Every Silver Lining Has A Black Cloud


*
There is no longer any doubt in my mind that Colloidal Silver ingestion is an insidious plot against American patriots who are being set up to die: and by their own hands!  Use of pandemic fear and the many fakeries of  ‘alternative health’ which front for large multi-national corporate interests are actively engaged in the illusion of ‘health freedom’ to peddle this poison to the ‘informed’. Nano-silver is probably on its way to be restricted shortly as an environmental hazard for very good reasons. Should such (EPA) restrictions or bans on metal-colloid pesticides become law, only the colloidal silver peddlars will lose –you, on the other hand, can still make it at home if you choose. It’s so cheap once you get started, the bottles to store it in are far more expensive than the liquid, BUT the direction of research on people intentionally drinking CS is so alarming you may decide to stop immediately and get on a detox/anabolic/probiotic regimen to protect having a future life. If you’re a young man, drinking colloidal silver may impair your ability to have healthy children, or any children.

Prerequisite to understanding the context of this post is the introductory piece: https://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/08/17/colloidal-silver/

The current title is inspired by this document on silver-resistant bacteria: “A note of warning: colonies of bacteria exposed to Ag(l) show black pigmentation that is likely to be reduced metallic Ag(0)...”  http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1016/S0168-6445(03)00047-0/full; from the same document:

After the 2001 anthrax scare in the USA, the Mayor of Tampa Florida publicly  called for adding Ag(I) to municipal drinking water as protection against  anthrax and HIV (unlikely to be effective, but equally unlikely to do harm)… In essentially all  situations, open public testing to demonstrate efficacy or harm is not available… What is needed for research? With the availability of the genes for silver  resistance, we have identified closely related genes in bacteria from  environmental and clinical environments and from diverse geographical locations  (A. Gupta et al., in preparation). These findings should eliminate recent  skepticism about the existence of silver-resistant bacteria. Now that the means  for identifying silver resistance determinants in Enterobacteriaceae is  available, similar efforts are needed with other common pathogens… The wide and uncontrolled use of silver products may result in more bacteria  developing resistance, analogous to the world-wide emergence of antibiotic- and  other biocide-resistant bacteria. Such resistant  microbes would be detrimental to clinical and hygienic uses that depend on the  microcidal properties of silver.” [section4] http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1016/S0168-6445(03)00047-0/full
   Bacterial silver-resistance and the threat of superbugs which is rapidly narrowing the “window of opportunity” for microcidal/antibiotic usage is the understandable looming concern in official health policy circles for having colloidal silver use restricted as an unregulated product. I don’t doubt it’s  also the ‘joke’ in American Biotech Labs’ naming of their popular product “ASAP”.

After writing an initial article on colloidal silver, I met with a barrage of biting retorts here at this blog. It piqued my curiosity. The editor of “Educate Yourself” website, Ken Adachi, launched an attack not only on me but on Dr. Joseph Mercola (http://www.mercola.com) suggesting that Dr. Mercola was ignorantly uninformed for warning his readers that CS could provoke “a severe cytokine storm”. Adachi takes credit for a retraction of that statement by Dr. Mercola –a situation of even greater concern and curiosity. The “cytokine storm”, which is an overreaction of the inflammatory response of the immune system is considered the cause of death in the 1918 Spanish Flu of the “healthy adult” population between 20-40. Mr. Adachi did not simply sqeal like a man getting his pockets picked. He invented an accusation that I’m a “pharmaceutical shill”, that Dr. Mercola is uninformed and under his influence, and that numerous “followers” of his loyally littered my blog with propaganda, to the point of opening false email accounts in my name. I figure I must be ‘over the target’, and that was the first salvo.

But if YOU don’t DIE, then WE can’t have a PANDEMIC, eh?

