Spanish influencer ‘cooks’ her knee cartilage and serves it to her boyfriend

Paula Gonu is a Spanish influencer and has 2,28,000 followers on social media. Recently, she went through leg surgery and decided to take local anaesthesia, which means she saw everything about how the doctor operated on her knee. Later she was given the choice to take the cartilage that has been removed from her body. To that she agreed and preserved it in a container along with alcohol. After one week of her surgery, she decided to consume it.

In a podcast, she revealed in Spanish how she told her boyfriend that she wanted to eat her meniscus, “I told him I wanted to eat it because it was part of me, and I had to put it back in my body.” Further, Paula added, “I wanted to be able to say in my head that I’ve eaten a piece of my own meniscus.”

The influencer cooked spaghetti and bolognese sauce and added her cartilage and ate up. She even disclosed that people eat worse animals’ body parts and that she did wasn’t weird. As soon as she posted it on Twitter, people started freaking out. One commented, “At what point did I decide that it was a good idea to watch this over dinner?” while another wrote, “What in the fresh hell is this?”

Paula’s behaviour couldn’t be understood as to why she decided to eat her body part but many mental health experts are concerned about this abnormal attitude that might stimulate even other people to perform such acts.
