Can it harm drinking your own urine

Dr. Natasha :

no

Dr. Natasha :

It will not cause you any harm

It may taste weird

Your urine should NOT sit out at room temperature for more than a couple of hours prior to consumption because it can get bacteria in it

Hi doctor Natasha, you didn't
Answer my question on how to make my urine a stronger taste
I am not sure I can answer this question- it is not something that we generally promote- drinking urine.
You asked me if it was safe. I said yes.
But i cannot tell you how to make it stronger or alter the taste.
I hope I am explaining my self well
But if you know anything about cooking, then I am sure you know how to reduce a sauce. Same applies.

Thankyou Dr Natasha
I understand that in order to make urine darker and stronger certain foods should be eaten and sauces added to foods
Good luck

Well Dr Natasha. I really enjoy the taste of warm urine
When it tastes strong, and that always
Coincides withe urine being darke
Whilst I fully support that you donot promote urine drinking
It really couldn't hurt to give me a little advice on the foods most likely to
Thankyou Dr Natasher
David- I cannot do that.
