A great deal of misinformation has been released from the media claiming that nano-silver products have not been tested for safety, and that it is unknown what effects the products may have on people or the environment. It has also been stated that these silver products can cause heavy-metal poisoning. Little, if any, of this attack on nano-silver has validity, and more importantly it is the work of people or special interest groups that have something else to gain by limiting a persons free right to have and use safe silver products. American Biotech Labs has spent millions of dollars on testing the safety and efficacy of nano-silver technology products.
American Biotech Labs already has been awarded a registration for two of their ASAP nano-silver products from the EPA, after having completed thousands of antimicrobial tests meeting strict EPA guidelines. Those products have 10-minute-kill-time claims for both home and hospital disinfection against deadly pathogens like staph, yeast, and black mold, etc. The products have also been approved for disinfecting dental water lines used to spray into human mouths, as well as heating and ventilation systems for home and industrial use.
Nano-Silver Safe For The Home And The Environment
Each EPA approved product is required to have safety information, and according to that information a toxic spill or EPA reportable spill amount is required to be printed in the product MSDS sheet (Material Safety Data Sheet). For example, a chlorine-type cleaning product (found for open purchase on store shelves right now) has a toxic spill rating of about three gallons, meaning that a spill of three gallons or more must be reported to the EPA and handled by HAZMAT authorities.
In comparison, American Biotech Labs’ 32 ppm nano-silver product has a toxic spill rating of 12,500,000 gallons. An oil tanker will hold about a million gallons, which means that 12.5 oil tankers full of the ASAP nano silver disinfectant would have to spill their entire loads of the product together to be deemed a toxic event to the environment. The management of American Biotech Labs believes that there is no tank or vat large enough in the entire world that could hold and subsequently spill enough of the ASAP disinfectant product to actually be reportable as a toxic spill to the environment. In other words, American Biotech Labs’ nano-silver disinfectant product is perhaps the safest disinfectant product, for environmental reasons, ever approved to kill bacteria, mold, yeast and other pathogens.
Nano-Silver Tested For Cyto-toxicity (Will It Harm Human Cells?)
A number of independent cyto-toxicity tests have been completed on American Biotech Labs’ nano-silver products. At both 10 and 22 ppm, the products were found to do no damage at all to either human or monkey cells, meaning that they were found completely non-cyto-toxic. ASAP nano-silver gel products were tested for cyto-toxicity at both 24 and 32 ppm by an independent FDA/EPA approved lab. According to FDA guidelines, the cyto-toxicity is reported on a scale of 1-4 (4 being highly cyto-toxic and 1 being very safe for use). Both the 24 and 32ppm ASAP nano-silver products were deemed in the testing to be a level 1, in other words having little or no negative effect on the skin.
