Nano Silver kills microbes - EPA up in Arms

More than a year ago, a little noticed article reported a study that found silver nano particles as found in silver colloids were able to kill HIV, in addition to a broad spectrum of viral bugs. Now, the US health authorities seem to have found a way to prevent this breakthrough from making it into broad public use. According to an article on NewsTarget.com, the Environmental Protection Agency is now selectively targeting nano silver - while practically ignoring pharmaceuticals and toxic chemical pesticides - as an environmental pollutant.

The Journal of Nanotechnology has published a groundbreaking study that found silver nanoparticles kills HIV-1 and is likely to kill virtually any other virus. The study, which was conducted by the University of Texas and Mexico University, is the first medical study to ever explore the benefits of silver nanoparticles, according to Physorg.

During the study, researchers used three different methods of limiting the size of the silver nanoparticles by using capping agents. The capping agents were foamy carbon, poly (PVP), and bovine serum albumin (BSA). The particles ranged in size from 1 to 10 nanometers depending on the method of capping. After incubating the HIV-1 virus at 37 C, the silver particles killed 100% of the virus within 3 hours for all three methods. The scientists believe that the silver particles bonded through glycoprotein knobs on the virus with spacing of about 22 nanometers in length.

While further research is needed, researchers are optimistic that nanological silver may be the silver bullet to kill viruses. The researchers in the study said that they had already begin experiments using silver nanoparticles to kill what is known as the super bug (Methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus). Already used as a topical antibiotic in the medical industry, silver may now come under consideration as an alternative to drugs when it comes to fighting previously untreatable viruses such as the Tamiflu resistant avian flu.

According to NewsTarget, the EPA is using emerging regulations on the health effects of nano particles to selectively target colloidal silver products as "pesticides".

A friend who forwarded the article, commented that in the case of a bio weapons attack, silver would probably the most effective antidote. He says it is a real weapon of mass destruction, as far as pathogens are concerned, adding that at last count it will kill over 600 infectious agents on contact while being harmless to the human organism. The question he posits is: "Could this property of silver have something to do with the recent moves to keep this out of the hands of the public?

Here is the recent NewsTarget article:

EPA uses nanotech regulation ploy to target colloidal silver while ignoring all other nanotech particles

Nanomaterials -- products and materials changed or created at the atomic and molecular level -- are quickly gaining popularity for their multitude of uses, and while the Environmental Protection Agency is preparing to regulate popular nanosilver antibacterial products, ostensibly to protect consumers, critics say the move is a thinly veiled attempt to solely regulate nanosilver as a health supplement.
Nanosilver is used to kill harmful bacteria in food storage containers, shoe liners, washing machines and even bandages. Particles of nanosilver and other nanomaterials can be as small as one-millionth the size of a pinhead. However, the EPA, citing pressure from silver industry workers and environmental groups such as Natural Resources Defense Council, is investigating whether silver ions could pose an environmental threat by killing beneficial bacteria in the environment, or even harming humans. The agency also received a letter from Chuck Weir, chairman of a California wastewater treatment plant advisory group known as Tri-TAC, which claimed "silver is highly toxic to aquatic life at low concentrations and also bioaccumulates in some aquatic organisms, such as clams."

Silver was brought under close EPA scrutiny when washing machine manufacturers began making models that were lined with silver ions or sprayed them onto the clothes as an antibacterial agent. Last year, the EPA decided that the machines should not be regulated under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, since they were considered devices rather than pesticides. Recently, however, the agency re-examined its decision and reversed it.

"We took a second look at the release of silver ions, and it was very clear that this is a pesticide and not a device," Jim Jones, director of the EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs, told the Washington Post. "Our original determination proved not to be a correct one."

Under the regulations, any silver product that claims it has antibacterial properties must prove the product is safe to be released into the environment. Mike Adams, a consumer health advocate and proponent of colloidal silver, suggested the regulations might work better were they aimed at antibiotics and pharmaceuticals.

Silver does more than kill bacteria
new research, published in the journal ChemMedChem (subscription required), indicates that silver goes further than this and modifies cytokines – the enzymes involved in cell growth and movement – leading to reduced inflammation and an increased rate of healing.


Antibacterial NanoProducts
A whole range of consumer products are infused with silver or titanium dioxide in order to fight bacteria. Although beneficial for certain uses of silver (medical, burns, etc), there might be negative side effects of these kinds of antibacterials.


