Children and the Risks of Contaminated Water

Know the facts about your children’s drinking water

The following excerpt from a report entitled Just Add Water from the Environmental Working Group by Brian A. Cohen, Richard Wiles, Erik D. Olson, and Chris Campbell, should help families recognize the importance of drinking pure, contaminant free water.

  • Drinking water standards have many other shortcomings beyond their failure to regulate common drinking water contaminants such as radon, Cryptosporidium and pesticides like cyanazine. One of the most serious is the fact that most current federal drinking water standards do not make any specific accommodation for the special risks and heavy consumption of water by infants and young children.
  • One-year-olds drink more than twice as much water relative to their size as adults. Measured in terms of total fluid intake, an adult would have to drink 35 cans of soda per day to match the drinking habits of the average one-year-old. Because of this, infants and young children are exposed to more water-borne contaminants, relative to their size, than adults. (emphasis mine) This higher exposure combined with the increased vulnerability of infants to many chemical and microbiological contaminants, means infants and young children face increased risks from virtually all contaminants in drinking water, and that current standards almost always do not provide adequate protections for this vulnerable portion of the population.
  • In October of 1995, the EPA announced a new policy to protect infants and children from exposure to toxic substances. At that time, EPA Administrator Carol Browner noted that the policy:
    “…will, for the first time, ensure that we consistently and explicitly evaluate environmental health risks of infants and children in all risk assessments, risk characterizations, and environmental and public health standards that we set for the nation.” (EPA 1995)
  • In justifying the need for this new policy the EPA cited two National Academy of Sciences studies (NRC 1993, NRC 1994) that called for major policy changes at the EPA to integrate explicit protections for children when evaluating health risks from environmental contaminants.
  • To date, just two (lead and nitrate) of the more than eighty drinking water standards have been set explicitly to protect infants and children from immediate or long term health risk. No standards have been modified since the EPA policy was announced.
  • Similarly, drinking water standards do not account for multiple contaminants in a single glass of water. Instead, they are set as though people are exposed to one contaminant at a time, which very often is not the case.

Biological Contaminants

eColi bacterium

E. coli, giardia and cryptosporidia cysts can all cause gastro-intestinal problems where dehydration from diarrhea and vomiting may be more severe and rapid than in adults.  These contaminants can cause death.  In 1998, EPA established the Interim Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule, which strengthens control over microbial contaminants, including the pathogen, Cryptosporidium. By 2002, public water systems using surface water (or ground water under the direct influence of surface water) and serving more than 10,000 people must comply with the rule. States must adopt the new standards by 2001.  In some people, particularly children under 5 years of age and the elderly, E. coli 0157:H7 infection can also cause a complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome, in which the red blood cells are destroyed and the kidneys fail. About 2% of infections lead to this complication.

What can you do to protect your children from Pathogens in their drinking water?

Imagine, you and your family can have safe drinking water wherever you are for just pennies and without the need to boil water or use harsh chemicals or drugs. There are many ways to purify water that use harmful chemicals (chlorine) or boiling, but they are either harmful to your health or cumbersome when camping or hiking. NutraSilver weighs 1 ounce and can be carried where ever you go.

NutraSilver is a natural mineral and it is inexpensive (one 30ml bottle contains enough drops to purify approximately 1,200 liters of the most germ-laden water drinking water on earth). NutraSilver is easily supplied and is the favored colloidal silver of millions of people around the world today. Third-world countries use it to purify their drinking water and to wash their fruits and vegetables without fear of microbial infection.

Protect your family, get some NutraSilver now.

MRSA Deaths are Completely Unnecessary

This happens all too often; over 20,000 deaths a year in the USA alone

A 6 year old child goes to the hospital for a routine tonsillectomy and all goes well.  The child goes home two days later and dies from MRSA.

