I was going through some of my friends discussions I think they were from another Country. and the said somthing about urine and what it is good for. I have heard that its makes your skin soft. They say to bath in it. I would never do that, image what you would smell like, I don't think so. and then they said they Cow's urine is used to cure Cancer I have never heard of that but you hear a lot of things, here from people all over the world. Now that is gross. But they seem to think that it works for curing Cancer. I don't know how true it is but. that would be great if it did cure Cancer. Have you ever heard of such? I haven't never in my life. My father did of Cancer.

I heard of and seen that on TV, in some Asian countries like Taiwan. Some claim it is part of traditional chinese medicine. I don't believe that. Even chinese medicine has to have clinical evidence. Urine contains all the toxins excreted from our bodies so that is really nonsense.

Yes I have heard that in my own coutry. They also say that your urine can heal your pimples. If you have a pimples they say, just wash your urine to your face! Gee! I wouldn't do that no matter what. I guess it was the ancestors who made us believe that. I don't believe it anyway.

I've never heard that cow's urine cures cancer, but I have heard that human (baby) urine will get your skin soft, and gorgeous. I've never tried it (nor would I try it because that's pretty gross) but if that's what they want to do... then more power to them.

I have heard a lot of things about urine. i heard that baby's urine if you take a diaper or anything that they pee on and rub it on your face it cures acne!!! and also that peeing on a wound makes it heal faster. I have never heard of it making your skin soft or curing cancer though. You never know.

There are some stories going around that urine can really cure. But for me, I will not at all drink urine even if it can make me well of any ailment, even if my skin would become soft, whatever, I won't drink urine even if it be my own urine.

it is very hard to say if there is any substance to those claims or not,iwould not think that there were.however tribel people in 3rd world countries have used gross and unheard of things that have worked for them for centuries. that are just being discovered by modern medicine. so who is to say?

I've heard of it and no, it's not 'scientific' as someone else said. The whole purpose of urine is to remove extraneous minerals and vitamins from your body that it doesn't need. Build up of uric acid, a main component in urine, actually leads to health problems.
