It was Tom Cruise who first made placenta semi-fashionable with his highly controversial statement that he intended to eat the placenta once Katie Holmes had given birth. As far as I am aware, he has neither confirmed nor denied having done so and no further mention was made of this.
I did however come across this gem of an article on Slashfood regarding the use of placentas as beauty products. The article first appeared on InventorSpot and I have to say I’m quite freaked out by it. Granted they use pig placentas but there’s still something slight…freaky…about the whole thing. The products can be eaten, drunk and rubbed into your body and is available in a delightful peach aroma. Hmm…peach placenta…yummy!!!
So…would you? Smear yourself in peach placenta? Or ingest it? Peach placenta pie?
