Cow Urine brings possible relief to Diabetics
However, reports indicate that its properties are now being re-discovered by members of the scientific community. Indeed, this report suggests that some Indian researchers have discovered molecules that may help in curing diabetes.
Interestingly, on a hunch, a background check on the use uses of cow urine reveals the following:
(a) There seem to be several articles on the uses of cow dung and cow urine (including on this website which seems to have dedicated itself to the protection of Cows).
(b) This report suggests that a patent has been sought/ granted (unsure about the specifics) in 2002 for the life span enhancing properties of cow urine.

(c) This website claims that a gentleman has already been granted a patent for the innovation and discovery of uses of cow urine. While the patent number mentioned therein seems wrong, this page from the Patent Office website indicates that a patent has been granted for the same, though the complete specification seems inaccessible.
In this light, I am wondering whether a patent will actually be granted even if these very dedicated researchers do continue their hard work on discovering the hidden properties of urine.
Recently, Swaraj posted here on India featuring high on the Google trends for Intellectual Property. Well, from this news report in The Hindu, it seems that apart from SpicyIP, our politicians may have a large part to play in that as well.
This really hilarious article has the spokesperson of the BJP, Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad (a lawyer himself) remarking that the Congress did not hold the “patent” to visit Dalit households! It’s quite heartening to see our politicians embarking upon use of terms ,we here at SpicyIP consider quite close to our hearts.
All hail IP trendy India- from cows, dedicated researchers and politicians- we seem to have all bases covered!
