This war against germs has a silver lining

Abstract:
About three years ago, consumer products incorporating silver as an antimicrobial ingredient -- some made using nanotechnology to bond materials at a molecular level -- took off in Asia. Now some observers believe they are poised to become big in the U.S. Specialty retailer Sharper Image recently introduced a line of plastic food containers infused with silver nanoparticles that are intended to keep food fresher.
