Hi, Steve Barwick, here for The Silver Edge…
Is colloidal silver effective against the Zika virus?
No one knows for sure, because there have been no clinical studies to test silver against this particular virus.
Nevertheless, colloidal silver is very effective against a multitude of viruses.
See, for example, the Colloidal Silver Kills Viruses website for a long list of viruses colloidal silver has been clinically demonstrated to be effective against.
Or, see any one of the following articles and clinical studies for a more in-depth overview of the viruses silver is known to be effective against:
It's important to note, however, that for maximum effectiveness against many viruses, you have to already be taking colloidal silver before the infection kicks in.
This is why, for example, many people start using colloidal silver daily as soon as winter cold and flu season rolls around, because having a little bit of silver circulating in your body makes it harder for cold and flu viruses to take hold, colonize and cause infection.
Zika Virus: Overblown Fears
Many medical authorities believe the fears about the Zika virus are vastly overblown.
The much-touted connection between Zika virus infection and microcephaly (i.e., congenital malformations of the head in newborn babies) has not been proven. It's only been theorized. As Dr. Mark Sircus has stated:
"I live only two hours from the epicenter of the Zika outbreak in Brazil where an epidemic of microcephaly is taking place. The situation is not what is being wildly reported. It has little or nothing to do with a mild virus called Zika any more than it has to do with the virus thought responsible for the common cold."
Dr. Margaret Chan, director general of the World Health Organization (WHO) said, "A causal link between Zika infection in pregnancy and microcephaly has not, and I must emphasize, has not been established."
Dr. Wallace Ransom says, "Only about one in five victims of the Zika virus actually suffers any ill effects at all."
So Zika virus is generally a very mild virus, at best.
Dr. Sircus says, "The Zika virus is spread to people through aedes aegypti mosquito bites. Once contracted the illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. The most common symptoms of Zika virus are disease are a fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis." (See Dr. Sircus' article here.)
Some doctors in Brazil have pointed out that the rash of cases of microcephaly in newborn infants they've experienced actually started after Brazilian authorities began adding a chemical called Pyriproxyfen to the public drinking water in order to help control the mosquito population in that area of the world.
In other words, some experts believe the chemical being used to help kill mosquito larvae in drinking water in Brazil is actually what's causing the medical problems in the newborn infants, and not the Zika virus at all. (See article here.)
I find it fascinating that Brazilian authorities are treating the drinking water with this potentially toxic chemical which prevents mosquito larvae from hatching, yet are now experiencing a supposed epidemic of microcephaly caused by viral infections that can only be transmitted by (drum roll, please) mosquito bites.
Something's definitely wrong with that picture. Apparently, the government's mosquito abatement program is a complete failure (like most things governments do).
And that's why many experts in Brazil claim their government is trying to protect the big chemical corporations from lawsuits by blaming a virus-carrying mosquito for the medical problems caused by the toxic chemical being used to control mosquitos in the first place.
Jon Rappaport, former L.A. Weekly reporter, and author of the book, AIDS Inc.: Scandal of the Century, call Zika Virus, "The virus that does nothing."
He points out that Zika virus is no more harmful than the common cold virus, causing mild fever and muscle aches at most.
He also points out that Zika virus was first discovered in 1947 and that in all of that time it's never been known to be particularly harmful or to be even remotely associated with microcephaly.
Rappaport further states, "They've invented a epidemic that doesn't exist, blaming it on a virus that has never caused serious illness, and they've connected that virus, with no evidence, to microcephaly."
Should I Jump on the Fear Bandwagon?
Now, I suppose I could hide all of this information, and jump on the Zika fear bandwagon and sell lots of colloidal silver generators to frightened people. But I don't operate that way.
After all, there's plenty of valid reasons to tell people they should own a colloidal silver generator without lying to them.
So there's plenty of good reason to own a high-quality colloidal silver generator like the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, without pushing the Zika virus scare story.
Do you really need a colloidal silver generator to protect yourself against Zika virus? The current evidence indicates the answer is no – no more than you'll need the coming Zika virus vaccine or antiviral drugs.
So if you want a colloidal silver generator, get one for the right reason.
Don't allow yourself to be herded by scare stories being promoted by Big Pharma corporate bigwigs who know they need to work the general public up into a fearful lather so they can sell billions of dollars worth of their next vaccine or anti-viral drug.
