Urinating in Ocean... Not a Bad Thing, Actually!

If you have ever been concerned about peeing in the ocean, worry no more. The American Chemical Society has released a report saying not only is it harmless to pee in the ocean, it's actually good for marine life. The ACS explains it's ok because urine is mostly water, and also contains sodium, chloride and potassium ions.

Sea water also contains these ions, though in different concentrations, and this means that urine won't dramatically alter sea water in its vicinity. Additionally, urine contains nitrogen, which combines with the water to produce ammonium, which feeds ocean plant life.
