IBTimes describes how a South Korean SBS documentary team uncovered a Chinese pharmaceutical operation that makes stamina pills out of dead babies. This still sounds quite unbelievable. One Gizmodo reader commented: "Be interested to see the report in a couple days withdrawing this claim, and making clear it was part of South Korean anti-China propaganda."
The team reveals that the truth behind the dead baby pill is horrific and disturbing.
Chinese hospitals and abortion clinics that are connected to the business immediately notify pharmaceutical companies when a baby dies, mostly because of a still birth or an abortion.
The companies purchase the baby corpses and store them in some family’s refrigerator to avoid suspicion. The next step in this highly secretive process is putting the corpses in a medical drying microwave and grinding them into pills. The ground baby powder is then put in a capsule, ready to be sold as a stamina enhancer, according to the SBS team.
The Korean team acquired the dead baby capsules and ran DNA tests on it. The test results reportedly indicated the pills were 99.7 percent human. The test also found hair and nail remnants, and even the gender of the baby could be identified....
Out of the hundreds of Web sites & blogs running this strange news item, there is one, Skeptic Reddit, that questions the validity of this report in "I've Never Wanted a Story to Be a Hoax More in My Entire Life." On the other hand, it's a well-known fact that Chinese will pay good money for exotic folk-medicine ingredients such as rhinoceros horn, praying mantis egg cases, dried seahorses, and bear bile.
