LONDON - Hungry soldiers with limited water supplies and only dried food rations to eat could soon be using dirty swamp water or even urine to hydrate their food, New Scientist magazine reported Wednesday.
In a new technique, the dried rations are packed in a pouch with a special filter that removes 99.9999 percent of the bacteria and toxic chemicals from whatever liquid is used.
"The pouch - containing chicken and rice initially - relies on osmosis to filter the water or urine," according to New Scientist magazine.
