Female Urine - Bad for the garden?

Asked November 27, 2014, 6:34 AM EST

It's often said that when collecting/using urine for the compost heap etc you shouldn't use Femaie because of the hormones etc.
Is this just an 'old boys club' response or has there been any actual studies on it...or at least has somebody looked at the data if there is any?
