Matthew McConaughey saved the placenta from the birth of his son and plans to plant it in an orchard. In an interview with CNN’s “House Call with Dr. Sanjay Gupta,” McConaughey details his dream of growing wonderful placentas.
“It’s going to be in the orchards and it’s going to bear some wonderful fruit,” he says, according to an interview transcript. “When I was in Australia, they had a placenta tree that was on the river … and all the placentas of all that tribe, all that clan, whatever aboriginal tribe that was, all the placentas went under that one tree and it was this huge behemoth of just health and strength.
Great. I was a little hungry before, but now I’m starving. It’s like my mom always said. Every day begins with a well balanced meal. That’s why each morning as I kid I enjoyed a fresh plate of bacon, eggs and placenta. Mmm, the breakfast of champions.
