So, this is weird. Have you ever smelled your urine after eating asparagus?

Did you know that asparagus has certain chemicals in it that creates sulphurous fumes in your urine? Studies show that only 40% of the population can actually smell these fumes and that it's genetic on whether you can smell it or not.

I started eating baked asparagus in the spring and seriously thought there was an issue with my septic system. Gross, huh?! It's that bad.

I did not know it until I read about it though.
