The Christian Post reports:
Paul Karason, who was known for having skin that was blue, passed away after suffering a heart attack at the age of 62.
Karason reportedly began turning blue 15 years ago after using a silver-based remedy to treat a skin condition and drinking colloidal silver. He was left a dark shade of the hue and led a reclusive life until deciding to appear on the Today show with Matt Lauer in 2008.
The FDA has since banned the use of silver because it causes argyria, which caused Karason’s blue color. Silver also collects in the skin and will not dissolve. Instead, doctors recommend penicillin or other forms of treatment.
