Pursuits in science, technology, and
knowledge are certainly admirable. Ultimately, however, living is a
human endeavor. The following people, organizations, and commercial
vendors have achieved a level of excellence that is worthy of recognition,
based on the principles set forth in our policies
and guidelines. It should be noted that while each of the following
has naturally complied with these policies and guidelines, that mention
here is not a product endorsement, and recognition is not always given
based on product quality considerations alone. We consider each of the
following extraordinary resources, and a tribute to the human spirit.
We are very interested in any suggestions.
Feel free to contact
us with your ideas, thoughts, and suggestions.
Ronald J. Gibbs - Excellence in Private
The late Ronald J. Gibbs receives this
award for his fantastic efforts put forth in the book Silver Colloids,
Do they Work? Having established a baseline for high quality colloidal
silver, Gibbs studied the efficacy of colloidal silver against bacteria
( in laboratory studies ), and concluded that a minimum of 9 parts colloidal
silver to 1 part bacteria-laden water is required for colloidal silver
to be effective in reducing the bacteria colony count to one. He further
concluded that a 20:1 ratio provided optimum efficacy, and cut the required
time-factor from six hours to just under an hour. Through his many insights,
one can begin to see how colloidal silver products might be effective
in the body, where they may be limited, why, and how to best utilize
isolated silver products for optimum health.
Bruce Marx - Excellence in Engineering
Bruce Marx, mastermind and founder
PRO Systems, Inc., invented the high voltage alternating current
( HVAC ) colloidal silver generator in 1994. In Bruce's own words, "There
is a satisfaction in building 'things', and then seeing them fulfill
their purpose, but this [ advancing the science of colloidal silver
creation ] was even more satisfying." The HVAC method offers great
potential for producing large quantities of high quality colloidal silver.
Reid Harvey - Excellence in Humanitarian Service
Ceramic water purification devices
are not a new concept. However, Reid Harvey of Earthenware
Water Purifiers developed a product and manufacturing process that
will provide silver-coated water purification candles to poor people
in third world countries ( principally Bangladesh ) for a retail price
of about $0.25 per candle! Even more stunning is Reid's plan to develop
a small and self-sustaining economic infrastructure that, quite literally,
embodies everything the United Nations was meant to be. By providing
the manufacturing equipment to local "townships", small business
interests will be developed to service and support the local community.
Locals will be producing ( and experimenting with processes, no doubt!
) these candles for retail sales within the community.
