Urine Drinkers Lift Lid On Alternative Lifestyle
Proponents of an online ‘urine therapy’ craze have lifted the lid on their alternative lifestyle - and why they believe drinking their pee is the elixir of youth. The practice of drinking your own urine and rubbing it into your skin is believed by some to cure diseases, boost energy and even reverse ageing. The centuries old fringe following has picked up steam recently in the US, where health bloggers have promoted its purifying benefits to their legions of followers. The logic is that urine contains compounds that can be reabsorbed to improve the body’s ability to fight disease and provide other detoxifying effects.
