Cow drinking water can be found in nearly every home, especially in areas where farmers grow the crops that make up most of the food consumed in the United States.
But the same people who drink cow’s milk, or other dairy products, also may be using cow’s urine, according to an investigation by the New York Times.
The Times, which found that people were using cow urine as a drinking water treatment, reported that a woman in her 50s had been using the urine in a test for urinary tract infections.
“I was doing a urine test,” the woman told the newspaper.
“You know, they’re used to urine, but they’re a little bit dirty.
I’m not used to that.
I’ve never seen it.”
The woman, who was not identified by the Times, told the paper that she’d been drinking cow urine for about a month.
She said that she drank about 10 gallons of cow urine a day for two years.
She was diagnosed with urinary tract infection after the second year.
The woman told investigators that she had recently stopped drinking cow’s blood.
According to the New Yorker, the woman has no other health problems, and the urine treatment was not recommended by the American Association of Clinical Microbiology, a national group that advises the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The organization did not respond to a request for comment from the Times.
