Urologist Questions Urine Problems

Can certain foods cause a smell in the urine?

I read an article on how certain foods like asparagus and garlic could transfer a certain smell to the urine. Is this true? How does food smell come to the urine in spite of the entire digestion process that occurs in the body?

Yes!! Try eating asparagus
Yes, especially green vegetables.
Yes this is true, your body breaks down asparagusic acid into sulphur compounds, which your kidneys excrete creating the smell.
Yes ie sparagous.
