DTU Environment Professor Anders Baum tested in the program "DR- Kontant" whether the use of silver particles in everyday product like cutting boards and socks is harmfull to the environment.

It was a programme about how manufactures and stores increasingly play on our fear of germs and sell everyday items such as cutting boards, socks and band aids with special antibacterial surface that fights bacteria with silver. But does it do more harm than good? It examines "DR - Kontant. It is also tested whether old-fashioned cleaning with soap and water removes the bacteria effectivily enough.

The program can be seen here.
