RE: [pct-l] More Filter Issues
With the rule of thumb being, "when you're lost at sea, drink fresh water
first, urine next, and sea water only as a last resort", it would seem that if a
filter for urine (or sea water) could be devised, every boat out there would
carry one. I don't believe the technology exists.

On a related note (and please take this seriously), what are the effects of
filtering urine in an emergency situation? Does it remove taste and odor?
[Cringing to type this - yuk]. Many realize that urine can be a safe means of
hydrating oneself in a "no other choice" predicament. I'm not going to try it
(so save your invitation), but it is something that I wonder if a filter will
effect much. [I can imagine a few readers running to try this now].
