Dave Murphy says the unusual beverage choice has seen him go from 20st to 12st, cured his asthma and is the key behind his youthful good looks.
Dave also believes that the practice of urine therapy could be a means of solving the world food shortage – and slashing people’s grocery bills.
For the last six years, Dave, 54 from Basildon, Essex has been drinking his own wee - and even
bathing in it.
Most days, Dave survives on little else besides one grapefruit and two glasses of his own urine.
His only indulgence is a small portion of chips from his local chippy three times per week.
In fact for thirty days in 2012, Dave subsisted on nothing else but his own urine.
Dave also uses his urine to moisturize his face and wash in. He maintains that wee is the ultimate anti-aging product.
Dave – who has a 25 year-old daughter and 21 year-old son – explains: “After drinking my urine, I feel healthier and fitter than I’ve ever done before and I’ve lost 8 stone in weight.
“Additionally, I don’t need much money to survive anymore. Because of all the wee I drink, I don’t need to eat very much food at all.
