A man who gained celebrity status after his skin turned permanently blue 15 years ago has passed away at age 62.
Paul Karason died after a heart attack.
Karason’s skin turned blue after he used colloidal silver to treat his dermatitis condition.
Karason reportedly drank the silver-based remedy and rubbed it on his skin.
The use of colloidal silver in oral drugs has since been banned by the FDA.
