I'm told that caffeine is a diuretic (is alcohol too?) and thus can cause
dehydratiom. Does this mean that if beer and coffee were the only
available drink then we would die of thirst?
Could you survive by drinking your own urine? I know that in survival
situations this practice is not recommended, but whenever I've had a few
drinks of either beer or cofee my own urine _seems_ pretty clear.
