Now here is a funny topic… So as I was sitting here the other day my 8 year old says “mom blood inside of you is not blue, daddy looked it up.”
So of course I ended up looking it up too. I found several answers, but are they the right answer? I guess we will really never know, we can play science into factor and think what we want.
One thing I read was that the blood running through your veins is blue because that blood carries CO2 and the blood running through your arteries has O2. Why this does prove to be true about the CO2 and the O2 the color is not true. As blood loses O2 is does become darker in color.
Now another question you might ask yourself is, Then why are my veins blue? Guess what, they have an answer for that one as well… It seems that it is how the light hits the vein.
