Om Nom Nom Nom



Placenta Helper is processed food engineered in a mad science lab and produced in an industrial chemical factory.

I prefer my placenta raw, fresh, just give me a wooden cutting board to eat it off of, a cocktail shrimp fork and a pizza cutter. Oh, and Parmesan cheese and Louisiana hot sauce.

Soak it in milk first... it cooks up like liver.

Sautee the onions and garlic first. Add the placenta when the onions just start to caramelize. Deglaze the pan with a dry red, like a Merlot or Cabernet.




With Fava beans?

Okay, lol, in all seriousness, my first impression opening the thread was they're after the stem cells.

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...



And critters eating them after kitten birth makes sense as a mother critter tired and expecting rough weeks to come they shouldnt be letting all that energy go to waste. Some critters even eat the babies if they pass, if I'm not mistaken.

Mashed potatoes and gravy. Only a serial killer would serve fava beans with placenta.... duh.

Indeed, equally as ridiculous

I do in fact live in the winter wonderland ..I have seen a bear open a van door with the handle and get in..ate someones lunch


Good thing it wasn't a stick shift then.

Nothing worse than a bear stealing your car to go 4x4ing bouncing around through the rough terrain for 4 hours, and then puking in it because they ate all your lunch before taking it for their joy ride.

You can never get that damn puke stink out no matter how much Pine-Sol you use.

Stem cells? Not enough protein.
Let"s be real! Could you imagine the number of stem cell it would take to equal the nutritional value of just one placenta?

I know several women who've done this, either cooked and eaten it, or dried it out and made capsules out of the ground up thing. They claim it helped depression or alleviated anemia, but funny thing was, they never offered up proof of better iron levels, or no head meds being prescribed. Opposites on both accounts there. Now, you'd think people would wise up and think "Hey, was I bamboozled into eating a temporary organ or what here!" Nope, they still pitched it over the years as something marvelous


In hindsight, they ain't wrapped too tight to begin with to have eaten their own organs, temporary or otherwise.

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'.

My guess is a very simple reason -- to mitigate some of that fresh new, easy kill smell permeating the habitat to predators' noses. Wouldn't shock me if it was a survival measure for the newborn animal on BEHALF of the mother, and not some nutritional aspect FOR the mother.

I mean the stem cells in the placenta.

Of course eating it will ruin that ambition, but after seeing it on South Park 15 years ago, well if its on TV it has to be real.

But hey, look at all the stuff the Chinese eat.

I think that's very plausible.

So basically, according to "science". . . the placenta is the "booger" of the uterus.

And women eat it.

There could also be a subconscious paraphelia involved in the mental mix for some of these folks. People 'consuming' their own bodily fluids isnt exactly an extremely rare occurrence.

No, that's the mucus plug. A huge (or chunky) blob of crotch snot.

I'm sure someone's eaten it, too. Plenty of lunatic ladies out there.

And DB..just because you're on a diet doesn't mean you have to take us all down with you

I'm thinking... in a hoagie with saurkraut and dijon mustard... it could be OK...

That's a very real and logical explanation. It would also tie into why the mother licks and cleans off all of the blood on the newborn too... to get rid of any fresh blood smells.

But science isn't really sure and have a number of different theories.



Personally, I'm not an organ eater of any kind. The thought of eating any animal organ grosses me right out (organs filter out garbage *barf*).

And thanks to the lovely pics posted in this thread, I won't be eating meat of any kind for a while now.



At least not until it's time for my late night snack anyways.

Could work if the whole thing comes out at once kind of like a small, gelatinous sausage. If it's more on the runny, chunky side, or just in chunks, maybe a breakfast scramble.