Since the time of publishing my ‘Colloidal Silver’ article here on the blog and the subsequent reaction, I’ve been following the trail of some of the CS peddlars. The corridors advance down paperless pathways to areas of ‘guilt by association’, and the implications are potentially enormous and dangerous to follow but more than that, the layers of deception are preventively daunting and confusing as is ever the case. Such is the war upon you. “All war is deception” –Sun Tzu.

Excerpts from the link above, regarding ingested colloidal silver:

..”silver nanoparticles can make adhesive interactions with cellular membranes and produce highly reactive and toxic radicals like reactive oxygen species which will cause inflammation and destroy cells like mitochondria..”

..”Silver affects denitrification bacteria such strongly that, in reality, disrupts the bacterium driven environmental denitrification processes..” [necessary in balancing microbial mitigation of the ecosystem; no real ecologist could support silver microbecides in the environment, and no real doctor/healer or health authority could support it in You beyond a critical life-saving measure]

..[nanosilver] can enter through the blood-brain barrier and accumulate in large motorneurones in the brain stem and spinal cord, neurons in cerebellar nuclei and glia…it is now known that the biological half-life of silver in the CNS is longer than in other organs..”

“It is known and acknowledged that long-term use of colloidal silver or silver salts..deposit metallic silver under the skin and abdominal viscera…manic depressive psychosis will develop at about the same time if not a short time after cutaneous argyria has been diagnosed. It leads to a ruptured aortic aneurysm and finally death.”

..”It shows toxic effects on human-friendly microbes..[in the environment]. These organisms deliver many crucial nutrients which are most essential in soil formation..”

The Debt-For-Nature Scheme


“Debt-for-nature” is ‘conservation’ policy of the World Bank and affiliated NGOs around the world who are leveraging individual land-holders and governments to swap their debt with real estate, often prime ecological jewels that then come under NGO management. It’s an amazing ‘protection’ racket taking place under the auspices of global environmentalism, funded by national tax monies and private financial/philanthropic institutions. I started looking into this over a controversy generated by the ‘safety’ of ingesting colloidal silver, believe it or not, when an article I posted here garnered some vehement reactions.

It appears that at least some of the promoters of medicinal colloids are fronting Big Money operations that participate and profit from the debt-for-nature schemes. I was already aware that ‘alternative health’ circulars, particularly on the internet, were a pipeline for disinformation about coming catastrophes like the Bird Flu/Swine Flu Pandemic now upon us. One online magazine in particular that represents this activity is ‘the Natural News’ edited by ‘the Health Ranger’, Mike Adams. Mr. Adams lives in Vilcabamba Ecuador in a paradisical conservation zone that is part of the Andean corridor, an international use-limited area that is quickly maximizing its capacity for private ownership. Adams arranges ‘real estate’ tour trips around Vilcabamba in addition to major eco-tourism enterprises, but if you’re a buyer you’d better hurry up.

The Natural News is owned by Truth Publishing International, Ltd, a corporation chartered from Taichung, Taiwan, that also owns the News Target Network and a radio web, viewable here http://www.islaearth.org/community-action.php?page=49 The material from ‘Truth’ is indicative of interlocking relationships with Agora Publishing (or Agora Group) from Baltimore, Md., a large enterprise for international travel, real estate, investment, and health. Subsidiary, Health Sciences Institute (http://hsibaltimore.com) markets products from Northstar Nutritionals (www.northstarnutritionals.com) that has a few items to sell –like ‘Soothanol X2’ a DMSO/herbal tincture for pain relief, 1 fluid oz. at $49.95– but this appears to be mostly a business of information.  Agora, a name taken from the Greek for ‘marketplace’, is first and foremost about making money with money. The owner/founders of Agora have invested deeply to profit from general and specific disasters like economic collapse and the Swine Flu Pandemic. One associate of Agora founder Bill Bonner, a Mr. Addison Wiggin who heads the multi-million dollar financial research, wrote “The Demise of the Dollar..and Why It’s Even Better for Your Investments” and issues special-reports to its membership like the “Single Best Way to Make Sure You’ll Never Run Out of Money” which appears to be a financial mechanism he calls “The Endless Paycheck Portfolio”.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Bonner_(author)
http://www.agora-inc.com/international.htm

