Even though “awakened” people are super excited right now about acquiring physical silver as a means to fight against currency debasement and inflation, most people don’t yet realize the full potential of silver as a source of concentrated medicine that can be used in almost any survival situation.

Like the Magi, carrying myrrh, frankincense, and gold, researchers from the University of Leicester have, for the first time, demonstrated the potential of treating ovarian cancer using the Christmas gift frankincense.
The origins of frankincense can be traced to the Arabian Peninsula. According to Herodotus Continue reading
Did You Know…
… that a simple exercise used by Olympic athletes can fend off aging, re-energize your whole body, and may even prevent cancer?
Rebounding is a simple exercise with exceptional overall health benefits that go far beyond fitness. The practice of rebounding couldn’t be easier: it requires as little as 5 minutes a day of bouncing lightly or jumping on a trampoline (usually a high-quality mini trampoline used at home).
Yet, despite its simplicity, the effects of rebounding are so astonishing that it has earned Continue reading
The never-ending advice to cut back on salt fails to give the whole story on this misunderstood substance. In fact, if you don’t get enough of the right kind of salt, you may be sowing the seeds of your own health destruction. Continue reading
“The sites are 3500 km apart, in southern New South Wales and northern Queensland, so when we found the same organism on grains from both sites we thought we were onto something,” he said.
“It made us wonder why these organisms live in this particular environment. The results of this study point to their involvement in the active detoxification of Au complexes leading to formation of gold biominerals,” he added.
The experiments showed that C. metallidurans rapidly accumulates toxic gold complexes from a solution prepared in the lab.
This process promotes gold toxicity, which pushes the bacterium to induce oxidative stress and metal resistance clusters as well as an as yet uncharacterized Au-specific gene cluster in order to defend its cellular integrity.
This leads to active biochemically-mediated reduction of gold complexes to nano-particulate, metallic gold, which may contribute to the growth of gold nuggets.
By determining what elements there are, scientists can see where the gold is located in relation to the cells.
For this study, scientists combined synchrotron techniques at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and the Advanced Photon Source (APS) and molecular microbial techniques to understand the biomineralisation in bacteria.
It is the first time that these techniques have been used in the same study, so
This is the first direct evidence that bacteria are actively involved in the cycling of rare and precious metals, such as gold.
These results open the doors to the production of biosensors.
“The discovery of an Au-specific operon means that we can now start to develop gold-specific biosensors, which will help mineral explorers to find new gold deposits,” said Reith.