MRSA Staph Facts 2012 Update

  • STAPH MRSA Related Hospitalizations have increased 119% Center for Disease Control, 2007
  • 1999 to 2005, MRSA-related hospitalizations more than doubled, growing from 127,036 to 278,203 and the number of hospitalizations involving S. aureus-related infections also increased from 294,570 to 477,927. Center for Disease Control, 2007
  • MRSA is deadly because it burrows into the skin and gets into the bloodstream. “It poisons the blood,” “Then, it starts to destroy the lungs, if left untreated, it can destroy muscle tissue and lead to life-threatening infections in bones and vital organs,” “Over the years, MRSA has traditionally been found in hospitals, but now, you can contract it in homes, schools, locker rooms and health clubs.” “This thing really gets the attention of medicine because this is a kind of bacteria that we can’t kill anymore,” “It’s outsmarted us, and it keeps ahead of us.” Dr. OZ on Oprah Winfrey, April, 2009
  • “Staph bacteria can cause different illnesses including pneumonia, skin, blood, and bone infections.” Carnegie-Mellon Sports Medicine March, 2008
  • The rate of infections caused by the MRSA variety of staph rose:
    • 9% per year in the Northeast
    • 11% per year in the Midwest
    • 12% per year in the South.
    • West was 18% per year during the study period. STAPH NEWS, December 7, 2007
  • MRSA infections (19,000 deaths) have outpaced the rate of deaths caused by AIDS-related illness (17,011 deaths) in this country. (JAMA, 2005)

WHO, CDC and the UN

“The rapidly escalating human suffering and loss of life from MRSA in the United States and in other countries needs to be recognized and an immediate international response for prevention, awareness and education is imperative,” states Jeanine Thomas founder of MRSA Survivors Network and World MRSA Day. MRSA deaths in the Unites States have surpassed the number of those dying from HIV/AIDS every year.

A study released this year shows a projection of MRSA infections in the United States to rise from 2.9 million to 4.2 million from 2009-2015 and skin infection treatment days in the United States are projected to rise from 20 million to 30 million from 2009-2015 and with a yearly estimated cost of $9.5 billion. Yet the response from international and U.S. health officials has been silence.

The World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations (UN) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) must begin to understand that the MRSA and antimicrobial resistance global crisis has been seriously neglected and deserves immediate attention from institutional and health authorities in developed and developing nations. The denial among government officials of either the existence of MRSA or its prevalence is a significant barrier to addressing the global MRSA epidemic. MRSA is not just prevalent in humans but also in animals, the environment and in food supplies.

Is this the end of the “antibiotic era?”

Many scientists believe so.  As bacteria continue to resist more and more potent antibiotics, we are falling behind since there are very few new antibiotics each year.  We are running out of time and MRSA is winning the battle. In the USA, 80% of all antibiotics goes to livestock.  New information recently released by the FDA, demonstrates that MRSA is now is chicken, meat and pork.  Have a nice dinner.

If Antibiotics Don’t Work, Then What Does?

It is rampant in hospitals, gyms and within the community.  Most antibiotics are no longer effective against this kind of Staph infection, so medical science is frantically searching for a non-toxic solution.  In FDA-certified independent in-vitro lab tests, NutraSilver killed 1.33 billion cells of MRSA in 60 seconds at the rate of 99.9999% with only one drop. If you took MRSA Staph bacterium the same amount of MRSA and placed it in a vat of antibiotics, nothing would happen!  MRSA does not care about Methicillin or Vancomyacin any longer!

Different Approach, Better Results

Candida Totally Destroyed Using Colloidal Silver and NO Antibiotics!

Colloidal Silver Candida Treatment

Candida "Thrush"

Prescription antibiotics used to fight infections kill all bacteria indiscriminately, including the friendly bacteria that keep fungi such as Candida in check. Two popular and natural means to rid the body of Candida infections are to change the body’s PH through diet, or to treat the affected area either topically or internally, using a colloidal silver Candida treatment.

Candidiasis is an over abundance of naturally occurring yeast that grows into a fungal infection when an environment is created that allows the yeast to bloom. Friendly aerobic bacteria present in the body generally act to control the level of this yeast. Audiophiles is a common example that may become lacking due to dietary restrictions. Diabetics are particularly afflicted as their above normal sugar levels can provide an over abundant food source for the yeast.

