Quote:Note: Colloidal Silver will NOT work against ebola or any other virus in the body. This is due to ebola virus, and all others NOT having any need for oxygen, and having a hard, protein shell. Collodial Silver MOA is to bind to oxgen receptors in all cells it encounters. As viri have no oxygen receptors, CS at any size is worthless as an anti-viral. CS ONLY works on bacteria. The continued meme of CS against Ebola in the alternative media is deliberate disinformation. Who wants you to believe in an ineffective ebola cure? Hmmm....
Guys....Collodial Silver will ONLY kill virus inside a laboratory test. It will NOT do so in the blood. Bear in mind that silver is not allowed to be 'free floating' in your bloodstream. It is bound to cells all along the way through the gut and never makes it across the intestinal wall in any quantity.
PLUS, the method of action of silver AT ANY SIZЕ including 'nano' is to bind to oxygen receptors on the bacteria, and others on fungi. BUT a virus has NO such receptors, and silver is useless against it in the body.
It will not hurt you, but to rely on it against a virus?.....risky behavior.
British Research Demonstrates Tiny Silver Particles Kill Stomach Viruses!
In one of the oddest stories of the last few years, it turns out that British researchers are also looking into the antiviral qualities of very small particles of silver. According to the British newspaper, The Telegraph, British scientists working in tandem with international drug-makers Janssen and Johnson & Johnson have discovered a way to incorporate tiny silver nanoparticles into intestinal bacteria, creating a new silver-based drug that can wipe out food poisoning viruses such as the dreaded rotavirus, and perhaps even flu and cold viruses as well.
The popular British newspaper states: “Scientists have discovered that they can attach tiny studs of silver onto the surface of otherwise harmless bacteria, giving them the ability to destroy viruses.
They have tested the silver-impregnated bacteria against norovirus, which causes winter vomiting outbreaks, and found that they leave the virus unable to cause infections. The researchers now believe the same technique could help to combat other viruses, including influenza and those responsible for causing the common cold.”
The news article goes on to state that in addition to fighting food-poisoning viruses such as the norovirus (now responsible for record numbers of potentially life-threatening food-poisoning cases worldwide) this strange new silver-based product could also be “incorporated into a nasal spray, water filters and hand washes to prevent viruses from being spread.”
Then you would destroy the virus in the stomach and upper digestive system, as well as opportunistic bacteria.
