I guess I kind of always though the placenta was like the white of an egg. Oh boy was I wrong!
Of course we know that early life stressors, including those during pregnancy, impact
long term health of the baby. Usually we think smoking or drinking, but maternal obesity is also something than can affect the child. Christian and I talk about his work trying to understand how changes in development of the placenta may increase the risk of offspring disease later life.
Aaaand… I joked about placenta recipes on the show, but I don’t think I’m going to share any links. Use your judgement. Or consider getting on the list to donate it?