Untreated, internal Candida in the intestinal tract can build up to levels that eventually enter and invade the blood stream to become leaky gut syndrome. The yeast can grow long roots into the lining of the intestinal wall, allowing access to the bloodstream. This can often lead to a compromised immune system that provokes other illnesses. The fungus produces microscopic barb-like hooks, called rhizoids, that cut into tissue causing irritation around the infected area.

This potent colloidal silver Candida treatment fights fungi on contact both internally and externally. Topically, colloidal silver is safely applied without worry of adverse affects. Recommended applications are two to three times per day until the symptoms subside. Internally, Colloidal silver dosage should be small at first a couple of times per day.

It should be noted that when a person begins treating Candida internally, the release of toxic waste by the abundant dying fungus can cause a person to feel initially worse. This is referred to as Candida die off or a Herxheimer reaction. For this reason it is suggested to begin treating the internal infection gradually at first, with small amounts of colloidal silver, in order to keep the waste substances to a level that is manageable for the body to expel. People who use colloidal silver  topically, usually report that it will cure athlete’s foot, vaginal infections, and skin fungal infections.

The most effective kind of colloidal silver out there is generally copper in color, and doesn’t require special, light proof bottling. True colloidal silver is often a rare supplement, since most companies are simply selling ionic silver, which is a clear, colorless liquid. Colloidal silver is superior because of it’s particle size in comparison to ionic silver. Both are effective, however, it’s ideal to find the true colloidal silver.

Alright, so what is the bottom line?

Simply stated, antibiotics are dangerous mycotoxins and fungal metabolites that kill bacteria—even the good bacteria that are present in our intestines. This upsets the delicate balance of the yeast to bacteria ratio in the digestive system, giving the yeast fungi the upper hand in creating an infection. Once in the blood, a yeast infection spreads throughout the body.

Colloidal silver is thought to stop Candida by deactivating enzymes responsible for the metabolism of oxygen within the Candida organism. Many Candida sufferers find relief through NutraSilver® use.

“I must have gone to the Doctor 4 or 5 times and used every medicine he gave me for Candida. I was on Steroid pills, antibiotics, creams… you name it. Months went by and it just seem to get worse. I finally did some research on the internet and ran across a website called NutraSilver.  I first applied it on the spots and after 4 days or so, the spots started going away. However, I had to end up covering my entire lower legs in NutraSilver® to keep the Fungus from relocating. It took about 2 full weeks to completely go away, BUT it is gone…and I am so thankful. What a nightmare!!!!”—Lucy, 2009

 

Pharma mis-information aside, here are real facts about colloidal silver

Ingesting Colloidal Silver

Taken orally, the silver solution is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then transported quickly to the body cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing may result in faster absorption. Colloidal silver is eliminated by the kidneys, lymph system and bowel after several days. If routinely exposed to dangerous pathogenic germs, some recommend a regular daily intake as a protection. In cases of minor burns, an accumulation of colloidal silver may hasten healing, reducing the possibility of scar tissue and infection. It is believed by many in the natural healing arts that the lives of millions of people who are susceptible to chronic low-grade infections can be enhanced by this preventative health measure.

Chronic or Serious Conditions

If your body is extremely ill or toxic, do not be in a hurry to clear up everything at once. If pathogens are killed off too quickly, the body’s five eliminatory channels (liver, kidneys, skin, lungs and bowel) may be temporarily overloaded, causing flu-like conditions, headache, extreme fatigue, dizziness, nausea or aching muscles. Ease off on the colloidal silver to a smaller amount and increase your non-tap water intake. Regular bowel movements are a must in order to relieve the discomforts of detoxification. Resolve to reduce sugar and saturated fats from the diet, and exercise more. Given the opportunity, the body’s natural ability to heal may amaze you.

Topical Uses

Some have used colloidal silver in a nasal spray mister – to reach the sinuses and nasal passages. Spray bottles have been used for topical use on kitchen and bathroom surfaces, skin, sore throat, eyes, burns, etc. Colloidal silver is painless on cuts, abrasions, in open wounds, in the nostrils for a stuffy nose, and even in a baby’s eyes because, unlike some antiseptics, it does not destroy tissue cells. It’s excellent as an underarm deodorant, since most underarm odor is caused by bacteria breaking down substances released by the sweat glands!

