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.

    I was shocked when I bought some Dole single-serve peaches (you know, the ones that are in the non-perishable fruit isle, lol...) and the bottom of the package said they were from China! I was so grossed out that they went in the garbage. TVs and computers are fine, but I do NOT trust food from China that shouldn't even be from China to begin with!

    People will do just about anything to stay alive but we do everything possible to destroy just about everything that sustains us . We today have more chemicals in our body fat than at any time in the history of man and not long ago I read an article that said babies today have some 200 plus chemicals (not natural) stored in their body fat . Why on earth would someone just want to add more toxic chemicals purposely to their own body . If you drink milk from a plastic jug you might want to ask yourself how much plastic did you just drink ? Food and drink absorbs chemicals from the very containers they are stored in .

      Exactly! The problem of civilization is DEVIATION from the natural ways, that means – self-destruction, degradation and expiration.

      Eat dead babies to "increase stamina"? How far the twisted hunam's mind can go? What about eating FOOD, not the chemical additives, to increase stamina? Go DyeDiet see how NOT to eat the chemicals in the American food supply.

    LOL. Really? Plastic milk jugs hurt you more than milk a.k.a. lactose, a substance the human body is totally incapable of digesting. We simply do not produce an an emzyme capable of breaking-down lactose. Now, lactose a.k.a. mothers milk we can handle. But mom burned her bra and says it makes her teets sag a year too early sooo...

      Do you really believe that milk/lactose is not "incapable of digesting" or are you simply really stupid? This is some seriously interesting Alternate Reality Land you live in.

      Uh....we're mammals. We can digest milk. It comes with the territory. I think you misunderstood your doctor when he said you were lactose intolerant. YOU can't digest lactose...too bad for you. But most of us can.

    Pills "made from the flesh of dead babies"...... Does the use of the word "dead" imply that pills exist that are made from the flesh of "live" babies????
