More on Silver in Medicine

Ag SymbolA 1976 report titled “Electrically Generated Silver Ions: Quantitative Effects on Bacterial and Mammalian Cells” is of historical significance. Robert O. Becker, pioneer medical researcher and author of The Body Electric, was one of the scientists who issued the report—summed up as follows:

In conclusion, Ag+ generated at the anode seems to be a very effective bactericidal agent at low concentrations without any detrimental effects upon normal mammalian cells.

The research did not involve ionic colloidal silver. The silver ions were generated electrically from silver rods.



“Effects of Electrically Generated Silver Ions on Human Cells and Wound Healing”

Dr Robert BeckerWhat is silver’s secret? Silver encourages the formation of stem cells! Stem cells are highly beneficial to the healing process. They have the ability to form whatever type of cell is needed—skin, muscle, nerve or bone cells.  Robert O. Becker authored this research paper revealing enhanced healing of several types of wounds with silver ions in 2000.

Silver the Hero for Superbug

“Silver asBandaid an Anti-Bacterial” lets us know that silver is effective even against dreaded staph infection. “A life-threatening Staph germ called MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), often referred to as a ‘superbug,’ is resistant to almost all chemical antibiotics, so many hospitals are employing silver-imbedded equipment including surgical tools, catheters, needles, stethoscopes, furniture, door handles and even paper files.
