Things I've Learned From My In-Laws in Africa

I've learned some rather interesting, and helpful, information today. Mike's parents are serving an LDS mission in Africa, and they learned this bit of information and passed it on to us today.

1 - If you have athlete's foot, your urine can help it get better....but it is only your urine, not someone elses.

2 - Urine can also help you if you have a sore throat. Just drink it!

3 - If you have an eye infection, it can also be used to help cure it.

4 - Now you don't have to worry about always having a sterile anti-biotic in your emergency first aid kit. Should an emergency arise, you will always have a supply as long as you have plenty of liquid! haha

I hear from Lola that breast milk works for about everything also. I think I would rather drink my own breast milk then my peep.

Urine can keep you cool in the desert too! I saw it on Survivor man once. He just peeped on his shirt, and wrapped it around his head and face. He said it was kind of stinky though!

P.S. Dad is real happy now he has a way to sterilize his hands after hand shaking all day long and before eating.
