urine therapy in boxing
Wiki has an interesting article on urine therapy:
The article suggests that urine-thereapy is not uncommon in boxing and martial arts:
"Mixed martial arts superstar Lyoto Machida revealed in an interview that he drinks his own urine. MMA fighter Luke Cummo has been a long-time advocate of the practice. The boxer Juan Manuel Marquez is shown in a 24/7 preview ingesting his own urine while in training for an upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather. U.S. national Taekwondo medalist Adam Paolino has used urine therapy successfully during his rehabilitation for injuries..."
"Among other modern celebrities, the British actress Sarah Miles has drunk her own urine for over thirty years, in claiming the belief that it immunizes against allergies, amongst other health benefits. Major League Baseball player Moisés Alou urinates on his hands to alleviate calluses, which he claims allows him to bat without using batting gloves. Madonna explained to talk show host David Letterman that she urinates on her own feet to help cure her athlete's foot problem."
The article made me think that people were too tough on JMM in accusing him of doing something unreasonable... What do you think? ;-)
