But it reminds me of the fact that organ transfusion receivers do pick up the likes and dislikes from their dead donors.
When it was fairly new, a woman, a dancer, got both a new heart and new lungs, great success. But she started loving beer and chicken nuggets, totally new for her.
She managed to find out who was her donor, and it was a young man who crashed his motor bike on the way to buy chicken nuggets.
She became friends with his family. She wrote a book about it "A change of heart". I will try to find the author, it is on my old shelves, but not a big book, so a little hard to find just now.
Since then a lot more similar stories have come out, as transplants have become more normal.
I find that very interesting, can you guys with all your knowledge see anything in it?
Claire Sylvia is the author. You may already know about her.