Some Common Uses of Colloidal Silver

Natural health practitioners have for years recommended taking colloidal silver daily, for four days, to establish a level, then dose daily for maintenance (proportional to body weight for children). After six weeks, a pause of several weeks has also been recommended by some natural healing arts doctors. Also, colloidal silver can be applied directly to cuts, scrapes, and open sores, or on a bandage for warts. It can be applied on eczema, itches, acne or bug bites. To purify water, add one drop per liter, shake well and wait six minutes. Mixed this way, it’s tasteless. It is not an allopathic poison.

Veterinary and Garden Use

Colloidal silver has worked just as well on pets of all kinds. Used in proportion to body weight, it should bring the same results. In the garden, field or greenhouse, add enough to the water or soil – and the plants will do the rest.

Tolerance To Disease Organisms

We have all heard of the “super-germs” that are resistant to most modern antibiotics. Some believe that single-celled germs cannot mutate into silver-resistant forms, as happens with conventional antibiotics. Therefore no tolerance to colloidal silver would develop through mutation. Also, colloidal silver has not been demonstrated to interact or interfere with other medicines being taken. Inside the body, silver apparently does not form toxic compounds or react with anything other than a germ’s oxygen-metabolizing enzyme. Colloidal silver may truly be a safe, natural remedy for many of mankind’s ills. Additionally, there has never been a drug interaction reported between colloidal silver and any other medication. It’s difficult to overdose – unless large amounts are ingested. Colloidal silver has been reported by
users to be both a remedy and a prevention for numerous infections, colds, flus, and fermentations due to various bacteria, viruses or fungi, even the non-apparent low-grade, general body infections many people have. Living organisms are in the colloidal chemical state, not the crystalline state. Substances already in that form may be more readily assimilated by the body.

Colloidal silver is the most useable form of a reputedly effective germ
fighter

  • There is far too much MIS-information about Colloidal Silver
  • Silver is a NOBEL METAL LIKE GOLD
  • Humans, arguably have been using silver for over 4,000 years.
  • Try to find even one documented death from ingesting real colloidal silver. Good luck.

According to Larry C. Ford, M.D., at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA School of Medicine, 1988:

“There is no known disease-causing organism that can live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of simple metallic silver,” 

“Colloidal silver appears to be safe for children and pregnant and nursing women. It is tasteless, odorless, contains no free radicals, is harmless to human enzymes and has no adverse reactions with medications.”

Kurt Grange, Ph.D., N.D., is a nutritional bio-physiologist and author:

“Colloidal silver has proven to be toxic to all tested species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and many viruses. More importantly—unlike conventional antibiotics—infectious agents, cannot build a resistance to silver.”

“Taken internally, it may improve digestion, help prevent colds, flu and all organism-caused diseases. It can be used as a douche, atomized, nebulized or inhaled. Applied externally, it has been shown to help with things such as skin abrasions and burns (including sun burn). It can also be dropped into the eyes and ears to help the body overcome infection.”

MRSA Superbug Lawsuit: Court Orders FDA to Do Its Job

MRSA is found on your dinner table

80% of all antibiotics use in the USA is for animals

This week a judge told FDA to reverse course regarding antibiotic overuse in livestock and protect the effectiveness of the medicine for humans.

For the past 35 years the FDA has supposedly been reviewing the routine use of antibiotics in animal feed when in fact the agency was simply sitting on its hands. Then, last December, the agency caved to pressure and quietly withdrew any attempt to require the removal of antibiotics from animal feed.

Back in 1977, FDA concluded that feeding animals low doses of certain antibiotics used in human medicine, namely, penicillin and tetracyclines, could promote antibiotic-resistant bacteria capable of infecting people. Despite this conclusion—and in direct violation of laws requiring that the agency move on its findings—FDA failed to take action for the next 35 years.

The so-called “preventive” use of antibiotics in livestock is routine and widespread—80% of all antibiotics sold in US go into farm animal feed. Factory farms use them to ward off illness in animals that are kept in overcrowded, filthy living conditions, which are a perfect environment for the spread of illness. These antibiotics are also used to promote increased growth in animals.

