If you make colloidal silver READ THIS!

This is just part of the article. Answers many questions that have been bouncing around here, and more we didn't even think of. The best information I have seen anywhere on making CS. http://csprosystems.com/AnotherCSarticle.htm When you do this yourself, it is very important to control the purity of the water, because the purity of the water is one of the factors that controls how small the particles of silver will be. Only high quality DISTILLED water should be used. You cannot use purified or filtered water because it still has too many dissolved minerals in it. You cannot use deionized water because it doesn't conduct electricity well enough to start the reaction. Distilled water is just perfect to start the reaction slowly and let it proceed properly. Another variable that influences particle size is the water temperature. The warmer the water, the faster the reaction will take place, and the smaller the particles will be. Please Pass The Salt! Regardless of what anyone has said to the contrary, silver chloride will ALWAYS form if any amount of salt is present. Never add anything to the water that will make the water conduct electricity better. Never add salt, sea salt, or Celtic sea salt to the distilled water because the salt puts chloride ions in the water that react with the silver to form silver chloride. Another serious problem arises when making colloidal silver with salt in the water. The presence of salt increases the electrical conductivity of the water and this dramatically speeds up the reaction. As the reaction speeds up under these circumstances, it produces larger particles. The product produced is invariably cloudy-white in appearance. Actual electron microscope photographs of this material show silver particles in the range of .05 to .15 microns. These particles are TOO LARGE to form a colloidal suspension, and the proof is that the material will settle to the bottom of the container in a very short period of time. Therefore, this home brewed "colloidal silver" product may be dangerous to consume internally for TWO reasons: the presence of silver chloride and the production of large particles.

Shivani, Thank you! Just the info I was looking for. I'd like to make my own CS; one contact tells me that $50 is too much to pay for a commercially built generator.

Hi Shivani,

Yup, that's part of the GREAT colloidal silver article I referenced in the messages a few threads below this one.

-- Dean -- from (almost) Duh Moines (dtmiller@midiowa.net), October 24, 1999.

What is colloidal silver for. I keep hearing this but don't know what I'm supposed to have it for.

-- Curly~Q (Curly@Q.COM), October 24, 1999.

Curley Ql, Read the article! Basically, it kills nasty micro-organisms. Bacteria, fungus, molds, even viruses. You have to get it to the place those things are inhabiting, is the sometimes tricky part.

Could someone mention why silver coins are not good to simply suck on if a primitive sliver dose is all that is available? I hear that silverware is the reason that older folks did not have as many illnesses.

From the article referenced above by Dean and Shivani:

"Safety and Toxicity!

"Silver can act as a heavy metal poison in the body. It can also act as a trace mineral nutrient. The difference is in the particle size, NOT the concentration. Colloidal silver with a particle size of .001 microns has particles 100 times smaller than a preparation of silver with a particle size of .1 microns. The smaller the particle, the less likely it will behave as a toxin."

My partner is about to make a CS generator, I'll let you know how it turns out.

It is a procedure which permits you to slowly kill yourself. As such, it is legal in Oregon. Try it if you like.

Best wishes,,,,

One more thing:

As someone who has worked in the area, I can tell you that bacteria can develop resistance to silver toxicity in one or two generation times. How long is that? Depends on the genus. As short as 1 hour. Therefore, if this works, the explanation must extend beyond microbial toxicity. If reliable information is available on this subject, I have been unable to find it.

Shivani Arjuna: I have to leave town, but it is difficult to let such junk science alone. Fungus and molds. What is the difference in your mind? Of course any scientific literate would roll on the floor laughing. There are many fungi/molds that are not only killed by heavy metals but accumulate them. There is one species that accumulates copper at a level [up to] 50% of its dry weight. Maybe we could discuss your lack of knowledge of the subject further. But then I work in the area and have to leave town again to work on the subject.

Best wishes,

A large number of fungi are very tolerant of heavy metal toxicity.Should have read not affected by heavy metals

Shivani Arjuna: One last-one last thing: Where did you get this information on protection from viral infection [this is not a flame, I am interested in your source]. Start a new thread which lists the source of your information. I am seriously interested.
