Sweat and urine have many similarities: we secrete sweat, but we excrete urine.

Sweat is the body's way of regulating two things: temperature, and salt levels. A thin layer of liquid evaporates on the skin, helping us to cool down when we get too hot. The same fluid releases excess sodium out of the body, which is why sweat can smell salty.

Urine, on the other hand, is produced as part of our cells' energy cycle. It consists mostly of water, plus soluble crystals of waste material: mostly a chemical called urea, which helps carry excess nitrogen out of the body, and which gives urine its name.
