Scientists from Lithuania have come up with another new use of ionic silver, and it’s quite astonishing.
They’ve developed a new, completely natural and biodegradable food packaging “plastic” that not only keeps food fresher, longer, but also saves lives by helping stop the spread of food poisoning pathogens.
Here’s the straight scoop on this exciting new innovation you won’t hear anywhere else…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
It’s exciting to find that scientists from Lithuania's Kaunas University of Technology (KUT) have developed a brand new “plastic” food wrap that's not only specifically designed to be biodegradable (because it’s made from natural plant-based cellulose fibers), but that also helps keep food fresher longer than conventional plastic wraps, and prevents food poisoning pathogens from spreading.
I’ll tell you more about that in just a second. But first, here’s some quick and interesting background information that will be helpful for understanding this astonishing new breakthrough:
- We already know that researchers from India have demonstrated that eggs remain fresh longer when stored in egg cartons that are impregnated with silver nanoparticles rather than standard egg cartons. That’s because the silver-impregnated egg cartons help stop the spread of bacteria that make eggs go bad quickly.
- We also know from Brazilian researchers that milk stays fresh up to twice as long when it’s stored in milk cartons that are impregnated with silver nanoparticles rather than standard milk cartons. Again, that’s because the silver-impregnated milk cartons stop bacteria from spoiling the milk so quickly.
- And we know that many people who are into canning and food preservation routinely use colloidal silver nanoparticles to increase the shelf life of their canned goods and help protect against food poisoning pathogens.
- Finally, we know that many people use colloidal silver nanoparticles as a simple, highly effective fruit and vegetable wash, to help staunch the potential spread of food poisoning pathogens and keep families safer.
So it should come as no surprise when we learn that researchers from Lithuania have discovered a way to create biodegradable plastic food wrapping impregnated with ionic silver nanoparticles. Here’s what’s happening, according to an article titled Clove and Silver Make for Better Food Packaging:
“…scientists from Lithuania's Kaunas University of Technology (KUT) have developed a new food wrap that's not only biodegradable, but that also keeps food fresh for longer than conventional plastic.
Made mainly from a plant-derived cellulose composite, the new material also contains clove essential oil along with ionic silver nanoparticles.
The clove provides it with anti-oxidizing qualities by binding free radicals, while the silver adds an antimicrobial effect by killing microorganisms.
Surprisingly, it was found that the addition of the silver also makes the plastic more elastic and thus stronger.”
According to the Lithuanian scientists behind this project, the new food wrapping “plastic” degrades in landfills in around two years because it’s largely composed of plant-based cellulose and natural materials, whereas conventional plastic food wrapping produced with synthetic petroleum by-products can remain in landfills for decades without degrading.
What’s more, according to a press release from Lithuania’s Kaunas University of Technology, the silver-based antimicrobial properties of this new food packaging are designed to help cut down on deaths from food poisoning pathogens. They wrote:
“…more than 350,000 people die from food borne illnesses every year. 52,000 deaths are caused by salmonella, 37,000 by e. coli bacteria, and 40 percent of food poisoning cases are children younger than 5 years old.
Our goal was to create a biodegradable package, which could help to keep food fresh for longer, which could have anti-oxidizing or antimicrobial properties.
…Active components of clove essential oil are very effective in tying free radicals; this oil proved efficient in enriching packaging with anti-oxidizing qualities. This effect helps to keep food fresh for longer, but such a package is not antimicrobial”…
To achieve antimicrobial effect, we added ionic silver particles to the cellulose based packaging. The results we achieved were quite unexpected – the silver particles made the packaging film more elastic and stronger”…
The film which is enriched with silver inhibits the growth of microorganisms and its antimicrobial properties remain active for long periods of time.”
In other words, the new cellulose “plastic” food wrap not only helps keep food fresher, longer, but it’s also natural, non-toxic and far more easily biodegradable because it’s composed of plant fiber instead of petroleum byproducts.
It also turns out to be stronger than conventional plastic food wrapping in terms of wear and tear while under use. Finally, the new “plastic” is more elastic, or flexible, thanks to the silver.
And top it all off, use of this new breakthrough food-wrap can help save lives by keeping food poisoning pathogens in check, thanks largely to the ionic silver nanoparticles the food wrapping is impregnated with!
So, kudos to the Lithuanian researchers behind this product.
All I can add to the conversation is that I hope the radical, anti-silver environmentalists here in the U.S. and around the world don’t get wind of the fact that the product contains ionic silver nanoparticles. As soon as they hear that, they’ll do the bidding of their big corporate masters and work to destroy the commercial use of this beneficial new product, as they did several years back with the silver-impregnated butcher paper from Israel.
The Israeli Butcher Paper Story
When Israeli researches announced several years ago that they had developed a silver-impregnated butcher paper to help store-bought meats stay fresh longer, and by extension, help prevent food poisoning bacteria from spreading on meats in supermarkets, the radical anti-silver environmentalists came unglued and began vehemently trashing the idea.
