BEIJING, China (Reuters) -- More than three million Chinese drink their own urine in the belief it is good for their health, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Friday.

Participants at a recent seminar on the practice in the northeastern city of Shenyang were told that urine contains many active ingredients which strengthen the immune system, Xinhua said.

"Urine contains no bacterium and is more sanitary than blood," Yang Liansheng, a professor from the Liaoning Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine, was quoted as saying.

Engineer Zhu Jinfu told the seminar he had been drinking his own urine since he was 13 and had lived a healthy life for the last 58 years, Xinhua said.

Many of his forefathers had also lived to a ripe old age thanks to urine therapy, he said.

cyclic - you are taking the pi$$ out of us, are you ?

8th Jun 2001, 11:16
I have a cunninig plan.

We could all save our p1ss and label it for quality, quantity and time of production ie whether it's the morning after the night before etc.

Then when we've got a few gallons together, we ship it over to em for a few quid profit.

What do think?

8th Jun 2001, 15:22
That would be a very spirited gesture :)

Gee, this could be a quick way to wealth and riches. After a nite on the piss I can provide gallons of high quality piss. All I need to do is bottle it, ship it, sell it, and then make more......

I'm on my way to the bank for a business loan......

Be Careful its bad for your health

When I was in the Army we used to drink each others wee (and we were officers)

Anyway after a particularly boozy night in Birmingham, where 8 of us were downing pints in one and having wee chasers and playing "Who's wee is it anyway?" We left the pub I crossed the road for a piss and my mate who was following me - got run over by a car. He was okay after a couple of days. However my desire for urine has diminissed although I do have a ponchont for a bird with big tits and a golden shower.

Whoa there bigfella, whoa!

I don't think we really need to go into the in and outs of mess games :)

I spoke to a Russian orificer and he said because they were always so skint that they use the surivial staws ( the ones with a red end and green end ) to blow vodka where the sun dosn't shine. Apparently it gives you a faster hit that sniffing vodka.

I presume the air corp would know more about that sort of thing than a sapper.

What I can never understand is the mentality of someone in a bar saying 'I thay chaps, what ho, how's about we drink each other's wee, just like they do in the 'Harrow wee game'?'.

Same mentality invented 'Daisy Chains', the 'Biscuit Game' and 'Freckles' - all sort of Army/public school games. Clearly cold baths and regular beatings gets to you after a while! ;)

Of course Mess Games in the RAF are less scatological and far more adult...... :)

Urine, particularly the first urine of the day, is a good source of melatonin.

Eastern mystics have been drinking their own urine for centuries, and it is believed to be the melatonin content that gives the benefit. Gandhi drank his own urine, daily, throughout his life.

The benefit for pilots is that melatonin consumption in the morning is an effective way of dealing with the effects of jetlag.

The good news is that you don't have to drink a beaker full! Apparently, just a liqueur glass full is sufficient.

Some time ago, and in the interests of science, I thought I would give this a go.

Accordingly, a few tips:

1. Hold your nose.

2. Chill it in the fridge first. Warm urine is not very palatable.

Bottoms up!

In the second world war they use to collect all the piss so they could recover the antibiotics from it.

Any way if your living in London your drinking piss anyway. I seem to remember that every glass of water has on average been recycled 8 times.
Which is why they have a problem with low sperm counts in the southeast because the recycling process dosn't remove the female hormones.

Nil nos etc.

As one who (seemingly anyway) has had a somewhat sheltered life, could you explain
'Daisy Chains', the 'Biscuit Game' and 'Freckles'.

On the subject of wee, I've long had this fantasy concerning said substance and the sister-in-law!

The rules of Daisy Chain and the Biscuit Game I recall are explained in one of Stephen Fry's books.

In Daisy Chain, in the rarified atmosphere of an all male environment and a cramped dormitory full of sexually frustrated young men, I understand that each person takes hold of the willy of the person on the right/left as required, to form a chain, and then a session of communal to**ing takes place.

The Biscuit Game, again played in a communal male environment, requires all participants in the group to to** themselves simultaneously onto a digestive biscuit. Last one to come eats the bicky!

