Been a Part of Someone's Urine Just Weeks Ago!" [click on image to enlarge]

Host Hank Green (no pun intended) realizes that he may have messed up your day with this - but this information is mission-critical for a developed society...

Humans have always peed and pooped, but where it goes after we've done our business has changed a lot.

In fact: The water you just drank, may well have been a part of someone's urine just weeks ago!

There's no escape, really...SciShow video explains!

pasqualie: its all treated

even if you drank out of a river if its clean enough or a lake, animals and fish are peeing and pooping in it anyways. you might get the odd kid who pees in the stream up stream as well.

its treated and probably 98 percent of the other stuff is pulled out and isolated and sold off back to industry as chemicals. similar to garbage, cities pull out plastic and aluminum and other things and sell it back to industry. key is bacteria count, its why chlorine is added.
