So you're medically trained and happy to ignore very clear, well tested evidence to show that consuming colloidal silver, over time can lead to going a greyish blue colour, kidney failure and various other problems. That seems extremely strange.
It's an unfair question as someone already linked two videos of a guy that turned a smurf like colour but i'm interested as to how you will answer it.
Colloidal silver however has not met the same test, it's very damaging adverse effects however are well documented.
The Mayo Clinic puts together research from numerous sources and addresses it in a neutral fashion. They are one of the best neutral sources you will find.

Show me the research. There was no documentation of any research done by the Mayo clinic in the Mayo Clinic article you presented.
I did a brief google search for research on colloidal silver and found nothing other than those who support colloidal silver. When looking for research this is not good enough for me.

It turns you blue, without doubt, without question

No it isnt simply 'protecting something we believe in' as you stated earlier, i am standing up for it because through personal experiences it was worked amazingly well.. science certainly isnt everything, hell they still cant suss out what the human soul is.. so does that make it bad, wrong or not real? hardly.. As with everything i would imagine , CS may not be for use by everyone, hormones and body chemicals make such things react different to each individual, also depending how ill you are..And yes, the guy who turned blue was making the water improperly, therefor the harsh side effect, had he studied and researched before starting to make the CS he more likely than not would have been just fine. again, you cant blame the 'potion' for an idiots misuse of it.

Its like I said before, I bet this guy will start campaigning against something like water, next. Because, you know, too much water and you may die! Mayo clinic says so!

Oh which reminds me, for those with an unhealthy fixation on mayo clinic:
Just as coincidence, I have been studying the amazing cancer fighting properties of vitamin C. There is a growing body of evidence supporting it, so the "awesome" mayo decided to test it. Sure enough, they botched it completely, and made a useless study, because they decided to apply vitamin C orally, when ALL THE EVIDENCE AND PRIOR STUDIES clearly showed you need to inject the vitamin C into the bloodstream for the real results to show up. This was just off the top of my head.
Colloidal Silver: Where does it go when you drink it? How long does it stay there? a short medical study (10 pages) by Roger Altman, Eng. Sc. D., who took the task upon himself to find out the answers to the above questions by making careful measurements of the silver that he consumed and the silver that he excreted in urine, feces, hair, nails, sweat, etc. From his carefully collected data, we now have an indication of how well the body uses and eliminates colloidal silver, and of what might constitute "safe" levels of daily consumption so as to avoid silver buildup and potential toxicity in the human body. This study provides only one set of measurements on one individual, and therefore may not be applicable to other people because of bio-individuality. Nevertheless, it is fascinating data which has been carefully obtained by a scientifically trained individual using modern analytical tools. It suggests that a healthy adult can consume approximately 2 mg. of colloidal silver per day without risk, barring problems such as kidney or bowel disease that could inhibit the body's normal elimination channels. Since 1 one tsp. of 10 ppm colloidal silver contains approximately 50 micrograms of silver, it would take approximately 40 tsps. of 10 ppm colloidal silver to make 2 mg.
