Not very scientific. If you look under beets, for instance, there is a reference to a "nutrition PhD" who claims that you can tell if you're iron deficient or not by whether or not your urine is pink. Iron has nothing to do with that!!! It's the betacyanin, the flavanoid that makes the beet red. Sometimes useful as a starting point but need to confirm with more reliable sources to confirm health benefits.
