People in different parts of the world try several remedies to cure issues like acne or to stay healthy. But while natural ingredients with medicinal properties aren’t uncommon, some can come across as bizarre.

People are now going for a weird beauty and health trend which involves drinking urine as even bloggers are promoting the practice. A meteorologist from Idaho claims that turning to the toilet helped him lose more than 13 kilos as he felt more energised too.

He then recommended it to painter Julia Sillaman who claims to have lost 12 kg and cured her acne as well after drinking urine. The practice isn’t new as it has been around for centuries and many even believe that it can reverse ageing.

Meanwhile scientists say there is no evidence that such a trend is beneficial and one even stated that people are simply making a joke of themselves while the practice can also harm them.
