..ah yes..the "OMG Colloidal Silver will turn you blue too"
Special thanks to some folks who indulged in a bit of
light hearted fraud just to make the situation even
more confusing. Great..just what the FDA needs..more
encouragement to make free use of their IRON FIST to
further suppress natural remedies..and protect the
financial interests of their
corporate big pharma master.
The Blue Man Fraud
By now nearly everyone has seen the story about Paul Karason who
the news media has dubbed "The Blue Man". Although the news media
has continually said that he was taking Colloidal Silver , nothing
could be further from the truth.
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. The purpose of this
campaign was to scare the public away from using Colloidal Silver products.
The tactic was to claim that the Blue Man's condition was caused by his use
of colloidal silver thus implying that anyone who uses colloidal silver
would suffer a similar fate. The entire story as presented is a
study in blatant misrepresentation. The fact is that Paul has a
condition called argyria that turns the skin a blue-gray color.
He got this condition by taking his homemade silver compound
that was mostly a highly concentrated ionic silver solution.
When he prepared the solution he believed he was making colloidal
silver. He was not making colloidal silver. To make the solution
even more dangerous, he added salt to the brew and then used
electrolysis to make a high concentration of silver chloride
with large particles which is well known to cause argyria.
He further applied the compound to his skin causing him to
become an internal and external photographic plate. To finish
himself off, he used a tanning bed to "fix" the silver in his body.
The moral of the story is to know the difference between true
colloidal silver and ionic silver or silver proteins, and don't
try to make either at home! (True colloidal silver cannot be made at home.)
The Blue Man charade demonstrates once again that the mass media
cannot be trusted to report anything that even resembles a truthful
"news" story. All "news" today is propagated with an agenda
just like the phony economic statistics put out the U.S. government.
