Ingesting the Placenta?!

As a health care professional, I am conducting ongoing research to learn more about “placentophagy: act of eating the placenta. A bizarre, barbaric practice or a smart decision? After all, the placenta provided the necessary nutrition to grow a human baby…why not replace a new mother with the nutrients contained within the vitamin rich placenta?

What do you think? Placenta stew, pop a placenta capsule, or toss it as medical waste at the hospital? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7QQMyMEI1I
