Silver is a Toxic Threat to the Environment & Could Lead to Ecosystem Collapse
Silver is threatening the planet like gay marriage is threatening the species. No, not because of Gresham’s Law leading individuals towards silver and the rest of the precious metals complex, and thus away from the Federal Reserve Note, but instead due to the fact that it is an environmental toxin that is murdering off fish, children and polluting our water supply. Forget fluoride, it is silver that will take you out.
Demand for silver is taking on historical new proportions as demand for tangible assets from an informed public and technological innovation changes the supply-and-demand dynamics, while a new ravenous environmentalism is assuming anti-precious metals overtones proclaiming that silver is toxic to all living cells and other hyperbole. Although silver is an element, the logic contends, it is simultaneously an environmental threat, and increased widespread use of silver could lead to a compromised environment.
The real question, however, is as such: is it the environment that is compromised or the Silver Users who transnational industrial and financial enterprises depend on a suppression of silver.
Silver is used today in a panoply of devices from grafts, implanted heart valves, bone cement to soaps and disinfectants while, purportedly, is related to the toxic heavy metals mercury and lead; chokes fish to death; disturbs bacterial activity when cleaning sewage, and other proclamations.
Silver, according to this unique brand of Keynesian environmentalists, could bring about a new, silver plague. According to this school of thought, “a wide and uncontrolled use of silver products” will lead to “not only silver-resistant but also antibiotic-and biocide-resistant bacteria.” If we allow silver to do this, all good bacteria will be killed and the “ecosystem will collapse.”
And due to massive growth in silver dependent sectors, this ecosystem collapse is a real threat. In Europe, for example, over its first five years, the silver-based wound dressing market grew from zero to 200 million Euros in Europe, with an estimated yearly growth of the ‘anti-bacterial market’ is 40% for things like wound care and foreign bodies.
Public health officials and regulators are crying for increased regulation and a general crackdown on the use of silver in the environment. Despite that “silver is one of the basic elements that make up our planet” it is a threat to the ecosystem. This is the sort of stranger than fiction logic that used to be reserved for Monty Python films back when humans had the decency to leave the gray absurdity of those films in the films themselves. Now, life imitates Monty Python.
It is extremely important that you remain aware that silver does not break down, as it is an element. It will remain in the ecosystem until it is again removed by humans. You will most likely be exposed every single day to the toxic element of silver, mainly in food and drinking water and air. The safety of the Workers of the World is further compromised by silver in the workplace.
But, despite the warnings from busybodies in bureaucracies, silver levels of less than 0.000001 mg silver per cubic meter of air (mg/m3), 0.2-2.0 parts silver per billion parts water (ppb) in surface waters, such as lakes and rivers, and .20-.30 parts silver per million parts soil (ppm) in soils are found at naturally occurring sources. Drinking water supplies in the US have been found to contain silver levels up to 80 ppb, and surveys show that one-tenth to one third of samples taken from drinking water supplies (both groundwater and surface water) have silver at levels more than 30 ppb.
But, still other tests refute the claim that silver is a threat to the stability of the ecosystem. Silver is often found not to induce genotoxicity in a bacterial. Silver uses are increasing, and the pressure put on the silver supply is leading to a complete transformation of the supply-and-demand dynamics of the silver market. For more than a century, concern about intense demand for silver in nations like India have led to industrialists to seek out methods of relinquishing that silver back to the “free market” so that they can then buy it up for their own hoards.
But the litany of new uses for silver have caused to a diversification of the demand for the product. To concentrate and consolidate the market, so as to obviate a drying up of supply, becomes a bigger task amid decentralization. That’s why silver is all of the sudden so toxic. It is compromising the inner-workings of the hijacked global economy. The peasants are waking up to a way in which they themselves can become their own businesses and enjoy the benefits of sophisticated financial planning.
