"she was advised to take two capsules three times a day."

By a highly qualified professional, I am sure.

I've never heard of "placenta pills", but the Internet knows no bounds for "health" bullshit.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning about the dangers of taking placenta pills after childbirth after a mother from Oregon passed down a deadly blood infection to her baby.

Some new moms swear by it: taking placenta pills to boost energy, replace nutrients lost during childbirth and nourish their growing babies. But in a new warning, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging moms to stop taking placenta pills.

“No standards exist for processing placenta for consumption … placenta ingestion has recently been promoted to postpartum women for its physical and psychological benefits, although scientific evidence to support this is lacking,” the CDC says in its report.

“The placenta encapsulation process does not per se eradicate infectious pathogens; thus, placenta capsule ingestion should be avoided,” it concludes.

Placentophagy, which is when people eat the placenta after giving birth, has been around for millennia, but scientists have questioned its safety and whether the practice actually offers health benefits.

Over the past few years, it’s gained in popularity: celebrities and everyday moms swear by keeping the placenta after childbirth and consuming it raw, cooked or preserved. In some cases, companies will dehydrate the placenta and turn it into pills for convenient consumption.

In the CDC’s report, an Oregon mom turned to a company to encapsulate her placenta. It was dehydrated and turned into pills within three days after she gave birth – she was advised to take two capsules three times a day.

Well, it could be one of two things. Either:

1. A pamphlet.

2. A very thick book of things he thinks he knows, but doesn't.

I suspect #1. #2 could probably stop a Howitzer round.

I'm wondering what book they thought could stop a 50cal bullet..

To Kill A Mockingbird?

"one of the most dangerous videos ever."

Would have been WAY MORE dangerous if he hadn't hid behind a book... he had his chance and blew it.

Darwin award winner here....

Monalisa Perez, 19, was charged Wednesday in the shooting death of her boyfriend, Pedro Ruiz III, 22. According to a criminal complaint, Perez said Ruiz wanted to make a prank YouTube video of her shooting at a book he was holding in front of his chest, AP reported.

On Monday evening, Perez tweeted that the couple had agreed to carry out "one of the most dangerous videos ever." He held a book in front of himself and she took aim with a 50 caliber handgun. It ended like you'd expect.

It's a little unclear as to what exactly she's charged with, but apparently she's facing a maximum of 10 years in prison. Apparently they tested this with a book first and were satisfied that it would stop the bullet. I would think this would make a murder charge almost impossible to stick, since it would be very difficult to argue that she intended to kill him or even put him at a high risk of dying.

I've seen the mugshot of this girl - she's just a tiny thing. A 50 cal handgun is a monster of a weapon for her to fire.
