#1: My husband swears up and down that there is such a thing as a testicular transplant, and if a man receives one and has a kid, the child will be the biological offspring of the donor. True or false?
#2: I watched a documentary tonight about people who have had transplants and afterwards had memories and preferences for things they never had before. Later they found out that they were remembering stuff that happened to their donors, and had acquired some of their tastes (a love of kickboxing, for example, or suddenly liking a certain kind of food they never did before).
Surely there is something to this cellular memory thing.
So do people who receive big blood transfusions suddenly have new memories/preferences? Or does it not happen because when someone receives several units of blood, they’re all from different people and plus they never find out who the donor was?
