Zero Deaths from Colloidal Silver and Other Supplements
A brand new report has been released from the American Association of Poison Control Centers, documenting the number of deaths that occurred in 2013 from some 400,000 substances tracked by the organization.
Yes, colloidal silver is one of the 400,000 substances they track, along with most other nutritional supplements, as well.
But can you guess how many deaths were attributed to these supplements, including colloidal silver? Here’s the straight scoop you won’t hear anywhere else…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
Each year, I like to watch for the report from the American Association of Poison Control Centers National Poison Data System (NPDS), published in the journal Clinical Toxicology.
The report lists all deaths from nutritional supplements, as well as from thousands of other substances ranging from household products such as laundry detergents and cleaning products to over-the-counter medications and pain-killing drugs (up to 400,000 substances are tracked in their database annually).
In the recently released 31st Annual Report, which covers data from the year 2013, the nation’s 57 main regional poison centers logged in 2,188,013 reported cases of human exposure to various substances, plus 59,496 reported cases of animal exposure.
The largest number of deaths from those exposures were due to cardiovascular drugs, which tied for first place with exposure to the pain reliever, Acetaminophen (Tylenol users beware).
Zero Deaths for Nutritional Supplements
So where did colloidal silver fit into the picture, in the Association of Poison Control Centers report?
Yes, colloidal silver is indeed one of the substances they track in the electrolyte, mineral and multi-mineral supplements categories.
And yes, as you’ve likely guessed by now, there were zero deaths reported for colloidal silver, as well.
· Zero deaths for all forms of vitamins and multi-vitamins.
· Zero deaths from botanical products (herbs).
· Zero deaths from all-natural “cultural medicines” (Chinese medicines, Ayurvedic medicines, etc.)
· Zero deaths from homeopathic supplements.
· Zero deaths from “other dietary supplements”.
· Zero deaths from electrolytes, minerals and multi-mineral supplements (except for two deaths attributed to “sodium and sodium salts”).
