There appear to be many claims that colliodal silver is beneficial when either 
applied topically or consumed.  Claims include preventing bacteria and fungus 
from growing or simply killing same.  Also, that many years ago silver was used 
to preserve or kill microbes in milk and water. My general tendency is to 
question the motivation of the individuals promotting these ideas and products, 
and wonder if these claims are correct or maybe some conclussions are being 
derived incorrectly. 

Thank You
