (& A Short Tutorial) by Ken Adachi (Sep. 7, 2009)
On Sep. 4, I posted a Letter to the Editor from Ed responding to his inquiry about an unusual and alarming statement made by Dr Joseph Mercola concerning colloidal silver in an article Dr. Mercola posted to his web site dated Sep. 1, 2009 1 titled “Warning: Swine Flu Shot Linked to Killer Nerve Disease.” In that article, Dr Mercola said that:
“there may be significant problems in using it [colloidla silver] for swine flu” and that”in many healthy individuals it is likely to elicit a severe cytokine storm reaction. This is basically a severe allergic inflammatory reaction that can occur in your lungs, and could be fatal. “
That’s a very serious statement to make if it were true, but if it were not true, then it would be a highly erroneous and reckless thing to say, as it plays directly into the hands of the current crop of colloidal silver debunkers (aka pharmaceutical shills) who are flooding the internet with wholesale hokum about the many “dangers” and “toxicities” associated with colloidal silver. One such pharmaceutical shill is someone who calls herself Jennifer Lake of http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/. Her August 17, 2009 blog posting is a virtual tour de force of condemnatory statements that would scare off even the most commited supporters of Nature-based medicine–if her statements were true–but since her highly deceptive rant is riddled with FALSEHOODS and contrived “scientific studies” paid for by the hidden hand of Big Pharma, it stands to reason that a physician, like Dr Joseph Mercola, who postures himself as a champion of natural medicne, needs to exercise far greater caution in making such alarmist statements about a subject of which he is obviously uninformed.
And since I came upon Jennifer Lake’s blog as a result of a Google search linking to Dr Mercola’s site, somehow I’m wondering if maybe Jennifer herself wasn’t the advisory source of the “new” information which caused Dr Mercola to “change his mind” about colloidal silver in his first posted version of that article? [I wasn't] Oh, yes, I forget to mention that the Sep. 7, 2009 version of the “Warning: Swine Flu Shot Linked to Killer Nerve Disease.” article was changed from the Sep. 4 version that Ed referred to in his letter to me. The Sep. 7 version had now deleted all references to the “severe cytokine storm reaction” that colloidal silver was “likely” to elicit (see below)….[continues article]
Another warning from Dr. Mercola
Look at the technology of metal “nano bar codes” (Nanoplex Technologies Inc) in the food chain http://citizen2009.wordpress.com/nano-food/ In addition to that, I’ve been reading up on nanocomposite ‘edible’ plastics and micro-silica (self-assembling polymer) additives — sounds like the ingredients of semiconductors being passed in food!
“Silver Sol” (made by the sol-gel process) is another CS product in the marketplace:
From the Wikipedia: ” Metalorganic compounds area class of chemical compounds that contain metals and organic ligands. Metalorganic compounds are used extensively in materials science
in applications such as metalorganic vapour phase epitaxy (MOVPE or MOCVD) or sol-gel processing using alkoxides… Applications include the manufacture of compound semiconductors and Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) in silicon-based semiconductors. Ultrapure metalorganics are required for many optoelectronic and microelectronic applications…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metalorganics
Next Colloidal Silver article: http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/10/17/every-silver-lining-has-a-black-cloud/
Before you consider any advice from the “Educate Yourself” website, be apprised that Mr. Ken Adachi is pushing the idea that “negative aliens” from outer space are behind the New World Order. He has “Insights on Zeta Reticulans” to help you sort out the good aliens from the bad ones so that you’ll know who your enemies are when the galactic space war comes to your hometown. http://educate-yourself.org/cn/zetainfo16sep05.shtml
This is not unlike many colloidal marketers who advertize that their silver products target only the bad bacteria, which makes about as much sense as bullets that kill only bad guys and pass through the good guys without harm.
Mr. Adachi has been required to remove his health claims about CS from his website, and he has apparently also removed ready-to-use CS products, but, although no longer engaging in direct marketing, “for a donation” equivalent to the purchase price and shipping cost, he offers a “premium gift” of a CS home generator:
[Educate Yourself webpage below]
We are not engaged in commerce.
To Obtain Premium Gifts
1. Within the USA
Send a donation as a US postal money order within the USA.
Leave all spaces BLANK on the U.S. postal money order you send as a donation. Do not write my name, your name, or any other information on the postal money order and leave the stub attached. Make a copy of the entire money order and keep it in a safe place. I immediately mark the amount of the donation as well as the premium gift items requested on your envelope when I first open the mail, so you can be sure that I have a record of the amount you sent. For your protection, I never enter names, addresses, E-mail addresses or telephone numbers into my computer. I only write your contact information on your envelope itself and nowhere else. As a backup, you can always stick a Post It note on the postal money order (or paper clip a piece of paper) with the your name, address, date, and amount sent as a secondary paper trail, but leave the money order itself BLANK. I am no longer in the banking business and now use U.S. postal money orders as a safe way to pay bills, etc. I hope you can understand.
It’s a good idea to wrap your money order in a single layer of aluminum foil to make it invisible to X-ray machines or human eyes and place inside a folded sheet of paper, which can be your itemized list for premium gifts or the body of our e-mail exchange, etc. If you feel comfortable about it, include a phone number. If there’s a problem, it’s much faster to just call you on the phone rather than go through the e-mail rigamaroll. .
Failure to follow these instructions will result in the return of your donation for correction.
PO Box 3046
Costa Mesa, CA 92628
2. From Outside the USA
For orders outside of the USA, send me an e-mailwith your request and I can provide information for making donations.
Itemize Your E-mail Order
When you send me your e-mail to confrim postage, list the items you desire in a numbered sequence-listing the specific name of the desired item, the suggested donation, and the subtotal for the entire order . E.g.
1. Deluxe Colloidal Sivler generator with AC adapter..$155
2. Orgone Protector pendant ..$75, etc
Subtotal of $230 + shipping
Tell me what state you live in and the ZIP code or what country you live in so I can calculate the postage. Outside the USA, I just need to know the name of the country.
If I have the item on the shelf and ready to go, I can usually send within a few days of receipt. Please note that I mark the date on all mail when I pick it up from the post office. The “delivery clock” starts for me from the pick up date, not from the date that you sent the mail. On average, it takes 4-7 days for First Class mail to be delivered to my post office box from within the USA, and a little longer for overseas mail, unless it was sent by Express or Priority delivery.
If I have to construct the item from scratch, please allow at least 3-6 weeks on average to fill your request, but sometimes it takes longer due to the quantity of orders coming in for handmade items and the quantity of hand made items requested within that order…
The Colloidal Silver subject is ongoing in the blog http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/10/17/every-silver-lining-has-a-black-cloud/ ; remarkably, through the heavy promotion on ‘Patriot’, ‘conspiracy’, ‘truther’ and ‘alternative health’ websites, urging self-medication with CS, I’ve determined its a ploy –a plot– to destroy the health of an active and outspoken segment of dissenting citizenry who protest the elimination of our constitutionally protected civil rights.
