Man With Blue Skin Dies

blue skinThe 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.

    The key to safe and sane colloidal silver usage is in the dosage.

    The “blue man” was apparently taking upwards of 20 ounces a day, and at one point was adding baking soda and/or salt to increase the concentration. And apparently did this for years on end. This is WAY too much colloidal silver to be taking daily, for such long periods of time. That’s akin to taking an entire bottle of vitamins per day, every day, for years on end.
    It is strictly a matter of ingesting more mineral silver on a regular basis than the liver and kidneys can expel. If you drink more colloidal silver than your normal channels of elimination can handle, your body will store the excess silver, and, over time, will push it out to your skin, which is your third major organ of elimination.

    (Edit: Wow, I got a down-vote. I guess someone out there thinks it’s smart to guzzle colloidal silver. Prolly washing down a bottle of vitamins with it)

      I’ve seen it happen to one person I knew with only just a few doses, taken as instructed. Have you safely used colloidal silver without changing color?

      • Rex Vestri

        Yep, sure have. I’m not even the slightest bit blue (except for my 2nd head, which changes from pink to a throbbing reddish-blue/purple hue when excited).

        • Defiant

          As much as I’d like to frown upon such shenanigans…that was freaking hilarious!

      Also, the size of the particles of silver is very important for preventing this. You can make colloidal silver that is 500ppm and it will not be as effective as 5ppm if the particle size in the 500ppm is greater than 1nm. Particles smaller than 1nm will not bio-accumulate and they are more effective in penetrating a viral Capsid. In fact you can read about it in the Journal of Nanobiotechnology, its proven that colloidal silver at 5ppm of .08nano-meter particles is a powerful antimicrobial that was tested on everything from common cold to HIV and nothing can survive it.

      I disagree. If the nano particles are small enough to metabolize it doesn’t matter how much you drink, the excess gets flushed out your system just like excess anything in you. this guy did turn blue because he was adding so many salines, salts, and who knows what else. OF coursethe FDA will ban something that HAS NEVER KILLED ANYONE, but is known to cure cancer, and kill other viruses, as it cured my daughter of a bacterial infection. I know someone who drank several ounces (sometimes much more than twenty) a day for 23 years, and he was still a whiteboy, NOT A SINGLe SHADE OF BLUE. NOT A SINGLE ADVERSE SIDE EFFECT. UNLIKE THE THOUSANDS OF DANGEROUS SYNTHETIC DRUGS, AND VACCCINES THE FDA APPROVES. I call shennaigans and bullshit on the FDA.

    Now is our chance of a glimpse into the mourning and funereal habits of the elusive smurf.

    Anyway that’s a shame. He was an interesting person to say the least.

    • HCE

      What was interesting about him, aside from his blue/gray hue?

      • Anarchy Pony

        I should have said to say the most.

  • Ed Cichon

    Um… *I* want to be Nightcrawler!

  • DeepCough

    This news is sure enough to make a lot of people feel blue.

    I find it odd that the medical industry utilises silver for a variety of applications (see below) but then demonises it when the general public take to it, pointing to the existence of a ‘blue man’ who was in actual fact taking excessive amounts of poorly prepared product. I suppose even some people will pin his death on his use of silver. Sigh..

  • john mcswain

    How long did he have to hold his breath to get that color? My kids want to know! He certainly didn’t get it from using colloidal silver as usually advised, but please do not use it if you even slightly believe this. Yea, it is expensive and if you don’t use it, well. More for me! This little article is a low spot on the disinformation dial. Weird news must be getting slim now that lame stream media like CNN have found it.

    Rest in peace, Papa Smurf!

    I’m afraid he just blue himself.

    Oh look, another comment section full of people confused by grade school algebra who think they know better than an entire world of chemists, biologists and MDs. How “novel”.

    I’ll always remember those Pentium commercials R.I.P <3

  • Matt Wohler

    Simple, he was a TOOL by the gov’t to BAN it. Colloidal silver is very positive for you when administered properly. You are supposed to let the silver pulser do it’s job alkalized water for 3-6 hours. The problem is is that some people try to speed up the process by putting vitamin A + C, and the so-called “colloidal silver” you can buy at the store. You should never mess with the process. It’s common sense and chemistry 101. Watch his interview. He said he sprayed it on his skin acting all confused, I call BS.

  • Robert Talbot

    This idiot was not drinking colloidal silver, but actually homemade Silver Nitrate. Big difference. People that don’t understand what true Colloids will be the ones that are swayed by article like this.
