As if Silver wasn't good enough, I find the other nobles on the chart to be about as amazing as silver and in some case with gold and platinum more amazing. The last 14 year I done research on the effects of Atomic noble minerals on the human body and the results are unbelievable. I just did a radio show on it. Any one else have any experience with noble metal or links on references etc.? Any one got any questions on Gold Platinum and the other nobles?

in pure form gold is inert in the body. silver can cause heavy metal toxicity when ingested. platinum i'm unsure of, but why would we evolve to make use of such rare, hard to access minerals in our diet?

There are drugs conatining silver, gold and platinum but they are all quite toxic. Probably not a good idea to play with these unless you really know what you are doing.

"The last 14 year I done research on the effects of Atomic noble minerals on the human body and the results are unbelievable."
'nuff said.

That's a fairly well documented effect. I can believe it with no problems. A similar effect gets a mention in one of the Sherlock Homes stories IIRC. There's a similar effect with gold, but it's less common (gosh!).

What I bet I can't believe is the claims the OP is making.
Still, perhaps Im just skeptical. If the claims are valid then all he has to do is cite the peer reviewed literature refference and we can all amke up our own minds.

Osirisisisis did ask for links Re: effects of Platinum ...

Cisplatin, cisplatinum, or cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (CDDP) is a platinum-based chemotherapy drug used to treat various types of cancers, including sarcomas, some carcinomas (e.g. small cell lung cancer, and ovarian cancer), lymphomas, and germ cell tumors. It was the first member of a class of anti-cancer drugs which now also includes carboplatin and oxaliplatin. These platinum complexes react in vivo, binding to and causing crosslinking of DNA which ultimately triggers apoptosis (programmed cell death).
