Silver ColloidsFake research site

The site www.silver-colloids.com, owned and operated by www.colloidalsciencelab.com, does 'research' on products that claim to contain colloidal silver. The product that does best in all of their 'studies' is a product called MesoSilver, sold by www.purestcolloids.com, who also sell many other colloidal 'Meso' products. It turns out that all three websites reside on the same segment of IP addresses, are registered with the same private registrar, use the same host and nameservers, have the same trace route, and most likely are on the exact same server. Evidence points to the fact that these sites are run by the same company, and the 'Meso' products are probably as useless as all the other silver products on the market.

I just hate fake research sites on the internet built for the sole purpose of scamming people into buying a product.

    I had pretty much the same experience with silver-colloids as Brian, (above). After discovering the connection, I wrote to Mr. Key, owner of all three sites. He wrote back to say that his name was in the "about" section for each site and that ought to be enough of a disclaimer. I replied that he should put a prominent disclaimer on the "research" site but he declined.

    It's a shame because the information on the silver-colloids site may be valid but there's no way to tell because of the appearance of conflict of interests.

    I personally and several close friends have used colloidal silver over the years and it has also been tested on various groups of sick people including e.g. malaria and many other infectious diseases with great success...all this information is out there if any one wants to check it out...

    It does not matter to me if the independence of the research is questionable we all need funding somehow as long as the test results are not fraudulent and unless fraud in this manner has clearly been established then it is destructive to make comments like it is fraud and all colloidal sliver product are worthless, it makes me wonder if the writer of such reports is themselves acting in a fraudulent manner and is actually working for a pharmaceutical company, who are all really sick and worried about people actually getting well on products they cannot make money out of themselves...after all colloidal silver can be easily made at home for pence per pint, and the users know how effective it is !!
