Yuck! This Australian body builder, Aaron Curtis didn't just bring his bundle of joy home from the hospital, he came back with the placenta and guess what he did with it....Well he fried it and then ate it.
The Australian bodybuilder kept the placenta in the fridge for a week, before frying it up and wolfing it down – all the in the hope of 'making some gains'.
In the interest of over sharing, he filmed himself doing it all.
“With the birth of my first child, I thought I would consume the organ that provided her with life during the pregnancy in the hope of making some gains,” he explained.
“After waiting more than a week with this placenta in the fridge, I thought I better cook it and wash off some of the slime before I eat it… to minimise the chance of dying,” he said.
After cooking some of the placenta on a hot grill, he continued: “I’m starting with a little bit, just to reduce the chance of getting botulism or something.”
After he finished chewing on a piece he said, “Tastes like liver I think. It’s not too dry in the middle. Bit over done.”
What is your take on this, and for any reason will you try this?
