Koreans Eat Powdered Human Flesh?

South Koreans (usually old men) love telling me about all the obscure and disgusting things they love to eat because it gives them "stamina".  I will never believe that eating dog or bovine penis will improve sexual performance... but it is what a lot of Korean men believe for some strange reason.  Then I read this!

Sourced from the BBC:
South Korea says it will increase customs inspections targeting capsules containing powdered human flesh.

The Korea Customs Service said it had found almost 17,500 of the capsules being smuggled into the country from China since August 2011.

The powdered flesh, which officials said came from dead babies and foetuses,
is reportedly thought by some to cure disease and boost stamina.

But officials said the capsules were full of bacteria and a health risk.

"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," a customs official was quoted as saying by the Korea Times.

Inspections are to be stepped up on shipments of drugs arriving from north-east China, Yonhap news agency reported.

The Dong-a Ilbo newspaper said that capsules were being dyed or switched into boxes of other drugs in a bid to disguise them.

Some of the capsules were found in travellers' luggage and some in the post, customs officials said.

Allegations that human flesh capsules were being trafficked from north-east China into South Korea emerged last year in a South Korean television documentary.

At the time China's Health Ministry said it was investigating the claims raised by the programme.

Ministry spokesman Deng Haihua, quoted at the time in China Daily, said China had "strict management of disposal of infant and foetal remains as well as placentas".

"Any practice that handles the remains as medical waste is strictly prohibited," the newspaper quoted him as saying.

So... f'ing... disgusting.

I have to wonder why the Lord and Master of this Universe doesn't take us out about now. How much more can we disappoint Him and make Him sad that His children act in these manners? God bless those babies and damn the people who have done this. To get more info please visit help-essay.com/essay-examples.
