I’d never even heard of this phenomenon until a few months ago when a colloidal silver zealot posted a long screed about its benefits at a messageboard I frequent. Every other sentence was a condescending chip-on-its-shoulder bit of trollbait, and he predictably went completely batshit & drove off in the waaaambulance the moment somebody pointed out the weaksauce in his argument & data.

I got curious, though, and looked into it online. What followed was several hours of solid, wall-to-wall WTF.

And before the accusation is made: yes, I’m fully aware how easy it is tint somebody’s skin tone in photoshop –or any visual media, for that matter. The links below, also, weren’t picked with any real due consideration…just curiosity throwing darts in the webosphere. Consider it all a priori.

    Paul Karason was actually on TV a while back when the health channel was doing a piece on Colloidal Silver poisoning. It was pretty interesting since I myself used to take it. Use to make it myself as well.

    Someday, some nut is going to sell lead pellets and write a whole article about how lead being classified as poisonous was a huge conspiracy by the big drug companies.

    Yeah but lead has been long provide to be toxic, especially if methylated; much like how silver and gold has been proven non-toxic. Go to a store and look for silpure products in bedding for example.

    I’ve got a Health Encyclopaedia from 1959 on my bookshelf and I looked up Argyria and it said “see Pigmentation of Skin”.

    Pigmentation of Skin has a whole bunch of stuff, including albinism and other disorders but here’s what it said about Argyria:

    Administration of arsenic may cause skin pigmentation and the taking of silver nitrate may lead to a leaden-grey hue of the whole skin (argyria).

    I’ve had arsenic poisoning before. Not very fun since it makes you obviously sick but also turns you yellow for a few days. Don’t burn chemically treated pallets.

    Heard about the blue people of Kentucky?

    I don’t actually know how accurate any of that article is. But it is interesting.
