as for the other stuff: i'll see what data i can find on the human flesh getting mixed in with the foods. i wish i knew where that student was! she had all the info.

side note: in college i found a finger nail in my ice cream
remember the woman who found the fried chicken head @ mcdonald's? that was my aunt
I gotta say nobody takes a thread off the rails with more style, panache, and just plain old fun, than you.

I don't see how it could be cannibalism any more than using breast milk would be.

By the way my protein powder has colostrum in it, which is what comes in before breast milk. I don't want to know how they get it.

I think/thought hospitals let you decide what you do with the placenta. Around here anyways. Otherwise they are sold to companies that manufacture hair products etc. You can choose for it to be disposed of. You can also take it home. I know some who have planted theirs

I could never do it myself, but I see nothing wrong with it.

I swear I almost did but thought it was too obvious so I went for urine consumption instead.

You probably are going crazy, because you're attempting to interact with someone who will actually go over to the BLS site and spend half an hour doing data sorts on food industry amputation figures "just out of curiosity."

Grocery stores will sometimes say their beef is "grade A," I did look into that but it seems that's just a marketing term.

I hadn't ever heard that story, but I went and looked just now. That photo is priceless.

I have found hair in frozen stuff once or twice, never a fingernail though.

yeah i can believe the grade a is a marketing tool. but i just feel so SURE i saw grade E on the boxes. i remember thinking "wtf is E????"

i think my "going crazy" happened way before i interacted with you and before i saw imaginary letters on beef cartons. maybe this is all because of the fingernail in the ice cream.

Okay, I just went and looked at the fried chicken head, too.

im a little concern w some of the posts by the female crowd in this fourm.
i'm also alarmed at how the voting is going.
i spoke to my wife about this practice of placenta eating and she said it was common among the wiccan crowd.

we live in a troubled society.

What's the matter? Are we challenging your worldview? Maybe challenging your beliefs, since clearly, we're all just a bunch of heathens?

Edit: At the risk of being too knee-jerk, why are you alarmed, and why are you concerned?

I just don't understand why you care? Why would it cause you concern or alarm? Again, nobody's going to make you eat it!

(for the record, I've never eaten placenta, I've known people who have, I don't think it's that weird, but just not something I was interested in)

Why does this make us a troubled society? I can think of 101 things you and "your crowd" do that make this a much more troublesome society than this harmless act.

I'm like Jules and pork on this one, I just don't dig on placenta, it shouldn't be some heinous act if someone does it, especially in the privacy of their own home.
