I did, as that is what we were taught in school. But when further research proved it differently and I was taught otherwise in nursing school, I believe different now :)

ALL blood is red...just different shades. It is never blue it might look blue through your skin but it is not actually blue.

When did it change? Cause I was always taught that blood is blue, and the oxygen from the air makes it turn red.

As in, when did they realize I was right? Because I got told I was wrong in middle school when I told them the blood on our body is red.
