And You Can Drink The Milk

With Australians being asked to consider replacing cow with kangaroo in their diet to reduce the environmental footprint, Indians are leading the way in developing a wider range of food products from the humble and revered cow.

Bored of hamburgers then consider other cow products such as Moo Poo and Urine Coke for your daily sustenance.

Hindus worship cows for their life-sustaining dairy products, but many also consume bovine urine and faeces in drinks and spice mixes for their "health-giving" properties.In some Indian states, cow dung and urine are sold in regular dairy shops alongside milk and yogurt, and "ayurvedic" Indian health food companies make porridge, toothpaste and tonic drinks which claim to cure ailments ranging from liver complaints to diabetes and cancer. The urine is also believed to have disinfectant properties while the dung is used in many Indian village huts as a clean and antiseptic flooring.

So top that Skippy. My bet is that this would be a marketing challenge here in Oz. I think I will stick to the meat and dairy bits.

I do wish you would mind the time difference, Colin. I am sitting here trying to eat a sandwich for lunch as I visit blogs. I should know better. :)