Silver Nanoparticles Deadly to Bacteria
In contrast to the usual methods of producing metal nanoparticles, which involve the use of toxic solvents and highly reactive chemical reducing agents, the paint is produced in a simple, cost-effective, and environmentally safe manner, because the nanoparticles are synthesized directly in the paint itself. The team's new method makes use of a natural, oxidative property of paint that occurs during drying.

To test the antibacterial properties of the paint, the team incubated E. coli bacteria overnight on a plain glass slide, a slide coated in normal paint, and a slide coated with the nanoparticle paint. They found that the paint embedded with silver particles killed all the bacteria in comparison to the control slides, a result that confirms that the nanoparticles are toxic to bacteria.


Silver nano-particles can rein in replication of hepatitis B virus
Silver nano-particles with an average diameter of 5 to 50 nanometers can rein in the in vitro replication of hepatitis B viruses (HBV) through direct interaction with its DNA and viral particles, researchers said Monday.

"The finding provides a new direction for developing new anti- HBV drugs, with nano-particles used as drug carrier to enhance the antiviral efficacy while minimizing the undesirable side effects," Lu told a press conference Monday.

The study on silver nano-particles is still in the laboratory stage and any drugs it may lead to are still 3 to 5 years away from clinic use, Lu said.


The Colorful History of Colloidal Silver & Other Silver Compounds
Colloidal silver is the product the FDA and many mainstream medical people love to hate. Listening to them you would think every person taking colloidal silver is going to turn gray with silver accumulation in their skin (argyria). Their worst nightmare is people taking colloidal silver to combat the H1N1 swine flu – the nightmare for them is that it might actually work.

Readers' Comments


Here is a comment by email from a friend in Canada:

About two years ago I met a woman at a consumer health show who had a company making hot tub purifiers with a nano silver generator (as opposed to a chlorine puck). Health Canada came down on them like a ton of bricks for selling an "unapproved pest mangement device".

She told me that she got the idea after watching a tv show about the International Space station and how they used a silver generator to purify the drinking water on it and on the space shuttle. That would seem a pretty strong argument for efficacy and safety to me. I never researched the veracity myself but she seemed completely honest to me.

A nathuropatic doctor here in Quebec City has had his practise (and nearly his life) destroyed by Health Canada for his sale of nano silver and nano fumic and fulvic acid (what plant roots use to assimilate trace minerals).

On a personal note - it is our home treatment of choice for our three kids for nearly every affliction kids get from cuts, to colds, to flu. Not only will our young boys take it (they call it the magic water) - it works fantastic.

Silver is a toxic, hard carcinogen. See my article at http://www.cqs.com/silver.htm

Silver bioaccumulates in organ tissue, especially nerve tissue, in humans, where it causes neural degeneration (it conducts electricity, folks!)

I am sad to hear about people who are feeding it to their kids. When these children grow up, they will likely have neural degeneration, not a nice legacy.

Removal is very, very slow. Sulfur chelating agents might do it.

Hi,

i am surprised at these findings since i also learned that silver particules used in hepatitis and other vaccines cause or trigger multiple sclerosis through accumulation in the msucle tissues...
On one hand silver is a known antibacterial and on the other it is a poison ; i think all we need is to identify the dosage...
Any more info concerning silver sepp?
Thanks for your website, its a good source for theories and infos...

Ian,

I can't find anything that says silver is an ingredient in hepatitis and other vaccines. Do you mean mercury - like the stuff used in "silver" tooth fillings?

There's a lot of information on silver on the net, if you search "ionic silver" or "silver colloid".

There's also Jonathan Campbell who commented earlier, and who says silver should not be used because of its toxicity.

Here is a comment from India received by email:

I read your article o the US EPA trying to downplay the effects of collodial silver.

In India we have what I thought was an old wives' tale -- namely that silver articles are safe from ritual pollution.

That is, plates and spoons used for eating food are not considered polluted and so need not be washed seperately. Also such articles are not considered polluted when used by menstruating women.

Perhaps this was the ancients way of conveying the bactericidal properties of silver.

Silver articles are used in many rituals -- for instance, the first solid food given to an infant is served in a silver bowl

There was a lot more sense in them days.

Is there any data on what silver does to healthy cells. If silver kills virus and and other harmful bacteria does it affect healthy cells?

Posted by: Bill Ramsay on May 24, 2007 09:03 PM

 


Thank you, Bill,

for your question on silver toxicity to human cells. Silver has been extensively used in wound healing, and in burn victims, it is one of the few things that will work well.

