You, sir or madam, are a lying sack of dangerous shit.
"Home Remedy No-No Number 4: Colloidal Silver
With hype and hope spread by word of mouth and the Internet, colloidal silver is believed by some to help treat a range of infections and diseases.
"People believe that colloidal silver can treat fungal infections, TB, HIV, herpes, and even cancer by boosting the immune system," says Ted Epperly, MD, president-elect of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Unfortunately for colloidal sliver supporters, they're wrong, and the consequences of their mistake could be costly.
"One of the most well-known side effects of colloidal silver is that it turns a person's skin a greyish shade of blue," says Epperly.
The skin isn't the only organ affected by colloidal silver; so are the kidneys, stomach, and brain, as well as the nervous system. Silver is actually deposited into the cells of these organs, possibly causing cell damage and death, leading to organ failure.
"The effects of colloidal silver are toxic and cumulative," says Epperly. "Worse, they're irreversible."
Epperly urges people to ignore the hype and instead, talk to a health care provider about the proper way to treat infections and diseases.
