Flesh Capsules For Freaky Friday

Just when you think you have seen or heard it all, a story like this pops up.

Someone could make a horror movie out of this report and folks would probably not believe it. Only trouble is...this is real life! Here is the story from the folks at Listverse!

Fetus Flesh Capsules

In 2012, South Korean officials seized thousands of pills containing the powdered flesh of fetuses. The pills were labeled as stamina boosters but intended to satisfy a demand for cannibalism. They were manufactured in China, and their grisly nature has ignited international tensions. The Chinese blamed the South Koreans. The South Koreans blamed the Chinese.

Aborted and stillborn children were harvested for the process. They were refrigerated before microwave drying. The corpses were then pulverized, mixed with herbs, and put into capsules. China has a tradition of eating aborted fetuses and placentas, which are considered part of the mother.

This unorthodox medicine is believed to increase sperm supply and blood flow. In 2007, the Hong Kong publication Next Magazine reported that fetuses were a trending health supplement in China. They noted that demand had outgrown supply and that buyers were getting their fix directly from hospitals.

The whole thing is almost too ghastly to even think about. I had no idea this sort of thing actually took place.

Coffee out on the patio this morning.

That is the most awful thing I have read in a long time. This is super abhorrent to me and i hope in the end these people who do such terrible things will get their just reward. Have a great weekend.

The Chinese are always worried about their sex drive yet the country is over flowing with people and they encourage abortions. And now this. Sick, sick people.

I really don't know what to say.... If I saw this on an episode of "Criminal Minds" I'd think they had gone too far.
