You can't make this up...

''South Korea has seized thousands of smuggled drug capsules filled with powdered flesh from dead babies, which some people believe can cure disease.

The capsules were made in north-east China from babies whose bodies were chopped into small pieces and dried on stoves before being turned into powder, the Korean customs service said.

Officials refused to say where the dead babies had come from or who made the capsules, citing possible diplomatic friction with Beijing. Last year, Chinese officials ordered an investigation into the production of drugs made from dead foetuses or newborns.

The customs service said it had discovered 35 attempts since August to smuggle a total of about 17,450 capsules.

The smugglers told customs officials they believed the capsules were ordinary stamina boosters, and were ignorant of the ingredients and manufacturing process. Ethnic Koreans from north-east China who now live in South Korea intended to use the capsules themselves or share them with other Korean-Chinese, a customs official said.

The capsules were carried in luggage or sent by international mail. They were all confiscated but no one was punished because the amount was deemed small and they were not intended for sale, the official said.

The customs agency began investigating after receiving a tip a year ago. No sicknesses have been reported from ingesting the capsules.

Its the quackery known as "Traditional Chinese Medicine". I don't get why so many Chinese people still follow that pseudo-science. Maybe out of a sense of pride in Chinese culture or maybe they are just too dead set in their old ways.

Canibalism isn't cool...

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

Hopefully this will start an investigation into the widespread sale of baby oil as well....

With the vast amount of reproduction, there tends to be an excess of babies that are left to die..

People can't really change if they're not given the education to make decisions for this type of thing. A large part of China is rural and the other is concentrated in cities where education is not very prevalent. If you live in the countryside and move to the city, you and your children are not allowed to partake in education there as your place of origin was the countryside so it keeps large populations out of the city.

I don't know a whole lot about the education system in the PRC but I know that a lot of Chinese people living in the west follow TCM.

Both my parents are Chinese, lived in the city of Saigon (before it turned communist and its a city outside of China) and received an education there. They both believe in this quackery. Our family doctor who is also Chinese tells them that most of TCM is garbage and the rest is still highly untested in clinical studies but they don't listen.
