I looked down with alarm: My urine had a distinct red hue, as had my solids. I anxiously started rationalizing it, running through scenarios and thought, “That’s not red. It’s more of rusty brown.”
Then I panicked, and then ran to my Lord, Google, and I sat before Him, and searched for the Answer, and typed, “Red urine” and POP it came up: “red urine from beets” which I clicked and read, and then read some more, and then a wave of relief washed over me as I realized that my recent beet eating had made my outflow look like my insides were hemorrhaging.
So take this dark tale of mine and remember it next time you may be crossing paths with the innocuous red invasiveness of the beet.
Follow me and I will take you away from the everyday.
