    Pills filled with dead baby flesh seized in S Korea

    Pills filled with dead baby flesh seized in Korea

    Thousands of capsules filled with powdered flesh from dead babies have been seized by South Korean customs officials.
    The pills were made in north-eastern China and are thought by some to be a viable cure for disease, the Telegraph reports.
    The Korean Customs Service refused to say where the dead babies used to make the pills may have come from, or who was behind their production.
    Chinese officials are investigating the making of drugs from dead foetuses and newborns.
    Korean Customs have witnessed 35 smuggling attempts of the capsules since last August.
    They are commonly disguised as stamina boosters.
    The capsules were confiscated by customs but no one was punished because the amount was deemed too small for criminal charges.
    It is believe ethnic Koreans from China who now live in South Korea were intending to use the pills themselves or share them with other Korean-Chinese people.
    They were carried in luggage and sent by mail.

    I saw this in a gardening forum yesterday, and my first thought was 'surely not'. There was, however, a link to the 'Telegraph' article.

    It just goes beyond comprehension.

    A second thought (once some of the shock wears off, but not the yuckiness): this is a real reminder that we need to read labels for ingredients. If it is in a language foreign to us then we need to do research. Names of products are made up to sell, and not necessarily to describe accurately.

    I'm afraid I'm sounding a bit preachy, but hopefully you'll see my point.
