Colloidal silver is often a topic of controversy. Mentioning it to those who are strict believers in only Western medicine can often make you feel like an insane witch doctor. But we’ll break down the myths and deliver some truths about the side effects, so you can make an informed decision for yourself.
Colloidal silver has gotten a bad rap since the Food and Drug Administration made a claim in 1999 (almost 20 years ago) that there is no scientific evidence to support the use of colloidal silver. If one translates that from “government-speak,” it basically means the FDA has not used government funds to study something not recommended by the government because they haven’t been paid to do so. They want you to use the medication and supplements lobbyists pay them to defend and promote. The FDA also proceeds to warn potential users on their website (who are often simply looking for information) about the danger of colloidal silver and why consumers should steer clear before bragging about “taking down” certain companies for “making false claims” about colloidal silver – what most government agencies are declaring as “snake oil.”
