...because I have "blueberry poop!"  I work for a fruit grower/processor/nursery located in the PNW, and blueberry season has just begun.  As I have no self-control when it comes to fresh blueberries, my poo has now turned the lovely deep green color that comes along every blueberry season.  I'm so, so, so glad fruit isn't problematic for me.  I'd die!

That's funny! When I started eating blueberries in my cereal every morning (I buy frozen wild blueberries all year round) I freaked out because my poo turned dark purple. I thought it was blood that had turned dark.

I wanted to get a closer look, so I put on some vinyl gloves and did some poo fishing one day. The blueberries had actually turned into jelly, I imagine from the pectin in them. Scared the poop out me...yes, excuse the pun.

I wonder why it turns some poo green and in others it stays blue? Fruit doesn't bother me either.
