The Barrel Hook Cactus is not only a water source but it's also edible and will give you enough to survive in a desert environment. In the video clip you see Mykel Hawke teaching his wife Ruth England and viewers to drink pee when in a survival situation. I don't think he realized the fact he had in his hands was a cactus that would provide water as well as a food source. Maybe he was to busy trying to be like Bear Grylls when it comes to drinking urine. I never condone drinking piss, rather I do teach other more rewarding ways to procure water. This is one of the point I was trying to drive home about TV Celebrity Survivalists in previous articles and videos, they spend more time focused on looking cool on television versus doing things the right way. When I get my chance to film my survival television series, I will show the world what right looks like and not only offer adventure,critical skills both primitive and modern but entertaining educational content that's progressive. Watch this YouTube video with Ruth England and her husband Mykel Hawke and see them both drink pee from a cactus that would keep them from needing to drink piss in the first place. Knowledge is power, and had they realized they had a barrel hook cactus, they would have no reason to drink piss. Also never drink another person's pee. There are so many other ways to find or make water you should never need to drink urine.
