Re: human nasal polyp tissue (for eosinophils)

I think that of the choices available to an ordinary surgical pathologist, 
I'd prefer nice juicy nasal polyps, selected for having a lot of eosinophils 
and for not having been decalcified.

In the GI tract, I'd want well preserved right colon, selected for having a 
lamina propria well populated with eosinophils and plasma cells. A promptly 
prepared right colon resection specimen (for cancer) would supply everybody 
on this list with eosinophils for the rest of their careers.
