How much pee in the pool is fatal?

You may have known that pee combined with chlorine makes a toxic byproduct. So peeing in a chlorine pool actually is unhealthy. But how unhealthy? Like, could it kills you?

The good scientists at arstechnica tried to figure that out. Here’s what they calculated:
If you and three million other people could get at this pool and unload your pee into it before your bodies melted, before the crowd crushed you to death, and before you drowned from the massive tidal wave of pee... yes, you could feasibly die of cyanogen chloride poisoning originating from chlorinated water and pee. 
Wow. I'm only swimming in lakes and oceans from now on. Oh wait, fish pee... darn it!

Who does peeing in the pool hurt? EVERYONE!

I never thought it was THAT big of a deal to pee in the pool. Not that I ever did it! 

But a new study finds that peeing in the pool IS a big deal if the pool uses chlorine and other chemicals. Apparently the uric acid in urine mixes with chlorine to make a two new chemicals: cyanogen chloride and thrichloramine.

And guess what? Those two chemicals are bad for your heart, lungs, and central nervous system.

So I have two words of advice to anyone who’s reading this while swimming: HOLD IT!
