It’s Silver Lining Or Tarnished Reputation?

Many metals have antibiotic properties, such as copper, brass, bronze, and silver.  Bacteria that come in contact with these metals have their cellular activity disrupted in a number of ways that are deadly to the cells.   This is not true of stainless steel or aluminum, for example, two popular metals that are a mainstay of modern buildings.  Most hospitals and medical facilities are now in the process of replacing the shiny, easy to maintain surfaces with traditional brass or copper; this includes doorknobs, push bars, light fixtures and so on because they possess surfaces that are toxic to those...
