Health Benefits of Eating Placenta?
So I just got done reading an article; January Jones (from the American TV Show Mad Men) Eats Own Placenta: Healthy or Ick?
I wouldn't judge anyone's choices and if there were really great health benefits who's to say I wouldn't do the same but the thought of eating placenta in spaghetti or on a pizza (according to the article there are recipes for these items and more) is not at all appealing to me. However, it seems as though most women who do "eat" their placenta do so in pill form -- and this I could do.
There are not any real health benefits noted. Has anyone done more research on the topic or done this themselves? Jones says that she takes one of the pills when she is feeling sad and it helps her.
I am really very interested in hearing everyone else's take on this or other information.
