SEOUL, S. Korea — If you have a weak stomach, you may want to stop reading… Some shocking information is coming to light after a news organization in Seoul, South Korea aired a documentary about “stamina pills” that contained human remains.
The news continued to get worse as it appears that some, if not most, of the remains are that of aborted or stillborn babies. According to a report from The Daily Mail, some of the remains could be from children that were left to die in “dying rooms” because the child was born to a family that already had one child. China has a mandate allowing only one child per family in “country areas”, a regulation that Vice President Joe Biden “understands” and doesn’t “second guess”.
Alright… That alone should be making your stomach churn. But now, someone is buying placenta (which is against the law in China), aborted babies, stillborn babies and babies that are left to die to grind up and put into capsules that supposedly heightens stamina. According to a Chinese Ministry of Health member said they have “strict management of disposal of infant and fetal remains as well as placentas.”
The Daily Mail article provided a grim synopsis of how the pills are made (WARNING: Graphic Content)
The grim trade is being run from China where corrupt medical staff are said to be tipping off medical companies when babies are aborted or delivered still-born.
The tiny corpses are then bought, stored in household refrigerators in homes of those involved in the trade before they are removed and taken to clinics where they are placed in medical drying microwaves.
Once the skin is tinder dry, it is pummeled into powder and then processed into capsules along with herbs to disguise the true ingredients from health investigators and customs officers.
According to the Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS) DNA tests performed on the contents of the pills confirmed that 99.7% of the contents were human remains. Aside from just the human remains, some potentially harmful bacteria called “super bacteria”. The BBC quoted an official from the Korean Times as saying, “It was confirmed those capsules contain materials harmful to the human body, such as super bacteria. We need to take tougher measures to protect public health.”
All this came to light last August in the documentary by SBS, yet the story is just hitting mainstream today. China’s past exports of dangerous and questionable things includes poisoned dog food, lead paint laden toys and now stamina pills filled with the remains of babies.
When contacted by the UK’s Telegraph today, officials from China’s Food and Drug Administration and Health Ministry did not provide comment. But according to the Daily Mail article, the Ministry of Health is investigating the claims.
