I remember watching John Craven's Newsround when I was little and seeing a boy who was orange through over-fondness with the aforementioned orange root vegetables...
Eating or breathing in silver can (if enough is ingested) cause a condition known as Argyria which can turn a person's skin blue or blue-grey - to my knowledge the condition is permanent.
a good friend of mine consumed one quart of carrot juice daily because he thought it was good for him. After a month or two, we all noticed that his skin developed a very distinct orange hue. We still laugh about this and refer to it as his orange period. He stopped drinking the carrot juice after this and his skin returned to a more normal shade after a while
Carotenemia is in itself harmless and does not require treatment. By discontinuing the use of high quantities of carotene the skin color will return to normal. It may take up to several months, however, for this to happen.
