Drinking Urine Not Recommended, No.

There is no sound medical evidence to support drinking urine. As

a point of interest, there are those who do drink their own urine

and claim it has health benefits. Additionally, in an emergency

situation, it's possible to drink one's urine as a temporary means

of holding off dehydration- though this cannot be done indefinitely

and certainly is not recommended.

Urine is waste the body doesn't want.

Urine only contains only about 5% of Urea (the actual waste

product your body produces) the rest is mainly just water, so it is

safe to drink in case of extreme emergencies, and it may have to be

forced into you, and you should avoid drinking it anyway.
