Health Effects of Silver

This critical review of studies examines exposures to the various forms of silver.

Most studies discuss cases of argyria and argyrosis that have resulted primarily
from exposure to the soluble forms of silver. Besides argyria and argyrosis, exposure to soluble
silver compounds may produce other toxic effects, including liver and kidney damage, irritation
of the eyes, skin, respiratory, and intestinal tract, and changes in blood cells. Metallic silver
appears to pose minimal risk to health. The current occupational exposure limits do not reflect
the apparent difference in toxicities between soluble and metallic silver; thus, many researchers
have recommended that separate PELs be established.
