I really don't think anything that is excreted from your body should go back in.

It's a one-way trip.

I can't believe no one's brought up semen "consumption" yet...

women have been doing this forever. If they want to, who cares? They're not going to make you eat it.

There's no such thing as "quality E" or "D" meat; that is an urban myth.
Quote:
she was the one who opened me up to the world of the meat packing industry...which i would think is probably one of the more dangerous jobs out there. the workers are treated like crap and have to work in awful conditions, which make them prone to many accidents. it isn't that any beef industry intentionally adds human flesh to their product. it's that a number of accidents result in these conditions. i.e. performing the same swiping motion as fast as you can more than 10,000 times a day with a large weapon. thus human blood is spilled, fingers/limbs are lost, etc. and they get mixed in with the beef.
It is true that the meatpacking industry--as well as the baked goods and cheese processing industries--are in OSHA's "Top 40" industries in terms of number of amputations (though sugar processing and butter production "lead" the food manufacturing sector in overall injury rates). And actually, even the fruit-&-vegetable-preserving/manufacturing sector, though only about a third the size of the meatpacking industry and two-thirds the size of the baked goods industry, still averages about 90 amputations per year, compared to meatpacking's 120 and baked goods' 110 (per 2005 Bureau of Labor Stats figures). So, I wouldn't necessarily feel confident assuming there aren't ever "portions" of someone in my canned veggie chili or pita bread, either. I'm a little skeptical as to the alleged inevitability of someone's mangled digits tumbling freely into the cheese, pasta dough or sausage meat, though--I would really want to see data on that (well, I wouldn't really, but you know what I mean). Certainly most of these over-the-top grossout stories you see in the papers from time to time (like the woman who "randomly" found a finger in her Wendy's chili last year, and is now serving a prison sentence for staging it) turn out to be total hoaxes.

I don't question that the meatpacking industry would be an awful one to work in for most people, and I never eat beef myself. But unfortunately the reality is that mass-scale food processing industries, period, are a lot grosser and a lot less worker-friendly than we'd like to think.

While certainly distastesful, I'm not sure there is any legal, or really even moral argument against consuming something that comes from your own body.

Granted it's gross as all hell (to me anyway) but still. . .

My guess is the hospital wanted to make it crystal clear that they did not in any way willingly go along with this, in case the woman "got sick" or whatver and wanted to sue.

okay...now i feel like i'm going crazy. i am CERTAIN i saw a low letter grade on the boxes of beef i had to fetch from the freezer. i don't know if i still know the people that work there, but i'll see if i can find out. i'm not crazy i'm not crazy i'm not crazy.

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. i didn't realize the other processed foods had nearly as many amputations. it makes me want to grow my own food from now on. or better yet, eat my own placenta. at least i know it's mine.

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 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.

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.
