Argyria

Health Professionals

Fraudulent information is being widely circulated about Colloidal Silver in an effort to discredit the product and those that produce and sell it.  In some cases people have unwittingly contaminated themselves with Silver Chlorides (silver salts), after being told that they were making their own homemade Colloidal Silver. Silver Chloride contamination causes argyria, which is very damaging and irreversible.  There are absolutely no reported cases of pure Colloidal Silver causing Argyria.  It is humanly impossible to ingest such large quantities of pure 20 PPM Colloidal Silver to develop argyria.

Argyria is the result of ingesting large quantities of toxic silver salts into the body, causing skin to turn grey-blue.  Toxic silver substances like Silver Chlorides or Silver Nitrates photo-reduce (activated by sunlight) and appear as a permanent stain in skin.  Silver Chloride and Nitrates were once widely used Pharmaceutical products, doctors prescribed such solutions in moderate concentrations so as not to cause argyria.  As with many products people voluntarily overdose and/or Doctors were and are unaware that large concentrations of silver salts cause argyria.  Medical professionals in and outside the Natural Health community have erroneously put Colloidal Silver in the same category as Silver salts of Chloride or Nitrate, which is an ignorant and false conclusion. 

Pure Colloidal Silver will not cause argyria regardless of how much a person ingests.  It is physically impossible to drink such a large quantity of Colloidal Silver to cause argyria.  Many people have also been misinformed by do-it-yourself “Colloidal Silver” Makers that make Chlorides rather than Colloids.  Many problems and complications arise when making homemade Colloidal Silver, due to air environment, quality of water, silver supply, and many other variables ultimately determine quality.  Equipment to make homemade Colloidal Silver is inexpensive online, however equipment to test quality is not cheap.  Most are unwilling to pay laboratory fees to determine the quality of their homemade products, so they gamble and risk their own health.

Pharmaceutical grade Colloidal Silver is made in a controlled environment, each batch is monitored and tested to ensure quality.  All variables are carefully monitored to supply consistent and pure products.  Rapha Laboratories Colloidal Silver is made from pure pharmaceutical grade silver which contain no toxins.  Big Pharma consistently undermines the beauty and simplicity of Natural Health products and the methodologies, malicious and fraudulent tactics are used to create fear against Colloidal Silver.

Consumer advocate Tim Bolen has followed the activities of  a group of called the “Quackbusters” since one of his clients in California came up against the Big Pharma propaganda network.  Tim asked the big question “why would this group use a doctor from Pennsylvania, as their witness, when there are 300,000 health professionals in California?” then he writes… “thus began my education.  Now I’m going to educate YOU…”

Tim and millions of Americans have found “Quackbusters” making false and misleading statements about Colloidal Silver.  Tim states, “It is a propaganda enterprise, one part crackpot, two parts evil.  It’s sole purpose is to discredit, and suppress, in an “anything goes” attack mode, what is wrongfully named “Alternative Medicine.” It has declared war on reality.  The conspirators are acting in the interests of, and are being paid, directly and indirectly, by the “conventional” medical-industrial complex.”
