When temperature falls it is said that the substance excreted most will be water because a person doesn't sweat in the cold hence the water in the body needs an outlet to escape. However it is also known that the metabolic activities are higher in the cold therefore there would be higher salt intake as well. How would the salts taken in escape from the body if not through the urine? A person doesn't lose the smaller amount of salts through sweating either. How do these salts escape?

    Urine is salty.
