More Uses For Colloidal Silver

February 3, 2011

There have been lots of recent examples of new research into colloidal silver and new uses for colloidal silver, including anti-bacterial glass in hospitals. Now researchers from Bar-Ilan University have developed paper coated in colloidal silver.

Colloidal silver is a natural anti-microbrial, that means it’s a natural antibiotic, natural antiviral, and natural antifungal. Coated on paper, it can be used in food packaging to reduce food spoilage by preventing growth of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, two bacteria commonly responsible for food-borne illnesses. In fact, the coating developed by the researchers killed both strains of bacteria in 3 hours, and they emphasized that the smaller the particle of colloidal silver the more effective it was as an anti-microbial.

The developers think the process can easily be done on a large scale since it’s a cost-effective technique for coating paper with colloidal silver. Colloidal silver could provide an alternative to older techniques for food preservation, including the use of toxic preservatives, radiation, and heat which destroys nutrients. Even foods that traditionally require refrigeration may be more easily available in poorer parts of the world once coating paper with colloidal silver becomes widely used.

How would you feel if food from the grocery store came coated in colloidal silver? Do you have concerns about current methods of food preservation, and do you choose alternatives (such as buying raw milk, or making your own food to avoid preservatives)?

@Twigs Thanks! And I agree. It always creeps me out when I can tell food has been tampered with, like when fruit doesn’t ripen properly…

@Renee That’s great! I’m glad to hear it’s working for you.

@Lee Make sure she drinks plenty of water and cranberry juice as well. There’s no reason not to swab with colloidal silver, but it may be easier to spray (call and ask for a sprayer with your next order).

My 72 year old wife is having recurrent bladder infections and having to use antibiotics to get a temporary cure from a burning urethra. What about swabbing the area with colloidal silver to stop or prevent further infections?

I have been reading the book that Kevin Truedeau wrote about natural cures. Oh my have I turned over a new leaf. Organics as much as possible, goats milk, eggs from the neighbor who feeds her chickens from her own garden, and I am baking my own bread…(thats not going so well but I am not going to give up) I read every label on everything I pick up and have even thrown food items away that were in my home because of the chemicals in them. This is war but it is not an easy fight. Last night I threw out my favorite breaded shrimp after reading the box.. I was really hungry but resorted to organic cereal with goats milk. It took away my hunger pains and I am happy that I am being this strong so far. I am 51 and I know if I keep consuming what I have been it will not be long before my liver will not function properly and I will have created my own illness.

I have been using Colloidal Silver for years and would love to see the food industry use this in the grocery stores instead of radiation, toxic preservatives. Check it out, it is a great product.
