'Two thousand years ago, the Greeks and Romans used silver containers to hold and protect perishable liquids against harmful organisms. Silver containers were used until the invention of refrigeration to protect food liquids — such as milk — from spoiling.
Using silver in the medical setting came into practice about one hundred and fifty years ago as a means to protect against infection. It remained popular against harmful organisms until the advent of antibiotics.
While modern Western medicine may not currently promote silver to fight harmful organisms, modern opinion still doesn’t change the fact that silver works as a powerful bacteria fighter.'
