They thrived.

But copper is expensive and getting rare. Plastics are cheaper and easier to shape and manufacture.

Still, I insist on copper pipes in my plumbing system. For that very reason.
plus hard plastic leaches cancer-causing chemicals when frozen or heated.

No nurse in their right mind would have told you that.

Ok look, that was a bit over the top.
My 1st reaction is to say
that if they did make the new vaccine from dog turds most people would take it without question. and be angry at those that questioned it.

but look, the point i made was a good one it's been long established that vitamins C and D have outstanding immune system benefits.
And Silver and Copper also have a long stand general rep for the same.
Each with little to ZERO side effects if taken as recommend.

the copper story is ok for after the pandemic has subsided but we shouldn't take our eyes off the goal here. hand washing 6 minutes and stay away from others. clean counters w alcohol or bleach and water. get updates then watch a movie or turn the tv off. better to get updates from the cdc or wh websites.
Yes Lime (vitamin C) cures and prevents scurvy and vitamin D cures Rickets. Plus both positively effect a broad range of health issues.
As far a polio goes you're right vitamins didn't or doesn't cure it,... however there have been studies showing that if pregnant mothers and the infants are given vitamin A that they do have increased antibodies to the polio virus.
Just saying.
But i'm not sure why you'd want to be so dismissive of vitamins even as an adjunct to whatever the CDC "authorities" will eventually be recommending.
Are people allowed to think and research for themselves what they want to take do to improve their health Salt? or should we all just wait for the State to tell us all what to do then trust and obey like children?

ok, I did just little bit of -google/startpage-- research on Silver looking for mainstream studies. the 1st things that come up are a lot of articles that warn about people turning Blue from using it to much. But apparently with no other negative side effect. EXCEPT FOR one other warning i read which was for pregnant mothers NOT to take it becasue it could cause deformities. It didn't point to any studies to that effect and i only saw it on one site but it's a warning to take seriously.
Beyond that there were a bunch of general articles referencing this or that medical authority/group all saying something like "there are no studies that show silver or colloidal silver has any effect on diseases."
Ok, well, that sounds pretty definitive. If i wasn't a bit of a contrarian I'd probably leave it at that, but I decided to look up studies and silver and 'lo and behold' i found a couple... AFTER wading though MORE articles that said 'there are no studies'.

So, from my very brief search it seems that silver does has some effect on at least some bacteria. The link below is a study testing silver against staph infections which it is shown to be very effect. So effect that apparently it's become more broadly used as a topical treatment and even infused into some medical bandaid products. As well being used in some sterilization practices becasue of the rise of antibiotic resistance.
Anyway, If i'm reading the study correctly it says that silver effects the bacteria in 3 different ways.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2292600/

Quote:
...To date, there are three known mechanisms by which silver acts on microbes. Firstly, silver cations can form pores and puncture the bacterial cell wall by reacting with the peptidoglycan component [4]. Secondly, silver ions can enter into the bacterial cell, both inhibiting cellular respiration and disrupting metabolic pathways resulting in generation of reactive oxygen species [5]. Lastly, once in the cell silver can also disrupt DNA and its replication cycle [6] (Figure 1). A recently published review includes more details about the bactericidal mechanisms of silver, along with methods of silver nanoparticle preparation [7]. Throughout history, silver has consistently been used to restrict the spread of human disease by incorporation into articles used in daily life. The earliest recorded use of silver for therapeutic purposes dates back to the Han Dynasty in China circa. 1500 B.C.E [8]. ...
As far as more info on internal uses go I didn't take anymore time to look anything up, so the only things that I'm aware of, at this point, are anecdotal and historical.
So I, for one, am open to the idea that silver could ...possibly.. maybe.. have some good effect against some bugs. And it won't hurt.
Which, again, is more than i can say for any new vaccine or 'Flu'Shot type treatment.
Look, I'm not dismissing any new vaccine/'Flu'shot Salt, I'm just putting it in context.
Hand washing etc are also LONG known preventatives too, and I am WELL on board with that program.
But it seems to me we shouldn't be narrowly focused on a miracle vaccine if others options are potentially helpful as well.
Hopefully we agree on that much.

FYI folks, cast iron has a similar effect.

If you are so opposed to posting anything meaningful, please just stay away. Your inane ramblings prove nothing other than your ignorance.

Do you have any links that attempt to prove such?

You do realize that drinking water on sailing ships were held in cast iron tanks? Look for the reason.

some like to fvck with the public at such times or throw their theories out there when we need to listen to the experts.
The source matters, Vice does its research and I would consider a solid source for information. This isn't some word of mouth stuf where some person told me this and its believable because they do that. Its fact checked from multiple accredited resources, and they point out the gary matter of the subject.

How about reading the article before posting about it. There is some science behind the allegation that copper and copper alloys destroy bacteria, include the Wuhan or Chinese Virus.

Don't have to read the article. It has been long known that copper, silver, gold and cast iron all have some antibiotic qualities. The fact you just bothered to learn it means little or nothing.
