From NPR: Placenta-Eating

I had no clue this was even done & just ruined my appetite for breakfast:

"Opinion: Placenta-Eating Went Mainstream When Many Doctors Stopped Listening"

[www.npr.org]

"Although there are no official estimates of how many women ingest their placenta, the Internet is increasingly crowded with placenta service providers — preparers of pills, smoothies and salves to support new mothers in the slog to recovery."

Cue the "Beef. It's what's for dinner" jokes...

I suppose if someone had a piece of their liver removed, they could fry it up with onions.

Cord blood has been used as a source for stem cells, might want to consider harvesting some blood first.

As long as it's been handled in a sanitary manner, the mother should not get sick from eating the cord and placenta. It will contain a lot of nutrients that the just born parasite had been sucking from the mother.

We use donated placenta as a training source for cadaver dogs. A much better use of what is no longer needed.

[theconversation.com]

Many biologically active substances are thought to be lost during the encapsulation process. In one of the few published studies investigating the composition of placenta capsules, only three out of the 17 hormones measured in part of the study were present in high enough levels to be physiologically relevant. Notably, two of these hormones – oestradiol and progesterone – can actually supress milk production.

...The placenta may also be a source of potentially harmful substances.

During pregnancy, the placenta regulates the transfer of substances between mother and baby. As such, accumulation of potentially toxic substances can occur. To date, there have been only a few small studies examining the toxicity profile of placenta capsules.

Reassuringly, it’s likely the concentrations of toxins such as lead, mercury, and arsenic are well within safe limits. But data is currently available for only a small, select group of elements. There haven’t been any studies to measure the levels of organic pollutants or other potentially harmful substances that may be present in the placenta.

Another concern is that placenta capsules may be contaminated with harmful bacteria. Earlier this year, an infant in the USA was diagnosed with the potentially fatal condition late-onset sepsis, caused by the bacteria group B Streptococcus agalactiae. Placenta capsules consumed by the infant’s mother tested positive for the bacteria, and were identified as a potential source of the infection.

A cow that's just had her calf will eat the afterbirth/placenta within hours of giving birth if you don't take it away from her. I've seen it happen many times over the years. Yuck raw placenta.

I've seen some of our sheep do it too.

I think it serves a dual purpose.
(1) It provides nutrients when the new mother needs it most.
(2) It somewhat reduces the risk of predators locating the vulnerable new mother and offspring.

That's TOO EWWWWW; DIDN'T READ.

Skipped all the posts in this thread on general principle.

Not gonna, nope.

Outta here!






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

That practice/habit/instinct may be common across the mammalian phylum, for the reasons listed above. My cat did it right after giving birth to her first kitten... in my lap! That was when the warm, fuzzy feeling of pride that my pet looked to me for support during a clearly stressful moment dialed back a notch or two, or more in the vernacular, I went from "Awwww..." to "Ew" in an instant. When the second kitten arrived with considerably less drama than the first had, I told the cat "Okay, you seem to have things under control now so I'm gonna transfer you and your babies from my lap to the birthin' box and let you carry on without my assistance".

You won't eat the placenta, but over easy eggs are fine? Is there that much of a difference?

There's less health risk from eggs.

Also, yes. Chickens are non-placental.
