Hi,
Occasional green stools is a normal phenomenon.
Sometimes when the bowel contents move faster, the stool may appear green. One of the common causes for this faster transit is infection. Sometimes it can occur as a side effect of the medications we take. But mostly it is influenced by the food we take.
