In this requisition from 1999, the FDA acknowledges it has no evidence that colloidal silver (at least real colloidal silver, as we define it) causes argyria, death, or harmful drug interactions. Zero studies. Zero reports. The FDA’s Adverse Reporting System has nothing to substantiate the horrible PR war raged against colloidal silver.
Colloidal silver is an antibacterial, antiviral, anti fungal agent that has a long history of medicinal uses. Today, it has continued use as a wound healing agent (especially burns), uses in hospitals on surfaces from glass to curtains, use on medical devices like catheters, as well as a range of mundane uses from your workout gear to food storage to nursery paint.
Currently, India and China are taking advantage of the many benefits of colloidal silver, testing it against a range of pathogens. They’ve found evidence that it doesn’t cause resistance in pathogens (like antibiotics). There’s been a few indications that American companies may be developing their own brands of nano silver for future sale.
Finally, the current party line against colloidal silver from the FDA comes from the EPA, who are worried about how it affects the smallest part of the food chain. What’s important to remember is that it’s easy and financially rewarding to remove nano silver from waste water using algae.
