What are your thoughts on leaving the placenta attached to a newborn for days/weeks?

This has a name, but I can't remember what it is. It's basically leaving the cord attached and taking the placenta home with your infant. You keep it clean, put a little salt on it to keep it preserved, and once the infant's cord falls off days/weeks later, you either fry it up and eat it, bury it in the back yard, or whatever.

Personally, this sounds really disgusting. They claim it's more natural, but in nature, you would eat the placenta once you birthed it, not keep it preserved then cook it. I was reading an article a father wrote about it, and he said after a few days, the smell of the placenta kept attracting their cat.
