Dr. Oz, Is it possible to take on the traits of my organ donor?
DR. OZ: Well it's possible but I think it's improbable and I've done a lot of heart transplants. What ends up happening a lot after transplants is we give you steroids and a lot of other very powerful medications. And it will change our personalities. It might change it coincidentally to be like the person who's donated their heart very kindly to you. But I think that the basis of memory in our bodies is so subtle in how you behave, but I am happy you're doing well.
