South Korean customs officials have reported the confiscation of thousands of pills filled with powdered human flesh – believed to be smuggled in from China. The capsules are in huge demand because they are viewed as being a medicinal 'cure-all'. In particular they supposedly boost stamina and rejuvenate the body.
The raw materials for the pills are babies who are aborted or delivered still-born. UK’s Daily Mail describes the sickening manufacturing process: “The tiny corpses are… bought, stored in household refrigerators in homes of those involved in the trade before they are removed and taken to clinics where they are placed in medical drying microwaves. Once the skin is tinder dry, it is pummelled into powder and then processed into capsules along with herbs to disguise the true ingredients.” Even hardened Korean customs agents were reportedly shocked at the discoveries
The San Francisco Times reported that tests carried out on the pills confirmed they were made up of 99.7 per cent human remains. Even the gender of the babies could be identified. Despite serious efforts by Chinese officials to stop this trade which could affect the legitimate trade in Chinese herbal remedies, the criminals keep devising new methods.
.Besides, there is a huge demand for the pills. Microwave-dried placenta is also sought after for its alleged 'medicinal' benefits. Historically, Chinese have consumed human placentas to improve blood supply and circulation. The gap between placentas and babies is really not that wide.
However, despite the claims the capsule can cure everything from broken bones to cancers, there are doubts that they really are effective. Rather, and not surprisingly, the human flesh capsules are found to contain super-bacteria and other harmful ingredients.
According to the Daily Mail, “There have been disturbing reports that some babies were those who had perished in China's notorious 'dying rooms' where youngsters are deliberately left to die because they were born into families that already had the limit of one child in country areas.” Continuing, the Daily Mail observes that “In order to keep its population down, China performs 13 million abortions a year - mainly because mothers sacrifice their newborns to avoid punishment such as severe fines or even a beating by the authorities.”
The Chinese authorities itself have confirmed that a whooping 38 per cent of women of child-bearing age have been sterilised. Find details at: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2140702/South-Korea-customs-officials-thousands-pills-filled-powdered-human-baby-flesh.html#ixzz1uGtyTSOL
