Dead Baby Pills Carry Lethal 'Super-Bacteria'
Thousands of pills made up of dead human foetuses that are being smuggled on the blackmarket have been found to contain potentially lethal bacteria.
The capsules were discovered by South Korean custom officials at Incheon Airport after they were attempted to be smuggled in from China.
The authorities said the smuggling of dead human foetuses had increased with 35 hauls containing 17,450 capsules being discovered since the first case was revealed in August 2011.
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.
Laboratory analysis revealed the brown powdery substance found in the capsules was made from human remains.
A customs official said: "As we analysed the DNA, its DNA sequence is 99.7% to 99.9% coincided to human's.
"Super-bacteria and other virus and bacteria, which are harmful to the human body, have been detected."
The dead baby pills are believed to be in demand by Chinese workers or cancer patients in South Korea who believe they have stamina-enhancing qualities.

makes me ashamed to be human!
so there's a plentifull supply of foetuses available in China, for chopping up, no questions asked. No doubt mainly females. Here we have old Asian Grannies 'honour killing' young women and Africans torturing and chopping up children who their Church tells them they must do. All claiming it's their cultural heritage.

the world is becoming insane and everyday becoming worse and worse.i think society will collaspe one day only interested in themselves and social order go out the window.only a matter of time.i hope this story isnt true but nothing surprises me especially the chinese and indians.totally crazy.scary i think in time the chinese will control the world in time.there working on it know world war3
I couldn't imagine anything sicker - remind me not to get a chinese takeaway again
how can a dead baby cure Cancer? I still I suppose it solves the problem of what to do with all those aborted foetuses from the "one child families", mainly female. One thing I find quite funny is that for years, Countries like China and India have "got rid of " the female babies for various reasons and in various ways, but now the imbalance is so severe in some places that there are not enough Women for men to marry and the men are leaving their families anyway to go and find a wife, or not marrying at all and the families are dying out! serves them right
Don't just blame the Chinese - it's the South Koreans who import and use the pills.
CJD............ Kuru............ God knows what else we will inflict on ourselves through greed and stupidity.
That is disgusting..But am not that surprised..they eat cat,dog..anything if they believed it did some good.
It's called Soylent Green, and will become more available as the population explosion overwhelms the planet. There's money to be made you see.
As they are believed to be 'stamina enhancing' will the Olympic Committee be testing for them during the 2012 Olympics and can anyone be banned if they prove positive?
How absolutely disgusting is this?? No wonder the Chinese want to silence anyone who speaks out about the Human Rights atrocoties carried out by their government.
