Super Silver
Jul 20, 2010

I would like to know what is your stand on Super Silver(colloidal silver) for the fights against secondary infections and boosting my immune system?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Colloidal silver is yet another predatory scam without scientific evidence. This quote comes from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine: "There is a lack of evidence for effectiveness and a risk for serious side effects from colloidal silver products. The FDA does not consider colloidal silver to be safe or effective for treating any disease or condition."

Be well, BY