This site says

"The antimicrobial activity of silver ion is well defined. Silver ion rapidly kills microbes by blocking the cell respiration pathway. The speed of action is almost instantaneous once the silver reaches the microbe. The efficacy of microbe killing is based not only on the amount of silver ion present, but likely also the presence of other silver radicals generated by a silver releasing product.

Because of mechanism of action, microbial resistance to silver itself has not been reported. In addition, silver has repeatedly been shown to be non-toxic to human cells."

The non toxicity information comes with a caveat. Excess silver (from direct contact or long term consumption of silver salts) can cause what is known as argyria, a sometimes permanent discoloration of skin.

From this blog:

"Although silver, as noted previously, is essentially non-toxic to humans, it can cause a rare permanently disfiguring condition called argyria. Silver is absorbed into the blood and deposited in tissues, such that the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes acquire a grey to blue-black colouring."

I am a resident in Dubai and currently doing my Doctoral research on Applicaction of Nano silver to disinfection of water at POU. I have seen several comments about the nano silver and I wish to add to the claim of Prabha Krishnan, India.

Silver in india is considered a holy metal in line with Gold. The simple reason is that the ancient indian has identified couple of metals on their way of usage to human health.

The Imperial System in India, always advocated for Silver utensils to be used in Royal Palaces, keeping a view of disinfection properties. You can visit any of the Royal Museums today in India and observe the types of utensils made in Pure Silver, right from cooking to serving & eating.

Secondly the ancient Indian Scientists always recommended Bronze (an alloy of copper and zinc), for cooking couple of items, like boiling of rice and not making any other liquid receipies such as tamarind soup or Sambar (which has tamarind, rich of tartaric acid). Remember tartaric acid from tamarind and citric acid from lemon react very fast with the copper and zinc and forming a typical salt which is harmful. However, the receipies made out of silver vessels do not react with metallic silver and hence there is no by product mixed with the prepared food.

Even today, water is taken for performing worships in Temples. The water from silver vessel mixed with a leaf called Tulsi is offered to the public as the prasadham of God.

Silver in any form in cooking seems to have disinfectdion properties. I would like to share my research results on the same once carried out

I do research with silver nanoparticles and their effects on healthy cell lines. In particular, I test whether the nanoparticles have any effects that kill the cell or induce any kind of immune response. Not wanting to jump to conclusions over my results, I have to say that I would be wary in using silver as an everyday remedy.

The evidence for silver nanoparticles use as an anti-microbial is overwhelming, and I feel that it could be a significant breakthrough. I also think, however, that it should not be seen as a cure-all. There definitely could be significant cellular damage from repeated exposure to silver nanoparticles.

In the evidence for its use, think about how it is used. Burn victims are very vulnerable to infection, and in closed quarters like a space station, it would be necessary to retain a sterile environment. These are extreme examples of silver's benefit. In the lab, I keep my lab hood sterile with UV radiation. It has the same effect on human cells as it does on microbes, but larger organisms can deal with and recover from the stress easier than single celled organisms.

It is also worth mentioning that there is a distinct difference between silver metal and silver nanoparticles. Nanoparticles, being 1-100 nanometers in size, no longer obey the laws of classical physics. Instead, they are governed by the laws of quantum physics; therefore their physical properties are much different. Since they are so small, they can travel nearly anywhere.

This is not to say that nanoparticles should not be used. There are benefits for its use. However, in the light of research related to what I am doing, it is no surprise that governments are concerned about its use.

Posted by: Shaun on December 14, 2007 11:10 PM

 


indeed Shaun, I couldn't have said it better myself. silver nanoparticles appear to kill human cells as well as bacterial cells. what we may need to do is find a way to immobilize silver nanoparticles after their disinfection job is done. or even better, time dependent immobilization- so it takes say 30 mins to kill every bacterial cell in the area and about 1 hour or so to immobilize in the environment. that way, there is less danger of any toxic effects they have in the environment but they can still be used as a disinfectant.

In "Ayurveda" the ancent Indian medical system, silver considered as an element that increase longevity of life, keep mind cool, increases intellectuality as brain-tonic and keeps man young. In gujarati community, there is a system to fill glass of silver with water in the night and to drink it in the morning in every houses. Silver is the only metal having great positive impact on health is a reality, but how the silver which is a metal can be utilised for biological uses need big research. Of course, the raw metal is a dangerous for health.

How Does Colloidal Silver Work?

