Silver biocide - a quick question

Good morning all,

I recently took an enquiry on the Helpline from someone who had experienced allergic symptoms after buying an electric heater. They raised concern about a product called 'silver biocide' and its connection to asthma and pulmonary disease.

We haven't had any previous enquiries about this and I'd be very interested to hear if any of you have any information/experience of possible exposure or ill effect relating to it.

  • Hi

    A bit of light reading for you.

  • Hi stone, thanks for this. Rather a weighty document, but at first glance it looks very interesting.

    Do you have any personal experience of silver biocides?
