We all know that cancers are treated by chemotherapy and this process is undeniably harsh and painful. During the 1970s and 1980s, a discovery of the healing benefits of silver ion was found and had come up with the result as an agent to fight against cancer. This discovery was not fully expanded throughout the years but today, some new clinical studies showed the effectiveness of colloidal silver against cancer cells and tumors and published it.
One of the most popular newspapers of Britain published a positive article about silver saying it is effective as chemotherapy with fewer side effects. Researchers compared silver to Cisplatin in terms of its side effects. Cisplatin is a chemotherapy drug that cures various types of cancers such as lymphomas, carcinomas, and sarcomas but its threatening side effects such as vomiting, nausea, and even kidney damage could possibly end the life of the patient before cancer does.
Silver now being used already in some products like deodorant was found out having no side effects and this composition is far cheaper than Cisplatin. A research was conducted at the University of Leeds and made a lab tests regarding the exposure of colon and breast cancer cells to silver based chemicals within six days.
As a result, silver composition was claimed to be as effective as Cisplatin at killing cancer cells and its side effects are fewer compared to it. This was published in a journal named Dalton Transactions. The researchers were not able to explain how the cancer cells were killed by the silver since they need more time to study it but they think that the ligand has something to do with its effectiveness.
A ligand is an ion or molecule that binds on the surrounding atoms of the silver and it is thought that it is responsible in helping the silver ion to wipe out cancer cells as it enters the body.
Going back to the 70s and 80s, the famous Dr. Robert O. Becker who wrote about the healing benefits of silver ions that are electrically generated included cancer cells to his study and used a machine called colloidal silver generator that produces positively charged micro-amp currents of electricity to change cancer cells to healthy new stem cells that would turn into cells of different types.
Meaning, if lung cells are needed, new lung cells will be produced and if new blood cells are needed, they would become blood cells and so on. Dr. Becker said that the whole subject needs to be studied and investigated more thoroughly.
