Silver has centuries of history as a disinfectant, but with irregular results. However, as a nano particle, which is a minuscule cluster of atoms synthesized by scientists, the element appears to be more reliably potent against pathogens, and it does not cause inflammation. When added to condoms, microscopic nano particles of silver may create a powerful safety net against HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), the Canadian National Post reported. An interesting research and more about this possibility you can read here.
