Daily Mail reported that experts have warned against drinking dog or human urine popularly known as the Urine therapy.
Joy McCarthy, a certified nutritionist told Allure that, “Urine is mostly made up of water, lots of urea, creatinine, various electrolytes, uric acid, trace proteins, and low levels of antibodies and enzymes.”
Urine can have a terrible impact on the health because of the toxins and acids they contain, experts have warned.
McCarthy said drinking urine from dogs poses more dangers to the human health because they contain Herbicides.
“Herbicides have been detected in dog’s urine, likely from herbicide-treated lawns, antibiotics, and hormones, so I really don’t know that it’s the safest choice,” she said.
She says that drinking urine from an animal could be an unsafe route for the body because what the liquid might contain.

“We have more waste in our systems today than we did thousands of years ago.”
She said consuming body waste does the body more harm than good.
