Previously, it was thought that urine was sterile when expelled from the body, and only got contaminated with germs after a couple of minutes. Now we know that it is, in fact full of germs, some of which can be harmful right from the time it is expelled. On top of that, there is probably a reason your body expelled it in the first place, so you really shouldn't be drinking your urine unless it is filtered and/or distilled. Filtered urine is really just yellow saltwater.
