Title: Copper
Post by: bigbear on March 25, 2020, 01:38:40 PM
Since we're passing a $2T package, can we mandate some long term value in hospitals and require them to use copper instead of stainless steel?

Very high maintenance with copper, not so with SS.

I read some studies that said the same about copper and brass with a high copper content.  I didn't see any mention of silver although I didn't go looking for silver specifically.  For personal use I don't see a practical use for copper, but if going out to a bar right after things open a copper top bar may not be a bad idea for a while :)

Copper is an anti-microbial.
Silver is the anti-viral.

Time to ditch the tin foil hats, copper and silver from now on :)
