The super hot January Jones recently revealed that she has been eating her own placenta, and says that more mothers and women should do it.  All we can think is, yuck.

You see a new mom walking down the street pop  a capsule in her mouth.  You think nothing of it, because it's probably just a vitamin, unless it's actress January Jones then it's a dehydrated placenta pill.  That's right, her own afterbirth in pill form and ingested.

It's not exactly the thing that men want to hear, but apparently there is a growing movement of women who are eating the placenta in the pill form.  Yahoo reports that many believe that eating the placenta may benefit the mothers health, but there is very little scientific information to actually back that up.   Animals eat the placenta for extra nutrition, but generally humans don't need it.
