Would you eat food cooked in your own urine? Food scientists working for the US military have developed a dried food ration that troops can hydrate by adding the filthiest of muddy swamp water or even peeing on it.[continued]

I read that! However they don't recommend using urine because urea is a small enough to fit through the filters and can cause kidney damage... but it probably says that in the article. Amazing what they can do nowadays though isn't it? Like the 3 year sandwich.
