ARTICLE BY RUSTUM ROY ET. AL.
ALPINE, UT, April 27 /CNW/ - American Biotech Labs (ABL), a private
company (Clifton Mining Company owns about 23% of ABL) announces that a new
peer review paper has just been released. Dr. Rustum Roy, one of the most
pre-eminent materials scientist in the world, has just co-authored an
important paper. "Ultradilute Ag-Aquasols with extraordinary bactericidal
properties: role of the system Ag-O-H(2)O" in Materials Research Innovations,
vol. 11, no. 1, (2007) pages 3-18. The focus of much of the paper is the
American Biotech Labs(R) ASAP silver aquasol products. The authors note
critical properties of this unique, patented silver aquasol technology.
The first line of the paper states:
"We first establish the literature on the use of ultradilute aquasols as
extraordinary, powerful, bactericidal inorganic agents equal to most
commercial antibiotics. These findings provide the rationale for a major role
for inorganic materials scientists to contribute the insights unique to their
field for new, safer health vectors."
Pointing to antimicrobial studies performed on American Biotech Labs(R)
products the paper states:
"Table I shows a comparison of the MIC (minimum inhibitory concentration
of (tilde)1 at.-ppm silver sol in pure water, with the most prominent
antibiotics used world wide, as fully established in both in vitro and in vivo
trials.(10) Not only is this radically different antibiotic material more or
less equal to the traditional biochemical antibiotics, it has the unique
advantage that bacteria do not mutate to destroy its activity. Moreover, when
used alongside a traditional antibiotic, as shown in Table 2, the silver
aquasol has a synergistic effect, thereby extending the life of the efficacy
of several antibiotics tenfold(11)..."
On the safety of eating silver as a metal the paper states:
"A recent paper by Das and Khanna(1) provides the remarkable datum that
some 275,000 kg. (605,000 pounds) of edible metallic silver foil are consumed
every year (in food) in India. No known adverse health effects have ever been
recorded. This epidemiological evidence that silver as a metal is not toxic in
any way needs no comment..."
The paper separates American Biotech Labs(R) products from other silver
products by identifying them as silver aquasols stating:
"Our first contribution in this direction is a thorough review and new
analysis of the structure of liquid water(6). The study is the key starting
point because of the deluge of products loosely lumped under the term 'silver
colloids' now appearing in the U.S.A. supplements market and targeting many of
the very same, above-mentioned applications. Many of these products claim to
be dispersions of metallic particles in nearly pure water. Some of the metals
are linked to proteins and other organic additives... Some contain 'organic
silver' - presumably metal-organic silver compounds, and some contain 'ionic'
silver, possibly in true solution... We confine ourselves only to silver
aquasols, i.e. suspensions of nominally metallic silver particles in
essentially pure water..."
In the Conclusions section of the paper it states:
1. "The very potent biologically active silver aquasols contained,
typically, the amounts of silver claimed by the manufacturer,
typically from 10-30 ppm by weight of Ag, The silver was very
pure as was the water." In other words, the "potent" ABL silver
products were very clean, metallic not ionic, and contained the
right amounts of silver.
We are making the entire paper accessible to readers on the Clifton
website at www.cliftonmining.com. If you will click on the American Biotech
Labs button on Clifton's main page, four choices will appear, scroll down to
the last one called "Dr. Roy Paper". The entire peer review paper will appear.
The American Biotech Labs(R) products can be found at better health food
stores nation wide (ie. GNC Stores etc.) under both the Silver Biotics(R) and
ASAP Solution(R) labels.