I’ve a feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg in comprehending the business nature of Agora (see http://webindexnet.wordpress.com ); doubtlessly so in the scope of the debt-for-nature activity. According to the wikipedia, Vilcabamba Ecuador became a haven for international expatriates beginning in the 1960s as a community slowly took root there. By the 1990s, the native Ecuadorans themselves were forced to emigrate for lack of work (or finances), many resettling in Madrid Spain and No. America. Were these engineered real estate turnovers? Vilcabamba is a truly incredible location, poised below the reach of the Podocarpus National Park, one of the most bio-diverse and precious places on earth.

http://www.nature.org/wherewework/southamerica/ecuador/work/art5120.html (site of The Nature Conservancy, $5.42 billion in assets for 2007)

Bill Bonner, noted from the wiki link above, wrote in his book “Mobs, Messiahs and Markets” that “mass delusions are part of the human condition”. Capitalizing on them, after all, must be good business.

…and if you’re considering some Vilcabamba real estate, Mike Adams wants you to “get it”  first by reading this, “Guiding Principles for People Looking for Vilcabamba, Ecuador Real Estate” http://www.greenlivingnews.com/1057_Vilcabamba_Ecuador.html If you ‘pass go’ here are some of the neighbors you’ll have in Vilcabamba http://newparadigmdigest.com/tag/entrepreneurs/ with their own contact info. Btw, I have no problem with ex-pats, I wish them blessed and happy lives. What interests me are the larger forces at work that make these situations appealing in the first place. It’s in everyone’s purview to have a high-quality life wherever and however they choose to live.

Agora Financial publishes a journal called The Daily Reckoning, editor Addison Wiggin, featuring contributions from ‘staff’ such as Lew Rockwell (LewRockwell.com), Gerald Celente (Trends Research) and Dr. Ron Paul (US Congress) http://dailyreckoning.com/cast-of-characters/ This group, and the extended arms of Agora, advocate nation-building investments in developing countries that often include international projects funded by US taxpayers. Non-profit Agora Partnerships USA, for example, uses ‘micro’ venture capital and US tax-paid grants to seed entrepreneurial programs abroad and build ‘sustainable economies’ for other countries. Agora Partnerships USA shares an office in Washington DC with USAID, United States Agency for International Development, and it’s TechnoServe program.

http://www.usaid.gov/sa/usaidsa/technoservepress.pdf
The same building hosts the Economic Research Services of the US Dept of Agriculture, it’s primary policy, financing and forecasting service for domestic and global planning. Agora appears to be well within the loop, so this is about far more than hiring a Health Ranger to gatekeep for Shangri-la.

USAID: http://www.state.gov/s/d/rm/rls/dosstrat/2004 “August 20, 2003 The Department of State and Agency for International Development (USAID) Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2004 to 2009 sets forth the Secretary of State’s direction and priorities for both organizations in the coming years. The Strategic Plan supports the policy positions set forth by President Bush in the 2002 National Security Strategy and presents how the Department and USAID will implement U.S. foreign policy and development assistance.”….

DEBT-FOR-NATURE, How It Works:

