What are the causes of Color?


Do you know what causes the green pigment on plants, grass & vegetables predominately? Do you know what are the causes of color? I wanted to take this time to elaborate on Color & the "liquid sunshine" called Chlorophyll, from the Greek Chloros meaning yellowish green..
As you may already know, people of color & other entities in life have the hue's of black, brown, red & "yellow" due to the production of Melanin (which transmits the heat of the sun into energy that is absorbed to the skin from the sun). But do you know why plants are of color & green like the leaves, tree's & other wildlife? 

We all have a pigment that produces color to our skin and like hue mans, other species also have a color that produces pigmentation to them also! Chlorophyll is the reason for the hues in plant life & in animal species. Hue man beings also need chlorophyll & digest it anytime they eat anything that has hue (color) especially if it's green.. 

Did you know the first Hue man beings were also green?.. More on that when time permits itself to. Do you know everything just about that we intake naturally they have made a pill for? There are even melatonin & chlorophyll herbal supplements. We naturally absorb these energies when contact with the sun or us intake greens.

In the mean time, I would like to reference this website, Chlorophyll absorbs certain wavelengths of light (similar to how hue mans do). It channels the energy of sunlight into chemical energy, converting it through the process of photosynthesis. In photosynthesis, chlorophyll absorbs energy to transform carbon Read more here

All green vegetables contain chlorophyll, especially leafy greens such as romaine lettuce, collard greens, parsley and turnip greens. Spinach in particular contains a very high concentration of chlorophyll: about 300 to 600 milligrams per ounce. A small serving of raw spinach every day would more than cover the dosage needed to remedy body odor and bad breath.
