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.
After 2 weeks in China a few years ago,I've made a rule for my self and family "never put any thing made in China in the mouth ! "
Deng said China has strict regulations to ensure that such a thing could not occur. Just like the illegal importation of Rhino horn? They Think we are all fools. We know that they are...
"China says no pills made from human flesh in country" – Of course not, they are all in South Korea now.
Don't buy Chinese products – boycott Apple !
Apple products are made from dead American jobs !
What along with Microsoft, half of the automotives, and most of the home appliances? No thanks, I don't feel like living in Somalia.
Yeah, right. As if we should believe anything a top-level official in China says. I remember the heparin that was sent to the US that the Chinese officials said was safe. Ended up killing people. Should I also need to mention the melamine tainted baby formula that the Chinese officials insisted was safe?
I'm sick of these Commies making garbage that kills people.
"Deng said China has strict regulations to ensure that such a thing could not occur."
Let's see, there was the poisonous dog food, the cadmium paint glasses and any number of tainted other products. How does that saying go? "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." When are Americans going to wake up and realize that China is trying to poison us all.
Hollywood practices the same thing.
Did they look behind the ground rhinoceros horn and dried tiger pe nis? Bloody CNN profanity filter...
The United States needs to stp doing business with China . They are a wicked and cursed nation that will one day have to answer to God for the evil they have committed.
Strict regulations my big bad toe!!!!! And they could not find them either, could they? The Chinese alone account for the daily assault of what ever species are left in nature, and now they discovered dead fetuses!. Just the kind of people you want as a predominant world player. Anyone surprised that are resorting to eating themselves up? Actually as long as a super bacteria burrows in those pills, I personally think it is a brilliant idea, we just get rid of two ducks with one shot.
Haha, they also probably said "Chen Guangcheng? Doesn't exist"
China's flesh pills vs. USA's asbestos.
What's the score? (in billions of dollars lost)
Try to search for this term "cannibalism in China" using Google and you will see the real truth. Also try to Google this term "Cooking Oil Made from Sewage in China". You will never want to eat from Chinese restaurant again.
Who nearly brought the African chimpanzee to extinction? USA's viral cancer research project 1962-1981. This congressinally funded science project consumed50,000 chimpanzees per year experimenting with a new virus w/hopeful canver applications. Once the chimp's neared extinction, researchers called on gay men from Manahattan to volunteer. They did. The rest is the history of AIDS.
What do you suggest science experiment on? Your chair is right this way, sir/madame.
Didn't the pesky stink bugs come over here from China?
They are probably knock off pills anyway.
