I am very interested in nutrition\supplements\medicinal plants. I've never used silver, but have read some very impressive accounts of it's seemingly
"miracle" anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.

This guy apparently had developed a sensitivity to silver, or perhaps simply
accumulated toxic amounts through long-term use.

Yeah this is the 'classic case' used by the colloidal silver naysayers.

The guy was using way,way,way too much..and his 'poisoning' was the discolouration.

Still healthier than most people though.

I was thinking this guy must be the butt of Smurf and Blue Man Group jokes!

I'd like to see some tests on how fast and clean cuts/scrapes bruises heal.

^ 1st line was so great I didn't need a second one.^

I used a reference to this guy when trying to explain to someone that skin color is irrelevant.
They couldnt quite comprehend as most racists are fairly dense.
But I tried to explain this man is Caucasian except his skin is blue.
Would you pick on his white race?But hang on his skin color is blue?
So would you define him as a blue and pick on his blue skin color?
It got them rather confused.

I'm a smurphophobe and found your post insulting. Smurfs need to be eliminated from our society, they are taking our jobs and responsible for violent crimes. Rumours about me having impregnated Smurfette are greatly exagerated.

How can I be serious in a thread that has a blue man in it?

Here's the scoop on how to make it at home,

and from that article, how NOT to turn blue:
" The ONLY type of water you should use is distilled water, which has been distilled by water distillation (not reverse osmosis). There are NO exceptions. All other types of water have too many impurities. While water impurities help speed up the cooking of the colloidal silver, the minerals in the water can bind to the silver particles and may eventually create a health condition known as argyria. Argyria is a condition where the skin turns grey or blue-grey because of taking high doses of impure colloidal silver over time. It is very difficult to reverse the condition, so it should be avoided."
Happy trails, Papa Smurf...
