Man Has Green Blood Like a Vulcan.

Here's life imitating Star Trek:

A team of Canadian surgeons got a shock when the patient they were operating on began shedding dark greenish-black blood, the Lancet reports.

The man emulated Star Trek's Mr Spock - the Enterprise's science officer who supposedly had green Vulcan blood.

In this case, the unusual colour of the 42-year-old's blood was down to the migraine medication he was taking.

It's called sumatriptan. However, the condition that it caused to this guy, sulfhemoglobin, is so incredibly rare that they don't even know exactly how it's caused or what causes it or why it happens to certain people, so it wouldn't turn the vast majority of peoples' blood green.
