Where

did I state they were "superior" to antibiotics?

Have you ever heard the saying "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"

I have personal experience with the "market driven" advancements you refer to. I caught a terrible infection (in the hospital btw) after a surgery on my leg, and was close to having it amputated.

After THREE MONTHS (twice the normal course) of the strongest IV antibiotics, carrying around a backpack with bags and pumps, and watching my 27 year experienced infectious disease doctor shrug his shoulders, I decided to try silver. I asked this doctor what he thought about it and he chuckled and said he "wouldn't recommend it."

Well, guess what? I tried it, and 3 weeks later was tested and was NEGATIVE for MRSA.

So, you believe what you want. I know what worked for me. Am I advocating that someone try silver instead of antibiotics? No. Each has it's place.

But, if you actually believe medicine is "market driven" you haven't the foggiest clue of what you are talking about. I've dealt with this big pharma driven, AMA dictated, robotic monstrosity for over 25 years, and I can tell you that many times they have their heads up their asses.
