A pea bean! Sounds like it depends on when it is eaten (like if the chick pea is eaten green and the garbanzo bean is eaten tan). :? One thing's for sure though: kidney beans are not pee!

It is a pulse.
What Is a Pulse?

The edible seed of a legume is known as a pulse, a name taken from the Latin word puls, meaning a thick soup. Familiar pulses include peas, beans, lentils, and chickpeas.

Coincidentally, ingesting pulses can affect pulse rate.
The effect of beans on pulse rate, total cholesterol (TC), and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) were sex dependent (P < 0.05). In males, pulse rate, TC, and LDL were decreased by 6.5%, 11.5%, and 18%, respectively. In females, pulse rate increased by 9.6%, and TC and LDL were relatively unchanged.

Hmm, I think what happened there was that the women were more likely to hold their farts in... "On a more serious note, the physiological responses to distended intestine are elevated blood pressure and pulse"...