Without any evidence at all, they claimed that the colloidal silver nanoparticles being used in the butcher paper were “inherently risky” and would “harm the environment” when the butcher paper ended up in landfills.
I later wrote the article “In Defense of Colloidal Silver Nanoparticles: It’s Time to Kick Some Environmentalist Butt,” in which I demolished the environmentalist arguments against the use of silver in food packaging and preservation.
What’s more, I pointed out that many of the same U.S. environmental groups who were screaming to high heaven about the supposed “dangers” of silver in food packaging were simultaneously taking tens of thousands, and in some cases even millions of dollars from charitable foundations set up by Big Pharma.
Many observers hold the opinion that these huge sums of money from Big Pharma’s coffers are nothing more than hush money payoffs to keep environmentalist groups railing against mythical “harm” from silver in the environment (which is hilarious, since silver came from the environment in the first place), while in reality the environment is becoming overloaded with tons of toxic drugs and drug residues that now permeate most drinking water in the U.S., potentially causing long-term harm to young and old alike.
Later, as the environmental hysteria against silver spread around the globe, I wrote the article, The Global Environmental Campaign to Ban Antimicrobial Silver, which revealed the true reason for the worldwide environmental campaign against the use of infection-fighting silver in consumer products.
That article was reprinted in foreign press sources around the world, and was largely instrumental in helping quell much of the hysteria.
Antimicrobial Silver for Non-Scientists
Thankfully, you don’t have to be a university scientist to take advantage of the powerful, all-natural disinfectant, food preservation and antimicrobial qualities of ionic silver nanoparticles.
After all, safe, natural colloidal silver – available in most well-stocked health food stores around the country, or easy to make yourself with a simple, kitchen counter top device called a colloidal silver generator -- is composed of pure ionic silver nanoparticles.
Indeed, tens of millions of people around the world use colloidal silver regularly to help keep their families safe and infection-free thanks to its powerful antimicrobial, food-preserving, household disinfecting and infection-fighting properties.
Here are a just few articles you might want to read through to see how colloidal silver is used by millions of families world-wide in their homes and personal lives:
Time to Consider Making
Your Own Colloidal Silver?
If you like what you’ve seen above, perhaps it’s time to consider purchasing a high-quality home colloidal silver generator so you can make your own safe, natural colloidal silver for less than 36 cents a quart, rather than paying $20 or $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle at health food stores.
By making your own high-quality colloidal silver so inexpensively, you’ll also be able to use colloidal silver for its many disinfectant qualities, such as:
- Spray colloidal silver onto kitchen counter tops to kill germs, mold, mildew and other microbes
- Soak your store-bought fruits and vegetables in it to eradicate potentially harmful bacteria and fungus from the food surfaces
- Clean and decontaminate faucets, door knobs, and other contact surfaces such as your kitchen cutting board or that filthy blade on your kitchen can opener
- Add a couple of ounces to your daily laundry as a natural antiseptic agent that will keep clothes, bath towels, dish rags, and other fabrics fresh and germ-free for weeks on end
- Soak your toothbrush in it to prevent microbial contamination
- Spray it around sinks, bathtubs and other surfaces to stop mold and mildew in its tracks
- Spray it topically onto cuts and burns for prevention of infection and to stimulate rapid wound healing
- Add it to your pet’s water bowl to resolve internal infections and help prevent illness.
- Gargle with it to eradicate sore throats
- Put it into a spray atomizer and sniff it up your nose to eliminate sinus infections
- Add a drop or two into your eyes to stop Pink Eye or styes in a single afternoon
- Spray your store-bought meats and other fresh foods with colloidal silver before refrigerating, to kill any nasty pathogens such as MRSA on the food surfaces
And, of course, you can safely use colloidal silver internally to stop colds and flu in their tracks…alleviate intestinal infections…stop urinary tract infections…cure upper respiratory infections…wipe out infection-based prostate problems…and much, much more!
Learn more about using colloidal silver internally as an all-natural infection-fighter from hundreds of people who have done so, here.
Best of all, your new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge will practically pay for itself with the very first one-quart batch of colloidal silver you make.
You see, health food stores generally charge about $30 for one of those tiny, four-ounce bottles of colloidal silver they sell. That means a quart’s worth of colloidal silver would cost you a whopping $240.
But you can pick up a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator for just $249.95 (during our current sale, in which you save a whopping $100 off the usual cost) and make your first one-quart batch for about 36 cents.
After your second one-quart batch, you’ll be making colloidal silver practically FREE, i.e., just a few pennies per every one-quart batch. And you can do so for the rest of your life!
Truly, the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is one of the few products you’ll ever buy that actually pays for itself almost immediately.
