  • The headline caught my attention: 'I was given a young man's heart - and started craving beer and Kentucky Fried Chicken.'

    Claire Sylvia, a 47-year-old woman who lives somewhere in the UK, had a heart and lung transplant in 1988, receiving the organs from an 18-year-old boy who had been killed in a motorcycle accident.

    Shortly after the surgery she noticed she had acquired the characteristics and cravings of the donor. She wanted a beer, she told a reporter who had come to the hospital to interview her. (She didn't like beer before the surgery.)
