Backlash Stan Grant

Extraordinary negative and callous statements regarding Stan Grant in the recent edition’s Backlash section. Grant was a terrible host?...

In response to R Johnson’s letter regarding the Barmah Forest virus he unfortunately succumbed to, I would like to offer a completely unprofessional backyard remedy to this and many more ailments so many needlessly suffer from.

Simply by taking a 12-volt transformer and splitting the wires, wrapping each end to a simple piece of pure silver wire, and placing these silver electrodes into a glass container of distilled water, one can easily make a solution, or colloid, of such a powerful medicine that will destroy all single-celled organisms within six minutes of contact.

Of course, this colloidal silver may also be purchased at natural healing supplies stores. You won’t find your doctor recommending such a genuinely useful product, as a mere one litre of this excellent solution will set you back no more than a single consultation fee, yet may be used effectively for dozens of treatments for all sorts of ailments including infection, coughs and colds, warts, chemtrail symptoms and more.

Remember, viruses and bacteria are simple, single-celled organisms, and trace amounts of silver are not at all harmful to the human body. In fact, the term ‘blue-bloods’ refers to the fact that rich people of yore would eat with silver utensils and thus reduce the risk of illness. I would, however, suggest that one use a concentrated pro-bacterial product to assist the digestive process, just as one normally would after a course of less-effective antibiotics.

At the very least, while it may still be swimming in the murky realms of pseudo-science, know that colloidal silver can do no harm, which is more than most people could say about most modern medical ‘treatments’.
