The global medical authorities are whipping up the public again with scary new stories of a coming “antibiotic apocalypse” due to the continuing spread of drug-resistant superbugs.
But while they’re working to scare the bejabbers out of the general public, they offer no concrete solutions whatsoever to the growing crisis. They just keep repeating the mantra that one day antibiotic drugs will simply no longer work against the superbugs.
Yet the solution to drug-resistant superbugs has been known for decades, and that solution is antimicrobial silver, also known as colloidal silver.
Even some of the most recent clinical studies continue to bear out that fact that safe, natural colloidal silver not only kills common pathogens like Staph and E. coli, but also kills numerous drug-resistant superbugs that the medical authorities claim to be so concerned about.
Here’s the story no one else is reporting…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
Well, the scare-mongering over antibiotic-resistant superbugs is back in the news again.
First, in early March 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a warning about three specific superbugs that “pose the greatest threat to human health.”
In their warning, they listed the following three pathogens:
- Carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii
- Carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)
According to LiveScience.com, “All of the top three pathogens on the list are resistant to a group of antibiotics called carbapenems. These antibiotics are sometimes referred to as "last resort" medications, because if they don't work, very few options are left.”
The WHO went on to say that up to 51% of people infected with these drug-resistant pathogens end up dying of their infections.
The WHO then listed six more drug-resistant pathogens in what they termed their “high priority” category, which are:
- Enterococcus faecium, vancomycin-resistant
- Staphylococcus aureus, methicillin-resistant, vancomycin-intermediate and resistant
- Helicobacter plyori, clarithromycin-resistant
- Campylobacter spp., fluoroquinolone-resistant
- Salmonellae, fluoroquinolone-resistant
- Neisseria gonorrhoeae, cephalosporin-resistant, fluoroquinolone-resistant
And finally, the WHO then listed three medium-priority drug-resistant pathogens, which are:
- Streptococcus pneumoniae, penicillin-non-susceptible
- Haemophilus influenzae, ampicillin-resistant
- Shigella spp., fluoroquinolone-resistant
A few days after the WHO released their warning, Harvard University Medical School released a video purporting to show antibiotic-resistant bacteria in a petri dish mutating to become immune to up to 1,000 times the normal dosage of antibiotic drugs.
The news article accompanying the video went on to call the scenario painted in the video as an “antibiotic apocalypse” and a “doomsday phenomenon that could kill 10 million people a year.” And it pointed out that more people are now dying each year from drug-resistant superbug infections than from breast cancer.
And the only mention in the WHO warning and the article accompanying the Harvard Medical School video of any kind of a solution is that eventually the public is going to have to accept the fact that antibiotic drugs with severe side effects will eventually have to be employed in the battle against the superbugs.
No Mention of Colloidal Silver
What’s not mentioned, of course, is the fact that safe, natural antimicrobial silver has already been demonstrated in numerous clinical studies to kill many of these same drug-resistant “superbugs” mentioned above by WHO and Harvard Medical University.
In fact, here are three recent clinical studies demonstrating silver’s effectiveness against a wide variety of drug-resistant pathogens; read them carefully because it will blow your mind to see how effective colloidal silver really is against the drug-resistant superbugs:
Clinical Study #1: Colloidal Silver Kills up to 99.7% of Six Multidrug-resistant Superbugs! In this fascinating clinical study published in the World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology in 2010, it was found that antimicrobial silver killed up to 99.7% of drug-resistant bacteria, including some of the most virulent multidrug-resistant strains. The study authors stated: “In our study, antimicrobial silver nanoparticles exerted a bactericidal effect against six drug-resistant bacterial strains… the same nanosilver concentration inhibited 99.7% of erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus pyogenes, 95.7% of ampicillin-resistant E. coli and 92.8% of multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa.” The researchers further concluded that silver exhibited bactericidal effect rather than merely bacteriostatic effect. That’s important news, because it means the use of antimicrobial silver is so effective against drug-resistant strains, it outright kills them rather than merely inhibiting their growth!
Clinical Study #2: Colloidal Silver Kills Antibiotic-Resistant Staph, E. Coli, Pseudomonas and Salmonella! In this clinical study, titled “Colloidal Silver as a New Antimicrobial Agent,” published in the respected International Journal of Microbiological Research in 2010, the researchers demonstrated that colloidal silver effectively decimated antibiotic-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella typhi. The researchers concluded, “Resistant clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella typhi were used as the test organisms. This study demonstrated powerful antimicrobial activity of colloidal silver against all multidrug-resistant clinical pathogens tested.”
