Several times a day, human bodies release a stream of data about internal health. Unfortunately, the data comes analog, and so isn’t immediately accessible as useful information.

Now an infographic from the Cleveland Clinic offers a helpful breakdown of urine colors, from healthy “pale straw” to icky “brown ale.”

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
