Silver Compounds to Battle Cancer?



February 07, 2012 – Comments (10)

We all know cancer is a formidable foe, and it is one that has impacted my own family as well. I was not aware that conventional chemotherapy treatments contained platinum, nor that the metal was a major component of the treatment's toxicity to healthy cells. Primarily as a member of our species, and secondarily as a silver investor, I am hopeful that silver will ineed prove as beneficial to cancer treatment as many seem to anticipate. And as a corrollary, since silver is so much cheaper than platinum, perhaps this could ease some of the financial burden associated with the battling of this disease.

lab tests have shown that it is as effective as the leading chemotherapy drug - and may have fewer side-effects.

Results from the study at the University of Leeds, published in Dalton Transactions, show that particular silver compounds are as toxic to cancer cells as the platinum-based drug Cisplatin, which is widely used to treat a range of cancers.

A major barrier to the continued development of these compounds is a lack of understanding of how they work. Over the next 12 months, research will focus on investigating how the compounds damage cancerous cells and what effects they have on healthy cells. This will establish whether these silver complexes are in fact less toxic to ordinary human tissue, and will help to design and develop the next-generation of chemotherapy drugs. This work is been carried out in collaboration with Dr. Roger Phillips at the University of Bradford and is funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research.

Very interesting. I've heard that silver has antiseptic properties, but if it could fight cancer and be more gentle on good cells that would be great . I'm all for better cures!

This is ouitstanding news. I wonder how much difference there would be in maufacturing costs of the drug by switching to silver that is 50 times less expensive than platinum.

Hey Fools ... I have a question for you.

Which gold or silver producers come to your mind as having the best websites?

Any websites that have made you wonder why they can't all be as good.... i.e. as effective at telling a compelling story that leaves you excited about the company's future?

Or maybe one website comes to mind as being so thoughtfully constructed and organized that it left you impressed by the caliber of management separately from the content of the company's story?

I spend my every waking hour scouring websites of miners, and I have a few in mind that I think stand out for their quality. But I'm curious to know which sites have made a memorable impression upon you as an effective marketing tool that either influenced your decision to invest or reassured you after the fact.

Thanks fore sharing your thoughts on this.

Would be great, but not necessarily less costly (and potentially even more expensive on a per-dose basis).  What the article doesn't discuss is the complexity (potentially) of the ligands attached to the silver and their ease of manufacture - a multi-step synthesis there could easily outweigh the cost of platinum (~1g/year for the average Cisplatin dosing regime).  Also, due to the heightened safety potential of these silver drugs they are likely to be dosed at a higher level, again further mitigating any savings to the consumer.

Now don't get me wrong - any advancement in the treatement of cancer, regardless of cost, is a great thing and it is indeed exciting news.  But I don't think this is a bullish (or bearish) case for silver itself (other than the short-term buzz generated).

Re: #3

Impact Silver's site ( ) strikes the best balance, in my opinion, beween navigatablility and esthetics.

We use colloidal silver (Sovereign brand) in our family whenever one of us is sick w/ typical flus or colds & always found it great either as a preventive measure or to shorten the duration of the illness.  For those unfamiliar w/ it, colloidal silver is simply a silver solution where the particles of silver are infinitesimally small.  Also used it in foreign parts to ward off food poisoning & parasites.  Supposedly it's a very good anti-parasitic.  I'm really pleased to hear it's possibly good to fight cancer, who wouldn't be, but not really that surprised because of our own well-proven experience w/ it's efficacy.  I highly recommend it to any parents out there as a harmless, non-drug treatment for general health.

My sister was diagnosed with ovarian cancer August of 2011.  I was in the Dominican Republic doing stem cells with our son for autism.  When I came home she was scheduled to have a complete hysterectomy the next morning at 6 am, I was too late to stop it.  They removed a 32 lb tumor that once was her ovary and they also removed the fatty tissue that sits below (or above can’t remember) the stomach and part of her kidneys and scraped cancer off her diagphram.  At least this is what they told us.  She was extremely sick and had complications with blood clots.  She ended back in the hospital 2 more times.  The last time the doctor told me some people just don’t recover as he had given up on her.  I found a doctor at the hospital that helped me keep her alive by giving her blood and all kinds of other nutrients.  He warned me that in three days she could be back the way she was which was very near death. 

I had contacted Dr. Pressman in Canada, he is an ozone doctor.  Extremely smart!  He told me about silver nano particles and gave me the website  We ordered some and gave them to her.  To back track these are silver in water but not colloidal, they are smaller, infact so small they cannot be seen with a regular microscope.  They are said to work like a gas and because of their size they can get into every cell in your body but they leave your body in 48 hours.   

Back to my sister, her urine was brown and cloudy, she was completely out of it.  Within in 3 days of taking the silver nanos her urine cleared up and she was back with us!  She is now doing great! 

Now I know what you are thinking, God, miracle, I’m exaggerating, etc. but I have a 13 year old chocolate lab who had a large tumor on her leg, we were told she had cancer and was too old to operate.  I gave her the silver nanos and she stopped eating and drinking for 2 days and on the third day the tumor opened up, fell off and now she is running around like a pup again.  She also had three small tumors on her stomach that just disappeared.   

So it works!  

 I am looking into  as it is a lot less expensive but I have no one or animals with cancer to try it on.  We have purchased this for our entire family and I have taken some of this and the other.  I feel no different but I don’t believe I am sick.  We do hyperbaric oxygen treatment with our son and cancer cannot grow in a high oxygen environment, so I am pretty sure we all don’t have cancer.

Just to let you know her cancer markers are down to 20, anything below 35 is considered not cancer!

There's nothing worse than a doctor who gives up. Great job for NOT giving up, and fighting all the way. 

Our dog had a tumor on her leg recently, and we went the prescribed route of having it surgically removed.  If it ever were to recur, we're discussing what we would do, and colloidal silver is on the table.

You continue to inspire me. I wish you and your family all the best!

Colloidal silver is not the same thing as the particles are too big to reach most places in the body. Nano silver particles are .0008 nm in size, this is the important difference.  Sleeping on your article made me realize that Big Pharm can't ignore silver anymore as word is getting out so they are jumping on the band wagon.  They will charge 1,000's of dollars for what can be made for pennies.  Sad world we live in as some will die needlessly because of the almighty dollar! 

 We are trying to learn how to make silver nano's.  There is no patent on it but no one will share their secrets.  If I ever find out I will tell the world as this information belongs to everyone!