Clinical Study #3: Colloidal Silver Kills 49 Different Strains of Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs! In this clinical study titled “The Antimicrobial Efficacy of Silver on Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Isolated From Burn Wounds,” conducted by researchers at the Department of Pathology at West Virginia University, and published in the International Wound Journal in October 2012, a total of 49 different antibiotic-resistant bacteria were isolated from burn wounds and tested against silver. These deadly, drug-resistant pathogens included Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, multidrug-resistant Vibrio sp, drug-resistant Klebsiella pneumonia, drug-resistant Escherichia coli, multidrug-resistant Acinetobacterbaumannii and 42 others. After exposing these drug-resistant pathogens to antimicrobial silver the researchers concluded, “…all forty-nine antibiotic-resistant bacteria showed susceptibility to the antimicrobial activity of silver…”
As you can see, there’s hardly a superbug in existence that hasn’t been demonstrated by clinical research to be sensitive to antimicrobial silver. And that includes the deadly MRSA pathogen that kills some 94,000 people per year in the U.S. alone!
What’s more, here’s an article about a clinical study demonstrating that when small amounts of silver are added to existing antibiotic drugs that are no longer effective against drug-resistant microbes, the silver boosts the effectiveness of those drugs by up to 1,000 times and restores their effectiveness against the resistant microbes:
And here’s another article about a study demonstrating that when silver is added to antibiotic drugs that no longer work against the drug-resistant pathogens, the drugs suddenly and miraculously start working again; what’s more, when added to the antibiotic drug ampicillin, the silver restored the drug’s effectiveness against drug-resistant E. coli:
So why all of the scary WHO bulletins and Harvard Medical School videos portraying an imminent global apocalypse caused by drug-resistant pathogens?
The medical authorities have yet to figure out a way to patent colloidal silver and monopolize its sales. After all, silver is a completely natural substance. And the medical Gestapo are aware that if they openly admit silver is the answer to the drug-resistant “superbugs,” people will simply go to their local health food stores and buy some, or get a colloidal silver generator and start making their own colloidal silver, rather than paying through the nose for expensive antibiotic drugs.
Nevertheless, silver really is the solution to the drug-resistant pathogen crisis. As Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D. board certified immunologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School has stated:
"Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs. Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science - natural silver. I sincerely recommend that everyone have electrically generated colloidal silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent."
As Harvard-educated Dr. Jonathan Wright, M.D. has stated:
“Colloidal silver just might be the next germ-fighting wonder drug. And not just for the serious threats making headlines: It's also effective against bacterial infections like strep throat, viruses like the flu, and fungal infections like Candida.
No matter how much a germ mutates, it can't change enough to escape the damaging effects of colloidal silver. And in the process, the silver doesn't harm human tissue or kill off the good bacteria in the intestine the way antibiotics and other medications do."
As Dr. Ron Leavitt, Ph.D., of the Department of Microbiology at Brigham Young University has stated:
"The data suggests that with the low toxicity associated with colloidal silver, in general, and the broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity of this colloidal silver preparation, this preparation may be effectively used as an alternative to antibiotics."
And as author Zane Baranowski, CN, has stated:
"Silver is one of the most universal antibiotic substances. When administered in the colloidal form, it is for all practical purposes non-toxic. Silver has been proven to be effective against hundreds of infectious conditions.
It has tremendous anti-microbial power; the history of safe and successful colloidal silver use is extensive, and the number of current health professionals and individuals that successfully utilize colloidal silver to reduce the length and severity of infectious disorders is growing exponentially."
Do YOU Have Access to Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver is sold in just about every health food store in America. Unfortunately, because it works so well against pathogenic microbes and infectious disease, it can be extremely pricey, costing as much as $20 to $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle that might last only a few days.
But the good news is this: You can make your own high-quality colloidal silver that’s even better than the health food store brands, for about 36 cents a quart. Yes, I said 36 cents a quart. And your head will spin when you discover how simple it is to make.
In fact, the easiest and very best way to guarantee yourself life-long access to high-quality colloidal silver is to learn how to make it yourself, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home for just pennies per quart. Learn more at the two following links:
