South Korea has seized thousands of smuggled drug capsules filled with powdered flesh from dead babies, which some people believe can cure disease, officials said Monday.
The capsules were made in northeastern China from babies whose bodies were chopped into small pieces and dried on stoves before being turned into powder, the Korea Customs Service said.
Customs officials refused to say where the dead babies came from or who made the capsules, citing possible diplomatic friction with Beijing. Chinese officials ordered an investigation into the production of drugs made from dead fetuses or newborns last year.
The customs office has discovered 35 smuggling attempts since August of about 17,450 capsules disguised as stamina boosters, and some people believe them to be a panacea for disease, the customs service said in a statement. The capsules of human flesh, however, contained bacteria and other harmful ingredients.
The smugglers told customs officials they believed the capsules were ordinary stamina boosters and did not know the ingredients or manufacturing process.
Ethnic Koreans from northeastern China who now live in South Korea were intending to use the capsules themselves or share them with other Korean-Chinese, a customs official said. They were carried in luggage or sent by international mail.
The capsules were all confiscated but no one has been punished because the amount was deemed small and they weren't intended for sale, said the customs official, who requested anonymity, citing department rules.

Sounds like some of the cannibal stories from North Korea, but in pill form.
17,000+ pills is too small of an amount to prosecute? Is that not above the ‘personal use’ limit?
Communists are monstrous! We should remember that here on Election Day!
I’ve heard the rumors of South Koreans eating children who were less than six months old and who scrounge around hospitals looking for the afterbirth to ingest that supposedly has medicinal powers fqr rejuvenation, reversing the aging process,
Democrats also believe that dead babies improve your life. They just haven’t started eating them yet.
“Ive heard the rumors of South Koreans eating children who were less than six months old and who scrounge around hospitals looking for the afterbirth to ingest that supposedly has medicinal powers fqr rejuvenation, reversing the aging process,”
As opposed to the Americans who have murdered tens of millions of babies for convenience?
Tissue from babies has been and is still used by many cultures. Currently its legally used in makeup and anti-aging products manufactured by American and European companies.
Pepsi uses cells from aborted babies to conduct product taste testing.
Remember, citizens, ALL societies are of equal value; none is intrinsically better than any other. You have no right to judge other peoples cultural customs and idiosyncrasies.
A modest proposal would be to just prosecute the bastards that could do this....problem is this is COMMUNISM. How do you prosecute an entire government? War?
AGAIN with this.......?
Yesterday wasn’t enough?
Oh, well. Time to change channels I guess.
Just did another title search. With this title, the only article is the one I posted.
Perhaps someone posted the same article under a different title from a different source. I don’t visit everyday and don’t read every article, so, I wouldn’t know.
And so, I also would not know why you’re moaning about “AGAIN with this . . .?” I, and perhaps others, might have appreciated a link to the previous discussion.
Thanks and best,
