    Interesting, and yes. I am glad we are discovering the cause. Next step: genetically modified non-stink-pee asparagus.

    I can. I learned I wasn't weird for it earlier this year thanks to MinuteEarth.

    Asparagus always reminded me of beta mercaptoethanol.
    After I first smelled it (beta mercaptoethanol) in a molecular biology lab.
