Different Colours can affect us in many different ways; thats according to Verity Allen.

In her new series Colour me Healthy, Verity looks at the ways that colours can influence how hard we work and the choices we make. how healthy we are. Ha!e you e!er noticed how "eo"le always use the same colours for the same things# says Verity. $ur tooth"aste is always white or %lue or may%e red. Its ne!er green. &hy not# 'or some reason we think that %lue and white is clean, while we think of green "roducts as %eing a %it disgusting. Its the same for %usinesses. &e res"ect a com"any which writes its name in %lue or %lack, %ut we dont res"ect one that uses "ink or orange. (eo"le who design new "roducts can use these ideas to influence what we %uy. During this four)"art series, Verity studies eight different colours, two colours in each "rogramme. *he meets "eo"le who work in all as"ects of the colour industry, from "eo"le who design food "ackets, to "eo"le who name the colours of li"sticks. *ome of the "eo"le she meets clearly ha!e !ery little scientific knowledge to su""ort their ideas, such as the American Colour Doctor who %elie!es that serious diseases can %e cured %y the use of coloured lights. Howe!er, she also inter!iews real scientists who are studying the effects of green and red lights on mice, with some sur"rising results. $!erall, its an interesting show, and anyone who watches it will "ro%a%ly find out something new. +ut %ecause Verity is goes out of her way to %e "olite to e!eryone she meets on the series, its u" to the !iewers to make their own decisions a%out how much they should %elie!e. , &hat is the writer doing in this te-t# A gi!ing information a%out how colours influence us + re"orting what ha""ens in a new tele!ision series C gi!ing information a%out a tele!ision "resenter D gi!ing his o"inion of a recent tele!ision show . &hich of the following shows the "ro%a%le content of the four shows# (art , / Health; (art . / (roducts and Industry; (art 0 / 1motions; (art 2 / Decisions (art , / +lue and +lack; (art . / 3ed and $range; (art 0 / &hite and 4rey; (art 2 / 4reen and 5ellow hey can e!en change our emotions and e!en influence
