Argyria results from prolonged contact with or ingestion of silver salts. Argyria is characterized by gray to gray-black staining of the skin and mucous membranes produced by silver deposition.
April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. When is your skin like a black and white photograph? Sounds like the start to a bad riddle, right? Instead, its the essential question behind a new study from Brown University. The study shows, for the first time, how ingesting too much silver can cause argyria, which is a rare condition that turns a patients skin a striking shade of grayish blue.. Its the first conceptual model giving the whole picture of how one develops this condition, said Robert Hurt, professor of engineering at Brown. Whats interesting here is that the particles someone ingests arent the particles that ultimately cause the disorder.. Its been known for years that silver had something to do with argyria. Argyria has been documented in patients who have undergone alternative treatments involving silver and people who - ill advisedly - drink antimicrobial health tonics containing silver nanoparticles. Researchers have found silver particles lodged deep in the ...
The article below comes from the Department of Dermatology, University of California Davis. It discusses the safety and effectiveness in greater detail, as well as dosing that is known to cause argyria (and death). http://dermatology.cdlib.org/111/case_reports/argyria/wadhera.html.

Firstly, almost all studies that were done on the antibacterial and viral effects of silver were done in vitro, or in a petri dish. The human body is not a petri dish and there are far more factors at play in the human body. As Quackwatch writes, the fact that a product inhibits bacteria in a laboratory culture doesnt mean it is effective (or safe) in the human body. In fact, products that kill bacteria in the laboratory would be more likely to cause argyria because they contain more silver ions that are free to deposit in the users skin.. Furthermore, the National Institute of Health states that silver has no known function or benefits in the body when taken by mouth and that there are no legally marketed prescription or over-the-counter drugs containing colloidal silver that are taken by mouth.. The NIH also states that taking colloidal silver has several potentially serious side effects, including argyria, the discoloration of the skin, which is usually permanent.. The FDA, the ...
Blue nails, or more formally azure lunula, are characterized by a blue discoloration of the lunulae, seen in argyria and cases of hepatolenticular degeneration (Wilsons disease), also having been reported in hemoglobin M disease and hereditary acrolabial telangiectases. In Wilsons disease the blue color involves the lunula (most intense pigmentation) and fades proximally. In argyria, the nail is permanently pigmented a slate-blue color and is most evident in the lunula. Minocycline and Zidovudine can also turn the nail plate blue-gray. There are also reports of hydroxyurea as a rare cause. In season 6 of House MD in the episode 12 titled Remorse, House diagnoses his patient with Wilsons Disease in absence of Kayser-Fleischer rings by removing the nail polish to note the blue nails.

Colloidal silver is the product the FDA and many mainstream medical people love to hate. Listening to them you would think every person taking colloidal silver is going to turn gray with silver accumulation in their skin (argyria). Their worst nightmare is people taking colloidal silver to combat the H1N1 swine flu the nightmare for them is that it might actually work.
Colloidal silver has been around a long time. It was used extensively in the 20th century until antibiotics became popular and relegated the use of silver in general to relative obscurity. Colloidal silver wasnt patentable; drugs were. Profits were made in selling a patented product. And some silver compounds had side effects if used improperly. They could cause argyria, a cosmetic skin condition which could cause the skin to turn a blue/gray color. With the present day problems of bacteria becoming resistant to antibiotics, colloidal silver is making a resurgence in popularity and use. One of the reasons for the renewed interest is the fact that bacteria and viruses are not resistant to contact with silver. Colloidal silver may be the magic bullet for mankind if antibiotics are no longer useful. Colloidal silver was used to cure and/or treat many diseases before being replaced with antibiotics.. What was thought to be the end of infectious diseases was accomplished in the 1940s. With the ...
There has been much hype generated by those opposed to the use of colloidal silver, regarding the skin color changes that have been seen to occur, usually in the folds of skin at the elbows and knees. They usually fail to mention that this bluing or greying of the skin happens only after many years of exposure to very large quantities of silver salts, not the pure metallic colloids. The experimental studies often cited, and other cases of Argyria, were the results of the ingestion of toxic silver compounds such as silver nitrate. It was also an occupational hazard for silver miners who regularly breathed silver ore dust over the course of their careers. The use of micro-doses of colloidal silver for therapeutic purposes does not fall into this category, as it is not toxic ...
Colloidal Silver: The Natural Antibiotic. The complete guide to the many uses and benefits of colloidal silver. • Explains how to use colloidal silver to boost immunity, reduce inflammation, and treat 80 common diseases and conditions, including eczema, acne, thrush, flu, asthma, hay fever, mastitis, canker sores, gingivitis, and conjunctivitis. • Details the correct dosages and applications of colloidal silver, including the proper parts per million (ppm) for acute treatments and daily use. • Debunks concerns about colloidal silver and argyria, the blue man phenomena associated with silver intake. • Looks at the latest scientific studies from UCLA Medical Center, Temple University, and other well-known institutions. Colloidal silver was widely used as a natural antibiotic and antiviral until the mid-20th century when its use was overshadowed by the development of pharmaceutical antibiotics. Now with the rise of antibiotic-resistant infections, colloidal silver has reentered the ...
Basement membranes in the kidney are made up of a homogeneous matrix. In argyria, silver passes from the blood in the ionic form and diffuses into the kidney basement membranes in which it is precipitated. X-ray diffraction studies of silver-stained rat kidneys show that most of the silver in the kidneys is combined with some form of sulfur. Histochemical staining for sulfhydryls and disulfides demonstrates the presence of these groups in basement membranes. It appears that silver ions combine with either or both the sulfhydryl or disulfide groups in the basement membranes and also in mitochondria (when the silver diffuses into a cell).. ...
Montanas Libertarian candidate, who is seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Max Baucus in November, definitely stands out from the rest of the herd. Stan Jones, 63, has turned blue from drinking a silver solution thought to boost immunity. He started taking colloidal silver in 1999 for fear Y2K disruptions would cause a shortage of antibiotics. His skin began turning blue-gray a year ago. While he no longer takes the supplement, the skin condition, called argyria, is permanent. People ask me if its permanent and if Im dead, he said. I tell them Im practicing for Halloween. Or a second career in Las Vegas.
Acupuncture needles have been reported in bladder,2 ,11 nuchal and occipital area,4 shoulder girdle,12 spinal cord,3 ,13 right atrium,25 right ventricle,14 ,15 L5 nerve root,16 medulla oblongata,17 ,18 skin,19 carpal tunnel,20 calf21 and paraspinal muscle.22. Because the needle in our patient was not migrating, the only symptom he developed was fear about his general condition. However, patients may develop a whole range of symptoms depending on the location of the needle. In a case described by von Riedenauer et al acupuncture needles retained in a 25-year-old patient caused pneumothorax followed by dyspnoea.12 The acupuncture procedure had been carried out 5 years before this presentation, for treatment of right shoulder pain. A case of argyria (deposition of silver in the skin) caused by embedded acupuncture needles was also reported.19 Abumi et al described a 60-year-old patient who had a needle that penetrated to the medulla oblongata, which was discovered 18 years after the acupuncture ...

