A Little Info on Urine.

The following was taken from "Caring 4 Urology" but can be found in several sources on line.

Facts About Urine

  • Adults pass about 1½ quarts of urine each day, depending on the fluids and food consumed.
  • The volume of urine created at night is about half that formed in the daytime.
  • Normal urine is sterile. It contains fluids, salts, and waste products. But it is free of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
  • The tissues of the bladder are isolated from urine and toxic substances by a coating that discourages bacteria from attaching and growing on the bladder wall.

I would say that if you completed Biology 12, or if you've watched the movie "Dodge Ball" you would have already known that urine is completely safe to drink though.

From Dodgeball:

Peter La Fleur: [after Patches hits Justin in the face with a wrench] Yeah, uh, Patches... are you sure that this is completely necessary?
Patches O'Houlihan: Necessary? Is it necessary for me to drink my own urine?
Peter La Fleur: Probably not.
Patches O'Houlihan: No, but I do it anyway because it's sterile and I like the taste.
Peter La Fleur: ...Okay.

Connecticut~ I may need meds, but you, you need a life. Stop spending so much time here and get out and do something constructive. Start your own blog or something. You obviously like to see your ideas on the screen.

ALOT is not actually a word.
