Oh my God… people really do eat the placenta!
And as if that isn’t bad enough, there are recipes!
Studies show that most mother mammals actually do eat their placentas; it replaces vitamins and minerals lost during the labor process. Humans are one of the only mammals that do not routinely consume the afterbirth.
As George said yesterday when I told him this, “Yeah, and we used to swing naked from trees, scratch our asses and pick bugs off of each other, but we don’t do that anymore, either!”
Point taken. I doubt we’ll be serving Placenta Spaghetti Bolognese at our house. Ewww.
