Colloidal Silver v/s the EPA Greenies: Understanding the Lies Behind the “Silver is Dangerous to the Environment” Con

A number of readers have written to ask what’s going on with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in relation to their proposed regulation of nanosilver products, including colloidal silver.

Unfortunately, the answer is that the EPA is still pursuing ways to regulate all products containing tiny particles of silver.

You can read more about this in my latest article at this link:

EPA Panel Still Looking at Ways to Regulate NanoSilver Products (Including Colloidal Silver)

But Why Are Environmentalists So Dead-Set Against Safe, Natural Colloidal Silver?

That’s the million dollar question. And the answer may well be that they are being paid to push for the regulation of silver-based products, including colloidal silver.

Here’s an article that will help explain why I so strongly question the underlying motives of the radical environmentalists in their ongoing quest to force the EPA to regulate silver-based products as “environmental toxins”:

Big Drug Companies Fund Groups Behind Plot to Regulate Nano-Silver

As you may be aware if you’ve been following my blog posts for any length of time, a group of radical environmentalists have been pushing the EPA to re-categorize products containing tiny silver particles – including colloidal silver – as “environmental toxins” or “toxic environmental pesticides” and then regulate them so heavily that no products containing silver will be able to be sold without expensive environmental impact reports.

This of course would sound the death-knell for most colloidal silver manufacturers -- and many other businesses that use tiny silver particles in their products -- as environmental impact reports can run into the millions of dollars.

The contention that silver is somehow "toxic to the environment" is ridiculous at face value, of course. After all, silver comes from the environment in the first place, and is about as “toxic” to the environment as, well, dirt.

For example, as I’ve pointed out many times, the world’s oceans are literally saturated with trace silver.

In fact, the seas contain an estimated two million tons of trace silver. Yet they’re absolutely teeming with wildlife ranging from uncountable trillions upon trillions of the tiniest microorganisms, to uncountable billions of tide pool creatures such as starfish, minnows, sand dabs and crabs, to innumerable varieties of fish, to uncountable numbers of huge mammals like whales, porpoises and dolphins.

And there’s no harm whatsoever to this incredible array of wildlife from those millions of tons of trace silver, even though it’s been an integral part of the ocean’s vast mineral makeup basically since the beginning of time.

Proof Positive Silver is Safe in the Environment

Contrary to the shrill cries of the environmentalists, the world’s oceans are proof positive that silver doesn’t "upset the ecological balance"... won't kill off “environmentally sensitive microorganisms” and set off a "domino effect" that will harm other wildlife…

…and in short it can't unleash the “inevitable environmental catastrophe” the radical sky-is-falling environmentalists are always warning of in their ongoing campaigns to have products containing tiny silver particles heavily regulated and even banned.

Fair Question, Honest Answer

Here’s the question everyone’s asking:

If silver is so toxic to infectious microorganisms that it can cure numerous serious infections and diseases in humans, how can it be harmless to tiny microorganisms in the environment?

Fair question. And the answer is easy: In the environment, silver particles bond rapidly with other minerals, salts, sulfur compounds, and more. And in so doing, they become essentially inert.

That’s how million of tons of trace silver, for example, can saturate the world’s oceans without causing any harm. It’s how tons of trace silver can saturate the lakes and streams in silver-mining states like Colorado, and those lakes and streams are still brimming over with wildlife from microbes to tadpoles and minnows and crawfish and trout and bass to just about every other form of aquatic life you can think of.

In other words, silver’s toxicity to microorganisms in the environment is neutralized by the process of agglomeration. As I stated earlier, it is the bonding of the tiny particles of silver with other materials makes it about as toxic as…dirt.

In nature, tiny silver particles become bound silver rather than free or raw silver, and essentially lose any toxic properties.

Agenda-Driven Junk Science

But the environmentalists completely ignore this well-known fact.

Instead of sending their researchers into the environment and testing lakes and streams for silver content, and then testing the health and longevity of the wildlife in those lakes and streams (which would prove their theories against silver to be dead wrong)…

…they purposely conduct experiments in controlled laboratory test-tube environments in which they can manipulate the factors of the experiment in order to bring about the results they want.

Yes, rather than test in real-life conditions, they instead saturate tiny minnows in an enclosed test-tube environment with unbelievably high levels of raw nanosilver particles, and then issue written reports on how “toxic” they found the silver to be to the tiny creatures!

These reports then get written up and published in science journals as “studies.” And voila’ – the environmentalists manufacture a “proof” that silver is toxic to wildlife in the environment!

