You would say bathing in cow dung is a sure-fire way to catch a disease, not fight it. But according to these Indians, it is the # 1 way to protect yourself from COVID-19.
Recent reports have revealed that some Indians (in southern India) are literally bathing in a pond filled with manure as they firmly believe he holds the cure for the coronavirus.
Not only that, but these people also claim that dung bathing can boost your immune system.
The New York Post recently shared a video of the scene. And you can see the guys relishing in a cow dung bath.
You can even see them dive below and rise to the surface, just like bathing in a tub or swimming pool.
In the video, one of the men says:
“The whole world is terrified of the deadly virus outbreak. If we all start taking cow dung baths, we will achieve immunity against the virus. ”
Could this be true? Probably not, but even if it was – you’re going to end up with a whole bunch of other infections.
After all, you can’t get coronavirus if you die of cholera first.
Guess it’s worth the risk, especially when you look at how much fun they are having.
Just look at that smile:
I wonder how many of you would take cow baths if you knew for sure that it could actually cure or prevent the coronavirus.
I guess the logic is that since cows are considered sacred in India, that means their poop must have healing properties. Just a thought!
But even if it were true, it would be a “NO” on my part. And I would never advise swimming in one, that’s for sure.
In another twist, another outlet reported that a Hindu group in India was having a cow urine drinking party. Organizers claim the urine would make them immune to the coronavirus.
