This week Reactions is checking out the science to see if it's ok to pee in the ocean. Science to the rescue!

Peeing in the ocean: Many have done it, but few admit to it. Fortunately for beachgoers everywhere, our latest episode of Reactions explains why, from an environmental perspective, it is absolutely OK to pee in the ocean. [Correction: At 1:50, the narration and text should read "250 gallons" not liters.]

Special thanks to C&EN reporter Lauren Wolf for the video idea -- read her original C&EN blog post on peeing in the ocean here: http://cenblog.org/newscripts/2013/07...
