Bowel movement question my bowel movement is green, all green and lately I have been suffering with a lot of gas. What could be going on with me and how can I get my bowel movement regular color. Is this a danger to my body?
Green: Green stool can be caused by food coloring, green food, or also can be caused by food moving too quickly through the digestive tract. If your diet is high in fatty foods, it can move quickly through your digestion, and the bile salts don't have time to turn it brown. Also if you have a bowel infection it can cause the stool to move through quickly. Be sure you are eating a balanced diet with different types of food, and a low fat diet. If you develop diarrhea, vomiting, or fever, then please be medically evaluated. ...Read more

After wiping with toilet paper following a bowel movement, I found a green pea on the toilet paper, which made me wonder, do we get any benefit from veggies since they're not digested?

Also, cholesterol sticks to it and fiber lowers cholesterol a bit. Furthermore, we don't know why but it is associated with better control of glucose in diabetes. Also, higher fiber intake is associated less cancer ...Read more

Any: Any foods with blue dye can cause blue poop such as boo-berry cereal, kool-aid, jell-o or even natural sources such as blueberries. Good news! The only stool colors we get really concerned about are red (blood from colon), black (blood from small intestine or stomach), or white (liver is not working well). Colors such as brown, yellow, orange, green, blue, or even purple (beets) can all be normal and usually associated with diet. If she has a persistent change in her stool habits, you should contact her physician since this could be a sign of an underlying disorder, but a one-time strange stool that is not red, black or white is usually of no concern. ...Read more

Work up to solids w bland foods like bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, gelatin, or chicken. Avoid alcohol. ...Read more
Hello, I've had green stools for awhile and been only having one bowel movement everyday. What can be the reasoning? Scared it's cancer I'm 18.
Green stools: There are many things that can cause stools to be green but the basic cause is the food is passing to quickly thur the intestines. Normally bile makes stool green at the start and a normal transit time lets the stool go from green to yellow to brown. Google green stools and see if any of the causes match with what you are doing. Cancer is low on the list at your age. ...Read more

Bile=green: The body adds bile acids to the digestive tract to aid digestion. These start out green and will transition through yellows to brown if they are metabolized by gut germs before exit. Rapid movement through the gut or poor gut germ action leaves it green. It does not indicate a real problem. Probiotics added to the diet can energise the gut germs. ...Read more
