Without question. The only problem is that there's one incorrect letter in that word, "passing."

You need some camel kabobs or clotted blood immediately.

You will appreciate the camel better. Emperor Elagabalus of Rome was a fervent consumer of camel's hoof. I haven't tried that because I have no idea how much heat can soak the hoof.

Question to the OP. I know camels are known for going extended periods without water. So how often do they actually urinate? And who has the job of following them around with a glass jar?

If I remember right I'm thinking that camels can store water in their bodies like a cactus so that in drought conditions they've always got a little extra. I have a very unusual ability because I can drink 8 oz. of coffee but it turns into a gallon of urine. I must have a bladder the size of a tea bag because I'm constantly having to take a stroll to the rest room so if you compare the input to the output of liquids it doesn't seem to make any sense. Anyway, camel urine doesn't exactly sound like the nector of the gods and I can't imagine that some corporation is going to bottle it and sell it in health food stores or classy night clubs.

I actually read a little bit about camels before I posted my message, that's the beauty of the CD forum, we're always learning. What I read was they don't really store water, but fat. That's where they get their energy. I don't consider myself to be an expert, particularly on the bedouin camels, but in the past I used to smoke camel cigarettes.
Seriously, If you look up benefits of camel urine on the net, you will find some things that you will be surprised at, not that I buy into them.

I don't get it. Drinking camel urine seems to be the equivalent of drinking vitamins wrapped in mercury.

If you tell me that camel urine helps cure disease because it contains antibiotics, that it helps growth because it containst minute traces of ect ect.... then why not take those ingredients and leave out the toxic bits such as the ureic acid? Why why why also take it from an animal which is known not to dilute it's waste with wussy things like water?

No matter what way you put it, you can't get past the fact that you are taking a product which was excreted by the animal for the sole reason that it would damage it's body otherwise.

If anyone had told you that a thread on the subject of drinking camel urine would have generated more than one or two responses, would you have believed them? I don't think I would have.

And just for the record...I think I'll "pass."
