Eating babies

South Korean customs have discovered 35 smuggling attempts from China involving 17,450 capsules described as "stamina-boosters." The capsules are reportedly filled with powdered human baby flesh.

Human baby-flesh pills are in demand for many reasons, some who believe that it is a "tonic for disease." The Wall Street Journal reports that in China it is common to consume human placentas to revive blood supply and circulation. Another reported theory for the use of these pills is that they enhance sexual performance.

 A documentary has claimed that pharmaceutical companies in China are working with abortion clinics.

And some wonder why the Traditional Chinese Medicine and Complementary and Alternative Medicine lobby are often challenged by those of us who want health and safety protected by evidence based research and scientific testing.
