Did you do like me and have to read the title twice? I can't believe they had to file and actual warning for mothers not to consume the placenta


More and more women want to take their own placenta with them after childbirth in order to eat it for "health reasons." This phenomenon is growing, especially in the USA, but also in Europe, although physicians are increasingly expressing concerns about it. One example is the gynaecologist Alex Farr from the University Clinic for Gynaecology at the MedUni Vienna, who has now published a recent paper in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
 "Medically speaking, the placenta is a waste product. Most mammals eat the placenta after birth, but we can only guess why they do so. After the placenta is genetically part of the newborn, eating the placenta borders on cannibalism.

So ATS, do you like your placenta medium rare or well done?

Well to stay true to ATS, what if it's a conspiracy? What if it really is a superfood and they put out this article just to hoard all of the placenta for themselves?
Dang it! I demand the placenta!

Superfood or otherwise no.

I like odd foods-beef tongue, liver, other various organ meat. But I would not even try placenta, never. There isn't enough garlic butter to make it OK.

In the wild If a mother is taken while giving birth, predators consume the placenta last.

I like beef tongue, liver, heart, and soup made from bones. I like chicken gizzards cooked too. But this sounds gross, then women ewww at me eating that stuff I eat.

If I were lost in the woods with my wife, she was about to give birth I'd eat placenta.

Actually they dehydrate it, grind it into powder and add it to jello.

Nature has a reason for everything, everything serves a purpose.

There has to be a reason why animals eat the placenta, otherwise they wouldn't do it.

Animals don't do things 'just because'.
