Would You Eat Your Placenta?

January Jones decided to eat hers after the birth of her son and has been taking lots of flack for it in the press.

January Jones made a statement that we are the “only mammals that don’t do it” and that’s probably true. I’ve tried a lot of unusual things for my health—I even tried my breast milk—but…placenta? Anybody tried it? Considering it? Could you eat your placenta and still be vegan?

Relephant (and somewhat horrifying): Inhabitots will make you a teddy bear out of your placenta.
