(Scroll down for video) Some people will do everything in their power to keep illnesses away.
While many people eat healthy foods or take vitamin supplements, others drink cow urine to stay healthy.
A growing number of Hindu worshipers in India, believe that drinking fresh cow urine helps prevent cancer and other illnesses.
Hindus believe that cows are sacred animals and some claim that its urine has divine healing properties.
Jairam Singhal, 42, is a firm believer in the health benefits and has been drinking it for over a decade.
“I had diabetes, but since I’ve started drinking cow urine, my levels of diabetes have been under control,” he said.
He is now looking into opening a business to sell cow urine for those people, who are unable to come to him for a fresh glass of urine.
“We can manufacture herbal powdered medicine, eye drops, medicines for stomach ailments, toothpaste, and bathing soaps among other things, from cow urine,” Singhal said.
In the northern Indian city of Agra, dozens of people gather each morning to have a fresh glass of cow urine.
“Many people come here, and the number of people drinking cow urine has been increasing. We all gather in the morning and drink fresh cow urine,” Singhal said.
Singhal explains that in order for the urine to be effective, the cow has to be a virgin. It cannot be taken from a cow that has given birth to a calf.
He also said that the urine collected just before sunrise has the best healing effect.
