Botttoms up: Is it safe to drink your own urine?

//yellinglizard.com/wp-content/urine_small.jpgIn response to yet another question brought up in class and the continuing search for the untarnished truth, I invite you to explore the Wikipedia entry on urophagia as it is a good starting point for the issues and claims associated with the benefits and disadvantages of downing a glass of your body’s own brew.

You may also want to check out the Health Library factsheet, an article of Scientific American that debunks the myth that urinating on a jellyfish sting will cure it, and this site on urine therapy that lists the contents of urine (and has an interesting graphic :D).
