Undergraduate Research In The News
As influential celebrities like Kim Kardashian and January Jones have done it just like other mammal species, it has become popular for new mothers to eat their placentas after giving birth. Businesses have even capitalized on the trend by offering freeze-dried placenta pills to the market.
Health officials are warning new moms about the potential dangers of taking pills made from their placenta, after an Oregon infant's infection was tied to the practice. Trendy among some mothers, the practice of eating the placenta after giving birth is believed by some to help with postpartum depression, breast milk production and energy levels. It's taken off in the last decade, touted by some celebrity moms and promoted on the internet. Now tens of thousands of U.S. moms do it, according to a rough estimate by researchers at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
