Other reports show that some people make a dish that would normally contain meat, like stew or lasagna, then replace the meat with placenta.

Mmmm, Plasagna.

Ummm...point of order, it's technically the infant's placenta, not the mother's placenta. It is made from the genetic material of the infant and is expelled after birth (hence it's common name). It is, or was, a part of the infant, not the mother.

Unless she had hers frozen at birth and ate it once she reached adulthood or some such. Which would be really odd.

And I don't understand how this isn't seen as a canabilism thing. I realize in many mammals eating the placenta is a vital means of recouping a nutritional investment that would otherwise be lost, but I think we've evolved beyond that. Just order takeout if you need the calories.

Well, my dog ate the placenta after she pupped. I hope we're not comparing January Jones to a dog.

k, JJ had it freeze dried and pressed into pills. How is that even a little disgusting? The whole point of this [actually having any real benefit] being disgusting is eating it freekin raw. Doula needs some more coaching skills.

"There is certainly a potential medicinal use," Dr. David Katz, founder of the Yale Prevention Center, said of placentas last year.

At what point does 'being natural' translate into 'the influx of hormones has awakened a previously unknown mental disorder which needs immediate treatment?' Seriously, the excuses for this are insane. I don't care if other cultures--in fact, name those cultures, seriously--eat their farking afterbirth. If you're going to do something this crazy, farking own it. Don't pass it off with some excuse that makes you seem more enlightened. The last thing I need is someone eating their own waste and then acting high and mighty about it.

The same goes for the lady who played Blossom. She pulled out her Ph.D. as a rationale for breast feeding her toddler. Never mind that America is a strange psychological environment to grow up in (our attitudes about sex are strange to begin with), but adding in another factor just seems cruel. I'd question of any of these strange practices even benefit the child as much as it comes off as peer pressure mixed with an excuse to do whatever you want. It's in the same vein as some crazy Christians using children to ban shiat that offends them. None of this behavior has to do with the children, it's another convenient excuse to hide some mental disorders behind so they seem rational or allow the crazy to have another reason to rebel against sensible behavior.

I just watched Andrew Zimmern eat a 30 second old cow placenta as I was reading this article.

He then drank the cow's colostrum.

You need to take some placenta and chill out yourself.

I assume you are speaking of Amy Farrah Fowler, Ph.D.? I would submit that her intellectual superiority and desire to pass any obvious biological benefit on to her offspring speaks for itself, and could not possibly be comprehended by anyone of your bovine mental capacity.

I bet she didn't look disgusted one second while eating it. Maybe because it's soo "natural" and commonplace all over the ancient, nurturing cultures of the world.

But mostly because she can't emote one bit.

Maybe she didn't want to pay the high price for real food for the toddler.

I noticed. Both episodes were great, and most people in that office are headcases. I agree with Mrs Draper, I don't think I like anyone there. Although Joanie having a breakdown in the office because she thought she was being replaced was a funny scene.

I don't see why cannibalism is taboo in the first place. I mean there are plenty of fat people and plenty of starving people. Both of these issues could be cleared up if only society wasn't stuck in such a Victorian mindset.

I cannot eat eggplant to this day because of this CSB.

We had some cats that gave birth to kittens in our garage. So, my folks, being as progressive as they were, had us witness the miracle of birth. I was maybe 8 or 9, and had two younger sisters, so I was kind of hip to how the whole childbirth thing went down. But still, it was interesting, and we had itty bitty kittehs.

So, later on, maybe a week or two later, we have eggplant parmesan for dinner. I had never had eggplant before. So what does dickhole dad tell me?

"Oh, these are the cat placenta. It's good!"

This motherfarker also set me up one time about how he read an article in the paper how they were finding cow shiat in containers of milk, and everyone should be checking their milk for dung.
Well, we were having meatloaf that night, and unbeknownst to me, he put a chunk of meatloaf at the bottom of my milk.

Farking asshole.

I should add, I sympathize completely. One of my favorite memories of growing up with my dad is when we went canoeing on Lake Accotink in Virginia, which at the time, was infested with snakes. He thought it was the funniest thing to row right underneath the water moccasins that were curled up sleeping above the water on low hanging, thin branches.

Wow. Okay after we square up for the keyboard... You really need to have a go at the eggplant parma again... that is yummy. And I've got an awesome Indian fried eggplant appetizer that can be your eggplant gateway...EIP

I kind of fudged to make a bit of levity for story's sake. I love panko-fried eggplant, with a nice yogurt sauce and I could probably do grilled, but baked eggplant is too slimy for me.
