In the first-ever study of metal nanoparticles' interaction with HIV-1, silver nanoparticles of sizes 1-10nm attached to HIV-1 and prevented the virus from bonding to host cells. The study, published in the Journal of Nanotechnology, was a joint project between the University of Texas, Austin and Mexico Univeristy, Nuevo Leon.
While further research is needed, researchers are optimistic that nanological silver may be the silver bullet to kill viruses. The researchers in the study said that they had already begin experiments using silver nanoparticles to kill what is known as the super bug (Methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus). Already used as a topical antibiotic in the medical industry, silver may now come under consideration as an alternative to drugs when it comes to fighting previously untreatable viruses such as the Tamiflu resistant avian flu

When they say 'nano silver' do they literally just mean pure silver dissassociated in water as the above poster said?
I see no reason why it's called nano silver?!?

This is completely ridiculous.
I think it's easier to make your own than to buy some from somewhere though, I just hope this doesn't turn into another reefer madness, where people will just associate a harmless/beneficial substance with evil without looking into it.
All you need is two small pieces of .999 silver, some distilled water, and a power cable/converter from a printer. Takes about thirty minutes to get an entire jarful of the stuff.
Please explain the power cable / converter, how do you make your own? Thanks, I would love to make my own.
