Urine is a water based solution produced in the kidneys and is excreted with dissolved solutes which are frequently harmful or unwanted metabolic biproducts. It is a useful bodily fluid for professional diagnosis and/or personal management of diet since it can be analysed with both sophisticated chemical assays or simple physical observations. Culturally, urine has a negative connotation amongst most individuals as it is associated with uncleanliness and the process of urination is deemed private. Evolutionarily speaking, repulsion with urine may be beneficial and perhaps protect the individual from unwanted pathogenic transmission
