Werewolves take note. That new silver-gray shirt or workout pants could make you a fashion victim in more ways than one, as clothing and appliances made from experimental SILVER NANOPARTICLES have appeared in stores around the globe.
Experimental nanosilver first began appearing in stores around five years ago, when some appliance manufacturers started putting it in air purifiers, washing machines and even refrigerators where it’s anti-microbial properties could help make clothes cleaner, air fresher and your food last longer.
Then this year, a wave of shiny silver duds crested over the fashion world. These silver-gray shirts and pants, even underwear, made from fabrics coated with nanosilver have been advertised as anti-stink wear for the sweaty but stylish. Nanosilver is now everywhere.
Which raises the most obvious question that nobody is asking, what about the werewolves?
Well nobody except ah, me. I asked.
“Well we know the silver nanoparticles do shed into the environment,” writes Dr. Suresh Valiyaveettil of the Environmental Protection Agency. “I suppose that werewolves would be affected along with the fish and everyone else.”
Almost right Dr. Suresh. Werewolves, as everyone knows, are actually affected first and worst by the presence of silver. Could this supersaturation of silver be the cause of werewolves around the globe unable to transform last summer?
Or the angry green werewolves fought off by Lycangirl07?
What about the dreaded Silver Bloods reported by several, including Ashpaw and Silver Werewolf?
(Not to be mistaken for the Silver Hoods which although only one tiny letter apart on the keyboard, Mr. Mutt assures us are entirely different!)
Is this not irrefutable evidence of silver poisoning among lycan kind?
“I’m not sure if there’s an established threshold for silver poisoning among werewolves.”
Not until you get busy and establish them, Dr. Suresh!
Until there are established guidelines the best advice for a concerned werewolf is just to research and be aware of all these new, unexpected sources of silver that could be present in your environment, from your washing machine, to your local swimming pool to that new gray workout shirt. Check labels and tags and sound the alarm if you notice a telltale green glow in the mirror.
