Survivorman Vs. Bear Grylls on drinking urine
Why not just use a solar still or distill it on your stove/fire.Urine is a waste fluid that is meant to remove impurities from the body. It's certainly not fit to ingest in its raw state. Now, if you were in the worst possible survival situation and you had the means to purify it, I suppose it could be recycled although I am no expert on the subject. I would rough filter it as best as possible. I would boil it. I would dissolve some iodine tablets in it and allow it to sit. Then I would filter it through my hand held Katadyne filter pump. I might even boil it one more time. Of course, by then I would have died of thirst.
Millions of Japanese drink it daily for health reasons, it's quite the fad. While it's is not nessarly good for you, it will also not hurt you and there are some rehydration aspects to it to think about. I guess it depends on how thirsty you are?I was told that drinking urine was bad for you. i think this is a mixed subject for many people.
