RE: You say you are not a chemist. Neither are you a biologist and neither apparently do you have any experience with, or knowledge of, how Colloidal Silver works inside the body.
A. I'd first question who has knowledge of how Colloidal Silver works inside the body, and what studies we could reference on this.
RE: Instead, ionic solutions which are sold commercially or made at home have silver particles which typically range in size from 15 nanometers and up.
A. While I believe that compounds such as silver oxides could easily measure or exceed 15nm, it remains this would not encompass the properties that would qualify the ionic silver nomenclature - such as; when silver oxides enter into solubility, or the ions generated at the anode either; pair-up, or bond with other molecules in solubility. And so, I'm thinking you're going to have to choose whether or not you accept these solutions to be ionic so-as to avoid a double standard. ie, based on what you've written, it would appear that you're attempting to argue both sides. By either presenting criticisms against ionic solutions on the one hand, while ignoring the very same properties to support your own conclusions or interests(see).
In short, if a solution is ionic, then it must therefore contain silver ions in solubility. Likewise, if it contains soluble ions, then these must therefore meet the qualifications or properties to prove true. Otherwise, it would not be ionic.
RE: Given your evident regard for degrees, perhaps you might appreciate the fact that the owner of Purest Colloids, which makes the true Colloidal Silver product Mesosilver, has a PhD from MIT and worked for NASA.
A. I regret to tell you, that this particular statement seems rather disingenuous with respect to your opening criticism. As you now appear to be referencing someone who is; not a chemist, neither a biologist or even having any experience with, or knowledge of, how Colloidal Silver works inside the body(see).
RE: ...one would surely think he would have known better than to have spent half a million dollars on equipment to make a solution that was over 85% true Colloidal Silver
A. I'm not sure how or why you'd feel how large sums of money could help your case. Though I'd remind you that many of the greatest discoveries in medicine were not backed by millions of dollars worth of equipment. And so I just don't think these types of arguments prove anything beyond the fact that the commercial production of Colloidal Silver products can be very expensive, and that the profits from such a business can be very lucrative.
