Colloidal Silver and Anthrax

How an Ancient Natural RemedyCan Defend Against Biological Terrorism
On August 17, 1999 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued its final rule establishing that all over-the-counter (OTC) drug products containing colloidal silver ingredients or silver salts for internal or external use are not generally recognized as safe and effective and are misbranded...
...we now have enough current and reputable findings to cast doubt on the overly broad nature of the FDA warning. Some extremely fascinating research on colloidal silver has been published recently which should serve to broaden the debate about its uses in health and medicine, especially in light of the possibility of threats of biological terrorism and emergence of ever more strains of antibiotic-resistant pathogens in the United States and abroad...
...Use of colloidal silver by ordinary citizens (who are unlikely to receive anthrax-specific antibiotics) is clearly justified in the case of biological terrorism with anthrax spores, and it is probably a good idea to have a quality preparation in the medicine cabinet. The basis for our assertion stems from news reports on domestic terrorism; the work of two investigative journalists in a recently published book focused on what they term the secret war against the Jews; and reports from scientific publications...
...According to Loftus and Aarons, building on Nazi human experimentation, by the 1950's the Soviets had developed huge stockpiles of anthrax, plague, and designer bacteria as both a defensive shield and for offensive weapons. Based on documents collected under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, Loftus and Aarons report on the development of a potent protector against biological poisons called Movidyn within the Czechoslovakian satellite. "Movidyn," they write, "is a form of colloidal silver, odorless, tasteless, and cheaper to produce than chlorine disinfectants." Only one part per billion of powdered Movidyn in water had a germicidal effect. "In a study of infected wells, it completely destroyed typhus, malaria, cholera, and amoebic dysentery. Drinking containers washed in Movidyn retained their germ-fighting abilities for several weeks." Not only was Movidyn a cost-effective prophylactic for most of the waterborne diseases that infect the Third World. "To the astonishment of the Soviet military, Movidyn also disinfected every germ warfare bacteria in the Soviet arsenal, even their newest designed poisons. In other words, Movidyn was too good." Because of its threat to Soviet supremacy in the area of germ warfare, the authors report, the entire Czech factory was disassembled and removed to the Soviet Union. "To this day, the Movidyn formula seems to have been suppressed from the world...." This is not the only report to mention that colloidal silver is effective against anthrax. Dr. H. Bechold reports in Colloids in Biology and Medicine that colloidal silver is effective against anthrax...
... It seems smart to have both penicillin (which is effective against anthrax) and a quality colloidal silver preparation in the home medicine cabinet (especially in light of silver's many medical uses). In the case of terrorist attacks with anthrax, penicillin, colloidal silver or both used together could save your life. According to The Silver Bullet Health Report, a newsletter, the most effective method of delivery of colloidal silver preparations in the case of biological terrorist attacks, especially airborne anthrax spores, would be to inhale a fine mist through the nostrils..
