Best Answer

Urine contains all the body's toxins that the kidneys filter out of the blood. So it is indeed harmful to reintroduce toxins to your system.

Is drinking your own urine dangerous?

actually, your urine is sterile until it reaches the urinary meatus and exits your body. it's not recommended to drink your own urine, but if you are in an absolute survival situation and have no alternative, you can drink your own urine to sustain yourself.


Is it wrong to drink your urine?

You should not drink your urine for health reasons. For instance if you drink your own urine you can have side affects or die from deadly substances contained in it.However, it is possible to drink it still. If absolutely necessary you can drink your own piss and survive on it for two to three days if in a desert or such. I have also witnessed a man surviving on his own piss by heating out the salt and other bad substances and just drinking whatever water was left.


Why is drinking your own urine good for the body?

It isn't good for the body. It is only good if you don't have water to drink to keep you alive.


Can you get sick from drinking urine?

Ingesting urine is only guaranteed safe if it is your own. If you're drinking somebody else's, then there's a chance that you're getting toxins from the wrong section of the stream. It is really not advised to drink someone else's urine due to the fact that the chemicals, enzymes, and hormones in one's own urine is tailored to the person excreting it. If you're drinking someone else's, then it's like taking somebody's medication regime for whatever reason. The ratios of the chemicals involved aren't proportioned for you. Now, if you should decide to drink another's urine during Urolagnia play, then you will get less of their toxins and hormones if you only ingest midstream from a healthy partner. Urine shouldn't have too many toxins to harm you unless there is something wrong with the health or diet of the host. Yes you can get sick from drinking urine. Urine is a waste product of the body. Your body let's it out for a reason.


Is drinking your own blood bad for you?

Drinking your own blood is very bad for you because your stomach acids can't break it down so it rots in the stomach and gives you stomache sores cousing you to vomit That's not true for me. All I drink is blood. Even at school. Everyone is creeped out by it, but I have to.

Can you get sick from drinking your own urine?

No humans would not get sick from drinking their own urine. my little brother did it when he was one and he didnt get sick. Actually, it is entirely possible to get sick from drinking urine (yours or others). Urine contains waste products from the body which are being purposely excreted, and re-introducing them is unhealthy. However, consuming small amounts is generally very unlikely to cause problems. In fact, in certain cases where lack of water is of a life-threatening concern, consumption of urine can help keep one hydrated. Overall, though, urine is a body WASTE, and is not beneficial in any way.
