Jason Biggs ate his wife's placenta for no good reason, experts say.
A growing number of mothers have recently been choosing to ingest their own placentas - either dried, ground and encapsulated, or in smoothie - after giving birth. The practice has been the subject of widespread controversy.
In June 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a warning that linked a mother's consumption of the placenta to her baby's infection.
Many still contend that the practice has health benefits for mothers. But experts on both sides say that eating the placenta has, at best, no benefits for men.
