Virus? I'm not sure if you're fluent in English or not, but if you have read
and understood the cynical and sarcastic content and messages on that site,
you'd be pretty convinced that it's a joke.

They advertise no address or contact telephone number. They don't have
online ordering. Where's the sales department?

What assures you that this site is the produce of Asia?

Successful sale of a product usually involves letting the customer have an
idea of what the finished product will look like. More likely, don't you
think, there is no sale and there is no finished product.
Given that these people are not giving people a direct sales channel from
the website and the whole things jocular style, it's reasonable to assume
that they're not selling anything. Therefore they're only presenting
information, be it for education, entertainment or sick and twisted
purposes. What's so terrible about it?
If you're that concerned about deformations, pain, etc. why don't you invest
some time into a cause that might help stop human suffering.