MRSA "superbug" in your food!

How much of your beef is contaminated with MRSA?

However, antibiotics given to animals are transferred to humans through direct contact, environmental exposure, and the consumption and handling of contaminated meat and poultry products—making humans vulnerable to antibiotic-resistant superbugs, which are now a global problem. Moreover, a study found that up to half of US meat was contaminated with antibiotic-resistant staph.

Federal Court rules against the FDA

US Federal Court, New York

Now, as a result of the lawsuit, FDA is forced to take action on its own safety findings by withdrawing approval for most non-therapeutic uses of penicillin and tetracyclines in animal feed, unless the industry can prove in public hearings that those drug uses do not affect human health. The judge also ruled that FDA must warn drug makers that the government may soon ban the agricultural use of antibiotics for animals that are not sick.

Court instructions to the FDA

“For the foregoing reasons, Plaintiffs’ Motion for Summary Judgment on their first claim for relief is granted and Defendants’ Motion for Summary Judgment is denied. Defendants are hereby ordered to initiate withdrawal proceedings for the relevant NADAs / ANADAs (approvals to use antibiotics).

Specifically, the Commissioner of the FDA or the Director of the CVM must re issue a notice of the proposed withdrawals (which may be updated) and provide an opportunity for a hearing to the relevant drug sponsors; if drug sponsors timely request hearings and raise a genuine and substantial issue of fact, the FDA must hold a public evidentiary hearing. If, at the hearing, the drug sponsors fail to show that use of the drugs is safe, the Commissioner must issue a withdrawal order.”

Who does the FDA protect, anyway?What exactly is the Court ordering the FDA to do?

Although the Court is ordering the FDA to complete mandatory withdrawal proceedings the relevant penicillin and tetracycline NADAs/ANADAs, the Court is not ordering a particular outcome as to the final issuance of a withdrawal order. If the drug sponsors demonstrate that the subtherapeutic use of penicillin and/or tetracyclines is safe, then the Commissioner cannot withdraw approval.

So Ordered.

MRSA Now Accounts for More Deaths in the USA than HIV/ AIDS

The greatest challenge to medical science today is MRSA, the number one cause of infectious deaths in hospitals. Since the mid 1950’s MRSA has evolved to become nearly invincible to most antibiotics. Because of this, science is frantically seeking a replacement the will eliminate MRSA symptoms while avoiding the constant cycle of new antibiotic, MRSA mutates and is impervious to it so new antibiotics must be created.

What can you do to protect you and your family?

You can PREVENT MRSA infection by taking small amounts of colloidal silver.
 
“Colloidal silver has proven to be toxic to all tested species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and many viruses.

NutraSilver really came through for us!”— Mike, MD, 2010

 

MRSA in Your Food; Shocking News

I don’t know about you, but I prefer not to deliberately consume MRSA in my food.  Yet that is what is occurring in American diets; MRSA is rampant in our meat supplies, fresh on your dinner-plate!

Money or Health, take your pick

Livestock farmers in the United States are coming under increasing pressure to cut down on the non-therapeutic use of antibiotics, after experts revealed that antibiotic resistance could aid the evolution of superbugs such as MRSA in humans.

Speaking at a science conference in London on Monday 26 March, Prof Lance Price, lead author a study into the use of antibiotics in livestock, said genome sequencing had provided “rock solid” evidence that antibiotic resistance had contributed to the emergence of the superbug MRSA.

EU ban

The EU banned the use of antibiotics as growth promoters in 2006, but US producers still use them widely, for growth promotion and to compensate for over-crowding and unsanitary conditions, said Erik Olson, Director of Food Programs of Pew Health Group.  At least they care about consumers in Europe!

In the US it is estimated that livestock producers use 300mg of antibiotics for every kg of meat produced, compared to UK producers, who only use approximately 115mg/kg.

“By aggressively controlling antibiotics in food animal production and human medicine we can ratchet back resistance considerably,” said Prof Price.

