Dark green poop since few days

I am having dark green poop since few days. I have noticed lately that when I have a bowel movement that it is dark green in nature. Is that a good or a bad sign?

Answer:

Dark green poop is commonly because of the presence of bile in the bowel movement. This happens if the food is digested very rapidly or if passed through the intestines quickly. This might happen in diarrhea. It may also occur in some infectious illnesses like typhoid.

Eating lot of green leafy vegetables or green colored foods or green food coloring, green drinks or ice creams or pops, or even iron supplements.
