green poo

This is fairly grody, but it's so hilarious it had to be shared. I never wondered, but now I know: drinking large amounts of purple gatorade makes your poo BRIGHT GREEN. Like leaves on plants green. I laughed so hard I cried when I saw the green there in the bowl.

Apparently it's the vast amount of Blue #1 dye they use to make it purple -- passes right through your system and combines with the yellow tones in poo to make green.

You should really avail yourself of the soft drinks made by Skeleteens Counter Culture Sodas.

Many of them are nigh-undrinkable, but sufficiently strange that they ought to be experienced. Black Lemonade is my favorite and not coincidentally one of the more drinkable of the lot. A single Brain Wash (the blue one), turned my stool blue for about three days.

I have just come accross this website after searching on google for green poo, at the advice of my girlfriend. Reason being i have been experiencing Green Poo myself. Rather than laughing like my girlfriend is right now i was quite worried!
But i have been drink excessive amounts of Patriots Choice powder solution.

So thats it crazy American drinks cause green poo. Problem Solved. Thanks foodnerd

I have been drinking black Sambucca....this I have found causes Green Poo!!

I have had green poo for a week and have been quite concerned. Some of it was bright green... almost neon green. Unlike others, I didn't laugh because I thought maybe I was consuming too much copper in my diet. You know... due to bad plumbing or something. Anyway, I read the comments here and realized I recently started drinking 1-2 grape Powerades each day. Now I know the cause of my green poo...and I have discovered a great party trick!

SO I haven't been drinking any weird soda/powerade/sports drink concoctions and I have just experienced my first green first I was slightly scared thinking I had a bad disease then I laughed a little when I read all the comments here!

But I'm wondering what else would cause green poo? I've have the flu for the past few days could this be it? although I've never had green poo the other times I've had the flu. All I've eaten is apples(not green ones either!lol) and have been drinking water.

would anyone know what this could be?

So my fellow poopies,

I too have experienced the great green terd. I was having a big dirty old poop and a whole bunch of green shit came out. It clogged my fing toilet.The smell is pretty dirty...actually its really dirty , but my g/f loves it :) , i called a plumber , he came in to sqush the poops down dee toilet but when he seen it , he ran and called the me wht do i do?????

The Green terd srikes again!!!

Like the rest, I was conserned about my poo, and like many others in this "Green Poo afisionado" page, I was releaved when I started to read the comments of the rest of the victims of the infamuse "Green poo". In my case I just had yesterday like about a Quart of a purple flower extract called "Jamaica". This particular drink is usualle consumed by Hispanics (like my self) and like most of us, we think its just bad "guacamole". Since in my case I did not eat any "guacamole" I did not make the connection as to why the Green poo. Thanks to this forum, I now know why Green Shit happens.

Funny forum, liked it a lot.

i was so embarresed i had unprotected sex for the first time misse a period and thought i was pregnant...i still dont know but at least the green poo has nothing to do with it!

OK so my Village Fair was on Bank Holiday Monday (August 29th) and I saw a liqurice booth, so I bout quite alot of it. I bought roughly 2 ft of Green Liquorice, Blue Liquorice and 1 ft of Orange, then last night (28th August) and about 5 mins ago (August 29th) I had the oh so famous Poo A la Green. I laughed and freaked out at the same time, and my mum thought I had dyed it with Ink, but from reading this it sounds like it was probz the blue colouring in the blue liquorice, but what i'm conserned about is, does this just go because personally i'd rather just have the same old Brown Poo, answers would be appriciated!

Posted by: Nick at September 14, 2007 07:58 PM

I have had many a great green turd. oooh wonderous green turd your secrets need answering. It could be down to the powerade consumption but i also get it when i eat loads of veg. so could a high level of clorophyl cause this radioactive turd? I dont know, but it always fun to get a green one.

Posted by: dude that stinks at September 15, 2007 05:47 AM

I just had my first experience and googled it straight away to make sure it was nothing serious... And I have been racking my brain for something I have eaten out of the ordinary with food colouring.... Froot Loops is all I can come up with. I NEVER eat them, everything else is the norm for me.... oh and I had a few too many chocolates on the weekend. Thanks foodnerd :)

Posted by: Loopy at September 17, 2007 05:06 AM

Ive been having the "green" issue for a few weeks, while growing up my mother told me it says you havn't had enough fruit and vegies... but i have narrowed it further to the large amount of licorice i have been consuming lately seems that 1kg bad will keep it going for days) not something I would go to the doctor about but enough concern to google it.

Posted by: Ravang at October 25, 2007 06:45 AM

We have all experienced the green turd every now and then, but its always fun to get one. Ha Ha. LOL. :) . to get a green turd drink a whole bunch of blue koolaid. It works every time.

Mint sauce and red wine. Thats what does it to me, but in flowing form, not terds. Proper spray all over the pan, quite embarassing!!

good to know im not terribly sick. i just eat way more peas than necessary.
green poo is such a weird experience. i thought the water in my toilet was messed up at first. then i flushed and a cloud of green was released from the poo. teehee.

Posted by: greenie at June 7, 2008 02:07 AM

The greeb turd strikes again and this time lasted for 3 weeks. In my case I have not had anything with dye that I know of. Any Ideas what might have cuased it.

Posted by: thegreenone at June 17, 2008 02:05 AM

So uh, yeah I just had a green poo...seeing as everyone else seems to thinks its from blue or purple drinks, I would imagine it was from the blue/green slurpee I has earlier today.
