Do you think you could ever drink your own pee?

A very common survival technique, but one of the most disgusting, I think. You can do it, but only of absolutely necessary (because it increases the intensity of the toxins when it goes through your body for the second time). ... still YUK!

  • If I were otherwise risking death, sure. As for any other pee-drinking, I don't think so.

  • I would have to be dying of thirst. That has to be worse than drinking salt water!!

  • Only if it was for survival. It grosses me out just thinking about it.

  • I have to disagree with the poster about the toxin thing. Urine is made of excess, poop is waste. In other words, pee is beneficial stuff our bodies can't absorb like vitamins, white blood cells and water(and it does taste like lightly salted water). Poop is toxins, leftover food and whatever else we need to flush from our system. in cases of autoimmune disfunction it is quite beneficial besides being a tried and true survival technique. I bet you can guess my answer: yes, I would drink it if I had to.

  • Sounds like you know a whol lot about pee, anon. Maybe I don't write it in the correct terms, but this is what I remember from Discovery channel.
    I know, that it's been used a lot as a remedy. My parents were into it for a while. Reading books about it and, yes, drinking it. -So far I couldn't get myself to do it. But if I had to, I think I could do it.
    One thing I did though was use it for a wrat I had on my foot years ago. The book advised to put some pee on it in the evening, put on a cotton wool sock and leave it until the next morning. Maybe it was just me thinking it would work, BUT after lying down, the sport got really hot. I did so every evening until that nasty thing just fell off and never came back again. Nothing alse had helped until then.
