You know, veggies can contain bacteria and other contaminants in concentrations just as high as meat, therefore why they are so often implicated in outbreaks involving E. coli, listeria, botulism, salmonella, etc. As a matter of fact, you can... (more)

High white blood cell count with low nitrites typically means that it is not a UTI, but rather a bladder infection.  You need to be seen by a doctor and be put on antibiotics.
