We’re Sarah and Mande and we heard about a special metal that can kill bacteria: silver. Turns out silver has been used throughout history from Egyptians to American settlers to prevent bacteria in food and wounds. We stopped by the Sciencenter in Ithaca to learn more about how nanosized silver is being used today. Nanosilver is just silver broken down into such small pieces so it is even smaller than bacteria. We learned that there are some socks with nanosilver in them to keep them stink-free.
