Misconception: Since colloidal silver is harmful to bacterial cells, it must also be harmful to human cells.
Available studies indicate that colloidal silver is not harmful to human cells, even though it is harmful to many bacterial ones. It appears that the human body has a different metabolism, different enzymes, and uses thiol groups differently. Also, the human body has several ways of neutralizing and eliminating silver particles and ions once they have done their job. One way to neutralize silver ions in the body is to place the silver ions into so-called “biological containers”. Another way is to bind them to certain biological fibers and sulfur proteins that render the silver ions virtually ineffective and inactive.
