In regard to number 24:

Placentas, including umbilical cord are also collected and sold to manufacturers of make-up.

Think about that one next time you boys give your lady a peck on the cheek.

I know this because my dad used to haul it.

Things like that are sent to Red Cross Blood banks for storage and sale.
