I am a 50 year old male.  My last 3 bowel movements (all within last 24 hours) have been green.  I do not have diaheria. Should I be worried?.

Green stools can occur for a couple of reasons. certain foods, such as green vegetables or foods rich in iron or iron supplements, can make the stools green in color. as part of the digestive process, the liver secretes bile into the small intestine. It is possible for the stool to move quickly through the intestines and stay green from the bile rather than turning brown in the large intestine. This rapid transit through the bowel can lead to green stools as well as diarrhea. If the green stools continue or diarrhea is persistent, Speak to your doctor
