Smuggling of the 'Human Flesh Capsules' has increased since the first case was caught in August last year. Since then, customs officials have uncovered 35 subsequent attempts to import these pills either in travelers' luggage or via the postal system. In total, 17,451 capsules have been confiscated, although it is not known how many dead babies this represents as authorities have not DNA tested them.
The Human Flesh Capsules are sold as 'stamina enhancement' drugs, mainly to Korean men over the age of 50, who after a lifetime of objectifying women tend to be particularly susceptible to sexual performance problems, coupled with near-mystical levels of stupidity.
It is not clear why these Korean men are eating the flesh of foreign babies rather than that of pure-blooded Korean babies, but Korean women have consistently reported that their husbands have never made an attempt to eat them out, suggesting that Korean cannibals prefer foreign food for some reason.
The capsules are the latest in a series of foods and supplements believed to improve virility in Korea, which in the past have included ginseng, live octopus, and dog. As the sexually inadequate have made their way up the food-chain from plants through sea life to mammals, some said it was inevitable that it would finally progress to human flesh and cannibalism, which seems to have begun early last year.
Some of the dead-baby flesh pills are smuggled with capsules of legitimate drugs to disguise the contents, raising the risk that people may end up taking them unwittingly.
The Korean Food and Drug Administration said people should not take the foreign baby flesh pills, even in an emergency, as they are contaminated with "super bacteria" and other disease-causing organisms which could cause serious health problems. But Korea's cannibal population have hit back at the ban, saying that they are hungry. Many say they are now being forced to survive by eating at cheap meat restaurants in the Hongdae district of Seoul.