[document excerpt]
“Debt for Nature was developed by Dr. Thomas Lovejoy in 1987 during his work with the World Wildlife Fund. Environmental groups would purchase shaky foreign debt in the secondary market at the market rate, which would be considerably discounted, and then convert this debt at its face value into the local currency to purchase biologically sensitive tracts of land in the debtor nation for purposes of environmental protection. Most of the world’s largest rainforests are located in poor states such as Brazil, Indonesia, Malaysia and Madagascar. ‘The first swap that happened was in 1987 between the Bolivian government and Conservation International’.
   There are three main parties involved with a Debt for Nature swap: an international conservation organization, a domestic conservation organization, and a developing country’s government….The three most active international organizations, which are all based in the U.S., are Conservation International, The Nature Conservancy and the World Wildlife Fund. The steps needed don’t vary much from state to state. The conservation organizations provide a proposal to the developing countries government, seeking an agreement. Once an agreement has been reached, they have the World Bank convert the state’s debt into the local currency. The currency is converted into bonds which go into an environmental trust…
   The biggest thing once the agreement’s been reached is then their enforcement. The UN has the United Nations Environment Programme for Environmental Development. Their purpose is to provide leadership and encourage partnership in caring..informing, and enabling nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations. They are not an enforcement body, which means there is no international body enforcing the terms of the agreement. No one is there to ensure the developing states will keep their end of the agreement made. And even if there was, once the debt has been paid, the developing country can cut down the rainforests and not have to pay back the conservation organization that paid a portion of their debt…”
 http://www.scribd.com/doc/15074774/Debt-for-Nature   It should be made very clear that despite this last comment about a country cutting down the rainforests, the conservation organization owns the land, and it is they who may cut down trees or sell the property, depending on whatever discretionary agreements are arranged in the acquisition process.

Conservation International, founded 1987
According to http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Conservation_International , ‘CI’ is engaging in eco-imperialism, as are the other NGOs, noting that “In 1997, CI signed a comprehensive bioprospecting agreement with California-based company Hyseq which specializes in genomic sequencing. CI agreed to pre-screen drug candidates derived from flora and fauna samples, and provide regular reports on its research findings to Hyseq. As well as an initial contribution, Hyseq would pay CI on a country basis, and an annual fee. Hyseq is free to pursue intellectual property claims over any results.”

“In Panama, CI worked with Novartis, Monsanto, and others, in ‘ecologically guided bioprospecting’ seeking pharmaceutical and agricultural products….In Surinam it cooperated with Bristol Meyers Squibb with its ethnobotanists collecting plant samples”….”A June 2003 report by Chiapas-based [social activism org] dubbed CI a Trojan Horse of the U.S. government and transnational corporations. It revealed that CI’s program of flyovers –part of their USAID-supported ‘environmental monitoring’ program– flew over areas occupied by Zapatista communities in planes which bore USAID markings…”

Three of CI’s main personalities:
*Peter A. Seligmann, co-founder, CEO and chairman http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Peter_A._Seligmann, merging ecology, banking and philanthropy
*Mr. Seligmann’s uncle, Henry H. Arnhold http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Henry_H._Arnhold, international banker, CFR member, 1937 German emigre who transferred his business to New York City –history of his banking firm here, Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder, Inc. http://www.asbai.com/firm_history.aspx which is a principal holder of George Soros’s Quantum Fund 
*Russell A. Mittermeier, president http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Russell_A._Mittermeier, scientist, World Bank Task Force leader

