The Latest Health Fad That Will Probably Kill You Is Drinking Dog Piss to Cure Cancer

The answer to your health problem is seeing a doctor. I can’t stress this enough. Don’t drink turpentine, don’t have your genitals steam-cleaned or sandblasted or whatever and don’t put a jade egg in your vagina. Just go and see a doctor. Sure, no doctor is right 100% of the time, but you’re going to get much better medical advice from a doctor than from an herbalist or a shaman or a homeopath.

The most recent piece of medical advice you absolutely shouldn’t take that’s circulating the internet comes from Facebook user Lynn Lew, who claims that drinking dog urine is the key to curing acne, along with having other medical benefits. And then demonstrates by drinking a fresh glass of dog urine.

Okay, honestly? I’d rather have acne. Seriously, bad skin is a small price to pay for not drinking dog piss, which is, and I can’t stress this enough, not “the secret to cure cancer, alleviate pain, and prevent the swelling of joins [sic].”

If you want my honest opinion, I think this is some sort of weird fetish video. Patton Oswalt has a whole bit about finding a copy of Piss Drinkers magazine on vacation in Europe, and Vice ran a whole how-to guide about it last year. My guess is the next step for Lynn involves selling feature-length films of her “health treatments”. I’m gonna take a hard pass on those. Well, more like a flaccid pass, but you know what I mean.
