Gold Investments Market Update - as Cool as Silver

Abstract:
A recent report by a British scientist, Valerie Edward Jones, says the use of silver in healthcare and hygiene is increasing, frequently because of a shortage of new antibiotics. The review found advances in technology, particularly nanotechnology, are allowing scientists to increasingly apply silver's benefits in more areas. "In simple terms, silver ions are highly effective and eliminate bacteria rapidly," said Edwards-Jones. She also said that for the first time ever in Europe, silver is being used in a new deodorant. The silver ions neutralise the bacteria that cause body odor, stopping it before it begins.
