    Morarji Desai, the Indian leader from 1977-1979, even was interviewed on ABC News and 60 Minutes about his repulsive habit! In the ABC interview with Barbara Walters, Desai spoke at length about how he considered urine therapy a “cure for almost all diseases.” He claimed the practice could even help with cataracts “if you catch them at the beginning and continue washing your eyes with it.” On 60 Minutes with Dan Rather, he proclaimed urine therapy the “perfect” treatment for the millions of Indians who could not afford professional care at that time!

    Despite what men such as Bear Grylls and Moraji Desai may tell you, consuming your own pee has no known health benefit. Yes, urine is 95% water, but the other 5% contains substances that are harmful for you - which is exactly why your body is expelling them in the first place! In fact, even if you are trapped with no access to water, it still might be a bad idea to drink urine. Survival experts are split on this issue. You can look at the pros and cons, and decide for yourself.

    He is an example about how crazy can be a PM?...Can you imagine that he is the same PM who has leaked the secret information that RAW gathered to Pakistan just to make himself more friendly to their leadership...So if he can do such crazy things...drinking urine is not unexpected at all...

    He drank his urine and lived till a 100. Want to know if eating tiger penis has worked for the Chinese or is just causing the extinction of that beautiful creature.

    Uh... no we don't. :lol:

    Eating cats and dogs is currently illegal in China.

    And I dare you to go to a restaurant in China and ask to eat a baby. You'll be locked in prison for the rest of your life. :rofl:
