    So in other words, you pee on the food you grow so that you don't have to buy pesticides...I know that urine on the food is unhealthy...The food has to be washed... Then when it reaches the consumer, there is always the possibility that there will be a hint of remaining piss on the food. ..Therefore, I hope this food is for local consumption and not for global consumption...
