Here's a story coming from Saudi Arabia that needs to be confirmed.

Apparently a vendor sells camel urine (that may have legitimate medicinal purposes).

Now the "government" shuts the vendor down for issues concerning the "purity" of the product.

Read for yourselves and figure this out.

Can anybody confirm this?

*source*



Saudi authorities have closed down a shop selling traditional camel urine drinks after discovering the owner had been filling the bottles with his own bodily waste.

Health inspectors swooped on a vendor in the port city of Al Qunfudhah, in south-western Saudi Arabia, and confiscated more than 70 full bottles.

The practice of drinking camel's urine mixed with milk is believed to date back centuries while some insist it has health benefits.

I think if you're drinking camel piss you're asking for it in the first place, but to each his own. One man's medicine is another's poison.

The Muslim holy book contains quotes from the prophet Muhammad and it says: 'Some people of Ukl or Uraina tribes came to Medina (in Saudi Arabia) and the climate did not suit them.

'So the Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of (milk) camels and to drink their milk and urine (as medicine).
Link I can't help thinking he said that out of a sense of mischief. Maybe the visiting tribespeople were bad whingers so he kidded that they should drink milk and piss? Their drinking it and he's all 'LMFAO!'


To me piss is piss and human or camel is kind of a non-question. Lol. Who'd drink either flavour?? What would they say? 'Bleaurfgh!! Human piss? That's just disgusting!!'

It's touted as a cure for people with social anxiety disorder.
For some reason people tend to leave you alone after drinking this.
Can't imagine why....??

Someone obviously mis-heard the blessing ... " peace on you ".

Jokes aside - camel milk is now being harvested and sold to the middle east by Australian camel farmers.

The medicinal properties are actually a reality.

The piss is just for taste.

Just like an over regulated, bloated bureaucracy to shut down a perfectly good business for BS health code infractions.

Camel urine could not only sicken a person but allow a pathogen to cross the species barrier and cause a major epidemic. In fact, the drinking of camel urine by Muslims is the likely origin of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS).As a precaution, WHO is urging people to "avoid drinking raw camel milk or camel urine."
Please, if you absolutely must drink camel urine make sure it is pasteurized.
