A Silver Lining for Women's Health
by Sherrill Sellman, N.D.

Being a woman isn't easy. The world of feminine hygiene is fraught with a plethora of discomforts and health challenges. The health statistics say it all: 80 percent of women will be exposed to human papillomavirus (HPV); nearly 75 percent of all adult women will have at least one genital yeast infection; bacterial vaginosis (BV), the most common vaginal infection Click here for more.

Safety of Silver Sol

Silver Sol is produced in extremely low parts per million (5-40 ppm) and has never even been identified as a potential for problem in the water treatment plants or in the environment. This is significant because the EPA has a rating for toxic spills. This identifies the amount of a compound that would cause a toxic event. For instance Clorox would qualify as a toxic event if 3 gallons were spilled. In contrast, The EPA would require a spill of 12.5 million gallons of Silver Sol in order to be classified as a toxic event (5). This would require spilling the entire contents of 12.5 oil tankers at one time in one place without any other water to dilute it. There is no consumer or combination of consumers that store this much silver anywhere in the country.
An average water treatment plant treats about 30 to 70 million gallons of water a day and it would take a spill of about 7 tankers full of Silver Sol directly into the treatment water to bring the concentration to 1 part per million. This is still a very safe level for fish, and an impossible event to happen anywhere in the world.

Safety

Silver Sol fulfills the definition of non-toxic, in that it passes through the body unchanged, which means it does not produce any harmful metabolites. Marino (Chem. Bioil. Interactions, 1974), and Berger (Antimicrob Agents, 1976), confirmed that the effective dosage level of pure silver sol is safe for mammalian tissues. The CRC Handbook to Chemistry and Physics (sec 15, pg 8.) states: “While silver is not considered to be toxic, most of its salts are poisonous.” This is why Silver Sol containing only elemental silver and water is virtually devoid of toxicity. The only adverse event known for silver is Argyria, yet the EPA's lowest observed adverse event level (LOAEL) is given to silver. The EPA has determined that, administering one gram total elemental silver over a 2 year period presents no risk for developing Argyria (US EPA Silver; CASRN 7440-22-4 1996). This means that you could safely inject or take an IV drip of 250 cc (10 ppm Silver Sol) every day for a year without risking the development of Argyria. It should be noted that these are Intravenous recommendations and everyday oral ingestion is significantly safer.

Nano Particles

The definition of a nano particle is that it must be a tiny .05 nano meters in size. This means that only the smallest of particles can be placed under the label of nano particle. Some media groups suggest that a nano particle of a specific size (.001 nm) can be dangerous by collecting and sticking in the lungs causing cancer in a similar way that asbestos causes mesothelioma. Silver Sol is 2.34 nm nm and does not fit in the alleged size parameter. In addition Silver Sol has the unique ability to separate into six separate segments allowing to the particle to morph into or out of any situation ( Roy, R. Material Science Investigation, 2008) The electron microscopy published in this study, illustrates the segmentation of this unique silver sol and its ability to utilize segmentation to adapt to its environment. For this and other reasons silver sol is not going to be a threat to stick in the lungs.
In a publication on H5N1 Bird flu (Pedersen, 2008) Silver Sol was used to help prevent the bird flu and a simultaneous toxicity study was performed wherein 10 times normal 100 times normal and 200 times normal amounts of silver sol were given to mice and lung necropsy was performed to determine if the lung tissues were damaged. It was found that the lung tissues had reduced viral titers, were less inflamed and weighed less indicating that the lungs were not being harmed by nano particles. In addition the lower lung weights indicate that there was a reduction in the inflammation supporting the safety of the patented Silver Sol as a safe particle.

Safety (MSDS materials safety data sheet summary)

  • Silver sol contains 0.0009% silver in distilled water.

  • EPA approved as non-irritating to skin, eyes, lungs, or mucous membranes.

  • Argyria and nephrotoxicity are extremely unlikely to occur with this product due to the low concentration of contained silver. (EPA)

  • An 8 oz bottle contains 2.4 mcg silver

  • If a spill occurred it would take 12,500,000 gallons of silver sol to be considered by the EPA as a “reportable spill”.

  • According to EPA Guidelines, the oral consumption of small amounts of silver in water on a daily basis, poses NO significant risk.

  • Silver sol would not be considered toxic at a dose of 5 mg/kg in mice and 4 8 oz bottles of silver sol 10 ppm (NAMSA)

  • Elemental silver is not considered a hazardous metal (Merck Index).

Safety

The Merck Index reports the following about silver:
It is a metal that does not accumulate in the fats and is the only metal that is not considered to be a heavy metal because it does not produce heavy metal poisoning
(12) Merck Index., 1999. Silver. 1:645)

Non-toxic at 5000 mg/kg body weight.
90%-99% leaves the body by the next day (13) IRIS report)

Safe and non-toxic (it would take a spill of over 12 million gallons to be considered a reportable spill. (16) EPA #D011).
