An MP has outrageously claimed that drinking cow urine “cures all infectious diseases” and even went as far as to say the liquid saved her from Covid.
Pragya Singh Thakur, a BJP politician representing the Indian city of Bhopal, left the country baffled when she said there was scientific research to back up the bonkers claims, Lokmat reports.
“So many researchers say cow urine is an antibiotic,” she added.
“After research claims, we found that drinking cow urine cures all infectious diseases.”
When pressed about the study, she claimed it was done by scientists in Germany.
The bizarre statements are not supported in any widely accepted research and Thakur has come under fire for potentially endangering lives with her advice.
She told the Hindustan Times: “I consume cow urine daily and it is a kind of acid which purifies my body.
“It also purifies the lungs and saves me from Covid-19 infection. I don’t take any medicine against Covid but I am safe.
“No Covid patient’s health will worsen because of drinking cow urine.
“If someone wants to take it they can come to me and I shall prescribe the required dose of urine that is needed.”
Previously, the urine-lover sparked ridicule when she said the cow-wee concoction cured her cancer.
She has recommended the drink to the people of India and claimed she conducted experiments with the urine on herself.
“I wish health to everyone and this is why I recommend it,” she added.

“I want all to be safe like me – I have not prescribed anything unresearched like pig or bull’s urine.”
Thakur helpfully added that when preparing the cow urine, it should come from indigenous cows who have only eaten forest grass.
The urine should then be filtered with a piece of cotton cloth, she said.
