Colloidal Silver v/s the Flu Vaccine

Colloidal Silver v/s the Flu Vaccine

The CDC has now announced that 2007-2008 was the worst flu season in three years (see news article below), chiefly because the flu vaccine didn’t work very well.

That’s odd. My wife and I didn’t get the flu this year, nor did we get it during the last flu season, either. And we never take the flu vaccine.

We got the sniffles a few times this winter. But each time we started feeling a bit under the weather, we powered down some home-made micro-particle colloidal silver along with some extra nutritional supplements such as D-Ribose and Dimethylglycine, and knocked the bug out before it could even get started.

Plenty of people around us got the flu, however, including a number of our family members. (Can you guess which ones got sick? Yes, it was the ones who constantly tell us we’re “crazy” for taking colloidal silver and other nutritional supplements. And they’d all been vaccinated!)

No Lies

Now I’m not going to lie to you. There have been a few times over the past 14 years when certain flu strains came around that even colloidal silver couldn’t stop. After all, colloidal silver isn’t perfect. But it generally beats the pants off of the chemical alternatives offered by the orthodox medical establishment.

For example, I can remember when the Hong Kong flu strain reared its ugly head about seven years ago, and I got sick as a dog, in spite of taking prodigious quantities of colloidal silver and other nutritional supplements at the time. Of course, I was pretty worn down from a rigorous 16-hour a day work schedule at the time. And I probably wasn’t eating as healthy as I should have been, either.

But the very next year the Sydney flu strain came around with a vengeance. This was a particularly virulent strain, which killed a number of elderly folks throughout the central and eastern U.S., as well as a number of youngsters in the southern states.

And even though my wife and I were repeatedly exposed to that potentially deadly flu virus when a number of our family and friends came down with it, we sailed right through that winter flu season completely unscathed.

What’s more, I was right in the middle of interviewing literally hundreds of experienced colloidal silver users for an early version of my book on colloidal silver usage (now called the The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual), and every one of them seemed to have the same story: They bypassed the flu, often entirely, while their family members and friends who had refused to try colloidal silver suffered in misery.

Colloidal Silver Made the Difference

Once again, the only difference between my wife and I, and those of our family and friends who suffered for several weeks at a time from that nasty flu, was the fact that they refused to take colloidal silver and we were taking our regular one ounce a day of homemade micro-particle colloidal silver, and increasing the dosage to three or four ounces a day if we felt the sniffles coming on. Plus, we increased our intake of other nutritional supplements such as the D-Ribose and Dimethylglycine mentioned above.

The bottom line is that I’ll take my colloidal silver and other nutritional supplements over the flu shot any day. I like the safety of using a completely natural infection-fighting agent such as colloidal silver rather than being jabbed with a chemical cocktail composed of “killed” viruses and chemical agents such as thimerserol (mercury), Triton X-100 (a detergent) and formaldehyde, among others.

The Darn Flu Vaccine Doesn’t Work, Anyway

Dr. Sherry Tenpenny, DO, a well-known vaccine critic, recently pointed out the utter futility of depending upon flu shots for protection. She wrote:

…The Cochrane Collaboration produced a series of articles in 2005 reviewing the published literature to determine the effectiveness of the flu shot. Nothing substantiating its usefulness was found. In a review of 51 studies involving more than 260,000 children…researchers concluded that there was “No evidence that injecting children 6-23 months of age with flu vaccines is any more effective than placebo.”

For healthy adults, the results were similar. A total of 25 studies were reviewed that included more than 60,000 study participants. Again, The Cochrane Group found that vaccination reduced risk of influenza by a meager 6% and reduced the number of days missed from work by less than one (0.16) day. Researchers concluded, “Universal immunization of healthy adults was not supported by the results of this review.”

For the elderly population, the prime target group for flu shots, The Cochrane Group reviewed 64 studies and chided that, “The runaway 100% effectiveness that's touted by proponents [of the flu shot] was nowhere to be seen…What you see is that marketing rules the response to influenza, and scientific evidence comes fourth or fifth.”

