Caption: Cooking eggs with urine. A woman is pouring hot urine over eggs to cook them. In the town of Dongyang, near Shanghai, China, it is believed that the urine of prepubescent boys has health benefits. In the spring, the urine of young boys is collected from local schools and boiled with eggs as a delicacy. It is believed that these eggs reduce body temperature, promote circulation and generally invigorate the body.
