China Sells Poison Pills

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 3, 2014

Chinese are so cut throat that they made pills with nothing inside. Of course nothing needed to be inside because the pill shell was toxic. It had enough chromium to rot your innards.

Leave it to the Chinese to sell a pill whose only function is to kill one’s body. Oh yeah, 80% of all drug precursors are made in China and. India, so the odds are that some of this stuff made it to us in some way shape or form.


Eleven people have been arrested for production and sale of toxic empty capsules in east China’s Zhejiang province, according to local prosecutors.

Police busted the gang, headed by a man surnamed Pan, in late July in Ninghai county together with food and drug administration officials. They seized 440,000 capsules and more than 800 kg of semi-finished products or materials in their rented workshop.

In February, the gang began to manufacture capsules with industrial gelatin, which contained chromium above norm. About 90 million toxic capsules were produced and sold before they were detained.
