Argyria is a very rare condition that turns the skin blue and cannot be reversed. It’s caused either by consuming improperly made silver or consuming too much silver. Which is what happened to this unfortunate man.
Some reports claim the royal family use to always eat from silver to prevent illness. After many years of wear and tear on the silver it started to flake and enter their food and drinks. It eventually turned their skin blue due to argyria and that’s where they get their name “blue blood.”

Benefits of Colloidal Silver
Years ago I ended up with a stye on my eye, I occasionally get these when I’m not getting enough sleep. I guess it’s my body’s way of telling me it needs more sleep. A stye is a painful red bump that lies near the edge of the eyelid. Unfortunately, it lasts for weeks even up to a month, it’s very painful and extremely embarrassing. I woke up one morning with a stye and my mother told me about the benefits of using silver and gave me a bottle. I was desperate to get rid of it so I rubbed some on my eyelid before bed. The next morning it was nearly gone, now I’m a true believer in the benefits of silver.
