Cow urine or gomutra or gaumutra is the urine from cows used for theurapetic purposes in Ayurveda. Biotechnology scientists at Junagadh Agriculture University in Gujarat claimed that cow urine can cure cancer such as those of mouth, lungs, kidney, skin, cervix and breast.
The research team led by assistant professors Shraddha Bhatt and Rukamsinh Tomar and another research person Kavita Joshi got the results after a year of experiments.
Shraddha Bhatt says, "This research was very risky because we directly experimented on cancer cells procured in a bottle. We found the exact quantity of cow urine required to kill particular number of cancer cells in a day" as quoted by Times Of India.
One of the members of the research team said that chemotherapy kills healthy cells while cow urine is known to only kill infected cells.
"There is a different process to treat cancer patients with the help of cow urine. Cow urine is procured and processed through distillation and given to the cancer patients during sunset", Dr. Shantharaman, founder, MD and senior Ayurvedic consultant told Boldsky exclusively.
He further added, " We use various herbs along with cow urine as per the requirements."
When asked what makes cow urine have medicinal properties, he said, "The humps that cows have receive medicinal properties from the sun's rays. This makes cow urine and dung contain medicinal properties which can kill all sorts of microbes as well as can cure cancer.
