I have to draw the line. And besides being gross and unsanitary, it’s worthless.
A growing cult of Hindu worshippers in India claim that drinking fresh cow urine will help cure them of all diseases – including cancer.
The Hindu believers regard the cow as a holy animal and say her urine has divine healing properties.
Jairam Singhal, 42, has been drinking cow pee for over a decade and was keen to testify to its health benefits.
‘I had diabetes, but ever since I have started drinking cow urine, my diabetes levels have been under control,’ Jairam said.
Followers of the cult claim cow urine can successfully be used to combat cancer, diabetes, tumours, tuberculosis, stomach problems and much more.
They also claim that drinking cow pee is the only effective solution for treating baldness.
So, you see a few red flags here… “natural”, “holy”, and the unproven claim that it can work on a variety of unrelated situations. Nothing can do it. When there is a hyped claim to “cure all”, it cures NOTHING. Besides, people. This is disgusting. Sorry for the image below. Just imagine it’s beer.
Here is the American Cancer Society on Urotherapy.
Don’t. Just don’t.