The mud is a tan/buff color on the thin top layer with layers of very black underneath due to anoxygenic conditions (very low oxygen concentration). We discussed two habitat zones, middle and lower, with very different mud consistencies because of different mud shrimp species that inhabit them. We used a mud core to collect and identify specimens of each. Neotrypaea californiensis (Ghost shrimp) are a sexually dimorphc species that are sediment feeders living in the middle zone. They are a waxy pale pink or orange color and can grow to about 10 cm. These are considered habitat engineers due to their ability to change the mud as they burrow and eat their way through it. VERY hard to stay afoot; dont forget to check for the photos. Pressing on further out into the flat we felt the mud consistency shift, signalling the lower zone where we found our second mud shrimp Upogebia pugettensis (Blue mud shrimp). It is tan to bluish-gray and grows to about 15 cm. In contrast to Neotypaea, it burrows ...

I feel that my vagina is very tight and from talking to other post op women this is not unusual. In a lot of ways thats a good thing, but I was a little worried that it could make the exam more difficult. She did the exam with her fingers and speculum and it was easy, so there was no need for worry. She asked me what kind of tissue was used to make the inner lining of my vagina and the truth is I dont know. I never learned the specifics of the operation, as I would be sleeping anyway. That it was a penile inversion surgery is all I know. This doctor did tell me that the vaginal wall was mucous tissue which explains why I am able to get moist there, even enough for sex without artificial lubricant sometimes. Apparently she has seen other patients who have a different type of tissue there ...
Amalgam Tattoo: Ever notice a small blue-gray stain in a soft part of your mouth after dental work? Called amalgam tattoos, they occur when a tiny piece of amalgam filling gets embedded in your cheek or gum. The silver in the amalgam leaches into your mouths soft tissue, resulting in what looks a bit like a tiny tattoo. Amalgam tattoos pose no harm. But if the blue-gray spot grows or changes color, there is a good possibility it may not be an amalgam tattoo. Ask your dentist to check it out ...
Lead has been found in at least 922 of 1,300 National Priorities List sites (hazardous waste sites) identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A release from an industrial plant, or from a container, does not always lead to exposure. You can be exposed to a chemical only when you come into contact with it. Exposures occur through breathing, eating, or drinking substances containing the chemical, or from skin contact with it. If you are exposed to lead, the appearance of symptoms and their seriousness is dependent upon how much, how long and by what way you were exposed. Your sex, age, lifestyle and state of health also contribute.. What is lead?. Lead is a naturally occurring bluish-gray metal found in small amounts in the earths crust. It has no special taste or smell. Lead can be found in all parts of our environment. Most of it came from human activities like mining, manufacturing, and the burning of fossil fuels. Because of health concerns, lead from gasoline, paints and ...

The official study by the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) based on the data of 2018 has not revealed any cases of occupational diseases at the Uralasbest plant, which is confirmed by an official study document recently published on the Rosportrebnadzor website.. Rospotrebnadzor experts have reviewed the statistics of all enterprises of the Sverdlovsk region for 9 months of 2019, and have concluded that the level of occupational diseases in the region is steadily decreasing. Manufacturing industry enterprises have the highest number of occupational disease cases. The smelting industry takes the first place in the number of occupational diseases (65.2%); the second place is divided between production of other non-metallic products, repair and installation of machinery and equipment, production of other vehicles and equipment (8.6% each); production of finished metal products and manufacturing of machinery and equipment ...
Current Research: My primary interest is in fungal genomics. As associate director of the Center for the Conservation of Biological Resources (CCBR), I oversee a variety of rather diverse research projects. Two projects in which I am currently involved include a study of the genomic response of dermatophytic fungi to silver compounds, such as silver nitrate, silver sulfate and colloidal silver, commonly used in medicated patches used to treat large surface area injuries such as burns. Our goal is to understand the mechanism by which fungi develop a tolerance or resistance to silver. Using qPCR to study the expression of key metal transport and sequestration genes we hope to be able to shed some light on the pathways used by fungi to get around these commonly used anti-microbial agents.. The second project is a collaborative study to explore the microbial diversity of the deep subsurface terrestrial environment, both endemic and introduced, found within the Sanford Lab at Homestake near Lead, ...
