To be fair, the United States Patent and Trademark Office makes this claim, not I.

Silver (chemical symbol Ag from the Latin root argentum, meaning “white” or “shining”) is a special element. Of any pure element, it has the highest electrical conductivity. It has the highest thermal conductivity of any metal. As its Latin translation suggests, it can be polished into the highest optical reflectivity of any metal.
Silver has been used by mankind as jewelry, semiconductors, optics, dentistry, in the control rods of nuclear reactors, as a chemical catalyst, as a currency and other uses. In its ionized form, silver is a strong anti-microbial agent. It destroys complexes needed by bacteria to respire, which eventually kills them.
Ancient Phoenicians stored their wine, water and vinegar in silver bottles to keep them from spoiling, and is rumored to be a trade secret in the production of modern fine wines. Sailors of the British empire dropped silver coins into their water on long sea voyages to keep their water free from germs. Hippocrates, the Greek father of medicine, wrote of silver’s properties in healing wounds and anti-disease. Silverware uses the white metal as no germs will stay alive on its surface (given enough time), unlike wood or stainless steel. Later replaced by antibiotics, silver’s functions as a germicide and antiviral are not fully understood. (photo)
Now, apparently, per the USPTO and Dr. Marvin Antelman, silver is also the cure for AIDS. In patent number 5,676,977 titled “Method of Curing AIDS with Tetrasilver Tetroxide Crystal Molecular Devices”:
“The diamagnetic semiconducting molecular crystal tetrasilver tetroxide [four atoms of silver and 4 atoms of oxygen] is utilized for destroying the AIDS virus, destroying AIDS synergistic pathogens and immunity suppressing moieties (ISM) in humans. A single intravenous injection of the devices is all that is required for efficacy at levels of about 40 PPM of human blood. The device molecular crystal contains two mono and two trivalent silver ions capable of “firing” electrons capable of electrocuting the AIDS virus, pathogens and ISM. When administered into the bloodstream, the device electrons will be triggered by pathogens, a proliferating virus and ISM, and when fired will simultaneously trigger a redox chelation mechanism resulting in divalent silver moieties which chelate and bind active sites of the entities destroying them. The devices are completely non-toxic.”
So in plain English, this silver doohickey fries AIDS. This patent was filed in 1996. Dr. Antelman lists therein two examples where several test subjects in Honduras in late stages of AIDS all had the virus destroyed by the Tetrasil/Imusil treatment, although several still died from the damage from the diseases that the AIDS virus allowed to evolve. You can reach Antelman’s company, Marantech LLC of Rhode Island here. A comprehensive list of Antelman’s patents can be downloaded from the USPTO link or here.
I encourage the reader to research this even further; I have not contracted HIV or AIDS yet, and none of my friends have yet either to my knowledge, so the level of interest in my pea-sized brain kind of wanes after propagating this information, although of course I first bought more physical silver. I will say that I have searched the internet for evidence that this patent or treatment is some kind of fraud. I have not been able to locate anything, but certainly there must be something screwy as it would seem the mainstream media should have reported on this. Well, they missed the Bush Impeachment hearings earlier this year, the start of the Pakistan war, a Maryland city mayor having his home invaded and his dogs shot (until outrage spiked their interest over a week or so later), Iraq war veterans protesting, then getting attacked by police horses (one veteran literally had his face stomped in) at the third McBama presidential debate, that all American banks are totally and helplessly bankrupt, the Iraq government demanding that all American troops leave by 2011, et cetera. So perhaps, reader, our media might have missed this one too! Please comment with your thoughts or research results below as I am interested. (photo from Romarkin license)
That said, I think it is worth mentioning that Dr. Boyd Graves, of www.boydgraves.com, has claimed that there is something called the US Special Virus Project of 1971 which resulted in the US government creating the AIDS virus and setting it loose amidst the homosexuals of San Franscisco and in Africa simultaneously, and that the US government is committing genocide in Africa so all the resources can be stolen, blah, blah, blah. He sums up his case in this 40-minute video, but after searching for evidence, I conclude that this is most likely nonsense. You can check it out and decide for yourself if you like. It is interesting, though, that his research found a 1984 patent # 4,647,773 from Dr. Robert Gallo, filed on behalf of the US government, that gives the US government the right to mass produce HIV, but I assume this is for anti-AIDS research. Graves does bring up an interesting point, which is perhaps we should all take a closer look at this curing-AIDS-silver-doohickey-thing. I should mention that a key reason for my belief that Boyd’s claims are false is that for the privilege of viewing his key piece of evidence, a “virus flowchart,” you have to pay a $10 fee.
Unfortunately, that’s where my concentration snaps like a twig back to Honest Money. You see, I used my last $10 bill with the aristocratic, central bank-loving face of Alexander Hamilton to buy myself another troy ounce of silver instead. “In God We Trust”? No way! If I ever get a chance to mint a silver or gold coin, it will say, “Trust Your Self!” So please do me a favor and decide for yourself!
Good riddance to central banking, and hopefully good riddance to AIDS as well. We simply do not need them anymore. Looks like silver can help do both!

[Thanks to Ben for pointing this out to me in the first place and Big R for pulling some information from blocked websites I cannot access from China, and to Mary for some encouragement (or demand) to write about something with "sweetness and lightness" as she was not impressed by this article "SPOOF: New Element Discovered in America!". This article is dedicated to the hard-working LT, who does not have time for this silly precious metals stuff as she is busy fulfilling her modern Hippocratic oath:
"I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick. I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure."
I am doing my best against the "disease" known as Fabian statist-socialism, although I don't really think of this ideology as a cancer, just a theoretical school of thought that has been proven dead wrong this century. I mean, geez, Russian socialism did not work, neither does nor will American socialism! Socialism needs to be discarded into the scrap heap! Anywho, the pundits always say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.]
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

“In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” – Mark Twain
“Excuse the wall, I put it up from time to time.
A silver shade, and the design is all mine.
It’s just a maze that everyday I seem to be stuck in.
It never seems to fade away but I pray for the day it ends.
I am not perfect and I don’t claim to be!
And if that’s what you wanted, well then I’m so sorry.”