A new study, soon to be released in the prestigious medical journal, Vaccine, resulted in the same conclusion. The study was undertaken to determine whether the incidence of influenza had decreased in Ontario, Canada following the introduction of the Universal Influenza Immunization Campaign (UIIC) in 2000. All laboratory-confirmed influenza cases—diagnosed between January 1990 and August 2005—were analyzed. It was determined that, “…despite intensified vaccination distribution and the increased financial resources used to promote vaccination,” the incidence of influenza had not been decreased by the national flu shot campaign.

Well, that’s not saying much for the flu vaccine, is it?

Alzheimer’s from Flu Vaccines?

Worse yet, according to Dr. Tenpenny, more than one prominent researcher has linked flu vaccines to Alzheimer’s disease. Hugh Fudenberg, MD, an immunogeneticist and biologist with nearly 850 papers published in peer review journals, has reported that “if an individual had five consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied), his/her chances of getting Alzheimer's Disease is ten times higher than if they had zero, one, or two shots."

Whoa! That sounds pretty serious to me.

What’s more, it turns out that Dr. Boyd Haley, Professor and Chair of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, who has done extensive research in the area of mercury toxicity and the brain, has established a likely connection between toxic mercury (such as that found in flu vaccines) and Alzheimer’s disease. In a paper published in collaboration with researchers at University of Calgary, Haley stated that “seven of the characteristic markers that we look for to distinguish Alzheimer's disease can be produced in normal brain tissues, or cultures of neurons, by the addition of extremely low levels of mercury.”

Well, that’s enough for me. I’ve never taken the flu vaccine, and I never will.

Stubborn, Yes. Stupid, No.

Now I have to admit, I’m stubborn about it. I’d rather get sick for a week to 10 days with the flu, than risk Alzheimer’s disease eight or ten years down the road from a vaccine that doesn't appear to work anyway, based upon the available data. Now I don't expect everyone else to feel thhe same way about it. It's the difference of opinion that makes horse races, as they say. And everyone has to take care of themselves the best way they know how.

And to be perfectly honest with you, I used to come down with the flu just about every year. But ever since my wife and I started taking colloidal silver some 14 years ago, we have had very few full-blown incidences of the flu. We’ve pretty much avoided it completely over the last three or four years (i.e., ever since the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator was developed). And even before then we noticed that our bouts with the flu were far less frequent than in the past, and were of shorter duration and lower intensity than ever before.

In my most recent round of interviews with regular users of colloidal silver while updating The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual from 252-pages to over 540-pages, I continued to hear the same thing from just about everyone I interviewed.

As 90-year old Bea Riley told me, “Steve, I haven’t even had a cold since 1998 when I purchased my first colloidal silver generator and began using colloidal silver. Every time I feel one coming on, I just start taking a few ounces a day, and it never seems to get past the sniffles stage.”

Bea’s story is pretty much typical. Regular colloidal silver users report less frequent colds and flu. And when they do get sick, the duration is generally shorter than usual, and the intensity less than what they’ve experienced in the past.

Some people say it’s stupid not to take the flu vaccine. But based on my own personal experience, and what I’ve heard from over 2,000 experienced colloidal silver users over the past 14 years, I’d say it’s stupid not to use colloidal silver instead.


CDC says 2007-2008 worst flu season in 3 years; vaccine didn't work well

Apr 17, 12:17 PM (ET)


ATLANTA (AP) - This year's flu season has shaped up to be the worst in three years, partly because the vaccine didn't work well against the viruses that made most people sick, health officials said Thursday.

The 2007-2008 season started slowly, peaked in mid-February and seems to be declining, although cases are still being reported, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Based on adult deaths from flu and pneumonia, this season is the worst since 2003-2004 - another time when the vaccine did not include the exact flu strain responsible for most illnesses.

Each year, health officials - making essentially an educated guess - formulate a vaccine against three viruses they think will be circulating. They guess well most of the time, and the vaccine is often between 70 and 90 percent effective.

But this year, two of the three strains were not good matches and the vaccine was only 44 percent effective, according to a study done in Marshfield, Wis.

