No it doesn't. Here's why. Blood is made up of 4 elements – red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. Most blood transfusions only involve red blood cells or plasma which do not contain any DNA at all. Whilst white blood cells do contain DNA however, even in rare whole blood transfusions there is no permanent change of DNA – it might be slightly skewed for a couple of days, however the recipients DNA takes over after a couple of days.

My apologies to those who read my blog - thank you for doing so.
Due to holidays and illness my blog has taken a back seat to other areas of my life. However, over the next couple of weeks it will resume and I will be back providing snippets of information, dispelling untruths and finding out just how things do work!

- the shower cubicle is a small enclosed space with not a lot of air circulating through
- you are naked so none of the smell gets absorbed in clothing
- water vapour easily attaches to methane molecules (smellies) making the smell more readily attach to the nostril lining, and
- the warm vapours will cause any crusted mucus in your nose to soften and disengage, providing more surface area within the sinuses to absorb the smell.
So there you have it, those smellies really are smellier in the shower!

We had a great question last week, a young listener was wondering whether Prince Leonard of Hutt was still around and if his country still existed?
The answer is yes! In fact the Principality of Hutt River is still going strong having just given out their 2008 Honours Awards.
If you haven't heard of Prince Leonard and the Principality of Hutt River keep reading because you are in for a treat. His previous name was Leonard George Casley and he was embroiled in a long running dispute with the Government of Westerna Australia over "draconian" wheat quotas in 1969. Casley and his associates resorted to a British Law (the Treason Act 1495) which allowed them to secede and declare their independence from the Commonwealth of Australia.
On the 21st April 1970 to principality of Hutt River was founded. Leonard Casley became "His Royal Highness Prince Leonard I".
They have a great website which can be found at http://www.principality-hutt-river.com/ and it is really interesting to have a look around.
