Judge Orders End To Utah Man's Sale Of Silver As Virus Cure

 A federal judge has ordered a Utah man to stop selling silver products marketed as cures for the coronavirus. The Deseret News reports U.S. District Judge David Barlow issued a temporary restraining order against 60-year-old Gordon Pedersen and his companies, My Doctor Suggests LLC and GP Silver LLC. U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber filed a civil complaint against Pedersen saying he fraudulently markets silver products as a cure for COVID-19. The complaint says Pedersen and his companies have promoted silver products as a treatment for various diseases including arthritis, diabetes, influenza, and pneumonia since about 2014.