As I’ve pointed out over and over again, this is pure, agenda-driven junk science at its very worst, because conditions like this in which test-tube environments are saturated with raw, unbonded silver simply don't exist in nature!

But the radical environmentalists don’t care. They're dead set on achieving their agenda of having the EPA so heavily regulate silver as a dangerous “toxin” that all silver-based products -- including colloidal silver -- will ultimately have to be pulled from the market in order to "save the environment."

Environmentalist Campaign Against Silver

For well over a year now I've been watching the propaganda barrage being conducted against colloidal silver and other silver-based products by the radical environmentalists, and as many readers know, I’ve written a long series of articles and blog posts on this topic during this time.

Here's one of my latest articles on the subject, which you might want to read in order to get caught up:

Environmentalists: Silver is Toxic to Fathead Minnows

Here’s my response to a recent official White Paper released by the environmentalist group Friends of the Earth, who called for all colloidal silver products to be banned or regulated as drugs:

“Ban All Colloidal Silver Products, or Regulate Them as Drugs,” says environmental group Friends of the Earth

Here’s an article explaining the ludicrous nature of the environmentalist claims against colloidal silver and other products containing nanosilver:

Why do the environmentalists have such dread fear of silver nano-particles

And here’s an article explaining why colloidal silver generators – the little machines used to make colloidal silver – will also soon be under the regulatory thumb of the environmental bureaucrats, and why you might want to get one now while they’re still legally available.

Meet Steve Barwick

“I'm often asked which colloidal silver generator I recommend. Hands down, I recommend the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from my friend Steve Barwick at Silver Edge…I've touted the benefits of pure micro-particle colloidal silver for years to anyone that would listen. Frankly, it's the best way I know to quickly heal cuts, scrapes, sores and burns... treat a host of common illnesses such as colds, flus and sore throats... as well as kill nasty germs on cutting boards, kitchen counters, tooth brushes and even your pet's water bowl. But most importantly is how it can protect you from the deadly pathogen MRSA that has become resistant to almost all known prescription antibiotics. Having a colloidal silver generator as part of your first aid kit just makes sense... especially if you ever find yourself in an emergency with no access to a doctor or hospital.”

-- Michael Cutler, M.D., Editor, Easy Health Options

"I believe the folks at The Silver Edge are the reigning experts on colloidal silver. Nowhere else will you find more accurate information on how to use colloidal silver to protect yourself and your family..."

-- Bob Livingston, The Bob Livingston Letter

"Thanks for all your brilliant work to educate people about colloidal silver. It is one of nature’s wonders that helps keep us well."

-- Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, M.D., MBChB, PhD, author Cancer Research Secrets, Complete Parasites Handbook, and Survive Without Antibiotics

"Hi Steve: I have been a supporter of your work for nearly 15 years, and I have used Colloidal Silver for over 30 years without a single problem, EVER! I have cleared up feline herpes in a cat's eyes, and have prevented infection from countless cuts, post surgery, for other injuries sustained during daily life. It is the safest and best antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-viral that I have ever used, as opposed to the pricey, worthless, side effects loaded junk that the pharmaceutical companies promote. Read the labels for the antibiotics and other "medications" prescribed by physicians, in good, albeit ignorant, faith, and you will find horror abounding in devastating diseases that they can cause you, including death. So, if anyone has any doubt about using natural Colloidal Silver in place of chemicals, think again. This works, with zero side effects."

-- Dr. Kathleen Olsson Nelson, RN, BA, MA, PhD, PhD, FSNPM, FCH., Clinical Psychologist and Nutritional Consultant

“The bottom line is that for colloidal silver to effectively fight pathogens, you must use micro-particle silver rather than conventional colloidal silver or silver protein products… You can actually make your own micro-particle colloidal silver in your own home. In fact, there’s one colloidal silver generator on the market today -- the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from a company called The Silver Edge -- that will make colloidal silver with such uncommonly small silver particles, it requires a multi-million dollar Transmission Electron Microscope operating at 175,000x magnification just to see them. This generator allows you to make the most powerful, and highly bioavailable form of colloidal silver right in your own home. And you can make it for pennies…Having a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator on hand allows you to protect your entire family – and probably your friends and neighbors as well – for just pennies.”

-- Donald S. McAlvany, The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor, October 2013

“I'm so happy I own a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver generator. No one should be without this wonderful device. I so very much appreciate you sharing your knowledge about colloidal silver.”

-- Gary C. King, best-selling author of Blood Lust: Portrait of a Serial Killer and other true crime books and stories
