    Does Asparagus make your pee smell?

    Mine does. But I read an article online that it's genetic; some people have the trait, some don't.

    It doesn't smell if you fill the walls of your apartment with concrete.

    Interesting...I never had that but I did notice my urine having a weird smell for a few days last week. Now that I think about it, it was the same two days I had some leftover asparagus I think.

    There is also a separate trait as to whether or not you can smell it. So, some people get smelly asparagus pee and don't even know it.

    My sister once went to the doctor because she thought she was getting a UTI. After some discussion, the doctor realized what was going on and asked "Did you eat any asparagus yesterday?"

    Heh.

    This poll seems very unscientific to me. Just to be sure, you pee sniffers need to do a controlled experiment. You should pee in a jar after you eat asparagus, seal it, and put it in the fridge to keep it fresh. Then pee in a jar on a day you haven't eaten any, and put it in the fridge. Then invite your friends over to do a sniff test comparing the two samples.

    The idea of this actually made my stomach do a flip-flop. Friends don't let friends smell asparagus pee.

    I love asparagus but I won't eat it because I love myself too much to expose myself to that smell.

    Can we just send you the samples for evaluation?

    How do you think they found out that asparagus makes everyone's pee smell, it's just whether you can smell it that defines whether or not you are aware of it?

    Eating asparagus and drinking fruit-juices will make certain bodily fluids more palatable to women... or so I've heard...
