'Magic' Water discovered in North Korea

While browsing through the KCNA website, I came across an article titled Chongsaengsu, Medicinal Water. The water supposedly contains over 80 elements. The over the top claim comes from the illnesses it allegedly cures "hepatitis, pancreatitis, gastroenteritis, diabetes, nephritis, pyelitis, hypertension, arteriosclerosis, myocarditis, myocardial infraction, leucopenia and cancerous diseases and the prevention from the radiation damage." Obviously these claims are medically unsubstantiated, but I found the article amusing to say the least. The water literally cures everything and helps intellectual development of children, strengthens the immune system, and prevents aging. Now only if we could get a sip of this magic water...

Fascinating. Do you think there are any plans in the works to bottle this elixir? Who knows...sales may even supplant the sale of narcotics.
