A skeptical visitor to the Colloidal Silver Secrets Group on Facebook recently asked, regarding colloidal silver, “So, what’s the evidence that this stuff actually works?”
Here’s my reply:
The evidence is overwhelming.
For starters, read the medical study overviews on these two web sites:
Then read these articles about the effectiveness of colloidal silver in a serious lung infection as well as against fungal pathogens:
What the Experts Say
Then check out what doctors, medical researchers and other experts have to say:
Are all of these people just crazy? Or does colloidal silver and other silver based antimicrobials really work?
Why Would Municipal Water Suppliers and Even NASA Use Silver?
Then check out these articles on the use of electrically generated silver to kill pathogens in municipal water supply systems, as well as in the water supplies of the NASA and Russian manned space vehicles:
Why Is Big Business Now Using Silver?
You can read the article titled “Big Business Moves Into Silver-Based Antimicrobials in a BIG Way,” and ask yourself, if silver doesn’t work as an infection-fighting agent, why are all of these businesses investing millions of dollars in it?
Patents for the Use of Silver Against Infections
You can also do an internet search on patents having to do with silver and its usage. If you’re a careful researcher, you’ll find dozens of them, ranging from patents for:
…preventing the spread of HIV during sex using silver-based compounds
…using silver-impregnated catheters to prevent infections at catheter sites
…using silver-laced stockings to help severe diabetic patients prevent their leg ulcers from becoming infected
…using silver in house paint to help keep microbial populations inside the home down
…using silver in textiles such as countertops to help stop the spread of pathogens in hospitals, laboratories, office buildings, etc.
…and much, much more!

No Real Benefit?
I could go on and on. But I won’t. The proof is in the pudding.
I know there are critics out there who say silver has no real benefit.
But they’re either ignorant of all of the studies and the plethora of information now available, or they’re shills for the pharmaceutical industry whose job it is to cast aspersions on effective natural remedies.
Read the literature. Decide for yourself. If you actually read the literature without prejudice, you can only conclude that the evidence for silver as nature’s most powerful antimicrobial is overwhelmingly in its favor.
