Cup of urine a day keeps ailments at bay

Thu Sep 2,11:11 AM ET

BANGKOK (AFP) - Drinking urine can eliminate sinus trouble, turn grey hair black and even cure cancer, a Thai academic said, citing a study of local Buddhists who engage in the unorthodox practice.

Ratree Cheepudomwit, of the Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine Development Department, said hundreds of urine drinkers attested that consuming a daily cup worked wonders for their overall health and helped slow the ageing process.

She said that in June she queried 250 members of Santi Asoke, a strict indigenous Buddhist movement believed to have thousands of followers, and 204 respondents said they had learned from ancient Buddhist manucripts that drinking one's urine improved health.

"Of the respondents, 87 percent confirmed that it had head-to-toe benefits for them, including for example reduction of dandruff, grey hair, sinus problems and cancer," Ratree told AFP.

The medical elixir was not easy on everyone's system, as about one in 10 urine drinkers suffered diarrhea afterwards, but the practice should not be viewed with disgust, she said.

"Other groups of people who drank urine were Buddhist monks who practised in accordance to scriptures which are more than 2,500 years old," she said.

I've heard that after banging a skanky ho, you should piss into your cupped hands and wash your willy in your urine. It keeps you from getting warts.

It all depends where the piss is coming from.

If its flowing out of a nice PIE, I'd probably drink it

Not me... I'd wait for the flowing to stop, then I'd eat the pie.

And as for the Tai suggestion of drinking it:

I give it 11 out of 10 pukes.

That is pretty nasty indeed!

Thing is, just about all survival books say to NEVER under any circumstances drink your own urine. It's just a bad thing.

Beside being disgusting, this fails the common sense test. Urine is full of crap your body is trying to get rid of. Why the heck would you want to put something back into your body it wants to get rid of.

You guys are just racist bigots, you just don't want to accept eastern medicine is far more advanced then Western.
Trust me, if piss was good for you, your body wouldn't get rid of it. We're talking about the waste product from cells. This means poison to your body. When you drink something, it goes back into your blood stream after hitting the stomach.
So your kidneys get to process the same thing again? How does that help you?
I think drinking piss will give you worse breath.

In other news today, Thai officials have reported that the sewer systems all over Thailand are failing to meet the demands of the burgeoning populace and have been running at emergency over-capcity levels for several months. Residents are urged to cut back however possible.