The CDC compares flu season by looking at adult deaths from the flu or pneumonia in 122 cities. This year, those deaths peaked at 9 percent of all reported deaths in early March, and remained above an epidemic threshold for 13 consecutive weeks. In 2003-2004, they peaked at more than 10 percent of all deaths, and surpassed the epidemic threshold for nine weeks.

"Our season is not quite as high but is lasting a little longer," said Dr. Dan Jernigan, deputy director of the CDC's influenza division.

Pediatric deaths are another way flu seasons are compared. So far this year, 66 children died, including 46 who were not vaccinated. In 2003-2004, 153 children died.

This year, the CDC started working with the Marshfield Clinic in central Wisconsin to get a better gauge of vaccine effectiveness while a flu season was in progress. Almost the entire population gets health care at the clinic, which has complete vaccination and electronic medical records.

This year, a Type A H3N2 Brisbane strain not in the vaccine has been responsible for most of the illnesses. A Type B Florida strain, also absent from the vaccine, has also been causing illness. Marshfield data showed that the vaccine didn't work at all against the Type B virus, and was 58 percent effective against the Brisbane virus.

Jernigan acknowledged that some people may lose faith in the flu vaccine and skip it next year. But he noted even this year, when the vaccine was not a good match, the vaccine still offered 44 percent protection overall.

The Marshfield study and a flu season update are being published this week in a CDC publication, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Colloidal Silver Kills Listeria

Colloidal Silver Kills Listeria

As pointed out in the news article below, the FDA has approved the spraying of a viral cocktail onto many of the foods we eat.

The FDA’s justification for this act of insanity is that many foods, such as lunch meats, poultry and more, can contain a bacteria called Listeria monocytogenes which can cause serious episodes of food poisoning for people with weakened immune systems (think AIDS patients), and to a lesser degree children with undeveloped immune systems and pregnant women.

Apparently, the viruses they will now be allowing food manufacturers to spray on the foods we eat have the ability to infect these rare food-poisoning bacteria, reproduce prolifically inside of them, and cause them to burst open, thereby releasing even more viruses onto the food which in turn go on the hunt for more of the targeted bacteria.

While this kills off the infectious Listeria pathogen on the food, it leaves people like you and me in the incredible position of having to eat viruses just to protect ourselves from this food poisoning bacteria.

There are so many serious problems with this idea, I won’t take the time to mention them here. Byron Richards, who wrote the comprehensive article below, has done an excellent job of listing the health-robbing flaws in the FDA’s latest bout with sheer idiocy.

What I will mention is these two facts:

Fact #1: Listeria Is Very Rare

First of all, only about 2,500 people per year get serious Listeria infections.

In other words, all of the rest of us now have to eat virus-coated foods in order to “protect” those 2,500 people (most of who are AIDS patients). This is an outrage, and the FDA needs to hear what you have to say about it.

Fact #2: Colloidal Silver Kills Listeria

Secondly, and most importantly, colloidal silver has long been known to kill Listeria monocytogens.

In fact, recent tests by independent clinical labs at the behest of a company called NVID International, Inc. (developer of a municipal drinking water purification system that uses ionic silver to rid drinking water of pathogens) showed that silver ions can kill Listeria within minutes.

You can read more on this in my recent post titled “Ionic Silver Purifies Municipal Drinking Water” here at the Colloidal Silver Secrets blog.

Why Would the FDA Do Such A Stupid Thing?

So why would the FDA allow food manufacturers to spray the foods we eat with viruses in order to help control the Listeria bacteria, when instead they could simply have them spray the foods with small amounts of safe, simple colloidal silver?

You know the answer: The FDA has engaged in a long war against the use of colloidal silver ever since their “Final Ruling” in 1999 when they made the ludicrous assertion that colloidal silver is not a “safe and effective” infection-fighting agent.

And no matter how many studies to the contrary disprove the FDA's fallacious argument, made at the behest of the big drug companies, the FDA simply will not back down. They would rather have us eat virus-laden foods in order to help prevent Listeria infections, than admit their mistake and okay the use of safe, simple colloidal silver instead.