World Wildlife Fund, founded Sep.11, 1961 in Switzerland
WWF is the world’s largest independent conservation organization, founded by Julian Huxley, Max Nicholson, Peter Scott and Guy Mountfort, who had decades of “experience linking progressive intellectuals with business interests..” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Wildlife_Fund. In 1986 it changed its name to World Wildlife Fund for Nature and issues two yearly publications of the “Living Planet Report”.
Listed at http://www.worldwildlife.org/who/board/index.html :
*Chairman, Bruce Babbitt, president of *Raintree Ventures, former US Secretary of the Interior (Clinton Admin) and prior Governor of Arizona. [ “Raintree Ventures and Raintree Strategic Consultancy are subsidiaries within the Westcomb Group which focus on private equity transactions”, founded in 2000 by Mr. Pang Seng Tuong as “one of the first boutique investment banks in Singapore” http://www.westcombfinancial.com/AR/ar2008.pdf and http://www.greenglobal-resources.com/cms/files/ec080429.pdf incorporated in Bermuda.] As of June, 2009, Babbitt took a seat on the Board of the Lincoln Institute for Land Policy which concerns itself with “use, regulation, and taxation of land” http://www.lincolninst.edu [press release http://atlincolnhouse.typepad.com/pressroom/2009/06/index.html
*CEO/president (since 2005) Carter Roberts, formerly worked for The Nature Conservancy
*Vice-Chair, Jared M. Diamond, biologist at UCLA, educated at Cambridge (UK) and Harvard, principal spokesman for the Long Now Foundation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Now_Foundation which is a San Francisco based NGO in the process of ambitiously cataloging everything on the planet and integrating information systems ( former*Vice-Chair, Lawrence H. Linden of Goldman Sachs ) Treasurer, Roger W. Sant, co-founder and Chair of AES Corp/utilities…..and on the Board of Directors, Thomas Lovejoy mentioned above, who was a former US Asst. Secretary for External and Environmental Affairs and ‘Science Advisor’ under the Clinton Admin. to (Sec. of the Interior) Bruce Babbitt. Lovejoy was also the Chief Advisor to the President of the World Bank as well as the World Bank ‘Specialist for the Environment for Latin America and the Carribean’. http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=World_Wildlife_Fund_US

The Nature Conservancy, founded 1951
Oldest of the three here, TNC was reformed out of the Ecologists Union by founder Bob Marshall, the son of well-known zionist Louis B. Marshall. It chartered it first chapter in New York in 1954 and made its first acquisition of the Arthur W. Butler Memorial Sanctuary. In 1988 TNC performed a debt-for-nature swap in Costa Rica for $240,000 worth of debt, and in the same year contracted with the US Dept of Defense (DOD) to manage 25 million acres of military lands. The new CEO and president of TNC is Goldman Sach’s Mark Tercek, who took his place in June 2008, following an appointment from The Nature Conservancy’s Chairman of the Board, Hank Paulson, to Goldman Sach’s Center for Environmental Markets in 2006. Tercek joined Goldman Sachs in 1984. http://www.nature.org/pressroom/leadership/art24763.html

“The Nature Conservancy job puts [Tercek] in a position to have a big impact. The Conservancy is by far the world’s biggest conservation group, with an operating budget of nearly $500 million, about 3,600 employees including hundreds of scientists, and chapters in all 50 states and 36 countries…Tercek is looking to build alliances with other NGOs –the Nature Conservancy has joined the US Climate Action Partnership, for example– as well as with business.” http://www.marcgunther.com/2009/09/13/the-nature-conservancys-mark-tercek-sees-redd/

Dubious activities of the The Nature Conservancy are reviewed by author Ron Arnold in his book “Undue Influence”, http://www.undueinfluence.com/nature_conservancy.htm using year 2000 figures which reckoned the assets of TNC worth $2.8 billion –2007 figures show double that amount, and according to answers.com “On average, 1000 acres a day are added to its system of nature preserves, the world’s largest. When TNC cannot buy desired property, it sometimes attains conservation easements restricting use of the land for tax benefits.” http://www.answers.com/topic/the-nature-conservancy

How Does It Really Work?

These swaps appear to have complex arrangements involved concerning ownership and stewardship. Though I have a whole lot yet to learn and documents to find, for example, the USAID website here describing recent debt-for-nature swaps looks like an incredibly good deal for the conservation NGOs, another stick-it-to-the-US-taxpayer and an Agenda 21 social experiment in affected people who must relocate.  http://www.usaid.gov/our_work/environment/forestry/tfca_descs.html

 A deal made with Costa Rica in September of 2007 has “the U.S. government, Costa Rican government, Central Bank of Costa Rica, Conservation International and The Nature Conservancy agree[ing] to reduce Costa Rica’s debt payments to the US by $26 million over the next 16 years. In return, the Central Bank of Costa Rica committed to pay these funds into a debt-for-nature program to support grants to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other groups to protect and restore the country’s important tropical resources”.

