urine superpowers by Thierry Berrod & Quincy Russel


Many of us are oblivious to the fact that our first months of life were actually spent swimming in urine. Indeed, the amniotic sac is made up of 80% urine, from the fetus and on average, the fetus releases two glasses of pee per day. During our lives, each of us will have produced 38.000 liters of urine, the equivalent of a large tanker truck. Despite the importance of this matter, urine remains taboo.

Today, we will go beyond this prohibition, release the cork, and take a wee look a tour pee that is more valuable than once thought: in medicine for healing, technology as a source of energy, raw material, and industrial fertilizers. Scientists discover that urine has fabulous curing properties, the police use it as a chemical fingerprint, some people drink it for health and longevity.

From China to America and Europe, a global scientific investigation on the many virtues and facets of urine.
