Urine for a treat!

India's Hindu nationalist movement has come up with a fun use for a cow movement: cow urine cola. fizzy, yet. *shudder*

And south of the isthmus, down Bolivia way...

A Bolivian woman has died from an injection of urine allegedly administered by her friend as a form of health therapy, a prosecutor said Tuesday.



I have nowhere to go with that story- just another pee story in the news. I thought you should know.

h/t to Lin know.

I had a great-aunt who drank every day's first urine. She was convinced it kept her healthy and her immune system running smoothly...blech!

People are weird.

Christina - Um, your body sends it away as, uh, waste-- why would you want to re-introduce it?

I guees one could say that it IS filtered... And with that now I'm off filtered-water for good.

ExACTly! But there was no reasoning with her. It was just one of those old-wives'-tales that so many of my German relatives believed in. Like going outside with wet hair would give you meningitis. Or not wearing slippers in the house would cause you to catch cold. Stuff I rolled my eyes over but learned never to disagree with!
