In a car seat commercial I overheard a woman say "you know you shouldn't have a baby touch silver?". What the shit kind of statement is this, and why is it that important to state in a 30 second commercial for car seats? It's complete irrelevant to the product and sounds bizarre. So, I googled that shit.
Colloidal silver can be used as an antibiotic. Before modern antibiotics, families with enough riches to afford silver realized it had health benefits. They would give their baby a silver spoon to suck on. That's where the insult "born with a silver spoon in your mouth" originated from. After modern antibiotics came into play, silver supplements started to disappear. Before completely disappearing we've found that over-exposure of silver or silver dust can cause argyria.
For example, the man that turned blue. Some dumbass self medicated for a skin condition using his homemade colloidal silver. After a decade his skin turned a blue-gray color. Most extreme symptom of argyria.
Babies are more at risk of any illness than an adult, or teen. No matter your riches, having your baby suck on a silver spoon probably isn't the best idea. However, it may be less risky of a way to get rid of an infection than over the counter medications. It's the little things.
Is this a known fact, or is it also bizzare to you?