According to this article, http://www.prweb.com/releases/conservation/nature/prweb562087.htm the United States Treasury paid $12.6 million “appropriated by the Tropical Forest Conservation Act (TFCA), with Conservation International and The Nature Conservancy providing an additional $1.26 million each to the purchase of the debt at a discounted rate..” So the US actually paid a total of $38.6 million for the deal. IC and TNC bought themselves 16 years of privileged ‘work’ at a combined cost of $2.5 million to run an eco-concession out of Costa Rica. And then what? We have yet to see the conclusion of any one of these debt-for-nature swaps. If you think that’s a bargain for restoration, consider that the ‘prweb’ article assesses the progress already made in Costa Rica without the swap, which had reforested more than 30% of lands previously cleared. The amount of land actually coming under NGO management through the swap is not named; 6 areas are
broadly referred to, however, in this blog item of the Tierra Pacifica community, which appears to reference a reputable media source, the acreage involved is noted to be 1000 acres. Is this possible, or just a local piece? http://tierrapacifica.blogspot.com/2007/10/costa-rica-and-us-trade-debt-for-nature.html Tierra Pacifica is a newly developed master-plan enclave on 220 acres poised between a protected mangrove estuary and the Pacific –fully gated with a guard house, modern amenities, new public paved road that runs directly to the Liberia International Airport– http://www.tierrapacifica.com/ .  Is this the kind of ‘sustainable’ development that USAID and the TFCA approve in determining a mandate that “developing countries with critically important tropical forests meet certain political and economic requirements to be eligible for debt-for-nature swaps.”?

Guatemala 2006 – the U.S.’s first swap

“In the..deal, the United States government contributed about $15 million toward the cancellation of [$24 million of] Guatemalas’s debt, said Clay Lowery, assistant secretary of the Treasury…” (that’s a $39 million start-up cost )…”The bulk of the money generated by the debt forgiveness will go to private organizations…  Eligible countries must have democratically elected governments and a suitable economic reform program in place and they must cooperate with the United States on drug enforcement and counterterrorism efforts.” http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/02/world/americas/02conserve.html

Guatemalans in the way:  “Since the Maya Biosphere Reserve..was created in 1990, people have steadily moved in… To stem this flow,..The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the Guatemalan government, and [a Guatemalan NGO], experimented with a new strategy in 1996..to see if [people] were open to the idea of small-scale voluntary resettlement. While resettlement is common in the develop realm, it is not we encounter much in conservation. In fact, we generally shy away from it..due to the social stigma it carries. Most resettlement projects..continue to be non-voluntary. The voluntary..Guatemala initiative maes it fundamentally different..and it may be the key to resettlement finding its place among conservation strategies.

“..The idea was to move families to areas more appropriate for development [where non-voluntary relocations tend to occur].. closer to public services. Most of the families..never truly settled down because they were unable to buy land and, therefore, were always squatting and living with..uncertainty… As such, land title is crucial for resettlement.

   “..The thinking behind the plans goes like this. If a community agrees to move, the government and collaborating NGOs find it a piece of legal land.. physically move the community.. give them access to a long-term low-interest loan, and provide technical assistance to help them adapt to the new area… If the families are not satisfied or cannot adapt to the new area, they will return to the protected areas, thus defeating the biological and social objectives of the resettlement… Resettlement is not easy… Ideally, an entire small-to-medium-sized community is resttled as a whole. But that’s not always possible. Land is scarce [which is why people took residence in reserves in the first place].
   “..The typical solution is to settle a smaller community into an already existing community. But predictably, combining different social structures and power relationships can lead to conflict.
   “..Because Guatemala is just coming out of a brutal, 36-year civil war, many people remain cautious about engaging in any type of relationship with the government. Trust is essential…[and] the Guatemalan organizations have made several important changes. For example, in some of the first resettlements, an adequate water supply was provided after the resettlement. Now, knowing that the initial adjustment period is crucial, the agencies look for a natural water source when choosing land for the resettlement… [U]nder the right conditions, people will indeed voluntarily move themselves out of a situation that we..refer to as ‘people versus parks’.” http://www.conservationmagazine.org/2008/07/relocating-people-out-of-private-reserves/