You Don't Have to Be a Victim

But you don’t have to be a victim of this bureaucratic insanity. By owning the means of colloidal silver production, you can protect yourself from food-borne infection and disease quickly, easily and effectively. You can spray colloidal silver directly on the food you eat. Or simply take a small amount with meals. For example, I like to add anywhere from a teaspoonful to a tablespoonful to my milk, juice or water whenever I eat.

So be sure to take the time to learn more about the use of high-quality colloidal silver generators to produce your own colloidal silver for only pennies per quart, rather than paying greedy colloidal silver vendors up to $29 for a tiny four-ounce bottle.

And be sure to learn all of the fascinating ways you can use colloidal silver to protect yourself, by getting an inexpensive copy of the brand new, studio-quality, 60-minuite Colloidal Silver Secrets video (under $20 for a limited time only), in which I personally demonstrate and discuss dozens of highly effective ways to protect yourself and your family against infection and disease with colloidal silver.

With the government now allowing the spraying of viruses directly onto our foods, many more health problems are likely to be caused than resolved. But safe, natural colloidal silver has long been known as one of the world's best remedies for preventing food poisoning and fighting infectious microorganisms.

Learn more about colloidal silver, and act. When your own government starts spraying the food you eat with viruses, it is in your best interest to take matters into your own hands, and do whatever it takes to protect yourself and your family.


Here is Byron Richards great article on the insidious viral cocktail now approved by the FDA to be sprayed on your food…

FDA OKs Viral Cocktail To Be Sprayed On Food

By Byron J. Richards, CCN


On Friday, August 18, 2006, the FDA approved a viral cocktail to be sprayed on foods we eat. This is the first time viruses have been approved for use as food additives. The FDA wants you to believe it will be safe to consume these viruses every day for the rest of your life with no adverse health effects. Not surprisingly, the FDA doesn't want you to know which foods are adulterated in this manner, for fear you may not buy them; thus, no labeling will be required. This is a monumental announcement by the FDA, indicating they are throwing all caution to the wind regarding the safety of our food supply.

Are you willing to stand in line for a virus-laden sandwich? How do you like the idea of buying virus-infested food for your family? The first virally contaminated foods entering our food supply with the blessings of the FDA will be luncheon meat and poultry. Live viruses will be sprayed on foods such as cold cuts, sausages, hot dogs, sliced turkey, and chicken.

At issue is the very real problem of a poor quality FDA-approved food supply that is already full of diseased and sickly animals, many of them imported from other countries. The use of antibiotics during growth and radiation during food processing is required by the fast-food animal farms owned by multi-national companies to cover up the horrendous health of the animals they wish to feed to Americans. Animals in poor health are a friendly place for bacteria to grow and prosper, especially after such meat goes to market. Rather than address the source of the problem, the FDA wants to add another adulteration into our food supply.

The stated goal of the new FDA-approved viruses is to kill a rare bacterium known as Listeria monocytogenes. This bacterium is killed by cooking; however, it poses a problem in meats that are cooked during processing and not cooked again prior to consumption, so it can readilyinfect foods such as deli meats.

Yes, the FDA plans to use one infectious organism to fight another. The carnage of battle will end up in your digestive tract along with the victorious live viruses, which the FDA assures us will not attack human cells. However, they cannot possibly be certain the viruses will not attack the friendly bacteria that make up the lining of your digestive tract. And they want you to believe this is completely safe while refusing to require the additive viruses to be listed on the food labelso that you would have a choice.

Turning Loose the Bacteria-Killing Viruses

The company that produces these biotech viruses is Baltimore-based Intralytix, Inc. The viruses are known as bacteriophages, viruses that kill bacteria, or phages for short. Phages have been around a long time, living as parasites inside many bacteria.

Intralytix uses biotechnology to grow viral phages in a culture with Listeria, in theory teaching the viruses to recognize the bacteria. The FDA-approved cocktail contains six different viruses intended to attack one strain of bacteria.

This concoction is then sprayed on food. If Listeria is present in the food, the bacteria will ingest the viruses. This results in massive viral replication inside the bacteria, until such point as the bacteria simply bursts. This battle results in significant production of bacterial poisons called "endotoxins", as the bacteria tries to defend itself. When the bacteria burst, these endotoxins are released. These, along with the victorious live viruses, will now be on the food that will be eaten.

