Fun Fact Friday! Fact 18

 Fun Fact Friday:

Did you know that silver contains anti-bacterial properties and researchers have found that silver can be used as a biocide. For example, burn units in hospitals use bandages that release silver ions that help with healing and reduce the need for frequent dressing changes. Also, small concentrations of silver or silver salts can be used to kill bacteria by chemically affecting the cell membranes, causing them to break down. One of the most interesting benefits of using silver as a biocide is that bacteria do not develop resistance to silver, as they do to many antibiotics. Did you take your prescription of silver today?
