We've tackled this question on the naked scientists radio show (http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/shows/2006.02.05.htm) recently. Scroll down to the "your questions section" - it's the second question.

Urine is quite a good fertiliser rich in nitrogen and particularly good for getting green leaved plants to grow quickly.  It also helps vegetable matter to decay quickly and is very useful on compost heaps.

You should not eat polos,when you have finished them,the hole is still left.and where is that hole,in your stomach,it doesnt take a gastric surgeon to work out that a stomach full of holes is bad for you.