US failing to protect it’s citizens in favor of higher profits for meat producers

The experts admitted the US was significantly behind Europe and warned that its failure to address the issue immediately could have implications on trade in the future.

A US court recently ordered the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to address the overuse of penicillin and tetracycline in animal feed as growth promoters.

What can you, the consumer do to protect yourself?

You can buy organic meat only.  this is the only way to ensure that MRSA is not in your diet because in order do obtain the “Organic” designation, the meat producer must be certified that they are NOT using antibiotics on their livestock.

What can you do if you suspect you have MRSA?

When antibiotics are administered too often — whether to humans or to animals — a few strong bacteria survive and reproduce, giving rise to new generations of resistant organisms. The use of silver was tested against MRSA and staph in several studies and found to be effective. FDA-certified independent lab tests demonstrate that NutraSilver has zero toxicity to the human body, yet it is utterly lethal to the tested pathogens.

Candia; An Exciting New Approach That Really Works Quickly!

What is Candida?

Candida yeast is found naturally in the body, but is normally kept under control by friendly bacteria, such as acidophilus. But candida yeast often gets out of control following the use of antibiotics. The antibiotic kills off the friendly acidophilus and aerobic bacteria but does not affect the yeast. Without the friendly organisms such as the multiple strains of acidophilus to control it, candida grows fast.

Some believe Candida is the source of many other diseases

Thus, candida is a common contributor to many diseases and conditions, such as AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, flus, etc.. Almost all disease and health problems are greatly aggravated by candida.

The best antibiotic commonly used to treat this condition is Nystatin. But Nystatin is only marginally effective against yeast, and remember that the problems probably started with the use of antibiotics to begin with.

So what is this exciting new approach?

Really? there is something that really works?

The colloidal silver provides a three-fold attack on the problems of candida. First, the colloidal silver kills off anaerobic bacteria and virii wherever it comes in contact with them. Therefore, the colloidal silver virtually provides a secondary immune system against all types of disease and infections, while treating the candida. Thus much of the problems of candida are treated immediately, before the candida can be cleaned out of the system. Second, colloidal silver is unusually effective in treating the candida infection itself. And third, colloidal silver has a strange and dynamic way of healing injured and damaged tissues fast. Since yeast infections of all kinds usually attack and consume the living tissue, a healing process is badly needed, and colloidal silver has a very unique way of healing these tissues fast.

What else is colloidal silver useful for?

Users continually report that colloidal silver will cure athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, as well as candida infections of the skin very quickly and then heals the damaged tissues. However, these are often signs of an inner infection. Until the yeast infection within the body is cured, external infections keep on returning. That is no reason not to treat these conditions. But if they return, it is time to look to the source of the problems as being inward. One can, of course, find explanations for the sources of the reinfection. However, a healthy body seldom succumbs to these infections.

Colloidal silver is thought to stop Candida by deactivating enzymes responsible for the metabolism of oxygen within the Candida organism. Many Candida sufferers find relief through NutraSilver® treatment.

“I must have gone to the Doctor 4 or 5 times and used every medicine he gave me for Candida. I was on Steroid pills, antibiotics, creams… you name it. Months went by and it just seem to get worse. I finally did some research on the internet and ran across a website called NutraSilver.  I first applied it on the spots and after 4 days or so, the spots started going away.

Scientists find rinsing mouth with silver treats infections

Is Colloidal silver the perfect mouthwash?

The amazing infection-treating properties of silver seem to be flooding the pages of scientific journals these days, as researchers, scientists, and medical experts are finally fessing up to the fact that this unique element possesses healing properties far superior to pharmaceutical antibiotics and drugs. And a new study published in the Society for Applied Microbiology journal Letters in Applied Microbiology reveals that silver is fully capable of killing yeast-based mouth infections caused by Candida albicans and Candida glabrata.

Yeast Meets Colloidal Silver

Professor Mariana Henriques and her colleagues from the University of Minho in Portugal evaluated the effects of a silver nanoparticle solution on oral thrush, dental stomatitis, and various other mouth infections caused by the two aforementioned strains of yeast. They came to the conclusion that, in all cases, the silver solution was effective at combating these infection-causing yeast strains, even when the size of the silver particles used varied dramatically.

