    That said, they are right about the silver particles - colloidal silver is a good antifungal and odor killing spray - and it is all natural. I wouldn't ingest it myself, but people do because it is supposed to enhance the immune system (silver as well as other metals) and give testimony to many benefits.

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    Dude, there's stuff I swallowed I wouldn't even feed a dog. Piles of chemical goo down the hatch, and all came out on the other end again.

    Wouldn't worry about nanoparticles.

    I've also read materials that say collodial silver isn't all that safe to be ingesting all the time.

    Nanoparticles are pretty much atoms. The danger posed by nanoparticles is very small, unless you get a clump of plutonium like that british spy did.
