Silver is poisoning the environment!

http://www.silverdoctors.com/bankerf...nmental-risks/

"A just released Science Daily study states that silver particles embedded in clothing pose severe environmental risks to the environment due to sewage water contamination by silver."

Ahhh, the evil silver is going to kill us! Save the children!

OK. How do we enterprising minds recover the silver from our waste water to, you know, save the environment?

are they equally concerned about the exorbitant antibiotics concentrations, in the ground waters, in the rivers, and food we eat daily? I'd rather have silver, honestly.

I doubt it

Silver isn't a dangerous metal by itself so why would contamination be something to worry about. Silver in your body is another issue. There was a fad where people were ingesting colloidal silver thinking it had health benefits. That wasn't true, but what it did do is turn their skin permanently blue.

I thought it only turned blue if used too much, but aside from the blue color, it did not hurt the body?

Plenty of people use colloidal silver to tackle viruses ( including vets ) but you mainly read the scare stories about those who really took too much and of the wrong particle size.
I also reckon its not really harmful in our drinking water and is certainly a lower threat than a whole lot of other stuff that is somehow allowed.

Silver is a commonly used biocide in drinking water; as you said it must be used in the proper concentration.
