Pondering the Liver

Some ancient cultures believed that the liver was the center of life. The Greeks thought that the liver was the source of love and passion. Author, Mary Roach, wrote in Stiff that if the liver maintained this prestige, cars would be sporting bumper stickers such as "I Liver-symbol NY" rather than "I Heart-symbol NY". Ponder that!

Something else I wonder about: why do people eat liver? Why eat an organ that basically filters out what the body needs to keep out of its bloodstream? Maybe it is because the onions taste better that way.

What do you ponder?
