• Evo Morales promotes urine therapy

    The president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, took advantage of a public event to promote urine therapy — he claims it worked for him:

    Bolivian President Evo Morales, an Aymara native who was born and raised in a remote region of the Andes, revealed Wednesday that he used to drink his own urine to cure his ailments. “I was raised in the countryside on the basis of ‘lampaya’ and ‘wira wira-‘ to cure coughs and sorry to say the truth, also the urine”.

    When a doctor told me: ‘Drink urine, it is good’, “I was healed with urine, by drinking urine, that was my medicine, we are from that family”, said Morales, during a public event in the region of Cochabamba (center) where he delivered modern medical equipment.

    During the ceremony, the Bolivian president said doctors should combine the resources of traditional medicine, indigenous and widespread in poor areas of the country, with modern medicine. “I ask you, with great respect: we must combine traditional and scientific medicine“, the president told physicians attending the delivery of hospital equipment.

    When will rulers learn that personal experiences are not evidence?
