    Default Got an illness? Drink cow urine to cure it away!

    NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A hardline Hindu organization, known for its opposition to "corrupting" Western food imports, is planning to launch a new soft drink made from cow's urine, often seen as sacred in parts of India.

    The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), or National Volunteer Corps, said the bovine beverage is undergoing laboratory tests for the next 2 to 3 months but did not give a specific date for its commercial release.

    The flavor is not yet known, but the RSS said the liquid produced by Hinduism's revered holy cows is being mixed with products such as aloe vera and gooseberry to fight diseases such as diabetes and cancer.

    Many Hindus consider cow urine to have medicinal properties and it is often drunk in religious festivals.

    The organization, which aims to transform India's secular society and establish the supremacy of a Hindu majority, said it had not decided on a name or a price for the drink.

    "Cow urine offers a cure for around 70 to 80 incurable diseases like diabetes. All are curable by cow urine," Om Prakash, the head of the RSS Cow Protection Department, told Reuters by phone.

    They call it Mellow Yellow?
    Just imagine the TV commercials they'll make advertising this product.

    How exactly could cow urine cure diabetes?
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Well... I know for a fact that estrogen is extracted from horse urine to make the pill estradiol. But I've also heard of people drinking their own urine for medicinal purposes.

    I don't understand how someone can so boldly say "It DOES cure diabetes". If it was a true miracle-cure, people would be rushing farms and doctors would be investing into it and giving it to patients, ne? I can't imagine anything less being done if it's a true cure.

    Well, cows are sacred in India, so does that mean. . .

    Looks like Hindus aren't the only ones who are into consuming waste:

    And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man...Then said I, Ah, Lord God, behold, my soul hath not been polluted: for from my youth even till now have I not eaten of that which dieth of itself...Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cows dung for mans dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith (Ezekiel 4:12-15).
