Humans have officially gone too far
If you don’t think too hard…
The common defense of drinking your own pee for your health is the result of complete scientific misunderstanding. Arguments in favor of the practice claim that the fact that it’s already been digested makes it easier to absorb vitamins and minerals that are excreted through your urine —and that might be true — but here’s the thing: if the vitamins are excreted in your urine, it means that you don’t need them.
PSA: The human body is pretty amazing at figuring out what it needs and what it doesn’t. You are not smarter than your body in that sense.
What else have you got?
It’s a “hexagonal water.” Ah, but what they clearly didn’t know was that “corporations made up this term [hexagonal water] to scam people into buying their water” (aka nothing, it means nothing).
One more favorite?
That urea is an ingredient in infertility drugs and an estrogen supplement called Premarin — that’s actually true. What that use doesn’t equate to, though, is drinking your own pee on a regular basis. The reason that urine from pregnant horses is used in things like Premarin is because it contains plenty of estrogen to help women going through menopause. It’s not for the urine, it’s for the hormones — that’s just an easy (and kind of inhumane) way to get them.
Nothing. That’s what.
So, yeah, at the end of the day, there is no actual, scientific evidence to show that urine has any reliable or predictable health benefits whatsoever. I hate to break it to you all, but they even say peeing on jellyfish stings isn’t a good idea (it can actually make it more painful), despite the long held belief that a little urine would cure that right up.
