    This gives a whole new meaning to multiple personality disorder. ; )

    So does this mean that as the youngest of 5 children, I could have dna from each of my siblings ?

    I wonder how else our dna are affected.

    Interesting research. Tx for posting this. X

    re "Later studies added support to the idea that cancer is a result of mutations in specific cells." - this actually may not be so, say the very latest studies :) In fact many genetic mutations found in various diseases may well turn out to be false positives (ie not linked to pathology at all). Wait and see ...
