One of the Indian Primier Mirar Ji Desai was famous to drink his urine. He used to argue that it enhaces the lfie span. Did US authroities know this argument of Mirar Ji Desai? Probably not. Other wise they could have avoided this big flush
PORTLAND, OREGON: Call it the big flush.
Public health officials say, however, that urine is sterile in healthy people and that the urine in the reservoir was so diluted _ perhaps a half pint in millions of gallons _ that it posed little risk.
Some people in the city, in the suburbs and around the world called the flush an overreaction, especially since animals such as ducks contribute waste routinely and, sometimes, die in the water.
“More than 1 billion people worldwide do not have reliable access to clean drinking water, and here we are tossing away nearly 8 million gallons of water just to appease the ignorant residents who believe their tap water will otherwise turn yellow,” read one comment posted on The Oregonian’s Website.