Imposters and Hell-hounds

Filed under: colloidal silver,Psychological War — jenniferlake @ 6:02 am
Tags: , ,

A rash of posters, one who is using my name with this email(Jenniferlake@yahoo.com), are spamming this blog with verbatim text from the “Educate Yourself” website in response to an article I wrote and posted here called “Colloidal Silver”. They seem a little pissed, like the editor of the website, Ken Adachi whose words they are pasting. Anyone using the above email is doing so to defame me, my opinions, the quality of the research, or just for personal attack. This is not my email.

and it’s happening because I dared to question the safety of ingesting colloidal silver and publishing the results…

Addendum: I won’t be approving comments here on the subject of ingesting colloidal metals. Period. There are plenty of discussions elsewhere on the web, pro and con,  however I will continue to address the matter as it pertains to biophysics experimentation, nanotechnology and environmental pollution. The majority source of documentation that I’ve been able to find in support of “safe limits” for silver are govt/industry studies prepared for occupational exposures seeking human tolerance levels. This, of course, carries enormous legal obligations and repercussions to industries that expose workers to hazardous materials on the job. Personally I don’t take any such studies as “health advice”. These studies were made not for ‘health’ but for ‘liability’.

Colloid metals are among the ‘special substances’ of interest to the medical Manhattan Project scientists who created the field of Health Physics to study “human damage by population surveys”. It was the objective of these scientists to determine safe limits for toxic exposures, which is a euphemism for symptomless or sub-clinical illness that would serve govt/industrial purposes for a given length of time. In a document I referred to in an earlier article from the www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/ which no longer seems to have a working link , though here it is,(http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/radiation/dir/mstreet/commeet/meet3/brief3.gfr/tab_f/br3f1h.txt) –meeting to organize a Health Physics and Safety program, Jan. 29, 1947– an objective of the study program is spelled out: …”actual determination of the toxicity of a substance must be made, measuring how poisonous it is, both in acute and chronic exposures. The amounts administered are decreased until asymptomatic levels are found…”  This defines the purpose of human toxicology reports as I see it. Current studies addressing the intake of silver solutions are admittedly lacking adequate data.

Colloidal Silver

“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.
>>>a more recent post has information on electromagnetic fields and the mention of a nano-biology technique for using metallic particles for transgene uptake https://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/emf-killing-fields/
    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:
http://nccam.nih.gov/health/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.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micromineral. ‘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).
Bottom line….
   There is NO nutritional need for silver –zero–, although many, many websites make the claim that there is, such as this one:
http://altered-states.net/barry/colloidalsilver/toxicity.htm
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.”
http://www.portfolio.mvm.ed.ac.uk/studentwebs/session2/group29/introtox.htm
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.”
http://www.portfolio.mvm.ed.ac.uk/studentwebs/session2/group29/intronut.htm
–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.”
*
Guess what, it’s still a heavy metal and it’s still a poison: “Ag+ ions are highly toxic to all micro-organisms, perhaps due to poisoning of the respiratory electron transport chains…” http://mic.sgmjournals.org/content/147/12/3393.full
*
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 [2001]

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?
www.nico2000.net/analytical/silver.htm
In another silver ion applications search, I came across this:
www.asu.edu/aine/nanoionicsapplications.htm, from the University of Arizona, apparently a leader in colloidal metals research:
“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.
ADDENDUM 10/11/09
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 https://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

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/02/02/nanosilver-migrates-from-treated-fabric-during-washing.aspx

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

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.

Mail to:

K. Adachi
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.

Delivery Time
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 https://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.
