Subject: Re: Silver (last one, I promise)
<Claims *require proof*, and until someone does a real clinical study
of the medicinal properties of elemental silver the claims of its
effectiveness should be viewed with suspicion.
YAH; STRONGLY AGREE after personally having spent $1,000's & $1,000's
on assorted untested treatments trying to rid symptoms of Lyme's
Disease (not the fuzzies)
<If there were anything to the claims of silver's effectiveness, I
would expect one of the major pharmaceutical firms to jump on it.
I strongly disagree; Pharmaceuticals won't spend a dime unless they
know they can make big bucks on patented recipes & there are lots of
common chemicals, herbs, etc. which could be very effective but not
tested for taht reason!
<OK, enough on this topic. I'm going to play with my ferrets!
