What a question :!:

well, I am not sure.
I believe it is sterile when it is fresh.
And there have been reports of people drinking it to survive.

We had to take a survival test and I answered yes to drinking pee to survive and got it wrong, it is your body's waste so I think you can drink some of it but it isn't good for you and it isn't going to help you survive. Drink bird blood instead.

I remember this debated long ago... The answer is it's safe but:
-drink immediatly because bacteria develop very fast in it
-don't drink often, and certainly not if you do not have another source of water and drink all and only that, toxins are in non dangerous amount in normal urine, but if you recycle it too much the levels increase beyond the ability for a human body to deal with them