The FDA and Intralytix would like us to believe that these viruses will only attack the specified bacteria they are intended to kill and will be harmless to humans. I'm sorry to burst their bubble, but they can't possibly guarantee such safety. It is true that the viruses, at least at this time, cannot recognize human cells. However, the virus can potentially recognize normal bacterial cells in the human digestive tract and may be able to adapt to infect one or more of these friendly bacteria.

The FDA Certainly Knows There Are Risks

The FDA had some concerns about the amount of bacterial endotoxin in the Intralytix product before it is sprayed; however, FDA tests apparently showed that the product was adequately purified and so they declared it safe if used as approved. Will the FDA diligently monitor the quality of this product once it is on the market, or will it go the path of many FDA-approved drugs that the agency can't keep track of?

There is certainly a risk that humans will be exposed to excessive amounts of endotoxin. This could come from the manufacturing of the viral cocktail, the interaction of the viruses with bacteria after being sprayed on food, and/or the interaction of the viruses with bacteria in the digestive tract.

The human immune system is highly reactive and sensitive to bacterial endotoxins. They provoke allergy, asthma, autoimmune problems, and elevate cholesterol. They also interfere with the healthy function of cells lining the digestive tract. Researchers have demonstrated that the presence of bacterial endotoxins can start cancer in the colon.

Additionally, the human immune system reacts directly to viral phages. Thus, a person who eats a lot of processed deli meat is certain to evoke an immune reaction to the viruses. What will this reaction be? Allergy? Asthma? Autoimmunity? Cancer? How can the FDA approve a food additive that it knows can induce a variety of human immune responses? Phages are so good at disrupting normal immunity that they are being considered for use as part of organ transplant medicine.

The ingestion of significant amounts of viral phages into the human digestive tract is a wild card full of unknown outcomes. For example, it is certainly possible that these phages, which constantly mutate in order to survive, are likely to find a way to infect bacteria they were not intended to infect. Since phages are parasites, they could hijack the friendly bacteria of the digestive tract and turn them into viral machines, constantly generating viral particles that are likely to confuse the human immune system, if not directly infect the body. We know from history that these viral phages can turn innocuous bacteria into a killer, which is how cholera occurs.

Furthermore, the Listeria bacteria are not going to take the issue lying down. They will develop resistance to the viruses over time, as we have seen with the overuse of antibiotics. Going down this path we are likely to have hundreds of viral food additives in the food we eat, all designed to combat some possible infection coming from poor quality food. Sooner or later we will inadvertently create deadly new super-strains of bacteria and/or parasitically infect the human digestive tract with an untreatable infection.

There is also the very real possibility of unintended viral recombination. What happens when a person with viral stomach flu eats food containing a dose of this viral food additive? It is certainly possible for the genetic material of the flu virus to interact with the genetic material of the viral phages, provoking an undesirable new viral infection.

Let's not forget that the FDA won't tell us which foods in the food supply contain genetically modified organisms (GMO). Seventy percent of the packaged food on grocery shelves already contains GMO adulterated food. These foods have viral promoter genes woven into the DNA of every cell, a technique used to implant a pesticide toxin into every cell of this fake food (see Fight for Your Health, chapter 15). What happens when the viral phages interact with the viral promoter genes in GMO food? What new virus will be encouraged to form?

Keep in mind that the FDA wants to conduct this experiment on our food supply to protect a small minority, only about 2500 people, who are made seriously ill by this infection each year. The ill are mostly pregnant women, elderly with compromised immunity, and small children. It would be a lot more to the point if the FDA would simply warn such people that eating these foods, due to their poor quality of production, may be dangerous. What the FDA should really do is improve the quality of our food supply, the true source of the problem. Why expose millions of Americans to an unproven ingestion of live viruses for the benefit of so few?

The FDA has failed miserably for the past century to protect the public from the adulteration of our food supply by vested interests. This is just one more insult added to a long list of injuries.

Isn't it WAKE UP TIME...time for all of us to stand up and say NO to a government and government agencies hired to work against our best health and welfare interests???

