The Other Silver War: Is Silver Being Used to Taint the Food Supply?
The war on silver which has gotten its due attention has been the manipulation of the price of silver via paper exchanges to which the physical metal is tied. Major banks such as JP Morgan and HSBC have been the focus of these complaints. But, there is a newer war in which silver is an agent instead of an object, and it is being led perhaps by Big Agriculture through the food supply: it is the other silver war. Increasingly found in agriculture under the guise of antimicrobial and insecticidal properties, engineered nanomaterials such as silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) are being used to treat agricultural goods, thereby risking public health and the environment. For months and years scientific reports have been covering the public health risk posed by silver products, failing to pinpoint where the dangerous levels of silver were coming from, but now it has come out that silver is being found in dangerous concentrations for a particular reason: It is being actively added to the food supply.
The study in particular of which we speak focused on Pears. The contamination of Ag NPs in pears was detected and quantified via numerous methods, including transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersives spectrometer (EDS) and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES). Pear samples were treated with two different sizes (20 and 70nm in diameter) of Ag NPs and stored for different periods of times.
Residual AG NP’s of both 20 and 70nm were still detected in samples after 4-day treatment followed by rinsing with water. It was revealed that the 20nm AG Nps penetrate the pear skin and pulp after 4-day treatment. Numerous tests were enlisted and they all came up with the same data, thus cementing the theory that Big Agriculture is treating food supplies with nano-silver.
According to the government’s own report:
In long-term oral studies with experimental animals, silver compounds have produced slight thickening
of the basement membranes of the renal glomeruli, growth depression, shortened lifespan, and granular silvercontaining deposits in skin, eyes, and internal organs (Matuk et al., 1981; Olcott, 1948, 1950). Hypoactivity
was seen in rats subchronically exposed to silver nitrate in drinking water (Rungby and Danscher, 1984).
That signals that silver could be used for the same reasons fluoride, GMOs and other things theorized to be used in the nations’s food supply for population control.
