The Tragic Consequences Of Colloidal Silver Use

Colloidal silver is considered by many to be a homeopathic and naturopathic remedy. It was first used in the early part of the 20th century to treat maladies prior to the development of modern antibiotics.

After its discontinuation in the 1940s, the silver-based dietary supplement returned in the 1990s, promoting benefits that ranged from fighting infections to providing healthy and glowing skin. However, the latest incarnation of colloidal silver products continues to lack the warnings necessary for consumers to make informed decisions.

The Dangers Surrounding The So-Called Safe Use Of Colloidal Silver

Simply put, colloidal silver is not as safe as the hype by product manufacturers may claim. With sustained exposure to silver or silver dust comes dire side effects that include:

  • Argyria or smurf syndrome, which irreversibly turns skin gray, silver or blue, depending on the race of the victim.
  • Poor absorption of certain antibiotics, thyroxine and other drugs

Attorney Patrick R. Burns possesses both experience and success in this specific area of personal injury law. For victims in Minnesota and the rest of the five-state area, he has fought to secure justice and maximize compensation for victims. A significant part of his practice sees him staying ahead of an industry where companies settle colloidal silver injury lawsuits only to establish the same business under a different name.
