Grilling Season!

Mom wants to eat what???

Placenta!!!
Goats do it. Rats do it.

The Nevada woman wanted to eat her child’s placenta after birth, the hospital refused to return the organ on the grounds that it contains blood and might carry infectious disease. Though mammals ingest the placenta, the disposable sac that transfers oxygen and nutrients from the mother to the baby and removes waste, humans are a bit more discriminating. Those who do eat it generally believe it has medicinal properties such as helping with postpartum depression.

The woman planned to have her placenta dried, ground into a powder and packed into capsules.

After a baby is born, a woman’s hormonal level plunges, which can lead to a serious mood crash. The belief is that the nutrient-rich placenta, which contains the hormones progesterone and estrogen, can help alleviate symptoms of depression. The problem is that like any other body part, placentas contain a lot of blood which can carry infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis.

I’m not the least bit tempted to dine on the blood filled sac!

But I do think if you want your placenta, for whatever reason, you should be able to have it. There are no laws barring hospitals from providing placentas to patients and if Swanson doesn’t have HIV or hepatitis, what’s the risk? This seems utterly disgusting, but to each their own, right???

did you really need to include a picture on this one????

I know very little when it comes to placentas so I could be wrong but beyond disease isnt the hospital taking a huge risk in giving back something like that. One placenta back with bacteria now on it and it could kill someone.

Besides, its kind of yucky

I did in fact have to put a picture...that is just one of my things...pink and pictures!

I honestly don't know who the fuck would want it back, but if it isn't infected and it is refridgerated...there shouldn't be any problems!

I am sure it tastes just fine with a bit of lime and chilli.

I'm a bit worried about the vegetarians though. can we mebbe make some tofu placenta for them? mebbe mash up some beetroot or something?

i'd hate them to feel inadequate...

I just asked my 8 month pregnant wife how she felt about eating her placenta and the look she just gave me almost turned me to stone. That is discusting, but like you said to each their own.

Jenny! said...

JJ:
Maybe the guy who shot the Wendy's manager was trying to get some sauce for his girlfriends placenta! The vegetarians don't know what their missing!

Captain:
I was going to give you a warning at the top, but forgot! I would have kicked my fiance in the balls if he asked me that while I was 8 months pregnant!

I've read that post-partum depression can be really bad, and can lead to the mother killing her own baby! Serious shit. Is there any medical reason why only the placenta can relieve post partum depression and not shots of hormones? I think as humans, we don't really need the nutritional benefits of the placenta ;-)

How can eating something from your own body cause you harm? Its in your body anyways, right? Of course, I don't mean waste material. Oh God, this is gettin' gross!

snowelf said...

Wow...I can't even wrap my head around someone wanting to eat that!
I guess to each their own.

Though, I agree that there really was no reason that the hospital couldn't let her have it, I mean, it kinda belongs to her. And how on earth would she get an infectious disease if she didn't already have one, and if she did, it wasn't like she'd be reinfected. What a curious debate! Cause it makes you wonder...what if someone had an arm or a foot or something amputated and then they wanted to eat that?

I generally order placenta when I go out to dinner -is this wrong?

Sarah said...

that picture is testing my gag reflexes every time I see it

Brooklyn Frank said...

this is totally gross. 2 demerits for you.

Jeannie said...

I think some cultures have some ritual where they take it home and cook it like liver - supposed to be healthy. Now frankly, I think it is gross but if it came out of the woman's body and she's planning on taking the capsules herself, I don't see the problem - even if it's infected, it came from her already infected body so what's the diff? In fact, hospitals I believe make money from providing placentas to research or drug companies who extract hormones and maybe those stem cells from the cord. I think that was their real issue - lost revenue.

RAFFI said...

oh, another tasty delight that would go great with the salad dressing with a side of semen.

SMARTBuddy said...

Whoa, that was a bit intense for first thing in the morning!
Dont the scientology crew cook up their placentas? I heard they have recipies and everything; Flash fry, leave a little pink in the middle.

Yeah, I know. Urghhhh.

Ratty. said...

When I lived in England, our village doctor used to suggest, at home births, the placenta was given to your or a neighbours dog - more hygienic than putting it in the dustbin or just throwing into the street. I don't think I would trust the hospital to return the right steak to the right patient - god knows who's meat you would be eating.

Steph said...

That is the sickest thing I ever heard, but to each their own. If it comes out of your body, surely it belongs to you?

Jenny! said...

Yoda:
If eating placenta would save mothers from murdering their childen...they they should eat away!

Jenny! said...

Snowelf:
Aren't people allowed to keep their amputated fingers in those special medical jars if they want??? I guess if you want to keep and eat your placenta then you better have the kid at home!

Jenny! said...

Mutley:
How is it prepared???

Jenny! said...

Sarah:
Just stop looking at it! It's like a bad accident, you just can't not look!

Jenny! said...

Brooklyn Frank:
Not another two demerits! Dang!

Jenny! said...

Jeannie:
YOu are probably right about the money thing...shit they won't even help you in the emergency room unless you can show them your insurance card!

Jenny! said...

Raffi:
I wonder how long it would take grow mold on???

Jenny! said...

Smartbuddy:
The scientologist probably do eat it...they shove gerbils up their asses, so I guess this isn't that weird!

Jenny! said...

Ratty:
Good point...the hospitals mix up babies why should you expect them to give you the right placenta???

Jenny! said...

Steph:
Agreed! I can just imagine a tug-o-war between doctor and hungry mother right after placenta delivery!

Chris Paul said...

Fry with onions. In France if you and the dad don't take the placenta to eat you get sectioned.

Fever Dog said...

I don't see why they were all twitchy about the blood borne disease risk -- if it was her blood, surely she was already infected? You can't get doubly-infected... They just wanted to keep it for themselves, I bet.

Grilling is a form of cooking that involves dry heat applied to the surface of food, commonly from above or below.

Grilling usually involves a significant amount of direct, radiant heat, and tends to be used for cooking meat quickly and meat that has already been cut into slices (or other pieces). Food to be grilled is cooked on a grill (an open wire grid with a heat source above or below), a grill pan (similar to a frying pan, but with raised ridges to mimic the wires of an open grill), or griddle (a flat plate heated from below).
