I've never met anyone who did so, but have heard of people who do so...vaguely recall it being fried, like bacon, in one "recipe"...

But saving the cord for later stem cell use via deep freezing is something that kinda makes sense...

I heard that was a rather common thing to do in the U.K., for the placenta not the umbilical cord - boil it into a soup or something.

Donation of umbilical BLOOD is something entirely different than this, most likely Scientology-made, nonsense.

Don't be daft.

As for Cruise, much though I dislike him, it seems fairly clear that he was joking when he said this, and has since denied it when the media made a big deal of it.

Its not Scientology based, and its pretty common actually although not well known publically. The placenta is full of nutrition so it isnt exactly a bad thing, tho I wouldnt do it.

Thank you for that. Eating the placenta is actually done in some places, although usually by the mothers and not on a very widespread base, but the most references I have heard about it have been from U.K. sources so I assumed that was the place where it occurred the most often. Note that I didn't say it was necessarily wrong to eat your own placenta, no matter how disgusting it is. Eating someone else's though, is not the same thing...

That still doesn't mean he's not an idiot for saying that. Tom Cruise should think before he speaks.

The thought of even eating that is still disgusting, despite that.

About as common as a black, Jewish Pope! Honestly, where do you get your information? no 

To the best of my knowledge, this has only been done once in living memory. Some posh twat called Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall cooked one for a tree-hugging, Earth-Mother type on TV. Caused a bit of a storm.

"Gutsiest move I ever saw Mav!"

As the website did not provide an actual quote from an interview with Tom or any other verification I'm afraid I'm going to have to dismiss this one as tabloid journalism. I simply don't believe it.

I am not a scientologist but I can tell you for sure it is not a 'scientology thing' by any means. The silent birth is - no audible 'engram content' associated with the trauma of birth. That goes back to the beginning of L. Ron Hubbard's "Dianetics"

I'm pretty sure he was joking with that one. Last night on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart made fun of him for this bit, but acknowledged that while Cruise was joking with this bit, people were taking him seriously and he had to deny it instead.

It's quite common to see in the ZOO chimps or gorillas eating their own feces... maybe Tom should also consider that as an addition to his diet!?!?

So in fact it is really going back in time (around 9 months) and gobbling down his own sperm leftovers and the motherly goods of his baby's mother. Yum!!!
