For those of you have not been alarmed by the man whose skin turned Blue, Paul Karason, supposedly due to his taking colloidal silver everyday for a number of years there is no need to be alarmed. His reason for turning blue was not due to colloidal silver. It was due to taking a high concentration of silver and adding salt to the brew. He drank and applied this highly concentrated solution to his body. Just like coal miners if you expose yourself to highly concentrated amounts of coal or in this case silver it will affect the pigment of your skin. In fact the claim is very misleading. When this sort of misinformation is published by the media you have to wonder who has the most to gain from the negative spin this puts on Colloidal Silver. I'll leave you to decide who has the most to gain from misinformation like this. Click Here to Buy Colloidal Silver
So what is Argyria?
Argyria results from prolonged contact with or ingestion of silver salts. Argyria is characterised by gray to gray-black staining of the skin and mucous membranes produced by silver deposition. Silver may be deposited in the skin either from industrial exposure or as a result of medications containing silver salts. Click Here to Buy Colloidal Silver
What causes Argyria?
The most common cause of argyria is mechanical impregnation of the skin by small silver particles in workers involved in silver mining, silver refining, silverware and metal alloy manufacturing, metallic films on glass and china, electroplating solutions, and photographic processing. Colloidal silver dietary supplements are marketed widely for cancer, AIDS, diabetes mellitus, and herpetic infections. Cases have followed the prolonged use of silver salts for the irrigation of urethral or nasal mucous membranes, in eye drops, wound dressing, and the excessive use of an oral smoking remedy containing silver acetate.
Argyria has also been attributed to surgical and dental procedures (eg, silver amalgam-tattooing, silver sutures used in abdominal surgery). Blue macules have appeared at sites of acupuncture needles and silver earring sites. Great individual variability exists in the length of exposure and total dose needed to result in argyria.
