Copper kills superbugs on contact

This ‘miracle metal’ is a superbug’s ARCHENEMY! [5,000-year-old secret… REVEALED]

If something lands you in the hospital this year, you could become one of the 2 million  Americans who get sick from a hospital-acquired infection.

And as I’m sure you’ve heard, the infections you could catch in a hospital could be some of the WORST out there!

I’m talking about bugs that resist MULTIPLE drugs – and sometimes even ALL of them.

These “superbugs” are so dangerous… they KILL 100,000 Americans every  year.

Now, telling you to STAY OUT of the hospital is easier said than done…

So, you need a plan for how to protect yourself from those FILTHY, SICKENING conditions you’ll be exposed to if you ever do need to be hospitalized.

Fortunately, there’s a “metal trick” that’s been used by nearly every ancient civilization – one that’s antibacterial, antiviral, AND antifungal.

And you won’t BELIEVE how effective it is in providing CONTINUOUS and ONGOING antimicrobial action… even after REPEATED contamination!

This ‘sterile’ setting is CONTAMINATED!

Thousands of years before modern medicine recognized germ theory in the mid-19th century, there was something that ancient people used to STERILIZE both water and wounds.

According to the Smith Papyrus, what ancient Egyptians used 5,000 years ago was copper.

Roman and Ayurvedic doctors followed suit about 2,000 years ago – as did the Aztecs of Mesoamerica and the ancient Persians.

Now, back then, they’d sprinkle copper directly on open sores and into people’s mouths!

Today, we know that excessive exposure to copper can be too much of a good thing .

But that doesn’t mean that this metal doesn’t have a CRUCIAL place in medical settings.

Because it turns out that copper can KILL “superbugs” like methicillin-resistant staph (MRSA) and E. coli.

And it doesn’t stop there – because it can also ERADICATE other staph bacteria (including S. aureus), adenoviruses, and even influenza!

So why are so many hospital rooms FILLED with plastic and stainless steel beds, sinks, and trays… when those materials HARBOR the deadliest bugs out there?

In one study, unsafe levels of bacteria were found in nearly 90%  of samples taken from plastic hospital bed rails.

Gross!

By contrast, a copper table could help DESTROY 99.9%  of E. coli bacteria – and within just one hour.

A stainless steel table could allow those germs to survive for WEEKS .

Copper even helped those who worked with it become IMMUNE to the Paris cholera outbreaks  of 1832, 1849, and 1852.

Two hundred years ago, no one understood why… or how.

But now we know that copper literally SABOTAGES cell respiration… pokes a hole in the cell membranes of bacteria… and, once inside, DESTROYS its genetic material.

No surviving DNA or RNA means no mutation  can occur to help the bugs develop a resistance to this metal surface!

But don’t expect your local hospital to overhaul its most frequently touched surfaces anytime soon. Hand sanitizer dispensers are far cheaper… but unfortunately, far LESS effective (if even effective at all).

You can, however, protect yourself in other ways – by adding some copper supplies to your “go bag.”

Based on this latest science, manufacturers have begun incorporating copper into such products as hand sanitizer, socks, pillows, and even tongue scrapers.

Do your research and see what you might be able to bring with you.

It doesn’t have to be pure copper, either – another metal that contains an alloy of copper, brass , is also more antimicrobial than plastic or stainless steel.
