    From constipation to cancer, diarrhea to diabetes, they offer to cure nearly everything — with medicines made from cow urine. India's Hindu nationalists, who were ousted from power last May, have a new job: promoting cow products that many Indians believe have great therapeutic value.

    A stall at the headquarters of the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party showcases more than two dozen tonics, potions, pills and a line of cosmetics. The products are sold under the brand name Goratna, or "jewels of the cow."



    "It's very good, very effective. You must try some of these," said S.P. Sharma, a BJP official, as he offered to buy a pack of face cream he said helped his daughter get rid of pimples.



    "My daughter tried all kinds of things. Nothing worked," Sharma said. "But this one is working wonders for her. Last week, I bought one pack and today I am buying one more."

    The Goratna offerings use five key cow products — butter, milk, curd, urine and dung. Purushottam Toshniwal, the general secretary of the cooperative that manufactures the cosmetics, said workers there followed a "solid scientific process" based on India's ancient herbal remedies, known as ayurveda. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=816&e=2&u=/ap/20050302/ap_on_fe_st/india_cow_cure_all

    So for my son's acne, I should tell him to rub a little cow sh**t on his face? LOL, I can't wait to tell him.
