The color of urine can tell you a lot about your body. 

Let us face it, most of us don't give much thought to our pee before we flush it out of sight.

The color and odor of urine reflect your health condition and any kind of problem in it. It may have a variety of colors, it usually ranges from deep amber or honey color to light straw color with golden variations in between.

A bunch of things in your body, like medications, foods, and illnesses, can affect how your urine turns out.

More than 80% of the diseases occur due to dehydration and lack of water content in the body.
