NEWTON, N.J. — The Committee for the Responsible Use of Silver in Health (CRUSH) announces an extensive web site,, containing factual information on medical, biotech and industrial uses of silver in health.

“ is the most authoritative source of information on the Internet on the subject of using silver for human health,” said CRUSH founder Ralph Fucetola, J.D., “covering safety and efficacy as well as regulatory issues.” CRUSH maintains that the safety information provided on the site for ingested silver is unequalled anywhere, including the “12-for-25 Rule,” a simple formula created by CRUSH for easily calculating safe, responsible usage amounts for any ionic silver or colloidal silver product.

In illustrating the rapidly increasing use of silver in health, CRUSH points to a recent article, “Ionic Silver — The Powerful Defense Against Viruses And Other Microbes,” written by CRUSH member Herbert Slavin, M.D., Director of the Institute of Advanced Medicine, which appears in the current issue of Health Freedom News, published by the National Health Federation. The article can be viewed at

“This seminal article is the clearest presentation yet on the continuing growth of ionic silver in natural health, medicine and industry,” Mr. Fucetola said. “Citing excerpts from numerous recent news stories, it paints a persuasive picture of a trend that is just beginning, as we learn more about molecular structures for the delivery of silver ions for killing germs.” It also suggests that Silver 100 with Opti-Silver (Invision International Health Solutions) seems to be at the leading edge of this growth technologically with respect to using ionic silver systemically in humans.

News excerpts cited in the article contain such significant language as, “To date, no pathogens have been able to survive contact with silver.” The article has been reprinted on some of the world’s leading information sites for silver investors, including and

CRUSH strives to bring factual, responsible information to a field that, until now, has had a considerable need for this kind of resource. It pulls the plug on irresponsible labeling that results in excessive oral intake of silver, and cites EPA guidelines in illustrating that responsible oral intake introduces less silver to the body than what could exist in a liter or two of ordinary drinking water.
