Why are scrubs blue or green?


Ever wondered why hospital scrubs are the colours they are? The answer is actually a lot smarter than you think and involves understanding how our eyes work (along with the laundry). (Yes yes I know you get all sorts of colours now but scrubs' original name was 'greens' or 'blues' - the variations are recent creations since these work-pyjamas began to be worn outside 'scrubbed' environments.)
