Weird China News

Ok, this one wins my award for strangest news story from China...

Remade in China: Cadavers for shows

By David Barboza The New York Times

DALIAN, China Tucked away in the back of this coastal city's export-oriented manufacturing zone is a place that can only be described as a modern mummification factory.

Inside a series of unmarked buildings, hundreds of Chinese workers, some seated in assembly line formations, are cleaning, cutting, dissecting, preserving and re-engineering human corpses, preparing them for the international museum exhibition market.

You can read the entire article here. It is much stranger than the story about beating dogs to death which can be found here.

  • That is weird.

    Even more so considering that it's right here in Dalian.

    Not exactly how I'd like my body to be treated after I die...

  • Glad that your link didn't provide pictures. I click the link directly without knowing the word of "Cadavers". It is not comfotable to see this article, I didn't finish the whole thing...
