“Ban All Colloidal Silver Products, or Regulate Them as Drugs,” says Friends of the Earth

(Another attempt to ban a product not controlled by Big Pharma)

Report by FoE Australia and FoE United States. Any mention of “FoE” or Friends of the Earth in this report refers to the above groups and not to FoE International.

"Friends of the Earth calls for a immediate moratorium on the commercial release of products that contain manufactured nanosilver until nanotechnology-specific regulation is introduced to protect the public, workers and the environment from their risks, and until the public is involved in decision making." (p2)

"We believe that all over-the-counter colloidal silver products should be immediately withdrawn from the market and their sale should be banned (unless approved as a drug by the appropriate regulatory agency)." (p13)


(My respect for environmental groups like FOE has dwindled when they jump on a bandwagon such as this, or the dubious claims of man-made Global Warming!)
