China says no pills made from human flesh in country

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.

      @ steven, too late, steven. You guys probably eat a lot of human powder in the foods and other items shipped already. It is the joke of the century. But cut off all the trades relations with these sick people for real!

    Human flesh? Maybe...maybe not. I wouldn't be surprised that they're putting cadmium in the pills.

    Chinese will eat, drink, or swallow anything, and I mean anything, if they think it will keep their junk hard. Rhinos, gorillas, human babies – whatever it takes to increase their libido.

      Case in point. You have little knowledge, and your accusations are based on your own racist beliefs.

    Wow. This seems to always become the podium for people to blast their racism and stereotypical garbage other cultures. If any one from another part of the world would read this and decide to use the same level of stereotypes and racism we use in America, they would simply write us off as a bunch of ignorant, uneducated racists. Fortunately, I know better about China as well as the US.

    And who would want to do this. I mean come on this i just weird. I would not want to take pills of dead baby flesh cause that is just weird and who knows what happened to those baby's. They could have killed them on purpouse and if they did why would you do that so that someone can take the pill and then you get all of the money. I'm sorry but that i just really weird. I am so glad that I do not live in China cause it seems like a lot of people there do weird things and who knows what else and we in the USA have no idea cause we dont go over and say hey are you doing something to dead baby's. I just hope that the dead baby's did not have to suffer so they can be made up into pills.
