Health is wealth!  And you don’t have to be a doctor to know basic health details especially when it comes your body. 

Most of us don’t give much thought to our pee before we flush it down.

But the basic details of your urine color, smell, and how often you go can give you a hint about what is going on inside your body.

A bunch of things in your body, like medications, foods, and illnesses, can affect how your urine turns out.
