Zinc has been used for centuries. In the 1800's surgeons used zinc as an antiseptic/antibiotic after surgery and were noted for its amazing healing properties. Wounds would heal, at times, as quickly as 24 hours after an operation, without swelling, and scarring was barely noticeable after a short period of time. "Doctors Pories and Strain use zinc salts preoperatively and postoperatively to promote wound healing and to correct zinc deficiency." 66
Proper zinc levels offer a defense against the entrance of pathogens. "Dr. Phillips of San Antonio, Texas, has noted that zinc transferring is normally bound to lymphocytes and that this zinc transport system may be a vital beginning in immune reactions. Dr. Robert S.
