Ok then.


(AP) SEOUL, South Korea - 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.

Need more work in China in their quality control departments. It's safe to buy cheap stuff in China at loonie stores.

I always been baffled as to why anyone would give Chinese medicine any credibility at all, considering the bizarre cures advocated by Chinese quacks. Most Chinese medical practices, including acupuncture, seem to be without any scientific basis whatsoever.
