Heart transplants – food for thought

In Western medicine the heart is viewed as a muscular pump that sometimes malfunctions but it is also the organ which reveals our spirit and lust for life.

In the first day after a bereavement people are 21 times more likely to get a heart attack, men are twice as likely to die of a sudden heart attack with a mistress than with their wife and they are now so many cases of personality changes after heart transplants that doctors are counselling for this. There are many stories of heart transplant recipients receiving new memories with their hearts; of falling in love with the old flame of their donor, taking up the hobbies of their donor, of developing new tastes that coincide, even of changing their sexual preferences from men to women.
