I would think the issues of Heavy Metals in our waste would be the no-no factor.

That's what I've always heard as the reasoning behind it not being used as fertilizer.

Has anyone used or studied the use of such practices. If one can collect and harvest free ureas in the form of urine, then why not collect it and use it. For whatever use!! I understand that everything has to be regulated by the EPA or FDA and other regulatory agencies. Organics still falls under the guidelines of your licenses.
If all I am going to get is comedy then I guess my mind is a bit more far advanced than most.
As far as urine as a fertilizer is concerned, I like your thinking. However as I'm sure you're aware, diets of different types of people can be quite different from one another. For example, a meat-eating, beer drinking indivual would likely have vastly different urine than a vegetarian. Relative pH levels of human urine cannot be relied upon to be consistant from person to person. every diet is different.
However, there IS a very smart, productive destination I know of for (any mammal) urine. That destination would be the top of your backyard compost pile!

At the commune, it's my job to urinate on the compost pile. We use it on the garden.

I pee in the tomatoes all the time.

Thanks for the responses.
I figured this thread was pissed on and swept under the rug as most is.
I was curious as to Cultural practices of the Asian, English, Russian garden's have performed this practice for centuries. I guess from the responses earlier, the member's thought that the ideal was snake oil.
I thank you for all the responses as I will continue to do my own research and maybe find a way to produce another natural product for commercial sales.
