  • I think it is pretty disgusting, but I don't think I would think of it is the same as eating someone's body part. The placenta is something foreign that grows inside of the woman's body to support the unborn child.

  • I have a friend that is wanting to do something with her's and I simply don't have the stomach for something like that....encapsulated maybe, but just to eat it out right....NO.....If you google placenta recipes....well just do it, you would be amazed!
