Cod-Liver Oil Sans Frontieres

Yesterday a new crime was invented -- cod-liver oil smuggling. Russian border guards Tuesday captured smugglers off the Pacific Coast attempting to ship over 50 tons of cod-liver oil abroad, Itar-Tass reported. They were caught pumping the cod-liver oil from the ship Pavel Postyshev to a fishing vessel heading for a nearby Korean port. As contraband goes, cod-liver oil is an unlikely subject. It is used in some food processes but its most notorious use is as a form of daily torture for generations of children. In the West they have been force-fed the vitamin-rich yellow oil by parents hoping it would ward off diseases like the common cold and flu.
