Random Fact: Boy Choy Makes Your Pee Stink

The phenomenon of smelly pee is well known as relates to the consumption of asparagus. But the other day, I noticed I was producing some strong-smelling stuff and hadn't had any asparagus. The night before, however, I had some delicious stir-fry that heavily featured the chinese cabbage known as bok choy.

As a member of the cruciferous or brassicaceae family of vegetables, it is kin to asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and others that have the ability to by-produce odoriferous urine. It was strong, pungent, and distinctly different than asparagus pee, but bok choy was the culprit. It wore off after about a day.

There's not much authoritative stuff out there on the Interwebs on this topic, so I thought I'd weigh in just in case you haven't eaten asparagus and are producing smelly pee. If you haven't eaten bok choy either, one other culprit is sexually-transmitted disease (STD), in which case you should probably get your junk checked out by someone who went to medical school.

  1. If you think bok choy is bad, you should see what beets do... I almost rushed to the hospital after that one.
