Friday’s Page 69 ~ Kay’s Marvellous Medicine by Adam Kay


Meanwhile, William Harvey was starting to wonder if Galen’s theories were a load of nonsense. He thought it didn’t sound quite right that your body immediately used up all the blood that flowed through it and you then had to make new blood out of food: if that was true, then everyone would have to eat around eight hundred hamburgers every lunchtime to stay alive. Nobody eats that much (if you’re having eight hundred hamburgers for lunch, I strongly advice you to cute down) and we don’t all collapse because we’ve run out of blood, so he proved that Galen was making it all up. So that’s a custard pie in the face for Galen.
