Because you are not sincere or genuine.........you have been mis-informed.
Scientists have discovered that Cow Dung has antiseptic properties and this is why villagers use it in the building of their huts.
I have never heard of anyone eating cow dung .........but I have heard of some sick people being instructed to drink a small amount of cows urine.
Cow urine also has healing properties.
Penicillin is made from fungus. and used world wide.
I have never in my life eaten cow dung or drank cows urine.
Hindus who are not to be mistaken for Vaisnavas [those who follow the bonafide Vedas ..............have many strange customs because they do not know the Vedas and the purpose of the Vedas but have crafted their own path of spirituality which we now have come to know as Hinduism.
The word Hinduism is not even found in the Vedas........because the word Hinduism is only a recent concoction.
I am not recommending Hinduism and I never will.
I am presenting Vaishnavism which is the bona-fide and authentic process of true religion presented in the Vedas.
If you go on-line to research the Vedas you will surely be misled because there are many unauthorized and bogus web-sites spewing out Vecic speculation.
You must ask me where you can find authentic Vedic knowledge.
Authentic Vedic knowledge will never instruct you to eat cow dung.
But it may ask you to injest cows urine according to your symptoms of ill health.
Did you know that ingesting Gold is good for you health. [you first must grind the gold to a powder.]
Ingesting gold is good for increasing intelligence and brain power.
This health/medical knowledge comes from the Ayurveda which is part of the Vedas.
The Vedas comprise of millions of verse/texts.
The Vedas have existed before the Roman Empire and the Pyramids.
