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.
there's a bunch of sites with information about piss drinking monks
they have their reasons, however, I won't try it on account that it sounds pretty nasty, no matter the benefits (plus I don't have sinus problems, I don't care my hair might turn grey.... because I'm going bald, and I don't believe my urine can cure cancer) :new_all_c

It's simple: drinking your own piss is so horrible, that afterwards grey hair, sinus problems, and even cancer don't seem so bad.

even if drinking urine did have health benefits, NOT drinking urine is its own reward.