When anti-fungals fail

“With the emergence of Candida infections which are frequently resistant to the traditional antifungal therapies, there is an increasing need for alternative approaches,” commented Henriques about her findings. “So, silver nanoparticles appear to be a new potential strategy to combat these infections. As the nanoparticles are relatively stable in liquid medium they could be developed into a mouthwash solution in the near future.”

To many in the natural health community, these findings may not necessarily be all that revolutionary as thousands of people have been using ionic and colloidal silver solutions internally to fight off disease and infection, and externally on wounds to boost healing and prevent infection. For centuries, in fact, silver has been used for medicinal purposes, that is until the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began marginalizing it in favor of pharmaceutical drugs in the 1940s.

In 2000, researchers from China and Korea found that silver is also an effective treatment against Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Staphylococcus aureus (staph infection). Tests revealed that silver effectively unhinges the cytoplasmic membranes from bacterial cell walls, and prevents the DNA of these bacterial mechanisms from replicating. In essence, silver was found to demobilize deadly bacteria and prevent it from spreading.

Simply stated, antibiotics are dangerous mycotoxins and fungal metabolites that kill bacteria—even the good bacteria that are present in our intestines. This upsets the delicate balance of the yeast to bacteria ratio in the digestive system, giving the yeast fungi the upper hand in creating an infection. Once in the blood, a yeast infection spreads throughout the body.

Colloidal silver is thought to stop Candida by deactivating enzymes responsible for the metabolism of oxygen within the Candida organism. Many Candida sufferers find relief through NutraSilver® treatment.

Lucy, in 2009 said “I must have gone to the Doctor 4 or 5 times and used every medicine he gave me for Candida. I was on Steroid pills, antibiotics, creams… you name it.

Where Can You Get Safe, Really Safe Drinking Water?

Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)

The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) is the main federal law that ensures the quality of Americans’ drinking water.Under SDWA, EPA sets standards for drinking water quality and oversees the states, localities, and water suppliers who implement those standards.

SDWA was originally passed by Congress in 1974 to protect public health by regulating the nation’s public drinking water supply. The law was amended in 1986 and 1996 and requires many actions to protect drinking water and its sources: rivers, lakes, reservoirs, springs, and ground water wells.

Government scientists now generally agree, however, that many chemicals commonly found in drinking water pose serious risks at low concentrations.

And independent studies in such journals as Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology; Environmental Health Perspectives; American Journal of Public Health; and Archives of Environmental and Occupational Health, as well as reports published by the National Academy of Sciences, suggest that millions of Americans become sick each year from drinking contaminated water, with maladies from upset stomachs to cancer and birth defects.

Those studies have tracked hospital admissions and disease patterns after chemicals were detected in water supplies. They found that various contaminants were often associated with increased incidents of disease. That research — like all large-scale studies of human illnesses — sometimes cannot definitively say that chemicals in drinking water were the sole cause of disease.

But even the E.P.A., which has ultimate responsibility for the Safe Drinking Water Act, has concluded that millions of Americans have been exposed to drinking water that fails to meet a federal health benchmark, according to records analyzed by The Times. (Studies and E.P.A. summaries can be found in the Resources section of nytimes.com/water.)

Safe Drinking Water for Traveling

Nothing ruins a good trip like getting sick — and we’re not talking about a few extra bathroom stops. Contaminated drinking water is one of the leading sources of health problems for travelers, and can cause anything from mild gastrointestinal distress to serious bacterial diseases.

The most common cause of water-borne illness is bacteria, such as E. coli, cholera and salmonella, but illness can also be caused by protozoa (including giardia and cryptosporidium), viruses (like hepatitis A, polio and rotavirus) and chemical pollutants.

In many cases, travelers become ill simply because the pathogens in the water are foreign to their immune systems, while locals have adapted to the water supply and can drink it without problems.

The best way to protect yourself is to avoid local tap water and instead seek out bottled water; when that’s not available, boiling tap water generally kills most micro-organisms, and there are a number of good water filters and purification tablets that can easily be stowed in your carry-on.

