“A lament for Gandalf…
What do they say about him?
I have not the heart to tell you. For me the grief is still too near.”

Eugène-Louis Doyen was a revolutionary (if flamboyant and controversy-loving) Parisian surgeon who lived between 1859 and 1919.
Long before the Visible Human Project created its 1,871 “slices” of Joseph Paul Jernigan at 1 mm intervals, and created over 65 gigs of anatomical data (and later created 40 gigs of data with a female cadaver), Doyen presented a new way of visualizing the cadaver: longitudinal and horizontal sections, showing exactly how the human anatomy goes together in each area, without the context of seeing the full organs or bones.
Though the full usefulness of these unorthodox sections wasn’t truly appreciated until the advent of tomography in the early 1970s, they were noted to be helpful to early radiologists, and especially to the burgeoning fields of criminal forensics and forensic archaeology.

The Lannisters swindle their enemies. The Storm Kings hammer them. The Starks cut off their heads. In such company as this, were the Boltons really so…indelicate? Unlike some other houses, my ancestors earned the words, “Our Blades are Sharp.”

More importantly, humans are, uh, not kept to food safety standards. Our diets aren’t monitored or controlled, for one, and may therefore end up with not immediately detectable bioaccumulation: when intake of toxins exceeds the body’s ability to mitigate the effects.
Which is why I may or may not have yelled “LIES!” when Hannibal said “I am very careful about what I put into my body.” He doesn’t know that, unless he’s got a full toxicology lab stashed in his home somewhere.
Also, while prion diseases are rare, I’d say it’s almost a given that Hannibal has toxoplasmosis by now.
Is this why Hannibal was having a blood test in the first season?
hannibal is pretty fucking metal
