How does gang green happen?

    Gangrene, which is pronounced “gang green,” occurs when blood ceases to flow towards a given part of your body. When this happens, the tissues begin to decay and die, turning bluish-black. This is characteristic of dry gangrene. It commonly occurs near the extremities, such as fingers, toes and feet. You can also contract gangrene when a bacterial infection in a wound cuts blood flow and white blood cells cannot reach the wound. “Gas gangrene” is similar in that the Clostridia bacteria reproduces in areas that oxygen cannot reach and release gases and toxins. People commonly develop gangrene after severe injuries such as burns and frostbite or diseases including arteriosclerosis and diabetes. These conditions hinder the circulation of blood.
