Candace Owens tells fans to get colloidal silver, the cure for Quack makes skin turn blue

Right-wing personality Candace Owens is calling on her fans to use a vitiligo cure known to make users’ skin blue.

In an Instagram video posted on Thursday, Owens praised the use of colloidal silver as a daily supplement, a treatment that has no medical value and is fraught with health risks.

“Yes, colloidal silver!” Owens said in the video. “I take colloidal silver every day, I like colloidal silver. It was a great one. It’s another one that people probably don’t know about.”

While Owens and others have praised the use of colloidal silver to prevent disease, colloidal silver has no valid medical purpose and is fraught with risks. In extreme cases, according to Mayo Clinic, colloidal silver can cause seizures or organ problems.

Owens did not respond to a request for comment.

But the most well-known side effect of colloidal silver is argyria – a condition that causes a user’s skin to turn a bluish-gray color, often permanently. Despite those risks, colloidal silver is sometimes accepted by those outside of politics, including some libertarians seeking treatments for a variety of ailments outside of the health system. For example, the liberal Montana politician Stan Jones, his skin turns blue by consuming colloidal silver.

Owens launched her colloidal silver regimen in a follow-up Instagram comment to a fan asking for more information on colloidal silver, claiming that she takes “teaspoon a day” and “more when I’m sick” in a post mark first by liberal activist William LeGate.

Just one teaspoon of silver a day is enough to cause argyria, depending on the concentration of the silver solution. Based on medical research, a 56-year-old man who took a teaspoon a day for “cold and allergy medicine” noticed his fingernails turning blue.

Owens is not the only far-right figure to endorse silver as a marginal cure. In 2020, FDA alert InfoWars director Alex Jones stopped promising that silver toothpaste and other silver products sold on his website could prevent or treat coronavirus.

Owens’ pro-glue silver video comes days after the disastrous interview where Owens, who works for conservative commentator Ben Shapiro’s The Daily Wire, interviewed former President Donald Trump. In a surprise move, Trump rejected Owens’ criticism of the coronavirus vaccine, praising the vaccine’s results as “very good”.

In the same video where she praises colloidal silver, Owens downplays Trump’s support for a vaccine, claim Trump is “too old” to read anti-vaccination information on the internet. She also attacked vaccination more widely, claiming that there is “real evil” behind tetanus shots. Candace Owens tells fans to get colloidal silver, the cure for Quack makes skin turn blue
