That's why you need more metal in your life!
I have some good-to-know information about antimicrobial metals, what that means, how it has
helped others ...and why you NEED to be wearing and touching it as much as possible.
Lets talk Copper and its alloys Brass and Bronze.
These metals have a structural ability to kill a wide range of dangerous bacteria & viruses (microbes).
It happens quickly, sometimes within minutes.
How does that work? Electrically charged particles (copper ions) are released when microbes
(transferred by touching, sneezing or vomiting) land on the surface. The DNA and RNA then become destroyed.
Until 1932 when antibiotics became available, Exposure to copper was an early version of
constantly sanitizing your hands.

Who has benefited already...
Did you know that during the cholera epidemic of 1854 and 1855 that deaths could NOT be found
among jewelers, goldsmiths, boilermaikers - all those who worked in copper. People in the army,
who played brass instruments were also protected.
Over 100 years ago copper railings were put in New York City's Grand Central Terminal.
After checking on those rails a few years ago it was still found to be a durable, effective antimicrobial.
That's quite a testimonial! Read more from the Smithsonian here
Another study talks about copper and what it does to coronavirus.
What can we learn from this?
Wear and touch these metals as often a possible. If you don't play
an instrument or have door knobs and rails etc. you can always wear some antimicrobial metal jewelry!
My newest jewelry pieces were designed for touching so you can absorb as much as possible.
Weaing rings on your finger lets you touch and spin that ring.
Wearing the copper cuffs allows you to run your hands across them throughout the day.
The earrings aren't contacting your skin but you need some
complimentary earrings, right?! Plus you can reach up and slide your fingers across them too.
