Ginger (Definition)

Human studies suggests that 1g daily of ginger may be effective for nausea and vomiting in pregnant women when used for short periods (no longer than 4 days). Several studies have found that ginger is better than placebo in relieving morning sickness.

I know fresh urine can be cloudy and this isn't dangerous. But cheese causes it now, never did before, all my life. Why does it now make urine cloudy?

I know fresh urine can be cloudy and this isn't dangerous. But cheese causes it now, never did before, all my life. Why does it now make urine cloudy?

Acidity, fluids, etc: The main reasons for clear vs cloudy urine are nutrition and fluid intake.

I can't explain why cheese, but my guess it isn't only the cheese; when you eat it you may also taking more or less fluid, different types of fluids, or other food. In any case, this isn't a health concern. No worries! ...Read more
