Leap in antibiotic-resistant viruses & limited discovery of new antibiotics is rapidly becoming a global health emergency that has led researchers to seek other options to fight off the life-threatening bug.
Copper holds antimicrobial properties that could become the miracle scientists have been looking for, both in preventing and combating infection.
Virus rely on metals like iron and calcium to get the energy they need to remain alive. Copper, instead, is a metal that rapidly & effectively shatters the bacteria.
Copper and copper-containing alloys, like bronze and brass, demonstrate antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties that have been scientifically documented to continuously kill more than 99.9% of the microbes that cause infections within 2 hours of exposure. So-called ‘Contact killing’ on Copper and its alloy surfaces are quick and exceptionally effective, destroying from 10 to 100 million bacteria in 60 seconds!
Furthermore, Copper destroys the bacteria’s DNA, abstracting it from developing a hostility to Copper. Even with COVID-19, it has the most efficient time, up to 4 hours, compared with other know surfaces.
Copper has no harmful effects on people or the environment, additionally due to its antimicrobial properties, it is PERFECT to use in our KITCHEN.
