  • I've never hear this! Ew! The only thing I can think of why this could be untrue is if you're dehydrated. As most people know, you can easily tell you're hydration level by the color of your urine. The more yellow, the more dehydrated, so I would have to wonder if that would have a factor in the saltiness of it?

  • First of all even if it is true, you should never consume your own pee. Not only is it totally disgusting but it is very toxic and can make you very sick.
