NST Advocates You To Drink Shitty Water

UPDATED: Kit poses this question:

Is Nurida Mohd Yusop prepared to set a public example to drink the smelly tap water, which she has declared as “safe to drink”? If not, what is the purpose of this NST report?


Yeah, the water's shitty, so what? Still drink it as it is perfectly safe," blares NST's front page:

Thanks for the info, Annie Freeda Cruez and Irdiani Mohd Salleh! Yes, the water might be scientifically safe to drink, but pstt...seriously, have you yourselves drank the shitty water?

Did I also tell you that your urine is also perfectly sterile and safe to drink if you're not having Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)? And did you know that Morarji Desai, the former Prime Minister of India (1977-1979), practiced urine drinking? And there's a branch of alternative medicine called 'urine-drinking therapy'? Also, from Wikipedia:

In countries such as India, Thailand and China, it is considered normal by some groups to drink your own urine for health and cosmetic purposes. This health branch of drinking urine is considered to be labeled as Urine therapy. Also, an old method of teeth-whitening in Italy during the Renaissance involved the consumption of urine, though it needn't be, and wasn't always necessarily, that of the user.

Here, let me come up with a next front-page headline for you tomorrow:

It doesn't have a copyrights watermark; so feel free to use it for your front page tomorrow.

Oh, did someone tell you that my family has finally dumped NST for The Star after for god-knows-how-long? My momma preferred 'to look at the colourful ads from Carrefour' in The Star rather than to be brainwashed by your bad advocacy like this.
