On the television program “60 Minutes” aired on June 4, 1978, the former Prime Minister of India, Morarji Desai, was interviewed by Dan Rather, Mike Wallace and Morley Safer.
Rather: Tell us how are you able to run the government of India, working 12 hours a day or more, horseback riding in the countryside, talking vigorously in public at the age of 82 years young. Tell us your secret.
Desai: My diet consists of fruit and vegetable juices, fresh and natural milk, plain yogurt, honey, fresh fruits, raw nuts, five cloves of garlic every day, and I drink five to eight ounces of urine every
morning on an empty stomach.
Rather: Yack! You drink your urine? That is the most repulsive thing I have ever heard.
