Medications made of human tissue have not been found in China, the country's Health Ministry said Tuesday after reports a day earlier that pills made from the flesh of dead babies were smuggled from China into South Korea.
Chinese authorities will conduct an investigation into reports that the capsules, allegedly made from aborted fetuses, were made in China, Deng Haihua, a spokesman for China's Health Ministry, said in a report from the state-run Xinhua news agency. Similar allegations were investigated in August, and nothing was found to substantiate them, he said.
Deng said China has strict regulations to ensure that such a thing could not occur.
According to a report in the Korea Times, 29 smugglers of "human-flesh capsules" have been arrested after trying to bring 11,000 pills into the country while disguised as tourists.
More than 35 cases and more than 17,000 pills have been found by customs authorities since August, the South Korean website Dong-A Ilbo reported.
The pills are taken by people who believe they may help increase stamina, for rejuvenation or by terminal cancer patients, according to the South Korean reports.
There'll only be producers, if there's consumers. Think about it!
then... think this:
why do they smuggle it to South Korea? Because the South Korean like it!!!! :)
35000 Forced Abortions everyday, the outcome is horrifying practices (this news is one of them). They should
Castrate 35000 men everyday to stick to OneChildPolicy.
Anyone that actually believes this story is as gullible as they get...
THE PEOPLE WHO BUY THESE PILLS ARE WORSE THAN THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE THEM
Great we all wondered who started the Zombie Apocalypse. Now we know that is was China.
I remember when there was reports of Adult Men in Africa raping babies thinking it would cure the men of aids.
I hear they taste like chicken
Imagine how the people who DIDNT kno who took the pills must feel
Yea but I think slavery is pretty disgusting too! We humans are all to blame.
