A British woman claims her personality has completely changed after having a kidney transplant.
Cheryl Johnson, 37, from Lancashire, says since receiving the organ from a 59-year-old man even her literature tastes have changed.
She said: "You pick up your characteristics from your donor. My son said when I first had the transplant, I went stroppy and snappy - that wasn't me.
"I have always loved books but I've started to read classics like Jane Austen and Dostoevsky. I found myself reading 'Persuasion'."
The former soccer steward isn't the only person to have found their personality changed after a transplant.
US academics have come up with a theory called 'cellular memory phenomenon' to explain the changes.
