New Delhi - Is camel milk the Viagra of the desert?

It appears so in the arid Indian state of Rajasthan, where thousands of men have been clamouring to get their hands on camel milk after an 88-year-old man who fathered a child several weeks ago attributed his virility to the drink, the Times of India newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Since the man, Virmaram Jat, a local farmer, revealed what he believes to be the secret of his sexual prowess, sales of camel milk have shot up and dealers have doubled their prices in the western state, the paper reported.

However, doctors and scientists in Rajasthan said it was unlikely the milk was responsible for his achievement.

The director of the National Research Centre on Camels, MS Sahani, said there was no scientific basis for the claim. - Sapa-AP
