S Korea 'to target powdered human flesh capsules'
08 May 2012

South Korea says it will increase customs inspections targeting capsules containing powdered human flesh.

The Korea Customs Service said it had found almost 17,500 of the capsules being smuggled into the country from China since August 2011.
The powdered flesh, which officials said came from dead babies and foetuses, is reportedly thought by some to cure disease and boost stamina.
But officials said the capsules were full of bacteria and a health risk.

"It was confirmed those capsules contain materials harmful to the human body, such as super bacteria. We need to take tougher measures to protect public health," a customs official was quoted as saying by the Korea Times.
Inspections are to be stepped up on shipments of drugs arriving from north-east China, Yonhap news agency reported.
The Dong-a Ilbo newspaper said that capsules were being dyed or switched into boxes of other drugs in a bid to disguise them.

Some of the capsules were found in travellers' luggage and some in the post, customs officials said.
Allegations that human flesh capsules were being trafficked from north-east China into South Korea emerged last year in a South Korean television documentary.

At the time China's Health Ministry said it was investigating the claims raised by the programme.
Ministry spokesman Deng Haihua, quoted at the time in China Daily, said China had "strict management of disposal of infant and foetal remains as well as placentas".
"Any practice that handles the remains as medical waste is strictly prohibited," the newspaper quoted him as saying.

Yes...and as I mentioned there is even a Chinese Mennonite congregation on this crazy mixed up planet. I'm sure there is a Ku Klux Klan Buddhist Sangha somewhere in the mix as well.

Absolutely. I was making reference to the communist aspect that infiltrated their culture. That seems to have done a good job wrecking a lot of their various religions.

Apparently Russian Orthodox types that fled after the red revolution ended up in China, S. American (i want to say Brasil and Argentina), Canada, and NWern US.

Reminds me of that scandal years ago about baby soap being made from abortions.
Cue an image of a woman in a shower lathering up and thinking, 'Hmmmm, this smells familiar....'

And in the early 2000s in Chisinau, Moldova two men were arrested for selling human flesh as animal parts, which they'd gotten from the Incurable Diseases Clinic.

There was always warnings going around to foreign staff in Russia back in the 1990s about buying pork. Apparently some people ended up eating a different kind of pork.