Colloidal Silver is non-toxic to mammals, reptiles, plants and all living things that are not of a one-celled structure. One-celled life uses a different method of Oxygen metabolism, herein lies its weakness. Since Colloidal Silver acts only as a catalyst, meaning, it influences a change in the rate, or occurrence of a reaction of one-celled organisms, but does not enter into any chemical reaction with the body tissues. The mere presence of Colloidal Silver near any virus, fungus or bacterium (one celled disease causing pathogens) will immediately cripple their oxygen-metabolizing enzyme, or chemical lung, which suffocates and dies usually within six minutes. The dead organism is subsequently cleared out of the body by the immune and lymphatic system.


Body tissues having 5 parts per million (5ppm) of Colloidal Silver will be free of virus, fungus and bacterium. Silver particles are long lived in the body because they do no enter into a reaction, but act catalytically. A catalyst is best described as a substance that brings about, or causes a reaction or occurrence without itself participating or being consumed. The Colloidal Silver acts as a catalyst in disabling a particular enzyme, best described as "chemical lung", as it transfers oxygen and nutrients through the cell walls of the disease causing organism. The organism suffocates! The mere proximity of silver will cripple the activity of the particular enzyme common to all viruses, funguses and bacteria - whilst not affecting the enzymes of tissue type cells.

Regarding the blue man, from what I understand, I have to remember where i heard this, was that his mistake was not creating colloidal silver using distilled water, he used tap water or even purified drinking water, which is a really bad idea because the silver particles will bond with anything that is in the water, i.e. minerals or deposits, creating larger particles

I am sold on the product 'new silver solutions' with its new nano technology as it removed my herpes cold sore virus I've been struggling with for 35 years. However what concerns me and an herbalist friend of mine is the ability of the nano silver solution to affect DNA and the genetic makeup of the body. Weighing the pros and cons, an HIV or AIDS sufferer would toss aside the 'risks' and go for the eradication of the virus with nano silver solution, on the other hand, because of its ability to penetrate deeply into the finest cellular activity of the body and other organisms, I would think twice about giving this product to any growing child or future child-bearing adolescent. If DNA affectation is there as is reported by certain scientists, then reproduction down the road may be frought with unpredictable outcomes. DNA is the building block of the human organism.

I definately will reconsider recommending the 'new silver solutions' to any child. And continued use of the product under any circumstances would not be advisable. I mean, once the bottle is finished and the desired nano silver saturation of the physical body is attained, that will suffice in destroying the unwanted virus, fungus or bacteria. Then it would make sense to refrain from ingesting a further unnecessary dose of the nano silver product. On the other hand, I would have no problem recommending the use of 'colloidal silver' for children or adulescents simply because it is not minute enough to penetrate as deeply into the finer physical structures as does the 'nano silver solution'. One must always way the pros and cons....the risks versus the benefits when using the 'nano silver' technology.

Below are some articles which I shall share for those who are concerned as I am.

http://www.ispub.com/journal/the_internet_journal_of_nanotechnology/volume_2_number_2_63/article/effect_of_nano_silver_on_cell_division_and_mitotic_chromosomes_a_prefatory_siren.html

http://toxsci.oxfordjournals.org/content/88/2/412.full scroll down to view conclusions

The next article trumps up the great benefits of nano silver solution, but in one paragraph quickly mentions DNA affectation.
http://mumbai.quikr.com/NANOSILVER-2-fight-650-Infections-1000-s-of-its-Strains-Mumbai-W0QQAdIdZ67235465
"3) Binding with DNA
Studies by C.L. Fox and S.M. Modak with pseudomonas aeruginosa, a tenacious bacteria that is difficult to treat, demonstrated that as much as 12 of silver is taken up by the organism's DNA. While it remains unclear exactly how the silver binds to the DNA without destroying the hydrogen bonds holding the lattice together, it nevertheless prevents the DNA from unwinding, an essential step for cellular replication to occur. Since silver kills only bacteria that is anaerobic or nitrogen breathing, the friendly bacteria in the digestive tract are immune to it due to the fact that they are oxygen breathing, (aerobic)."

There are other studies and inquiries done by Prince Charles' organization (not sure of the name presently), which called for a moratorium on use of any and all nano particles until their properties are more understood.

Sincerely
Bill Woollam

I have discovered that family members or spouse would need to take the colloidal silver solution at the same time as one with a virus....otherwise, it would seem that re-contamination (not sure if that is the word to use) might occur.

Also, as an earlier post by Jordan O'Hara states:
"Body tissues having 5 parts per million (5ppm) of Colloidal Silver will be free of virus, fungus and bacterium." Understanding this, I did find it necessary to ingest a further bottle of silver solutions five months, or so, later, after the initial dose...in order to maintain the silver saturation of 5 ppm within body tissues. I will probably take another bottle in another six months.
