This is gross ... yet I found it interesting, I personally never heard of it until today. I know I could never even bring myself to think about trying it... yuck!!!

But for those out there who may be brave enough here is a link.

I have heard about it, there was an entire issue of the magazine from my German health insurance devoted to the topic a few years back - but like you said: YUCK... I just couldn't, sorry!!!

I totally agree with you, Yeuk!

I saw a documentary on TV a little while ago, as soon as I saw the lady but the glass to her lips......I nearly threw up.....funny thing was, she was so meticulous about having the cleanest glass she could find.

Well, urine is not really that "dirty"... from what I heard, it is actually virtually sterile (unless the person is sick) but maybe Penny knows? Either way it is mostly our upbringing that taught us that urine is eew...

Despite all what they say about the positive effects of the therapy, I must wonder - why consume what the body declared as waste?

As you just mentioned Gerrit, urine is sterile, but to me not very clean in that it is a waste from the body.
Urine is meant to flush out the system of toxins, urea ( produced when foods containing protein, such as meat, poultry, and certain vegetables, are broken down in the body. Urea is carried in the bloodstream to the kidneys and excreted.) It also consists of electrolytes such as sodium, chloride, potassium, and calcium ions, and other metabolites from the blood. There can also be some bacteria in it if one has an infection.

So...would I wanna drink straight urine?? NO! Would I wanna drink it after adding an enzyme to it? Not at all!! I find it hard sometimes to drink recycled water from the sewage system that they clean up.

Every year or so this topic shows up in the media, just llike now

From what I understand the practice is quite old and comes from India where poor nutrition and poor fresh water supplies are commonplace. In such an environment the question of toxins is probably less of an issue than the reuse of otherwise lost minerals minerals and other 'nutritional' compounds which are in urine, and it may be safer to drink your own urine than the water from the communal well.
Apparently the trick is not to use the first elimination of the day as after a nights rest this has a higher load of the unplesantly tasting compounds in it.

I came across this thread because I was looking at the structure of the board in more detail so that I could make an informed decision and vote.

Let me get this straight - so when kids eat their own buggers, they should not be discouraged, but encouraged???

I had some European friends who actually used to do this and swore by it. So, I put like one drop of my pee in a huge glass. I took a wee sip, and just could not swallow it. I had to face the fact that I'd rather die of just about anything than drink that glass of water, lol.
