Fun green facts!

In Medieval times green sometimes represented love and the base, natural desires of man. It was the color of the serpent in the Garden of Eden who caused the downfall of Adam and Eve. However, for the troubadours, green was the color of growing love, and light green clothing was reserved for young women who were not yet married.

In Persian and Sudanese poetry, dark-skinned women, called “green” women, were considered erotic.

 

The consumption of green M&M’s has earned urban legendary status as a purported aphrodisiac, though the company that makes them has pointed out that they are identical in content to all the other colors.

 

Green in Europe and the United States is sometimes associated with status and prosperity. From the Middle Ages to the 19th century it was often worn by bankers, merchants country gentlemen and others who were wealthy but not members of the nobility. The benches in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, where the landed gentry sat, are colored green.

 

Light therapy either uses a lightbox which emits up to 10,000 lux of light, much brighter than a customary incandescent lamp, or a lower intensity of specific wavelengths of light from the blue (470 nm) to the green (525 nm) areas of the visible spectrum.  Phototherapy outfitted with Light Heat Energy (LHE) technology works by exposing the affected skin to ultraviolet light B (UVB).  The green that is present in UVB are capable of reaching down deep, under the surface of the skin. This is where bacteria that are responsible for acne grow, and the green light kills them.

 

In Hinduism, Green is used to symbolically represent the fourth, heart chakra (Anahata).  Psychics who claim to be able to observe the aura with their third eye report that someone with a green aura is typically someone who is in an occupation related to health, such as a physician or nurse, as well as people who are lovers of nature and the outdoors.
