Heard about the colloidal silver 'Blue Man?' Here's why the scare story is public relations fraud
by Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The case of the legendary "Blue Man" whose entire body turned blue after taking a liquid concoction that the mainstream media continues to refer to as "colloidal silver" is a fraud. Contrary to what you may have heard about the incident, 57-year-old Paul Karason from California had not been taking real colloidal silver at all when he turned blue, and the entire charade appears to have been nothing more than a shock-factor story to detract the public from exploring the truth about properly-prepared silver colloids and their incredible power to heal when taken appropriately.
Karason was all over the news in 2008 after having developed a condition known as argyria, which is a permanent blue-ing of the skin caused by the ingestion of too many silver salts and proteins. Karason had been making his own silver mixture at home using salts and extended-length electrolysis to generate a silver chloride solution with large silver particles. In short, this high-risk blend, which is far different from the majority of ionic silver and silver colloid solutions sold at stores, built up in his body and caused him to turn blue.
"The Blue Man story became a major media disinformation event which was produced by a public relations firm and paid for by a pharmaceutical interest," says Purest Colloids, one producer of true silver colloid solutions. "The purpose of this campaign was to scare the public away from using colloidal silver products."
This makes sense when considering that thousands, if not millions, of people take ionic silver or silver colloids solutions on a regular basis without incident, and none of them are blue. Argyria, after all, is a very rare condition that only seems to come about as a result of consuming improperly-made silver solutions that contain too many silver particles that are too large in size, and that were made using the addition of salt.
In Karason's case, he admittedly took far more of his silver solution, which was already problematic to begin with, than any normal person would ever take for a typical health condition. And this, of course, is another glaring fact that has typically been left out of most mainstream news reports about Karason and his condition. Karason's case, in fact, is one of the only verifiable cases of argyria in the U.S., which shows just how uncommon and unlikely it truly is.
