In a groundbreaking study, the Journal of Nanotechnology has published a study that found silver nanoparticles kills HIV-1 and is likely to kill virtually any other virus. The study, which was conducted by the University of Texas and Mexico University, is the first medical study to ever explore the benefits of silver nanoparticles, according to Physorg.
During the study, researchers used three different methods of limiting the size of the silver nanoparticles by using capping agents. The capping agents were foamy carbon, poly (PVP), and bovine serum albumin (BSA). The particles ranged in size from 1 to 10 nanometers depending on the method of capping. After incubating the HIV-1 virus at 37 C, the silver particles killed 100% of the virus within 3 hours for all three methods. The scientists believe that the silver particles bonded through glycoprotein knobs on the virus with spacing of about 22 nanometers in length.

Can Silver kill bacteria? particularly for those who are allergic to antibiotics?

The simple answer is yes! There is plenty of evidence you can look at, for example http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23255416, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22324439, and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21812950

What's the difference in 10 ppm versus 15 ppm?

There isn't a great deal of difference, just slightly more concentrated Dorothy.

My mom’s HIV positive. Are you doing patient testing yet?
