Colloidal silver was already proven to be effective against Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), a deadly pathogen that is resistant to antibiotics. This microbe contaminates meats such as poultry, beef, and pork.
Almost 6% of beef, 14% of pork chops, and 1% of poultry were discovered to have MRSA and this situation made the US decide to restrict imports and chose another nation to purchase meat products.
With the help of colloidal silver, MRSA pathogen is effectively decimated. People who already use colloidal silver generator have the advantage of keeping their family protected and safe from food contamination.
In Israel, researchers discovered a new way of applying colloidal silver to meat products. They developed a method of coating butcher paper with colloidal silver particles to wiped away harmful pathogens from all kinds of meat. Food-borne pathogens such as E. coli and MRSA will not be able to replicate themselves when the colloidal silver impregnated paper wraps the whole meat.
Colloidal silver showed remarkably actual evidences of fighting against any type of dangerous microbes. Fabrics, metal, and plastics impregnated with colloidal silver were found out to have biocidal properties without damaging the material.
Using ultrasonic radiation, the nanoparticles of colloidal silver penetrated the surface of the paper and demonstrated an effect of killing bacteria such as MRSA and E. coli and preventing them from replicating and spreading inside the meat.
The paper is also said to have the potential of being a packing material in keeping the products last longer. This invention made by the researchers in Israel is simple yet powerful in solving the growing problem about food contamination in the US.
Protecting foods by wrapping them to silver coated paper is quite helpful in the part of the US government since they can already continue exporting billions of dollars for food supply without worrying of these food-borne pathogens. This solution is cheaper than irradiating fresh foods in order to decimate the bacteria.
In the process of ultrasonication, where colloidal silver particles are applied in a paper, is not time consuming since it only requires one method. It was reported to be effective and produce a long lasting coating.
When the meats are already wrapped inside the “killer paper”, bacteria such as E. coli and MRSA are killed within 3 hours. Meanwhile, spraying foods with colloidal silver is also applicable and this method directly destroys the dangerous microbes before spreading and harming your family.