A former Para explained Freckles thus. A member of the group lays a turd on a plate, the group place their faces close to the faeces. A heavy object is dropped onto the turd causing a splatter effect. Contestant with the most freckles buys the next round.

I hope this will help our overseas readers to get a greater understanding of the English public school system and the military way of life.

11th Jun 2001, 03:12
Have pondered this one for much of the evening, and almost dare not ask!

Are the above mentioned activities the product of the imaginings of the average forth former..... or are they, erm..actual passtimes?

Somehow feel lucky not to have experience of either the British public school system, or the armed forces.

Will never regard the humble digestive the same way again.

11th Jun 2001, 12:45
Personally, I reckon three million punters ARE wrong. Yick!!

11th Jun 2001, 13:24

You wouldn't believe what the paras can get up to.

I saw some guys from 15 para as a form of sport with the recruits.
They stripped them down and bound there hands at one end of a rugby pitch with a pond at the other. Then wedged a strip of bog paper between the cheeks of there arse. At the shout of go the piece of bog paper was set on fire and bets were placed on who would make it to the pond in time.

Aparently this is called the dance of the flaming arseholes.

It is the pill actually. Sewage treatment does not remove the relevant hormone so just gets dropped back into the river where it is doing a good job at buggering up the environment. Apparently it is an endocrine disrupter and is turning all the fish into hermaphrodites. Eventually it is removed at the next intake for water treatment. There is more, but trust me when I say you do not want to know.

Local story in the North East is that the water for Sunderland is recycled more than the water for Newcastle, so that all the men in Sunderland have lower sperm counts than the true Geordies. Haway the lads :)!

Little sis is a sewage engineer ( its no wonder we can't marry her off) London water doesn't touch the river it goes straight back into the supply. Which is why it tastes F*cking awful. But you are quite correct that it is the pill which cocks things up.

But thats somethings else that i have learn't off prrune, Macum's have a lower sperm count than male Geordies. But then again most macum females have a higher sperm count than the blokes in the NE

Your little sis is a braver person than me. I spent three years dealing with malfunctioning sewage works, which is why I chose to specialise in water supply :).

Some of London's water goes into aquifers for storage and recovery. Gather the same happens in some dry parts of the USA. The contraversial problem is whether it really needs treating first, as sewage treatment is just an acceleration of natural processes.

Cannot prove the low sperm count story, but would love it to be true. As for Makum females, the prototypes for Biffa Bacon's 'Mutha' :)?

14th Jun 2001, 18:11
But we do all agree though, that the soft southern bastards are jafa's though?

And even a Makum has more prowess in bed.

Hi Cyclic Hotline,

For a brief period in the 70's Oz had a somewhat extraordinary Prime Minister called Gough Whitlam.

Gough was once breakfasting with a similarly ranking gentleman from the sub-continent who informed Gough that, 'yes, this is a glass of urine and I have it every morning.'

Gough allegedly whispered to an aide, 'I've heard of getting on the piss early, but this is ridiculous.'

Best wishes,

There is an anecdote dating from the 50's about an Indian politician who was well known for this practice. When he made a state visit to the UK he was invited to a state dinner, and as he did not drink alcohol he was served with apple juice, with obvious possibilities for confusion.

On the negative side, urine is a waste product and as such is (very slightly) toxic. Of course it may be less toxic than chinese river water.

15th Jun 2001, 03:36
Exactly Mycroft, the point most have missed-it is excreta, waste, and that is why he body must get rid of it.
If you consume this waste product on a regular basis, you cannot be doing yourself reabsorbing such material.
If you want melatonin(it is supposed to be anti-aging)-don't take the piss, take a tablet!

17th Jun 2001, 23:44

Given the sheer delights(!) of 'Daisy Chains', the 'Biscuit Game' and 'Freckles' as explained earlier, and assuming that "pelican" is an activity of similar moral and intellectual rectitude, I'm eager to have the full details of how to participate in the game...
purely in the interest of science you understand.

At long last a logical explanation for the missing crew of the Mary Celeste, they were playing daisy chains, and one of the salt's at the end of the chain went over the side, I understand the naval version of this game has a slight variation on the one described here, it involves, eerrr, a different sexual act, much favoured by matelots. :)
