green twosies

so stop reading, oh wait I guess it has already gone there, butt (he he) anyways. I was having an issue with green dookie and it was concerning me. I remember being asked by my sister in law about green doobers. Well being it happened two (he he) me over the las month or so I looked into it (no not in there, the internets).

I have consulted with a doctor, a physiologist and a microbiologist on this question, and the following summarizes their answers:
Healthy people can have green poop if they eat a diet rich in leafy green vegetables, or if they consume large quantities of food coloring (in ice cream, cake frosting etc.).
Green poop can also be caused by excess iron in the diet, from dietary supplements, for example. If the body does not absorb all the iron consumed, the iron may stain the poop green, the color of iron (II) salts. Ordinarily, the green color may be masked by the normal brown poop color, but if digestion is thrown off by illness so that bilirubin is less concentrated in the intestine, the green color may become apparent. This can happen when a person is afflicted with diarrhea.
Green poop in sick babies may come from iron in baby formula not being properly absorbed, or by green pigments in bile salts (again, green from iron).

google it for more info, it is full of crap (he he) on the subject. Butt (he he) I figured out what it is in my case. Grape sugar free kool-aid. I hardly ever drink water anymore, just bunches of purple drink. It goes great with vodka 😉
