Did You Know: The Placenta 

We all know that in Japan all people love sushi (seafood with rice)


and all Japanese people are crazy about sashimi (raw fish).


Some people even eat horse sushi (sliced pieces of raw horse meat).

But DID YOU KNOW that some couples also like to gorge on placenta sushi (sliced up placenta)
not from some poor unsuspecting mammal but their own child's placenta as a small celebration
after the birth of a child.


This delicacy rich in minerals, iron and other vitamins is said to taste a little like liver.
I wonder if it's against vegetarian ethics to help themselves to a slice.

Do you eat placenta in your country?