Water Purification Tactics

  • Boiling water is generally the most effective way to remove parasite contamination. Maintain a rolling boil for at least one minute (longer at higher altitudes, where the boiling point may be lower). Let the water cool itself slowly without adding ice. Allow any sediments and particles to settle before drinking, and then decant the water from the top into another container.
  • Commercially available iodine or chlorine tablets kill bacteria and viruses, but are ineffective against some protozoa (like cryptosporidium). Iodine is the more effective of the two solutions, but is not recommended for long-term use, especially by pregnant women or travelers with a history of thyroid problems. Potable Aqua, composed of the iodine compound tetraglycine hydroperiodide, is the most popular brand of water purification tablet. The company also offers chlorine dioxide tablets, which are effective against cryptosporidium as well as the other organisms killed by iodine. Read directions on all tablets systems for tablet-water ratios and dissolving times; 20 minutes or more may be required for the tablets to dissolve completely, especially in colder water.
  • If you do not have tablets, two drops of common chlorine bleach in a quart of water will help as a last resort.water filter filtration camp camping drinkOutdoor stores like Cabela’s carry water filters and purification systems. It is essential that the filter system you choose is suited to your needs. A filter with an insufficiently small pore size, or one that is not designed to filter viruses, may permit some contaminants to get through. The most effective strategy is to buy a system that combines filtering with chemical purification — or make one yourself by using both a filter and an iodine treatment.

Drinking Water; A MEDICAL TIME BOMB

Pathogenic Drinking Water: Closer Than You Think…

Recent research studies have identified a wide range of microbial problem areas including:

  • community drinking water supplies
  • delivered and store-bought bottled water
  • water coolers
  •  water lines in dental offices
  • shower heads
  • air conditioning systems
  • home plumbing systems
  • and even under-sink reverse osmosis water treatment systems purchased, ironically, for the removal of water contaminants

SOURCES OF MICROBIAL CONTAMINATION:

The natural question is: where are these pathogens coming from? Part of the answer may lie in the findings of recent studies conducted in dental offices where a wide variety of pathogen microbes were found at extraordinary levels in dental unit water lines.

Recently, a well-known California dentist died from Legionella pneumophilia which was traced to the water coming from the dental instrument water lines in his office. A fatal case of endocarditis was recently traced to contamination of dental water lines encountered during a simple teeth cleaning operation.

What Solutions Work in Your Home?

Not trusting tap or bottled water, many have turned to a variety of home water treatment systems. Unfortunately, most of these popular systems aren’t up to the task of dealing with these microbial problems.

Reverse osmosis systems have long been known to be incapable of dealing with bacterial problems. Indeed, recent Canadian studies have shown that they quickly become a massive breeding ground for pathogens which have been directly correlated with illnesses in most homes tested.

Carbon filtration, including those variations are used to allegedly deal with biological problems are clearly inadequate solutions—and, as noted over the years, carbon filters have their own propensity for developing heavy biological loadings.

Ozone treatment and ultraviolet irradiation can have very powerful disinfecting efficacy, however it is difficult to achieve this result close to the point of use, and this is the critical aspect of utility in dealing with the microbial contamination of water vessels and water lines used by consumers.

Steam distillation provides a secure approach to microbiological decontamination leading to production of safe, sterile drinking water and as implied on the NBC Dateline series, the boiling/steaming aspect of distillation may be the only practical and effective technique available to the homeowner. Until now.

We need to remember that the “carcasses” of bacteria contain toxic substances and pyrogens. So the physical removal of microbes, dead or alive, at the point of use through distillation techniques or contemporary micro filtration technology is likely to have an important role in addressing the problem in many circumstances, like the dental water lines, for example.

New laboratory techniques and systems based on an assessment of total bacterial contamination and some evaluation of disease-causing potential are needed, and fortunately are being developed. There is no need to wait; we have them for you right now!

These methods, combined with techniques emerging from molecular biology will provide the basis for more judicious selection of suitable point-of-use prevention technologies, both in the U.S. and overseas. The end result will be to reduce the impact of waterborne pathogens on the public’s health–and to rebuild the consumer’s confidence in the purity of the water they drink.