Ionic Silver Purifies Municipal Drinking Water

Ionic Silver Purifies Municipal Drinking Water

The FDA does not want you to know about the phenomenal infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver (i.e., silver ions, also known as ionic silver). Yet brand new studies being conducted by a wide variety of Big Business enterprises interested in using silver as an anti-microbial agent are showing that safe, simple ionic silver is able to kill many of the most deadly pathogens known to man.

Silver Kills 100% of Fecal Coliform in Drinking Water
In the study described in the news article that follows, a company called NVID International Inc. has developed a new technology designed to inject very small amounts of ionic silver into the drinking water supply. The study results demonstrate that with only 78 parts per billion of silver ions injected into the city water supply, ALL fecal coliform bacteria were wiped out.

It is important to note here that 78 parts per billion is an extremely small amount of silver. Colloidal silver generators, such as the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from make ionic silver in the parts per million range, which means the colloidal silver solutions produced by such a machine are approximately 1,000 times stronger than that used in the study described below. (1 part per billion is one microgram per liter of water, whereas 1 part per million is one milligram per liter of water. A microgram = 1/1000 of a milligram. In other words, you get 1,000 times more silver per liter with a microgram than with a milligram).

This means that a generator like the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator allows you to produce an ionic silver solution with approximately 1,000 times the microbial killing power than those used in the study below. But don't let that overshadow the point: it takes only a very small amount of colloidal silver (i.e., ionic silver) to kill numerous forms of pathogenic microorganisms.

Silver Demonstrated to Kill 9 More Infection-Causing Pathogens

Additionally, tests by NVID International Inc. confirmed that ionic silver killed nine different kinds of extremely serious pathogenic microorganisms, including microbes know to be resistant to the prescription antibiotic Vancomycin which is considered to be the "antibiotic of last defense" against drug-resistant bacteria.

In other words, ionic silver was able to kill the microbes even Vancomycin couldn't kill. And it was able to do so in within one minute at very low levels! Here is a list of the pathogens from the article below that NVID International, Inc. has demonstrated ionic silver to be effective against:

Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 15442
Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538
Salmonella cholerasuis ATCC 10708
E.Coli ATCC 0157:H7
Listeria monocytogenes ATCC 11543
Enterococcus faecium ATCC 11543
Rhinovirus (common colds)
Rotavirus (infectious diarrhea)
Vancomycin-resistant-enterococci (VRE) Antibiotic-resistant bacteria

Would You Rather Have Colloidal Silver or Viruses Sprayed on Your Lunch Meat?
t is interesting to see Listeria monocytogenes on this list of pathogens that were shown to be destroyed by even small amounts of colloidal silver. Only recently the FDA has deemed Listeria to be such a threat to human health that it approved the spraying of foods such as lunch meats and poultry with a cocktail of viruses – yes, viruses -- that allegedly prevent Listeria from spreading.

The FDA claims these viruses are “harmless” to human health, and that eating viruses with your lunch meat or poultry is a good trade-off for the ability to avoid a nasty Listeria infection.

But since colloidal silver has been demonstrated to kill Listeria in independent clinical studies (see the news article below), you’d think the FDA would go that route instead, wouldn’t you?

After all, other recent studies have demonstrated conclusively that colloidal silver when sprayed on meat destroys greater than 90% of the disease-causing microbes on the meat. Here is a quote from one recent study conducted by the Animal Science Food Safety Consortium at Kansas State University:

Treating beef flank with 32 ppm colloidal silver (Ag) solution had a bactericidal affect on Salmonella spp. and Escherichia coli O157:H7, resulting in a greater than 90% reduction after 240 min. Samples inoculated at 104 log CFU/ml with Salmonella spp. or Escherichia coli O157:H7 and treated with 32 ppm colloidal silver demonstrated a 1.23 and 1.58 log10 CFU/cm2 reduction, respectively after 240 min when compared to untreated samples (P 0.05) Atomic Absorption Analysis of treated beef samples yielded residual Ag well below the Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA) allowance for 3 oz of red meat. Although not yet approved for use on foods, a colloidal silver rinse implemented in conjunction with other intervention technologies during the carcass conversion and/or fabrication process could be an effective intervention technology against Salmonella spp. and Escherichia coli O157:H7.

