Cows urine.Is it safe?I find on the internet that it is highly anti cancerous and lots of health benefits.Ayurvedic sites and doctors recommend this.

No: This is a cruel prank. Any practitioner who offers this is a charlatan. This is doubly true if the practitioner is a "traditional ayurvedic practitioner". Cows were sacred in the old communities in what is now India, and when physicians had nothing, they offered cow urine as if it was magic. It's not. I'm sorry you were suckered. If it worked, they's serve it at the NIH and Putin would drink it. ...Read more

Adding more growth hormone can cause side effects instead of more height. ...Read more
