UK Study: Colloidal Silver "as Effective as Cisplatin" in Treating Cancers

Wonderful, powerful article in a major UK newspaper describing the potential benefits of colloidal silver more effective than chemotherapy with certain types of cancers.

Silver bullet for cancer: Metal can kill some tumours better than chemotherapy with fewer side effects


Silver can kill some cancers as effectively as chemotherapy and with potentially fewer side effects, new research claims. Scientists say that old wives tales about the precious metal being a ‘silver bullet’ to beat the Big C could be true. The metal already has a wide range of medicinal uses and is a common antiseptic, antibiotic and means of purifying water in the third world.

Good news: Silver can kill some cancers as effectively as chemotherapy and with potentially fewer side effects, new research has claimed

And British researchers now say that silver compounds are as effective at killing certain cancer cells as a leading chemotherapy drug, but with potentially far fewer side-effects.

They compared it to Cisplatin, currently used to treat a wide variety of cancers, but known to have harsh side effects including nausea, vomiting and even kidney damage.

Silver is used already in everyday products such as deodorant with no known side-effects, and could make for a potentially cheaper alternative to platinum-based Cisplatin. 
Researchers from the University of Leeds conducted lab tests which exposed breast and colon cancer cells to various silver-based chemicals over a six day period.

Results, published in journal Dalton Transactions, showed that these silver-compounds were ‘as effective as Cisplatin’ at killing cancer with potentially fewer side effects.

While the team are still unsure about how exactly silver battles cancer, they think its effectiveness may be caused by the structure surrounding silver atoms, known as its ligand.

Way forward: Researchers from the University of Leeds found that silver could be used to help defeat breast cancer

They think this may help release the silver ion into cells when it enters the body, killing any cancer.

Study author Dr Charlotte Willans plans to spend the next year looking closely at what effect silver has on both cancerous and healthy cells, and whether it could be a safe and effective new anti-cancer drug.

She said: 'It’s certainly an exciting discovery, although I think we have a lot of work to do in the future. It opens the doors in terms of what we can do and investigate.

'Getting these results also gives us the opportunity we need to apply for funding to take the research further. This could lead to a cheaper, less toxic alternative to current treatments for cancer.' Explaining the research in greater detail, Dr Willans added: 'As many are unfortunately aware, chemotherapy can be a very gruelling experience for the patient.

'Finding effective, yet non-toxic drugs is an ongoing problem, but these preliminary results are an important step in solving it.

'Our research has looked at the structure which surrounds a central silver atom. This "shrubbery" is what determines how reactive it is and what it will interact with.

'Our research has used different types of these ligands to see which is the most effective against cancer cells.'

Colloidal Silver Use with Horses

The benefits of using Colloidal Silver products for horse and rider.

I get a lot of questions about using colloidal silver when treating horses. This is a great beginning article to get your started, by

Using a natural alternative when your horse is not well or in transition to barefoot is important for the overall health of your horse. Colloidal Silver is one of the best natural healing products you can use on your horse and is particularly helpful as a supportive therapy during a transition period to barefoot.

In this article, find out more about how Colloidal Silver works and how to use it.

How Does Colloidal Silver Actually Work?

Colloidal Silver is known as an immune enhancer. Silver works by disabling the oxygen-metabolizing enzyme that one-celled bacteria, fungi and viruses use to reproduce themselves. The disease causing pathogen therefore suffocates and dies and is eliminated via the normal channels. Resistant strains have never been known to develop unlike antibiotics which are effective against only about a dozen forms of bacteria and fungi, but never viruses.

Colloidal Silver has been tested and shown to be effective against more than 650 different disease causing pathogens. None of these organisms were found to survive in the presence of minute amounts of silver.

Medical research in the early 1900's indicated that silver is taken up and stored by the kupfer cells in the liver. These same cells are one of the body's defense mechanisms against infection. They could be expected to engulf invading infectious organisms and bring them into intimate contact with their stored silver. This is a different mechanism of defense and it appears there may be some basis for researching silver as a preventative and treatment of infectious disease.

How Do I Use Colloidal Silver?

You can use Colloidal Silver externally or internally. Larger animals are best dosed with a plastic syringe for the initial 5 day booster dose for acute illness. The following 2.5ml daily dose may be added to food or water placed in a plastic container or bucket.

Colloidal Silver works well when given as an ajunct to a healthy diet. Silver levels in the body are commonly very low especially in animals contracting illnesses, suggesting that our soils are seriously deficient in the mineral.

One 500ml bottle of 10 parts per million colloidal silver, given as suggested used as a yearly booster is recommended to assist in keeping general immunity high. Prevention is the best medicine.

Colloidal Silver can be used against viral, bacterial and fungal infections and works best when it comes into direct contact with the pathogen for at least 6 minutes. As the disease producing organisms are destroyed they need to be eliminated from the body through normal channels. It is important therefore to make sure the animal you are treating has access to plenty of clean water at all times and is encouraged to drink as much as possible. Some animals will drink water to which Colloidal Silver has been added seemingly knowing it to be beneficial.

Large wounds, absesses or other skin irritations can be washed or sprayed with Colloidal Silver (plastic spray bottle top available for ease of application), then the healing topical cream applied.

Colloidal Silver has shown dramatic results in the case of very young animals such as foals and calves scouring. Given with a syringe twice daily it has the most beneficial effect. It has been observed that many animals gain weight and energy following a course of Colloidal Silver suggesting that their general wellbeing is enhanced.

Symptoms such as coughs and colds, hoof absesses and eye infections respond best by administration of a high dosage for 5 days followed by the daily recommended allowance.

Great results have been noted when using Colloidal Silver for 'Seedy Toe', over-reach injury in horses and for greasy heel infections - allow the area to be soaked in Colloidal Silver for 6 minutes before applying the Healing Cream.
