Just for information..  :-)

Beeturia, the passage of pink or red urine after the ingestion of beetroot, is said to occur in 10-14% of the population, and is more common in iron deficiency and malabsorption.

The red you are seeing in your urine or excrement is not blood, despite its red color, but the indigested pigment from beetroots called betacyanin.

Symptomatic Beta Thal Minor.
