Illustration for article titled Screw chicken broth, Tibetan sheep placenta AIDS soup will cure what ails you

Yes, "strong Tibetan sheep placenta nourishing soup AIDS" (a.k.a. "a fish sex") is the lost miracule cure that's been right under our collective nose. Science could learn a lot from dubious translation.
