Side Effects of Asparagus

Does your's?
I know this is common and many people I know have this pungent odor in their urine after eating asparagus. I know because they told me so. Yuk. But I love asparagus.

It is most likely contributed to asparagusic acid, a sulphur-containing compound that is found in asparagus.

What does one say to that question. Honestly, some things should be kept private, don't you think? Or, ask your doctor.

You eat asparagus and your pee stinks. A fact of life and a small sacrifice for that delicious vegetable.
