Silver Series - Medical and Health Applications

Silver’s anti bacterial qualities make it ideal for:

  • Burn treatments and dressings for wounds and cuts.

  • Anti-bacterial pharmaceuticals.

  • Rubber liners in refrigerators and clothes driers to fight bacteria.

  • Wealthy, ancient Greeks and Romans stored their wine and oil in silver jugs because both lasted longer when stored in this manner.

  • In the Middle Ages, silverware and other eating utensils were introduced as people found those who ate with them did not get sick as often as those who did not.
