5 Things You Didnt Know About Pee

Hi every one,
Here are some 5 fun facts about pee.




We know that pee or urine is excreted from bladder.It has salts,sugars,chemical byproducts and potential toxins that the body cant breakdown.These excreted compounds are called metabolites which are leftover after the process of metabolism.




FUN FACT NO 1:-
                               As you can find anything on the internet,i am here to tell you that there is a database which can be found in your pee.Human body produces thousands of metabolites that are found in urine in different concentrations depending on the diet,environment and overall health.You can find thousands of metabolites in your urine from the database.

FUN FACT NO 2:-
                                 In mammals chemicals in urine can be used as biological communication between sexes.Just as an example i will tell you that exposure to the urine of the dominant male mouse causes new neuron to form in the brain of the female mouse and the urine in making the behavior of giraffes has been very well documented.
                   Male giraffe drinks the pee of female partner to test if she suits his taste.


FUN FACT NO 3:-
                               Some people born with genetic inability to metabolise branched amino acids suffer from maple syrup urine disorder.
 This disease is rare but is recognizable by pee that smells like pancakes.

FUN FACT NO 4:-
                               Our urine can reveal secrets about our health and diets.Urine analyses has been used for centuries to diagnose health problems.You may be familiar with test for drugs or pregnancy but recent work by scientist shows that it is possible to use ratios of metabolites to predict development of less obvious conditions like obesity.
FUN FACT NO 5:-
                             Human pee is putting fish on birth control.Recent studies shows that metabolites of the human birth control pills  that are excreted in urine are finding their way to waterways and building up in some fish species.
This exposure is contributing infertility in fish.There are also some documented cases on the US East Coast of male fish switching sexes after prolonged exposure to the synthetic hormone byproducts.
