"I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti."
Great line from Silence of the Lambs everyone knows. But most people don't realise Dr Hannibal Lecter is making a medical joke.
Lecter could be treated with drugs called monoamine oxidase inhibitors - MAOIs. As a psychiatrist, Lecter knows this.
The three things you can't eat with MAOIs? Liver, beans, wine.
Lecter is a) cracking a joke for his own amusement, and b) saying he's not taking his meds.
Edit: Thanks for the gold! Glad you enjoyed finding this out as much as I did.

I just stumbled over this newspaper article and thought this might be interesting to see here. In Switzerland there is a group that tries to start an initiative politically to make it possible for doctors to prescribe fitness training to people. This would mean that health care would cover all your gym expenses if this goes through. What are your opinions on this?
