A UK man who drinks his own month-old urine and smears it all over his face has claimed his sister now hates him because of his habit.
According to Daily Mail, Harry Matadeen began drinking his own waste in 2016 because he was desperate to heal his mental health problems.
He drinks 200ml of his urine every day and he said his habit has left him feeling a new sense of peace, calm and determination and cured him almost immediately.

The 34-year-old, who sometimes cups his own stream and splashes it on his face, claimed it's the secret to eternal youth.
He has also written books about the supposed health benefits of his habit.

Matadeen said he has been rejected by his sister because of his so-called urine therapy.

Carrie says it sometimes tastes salty and like champagne at other times.
