Well I was in the hospital all day yesterday forced into reading a ton of different things, and I came across a small add promoting a certain refrigerator brand that I will leave out here today, but it indeed was claiming to have come up with a new refrigerator that actually is effective at killing Bacteria growth with something called there "Nano SilverSeal" Technology. It said that, said named brand, "Nano SilverSeal" technology reduces different bacteria. Some of which include E. coli, Staphylococci, when they come in contact with the Nano Silver seal coating which is present on this said new refrigerator. It has a copyright from the company...


I was wondering if this indeed works,  how does it work, as I don't understand how a simple seal on a refrigerator can prevent this...

Does someone have any further knowledge of this Technology?

The wonders of new technology. Silver has been used for killing bacteria since before anyone knew what bacteria were.

Karen, silver is an antibacterial, but a ca*p one. you should know this, there have been plenty of topics about colloidal silver in the past.

I would say, save your money and just regulary clean your fridge.
