It took seven years and 20 researchers, but a team at the University of Alberta have finally, using all available state-of-the-art equipment, figured out the chemical composition of human urine. This also means there's a good chance that somebody has replied to the question "so what do you do?" with "I've been looking at urine for the past seven years."
According to David Wishart, the senior scientist on the project, medical textbooks list anywhere from 50-100 chemical compounds in urine, and standard urine tests (like when you pee into a cup to test for drug use) only check for six or seven compounds. But this study used nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography to find over 3,000 different chemical compounds.
Even better, the project has resulted in a freely available database of all these compounds, which will be updated as new technology reveals more compounds. Here's the description, from the database:
There's lots of potential reasons why we'd want to know exactly what's going on in our urine; it can help us understand how our diet affects our waste management system, and how our bodies process food and liquid. And once we've figured that stuff out, we can use simple, non-invasive urine tests to check for all kinds of illnesses that might typically require a less pleasant blood test or other kind of test. Wishart notes that urine tests could be used to test for different kinds of cancer, for celiac disease, pneumonia, and lots more.
"Urine is an incredibly complex biofluid. We had no idea there could be so many different compounds going into our toilets," said Wishart pithily.
The study was published today in the journal PLoS One.
A persnickety pee informative article, how nice!
Summer. I agree that Marvin`s posting is cool, last friday I got audi since I been bringin in $5868 this-past/month and more than ten thousand this past month. with-out any question its the easiest-work Ive had. I started this 7-months ago and immediately made more than $87... per-hr. I use this web-site, ......mac22.com

urine it can help us understand how our diet affects our waste management system,
Jct: People ask if urine is that beneficial, why are the kidneys excreting it? For topical use. Liquid flesh to disinfect and rebuild cuts. When a meteorite hit StarShip Enterprise, repair materials had to be patched both inside and out. How did they get the materials out? Jeffries Tubes with doors on inside and outside to the get the patch materials outside. Why wouldn't God offer a way to get repair materials outside? Ain't God one Grand Engineer to have made our bodyships as functional?!! I'm on the 53rd day of my urine fast. Youtube my reports Cure-All Fast after 28-, 35, 40, 50-days with report 56-day coming up Wednesday. With vitamins, minerals, hormones, enzymes, stem cells, DNA, and 3,000 other powerful chemical components packaged into one potent medicinal elixir that truly merits the title "Miracle Water." Anyone who thinks such a powerful concoction is waste better think again!
I suspect you do not share a lot of kisses from your spouse, during this fast, rofl.