So why would the FDA approve the spraying of a viral cocktail on the meat we eat, rather than the spraying of colloidal silver on the meat?

Unfortunately, the FDA refuses to remove its blinders when it comes to the use of colloidal silver. Ever since their ridiculous “Final Ruling” in June 1999 when they were laughed to scorn for pronouncing colloidal silver “not safe and effective” for infection-fighting uses, they have waged a long war against the use of this powerful natural substance regardless of how many clinical studies to the contrary reveal its incredible effectiveness against infectious microorganisms.

Here is the news article about the study proving that ionic silver can rid municipal drinking water of pathogenic microorganisms in a matter of days, and kill the Listeria food-poisoning bacteria in just minutes....

NVID Int. Announces Axenohl Municipal Water Tests Results; Ionic Silver Technology Found Safe and Effective

CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 8, 2001-- NVID International Inc. (Pink Sheets:NVID) announced Monday the final results of a research project focused on the effectiveness of Axenohl in a municipal drinking water system in Costa Rica, featuring NVID's ionic silver-based microbial technology.

The 4-month study was conducted in the municipal water system of Grecia, a community of 60,000 people just west of San Jose, Costa Rica. EPA protocols were followed in the study and all testing was performed as described in the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Waste Water, 19th Edition, 1995. The objective of the study was to determine the effectiveness of Axenohl as a disinfecting agent in municipal water system applications.

Prior to testing, the Grecia water supply was contaminated with coliform bacteria and was not potable. After treatment with 78 parts-per-billion (PPB) of Axenohl concentrate, the fecal coliforms went from greater than 200 CFU/100ml to zero in a period of 10 days. No other disinfectants or chemicals (including chlorine) were used in conjunction with Axenohl during the testing period. All water samples taken downstream had less than 50 PPB Axenohl, which falls within the current EPA and European water treatment guidelines for the presence of silver. Additionally, Axenohl proved to control and reduce the presence and growth of biofilm in the piping distribution network. The community of Grecia intends to continue the usage of Axenohl in its water supply network.

The data from this study will be submitted to JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) and WHO (World Health Organization) for peer review, and ultimately White Paper publication. The project demonstrates the effectiveness and potential of Axenohl as a replacement for traditional water treatment agents.

Under a license agreement from NVID, Innovative Medical Services (Nasdaq:PURE) and Sistecam S.A. teamed together under the direction of Andrew Arata, inventor of record for Axenohl, to implement the costly and time consuming Grecia drinking water project in Costa Rica.

"The Grecia test results are one more example that prove NVID's aqueous antimicrobial ionic silver technology can realistically be viewed as a breakthrough disinfectant," stated David J. Larson, president NVID International. "Axenohl can effectively compete with traditional water treatment disinfectants without creating any known disinfection by-products, such as trihalomethanes (THM), which have been proven to be carcinogenic."

Axenohl is NVID's non-toxic antibacterial technology that uses the biocidal properties of stabilized ionic silver to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. Axenohl does not include the use of traditional disinfectants such as quaternary ammonium salts, phenols, glutaraldehyde, chlorine or bromine compounds.

The Axenohl formulations have been designed to compete, and/or replace these products while eliminating the associated environmental hazards.

Additionally, the technology may prove to be revolutionary in the healthcare market for treatment of disease, including human and animal infections and wounds. The disinfection efficacy of Axenohl has been will documented by independent testing laboratories. Axenohl eliminates the following test organism strains all within one minute and 99.9999% efficacy.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 15442
Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538
Salmonella cholerasuis ATCC 10708
E.Coli ATCC 0157:H7
Listeria monocytogenes ATCC 11543
Enterococcus faecium ATCC 11543
Rhinovirus (common colds)
Rotavirus (infectious diarrhea)
Vancomycin-resistant-enterococci (VRE) Antibiotic-resistant bacteria

Target markets include: hospital and nursing home water systems, point-of-use/point-of-entry; municipal, commercial and residential drinking water, FDA compliant consumer products, pools and spas, cisterns/wells, veterinary, horticulture, agriculture and food processing applications.
