Human Flesh Capsules from China Found by South Korea Customs Service

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012 | NEWS, SCIENCE, World with No Comments »

Human flesh capsules coming from China were discovered by the South Korean Customs Service authorities.

About 17,500 capsules that contained powdered human flesh were illegally transported into South Korea since August 2011.

Korean authorities were reportedly increasing their monitoring of shipments of drugs arriving from northeast China.

These human flesh capsules were said to contain powdered flesh made from dead babies or fetuses and reportedly cured disease and boost stamina. Health authorities however contradicted these by saying that the capsules were full of bacteria and posed 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 said.

The capsules were even dyed or switched into boxes of other drugs in a bid to disguise them. The capsules containing the powdered flesh were found both in luggage and in the post.

It had emerged in a documentary last year that human flesh capsules from northeast China were smuggled into South Korea.

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

Ministry spokesman Deng Haihua said that China had “strict management of disposal of infant and fetal remains as well as placentas”.

“Any practice that handles the remains as medical waste is strictly prohibited,” he added.

The 55-year-old Simmons was among the hundreds of cheerleader hopefuls who auditioned for the Dallas Cowboys at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Simmons, a grandmother who turns 56 this month, became a trending topic over the web in February after declaring her intention of joining the audition as Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.

In an interview with the Dallas Morning News, Simmons said that she “thought about this when I was about 22 years old. I was a single mom, and I wanted to do it.”

The 55-year-old Simmons explained that she “don’t see a number. If I do, it’s just a number. It’s not that I can’t keep up with [younger women] in the physical part of the training.”

Simmons considers the audition as “just like any other competition. There are steps to take to prepare, which is exactly what I’m doing.”

Floyd Mayweather Jr. will get the largest guaranteed paycheck in boxing history after his bout versus Miguel Cotto on Saturday night, May 5 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather, according to the Nevada Athletic Commission, will receive a guaranteed $32 million check after his World Boxing Association super welterweight championship against Cotto. Cotto has a guaranteed fight purse of $8 million.

Reports say that Mayweather is set to receive even more money from his share of the pay-per-view. Mayweather, during an interview on Tuesday, approximates his pay-per-view income to be over $100 million.

Cotto is trying to be the first boxer to win against the undefeated Mayweather who now has a 42-0 record.

The guaranteed purse for Mayweather has surpassed the $30 million guarantee given to Mike Tyson in 1997 during his bout with Evander Holyfield. However, the combined guaranteed check for the Mayweather vs Cotto fight is less than the Tyson vs Holyfield bout.

Other reports say that this could easily be the largest guaranteed paycheck in the world.
