I drink cow urine daily – Bollywood star Kumar


 Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has revealed that he drinks cow urine daily , joining a growing number of Indians who believe it has medicinal benefits – including against the coronavirus .


Kumar is considered a staunch supporter of Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi ’ s party, which has earmarked millions of dollars for research into products using bovine waste to cure diseases like diabetes and cancer .


There is no comprehensive scientific evidence of any medicinal benefits, but several politicians from Modi ’ s right -wing ruling party have advocated using the dung and urine to cure coronavirus.


The 53-year - old actor was promoting his appearance on a show with British television adventurer Bear Grylls, in which they drink tea made from elephant dung in an Indian tiger reserve.


“ I was too excited to be worried. I have cow urine because of ayurvedic reasons every day, so that was okay, ” Kumar said on a social media live chat posted Thursday.


Many Hindus believe cows are sacred and drink its urine for medicinal benefits.


Modi’ s government created a ministry of ayurveda and yoga , with Modi suggesting in June that yoga could help create a “ protective shield” against the novel coronavirus .


COVID -19 has infected 4. 6 million people in India and killed 76, 000.
