Obviously your body didn't think it was very necessary since it excreted it into the urine.

Drinking a glass of urine provided that you also drink water at some other point is fine. Drinking nothing but urine for an extended amount of time will lead to dehydration and death.

The human body is not a perfect "water" cycle. It is consumed in several biological processes.

One important aspect of creating and expelling urine is to keep the bodies Water/electrolyte ratio at an acceptable level.

When one drinks nothing but urine, they re-consume the electrolytes present in their urine and slowly decrease the total amount of water present in their body. This leads to a higher salt(electrolyte)concentr ations in the blood. This higher salt concentration in your blood causes what water you have left in your cells to move via osmosis into your bloodstream..where it will re-enter your urine.

After several cycles without re-plenishing your water you will die of dehydration.

Therefore, it is not the drinking of the urine that will kill you. It is the lack of drinking water at the same time that does you in.

If peoples' idea of medicine is to drink their own piss or smear their piss all over their face, then I have to laugh.

why wait in a long line to drink from the water fountain

you have your own personal one built in!

still, given the choice of drinking urine and eating feces id have to say that by an extremely wide margin drinking urine is safer

Oh yeah, definately urine over feces!

Feces is loaded with all of the bacteria from your intestines.

And having bacteria living in your lower intestines is a lot different than consuming the bacteria living in your lower intestines.

Bad news...

I think you can do it about 7 times in a row before that batch becomes toxic

There's a reason why your body got rid of the urine in the first place...why in the hell would you want to drink it?cuz it's tasty obviously.

10-21-2003, 09:42 PM
No it wont kill you. In fact there is a whole following of urine therapy which involves drinking your own urine and/or putting it on wounds...used for acne, stomach problems, and cuts...yap some people drink their urine and believe that it clensess them, dont think it will kill you.

nice, imagine seeing some little kid on the beach crying that he got stung, then some random bystander begins to pee on him.

if you're drinking the amount of water you should, your urine should be mostly water

mine is almost perfectly clear by the end of the day
