I have a love hate relationship with asparagus. I love the taste, and I hate the side effects. Turns out that scientists have been exploring the “pee-culiar” smell of asparagus pee since the 1700s. And now, thanks to experiments that include smelling pee after eating different foods, AND a special sniffer machine, we’re a little closer to uncovering the reasons behind this odoriferous issue. Plus you’ll hear a bunch of scientific pee puns. What could be better? 🙂  Enjoy!

Oh – and Minute Earth is doing their own research on Asparagus pee and we can help. Take the survey!
