silver nanoparticles aren't really that kind to the environment...
Another bottle of snake oil with pseudo scientific backing.
I realise ukcs hands are tied by advertising revenue but please apply a little technical rigour to your advertorials.
gravy has a point, and the extraction of silver has contributed to a number of environmental problems in the USA, Australia, Spain and no doubt elsewhere!
On top of that, long term use of colloidal silver not only interferes with some antibiotics but can also cause argyria, a non-fatal condition which turns the skin permanently blue!
These days colloidal silver is normally associated with homeopathic remedies, none of which have ever been proven to work.
UKC, I understand advertising funds this awesome media source but do think you could be a bit more choosy about what you advertise!
In reply to Theo Moore - UKC and UKH:
That was credible until the last sentence which immediately rang all my "woo" alarms!
Apologies, that wasn't actually part of Shaun from Friendly Foot's reply to this topic! It should have read:
"Colloidal silver and ionic sliver are very different. Colloidal silver can not and will not make you blue. Generally if a form of salt is added it can have that effect. That is why I make my own. On top of that, to turn blue from a bad source of colloidal silver you have to ingest very large amounts... On a side note, as much as I love colloidal silver I have been trying alternate spray solutions. The reason!? It takes 5 hours to make one gallon of colloidal silver... Yikes! As I keep growing, it is becoming less sustainable to keep up. Don't worry though, the alternate once complete is going to be even better!
The answer to extraction of silver. I have two silver rods that are used in making the colloidal silver... been using the same rods for 4 years now. When something works, it just works and there are a lot of articles regarding the effects of colloidal silver."
Hopefully that's helpful!
