Placenta of Attraction
In the 2004 movie, Three Extremes, Chinese actress Bai Ling raised eyebrows playing an unlicensed midwife who makes dumplings out of aborted foetus and placentas. She sold them to rich women who believed that consuming them would reverse the signs of aging.Although Bai herself claims to be disgusted by the idea of eating placentas, there are rumours aplenty of other celebrities who do it in the hope of improving their health by regaining a youthful complexion. Singaporean actor Andew Seow,36, for one, has been waiting for years to get his hands in a placenta. He said “I have seen people who have taken it, and I believe it works.” He says he has heard stories that youthful looking Taiwanese actress Lin Ching-hsia, 53, was taught by her mother to “slice it and eat it with porridge”. Then there is another un-named actress, who, after giving birth, had “super skin, a super chest and a super butt” because she is known to have eaten the organ which is “full of amino acids and proteins”, he says.Despite being vegetarian, Seow does not baulk at the thought of consuming something which, when raw, resembles a slimy, bloody liver. “A placenta”, he says, “naturally comes out with the baby, if it is not used, it is just wasted.”
