Science: Do Women retain and carry living DNA from every man they’ve made love with?

[This is a fascinating topic. I had never heard of anything like this before, and it shows you how far the fantastic science of DNA is moving. At first I was not sure if this was a serious topic. But I checked out the 2 sources and this is definite science. I’ll be putting the 2 scientific sources below so you can check them out.

The idea that women somehow can obtain DNA from other sources and store that DNA in their own brains is incredible. Nature is fascinating beyond belief!

This is the first time I’ve come across this idea before. I have heard of something almost similar, but I can’t remember the word for it, so I’ll describe it. I have heard that apparently Russian/Soviet scientists discovered that if a woman has sex with a man of another race, that somehow it actually affects her body in some way and her body retains some kind of “memory” of it. I just can’t think of the term I was told. Perhaps some of you can drop some comments. The moment I see the word I’ll recognise it.

This entire topic of whether women can acquire DNA from sources other than their parents is fascinating. The strong suggestion below is that the only possible workable mechanism is sex. From these science articles that does seem like the most likely conclusion. But you never know what other twists exist in this. This would be a most fascinating topic to follow up on.

One explanation which I can’t make sense of is this term “unrecognized spontaneous abortion”. How can an abortion be unrecognised? Would this apply to a time very early in a woman’s pregnancy? I did a bit of digging and found this:

I found this: The study confirmed what many scientists have long suspected: The female body discards a large percentage of its fetuses in the first month or so after conception. Source: MOST MISCARRIAGES GO UNRECOGNIZED, STUDY SAYS –

So it seems from the above that “unrecognised spontaneous abortion” may be much more common than we realise. So that appears to me to indicate (if I understand this correctly), that a woman could get DNA from a fetus she had, which aborted (knowingly or unknowingly). In the article published below, the (non-scientific) writer assumes that sex is the most common possible source of the DNA. It does appear to me as if there is a possibility that the writer below is correct in his/her assumptions that sex could be the most likely source of this DNA. Anyhow, the topic is fascinating and I look forward to getting more information/updates on this in the future. I’m very fascinated by DNA and how it works.

Here are the 2 scientific sources they got this information from:
o Male microchimerism in women without sons: quantitative assessment and correlation with pregnancy history (2005) –
o Male Microchimerism in the Human Female Brain (2012) –

In the science article (above) from 2012 it says: “We report that 63% of the females (37 of 59) tested harbored male microchimerism in the brain. Male microchimerism was present in multiple brain regions. … In conclusion, male microchimerism is frequent and widely distributed in the human female brain.”

That is very fascinating. This seems to be quite common. But does this mean that every time a woman has unprotected sex that some of the male’s DNA can go into her brain? Perhaps not.

The first article above is from 2005. So I would think that by now there must be much more new information on this topic.

NB: A friend of mine told me that scientists often know things that can be quite shocking, and they keep it to themselves if they believe it could cause problems. He told me that he’d come across a reference that as far back as the 1940s, that scientists knew that 20% of the children of married women were fathered by a man the woman was NOT married to at the time. He said that the scientists kept this hushed up until the 1980s.

So I do wonder what information scientists have that would be of tremendous use to us? I suspect that with DNA and IQ and stuff like that, that scientists will be able to do all kinds of strange things that are almost beyond science fiction. Jan]

Women retain and carry living DNA from every man with whom they’ve made love with

Women retain and carry living DNA from every man with whom they have sexual intercourse, according to a new study by the University of Seattle and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

The study, which discovered the startling information by accident, was originally trying to determine if women who have been pregnant with a son might be more predisposed to certain neurological diseases that occur more frequently in males.

But as the scientists picked apart the female brain, the study began to veer wildly off course. As it turns out, the female brain is even more mysterious than we previously thought.

The study found that female brains often harbor “male microchimerism“, or in other words, the presence of male DNA that originated from another individual, and are genetically distinct from the cells that make up the rest of the woman.

According to the study: “63% of the females (37 of 59) tested harbored male microchimerism in the brain. Male microchimerism was present in multiple brain regions.”

So 63% of women carry male DNA cells that live in their brains. Obviously the researchers wanted to know where the male DNA came from.

Anyone care to guess? From the women’s fathers? No. Your father’s DNA combines with your mother’s to create your unique DNA. So where else could it come from?

Through the study the researchers assumed that the most likely answer was that all male DNA found living in the female brain came from a male pregnancy. That was the safe, politically correct assumption. But these researchers were living in denial.

Because when they autopsied the brains of women who had never even been pregnant, let alone with a male child, they STILL found male DNA cells prevalent in the female brain.

At this point the scientists didn’t know what the hell was going on. Confused, they did their best to hide the evidence until they could understand and explain it. They buried it in numerous sub studies and articles, but if you sift through them all you will find the damning statement, the one line that gives the game away and explains exactly where these male DNA cells come from.

What are they so afraid of?

“CONCLUSIONS: Male microchimerism was not infrequent in women without sons. Besides known pregnancies, other possible sources of male microchimerism include unrecognized spontaneous abortion, vanished male twin, an older brother transferred by the maternal circulation, or SEXUAL INTERCOURSE. Male microchimerism was significantly more frequent and levels were higher in women with induced abortion than in women with other pregnancy histories. Further studies are needed to determine specific origins of male microchimerism in women.“

So according to the scientists, the possible sources of the male DNA cells living in the women’s brains are:

  • an abortion the woman didn’t know about
  • a male twin that vanished
  • an older brother transferred by the maternal circulation
  • sexual intercourse

Considering the fact that 63% of women have male DNA cells residing in the recesses of their brain, which of the above possibilities do you think is the most likely origin of the male DNA?

The first three options apply to a very small percentage of women. They couldn’t possibly account for the 63% figure. The fourth option? It’s rather more common.

The answer is 4. Sex.

This has very important ramifications for women. Every male you absorb spermatazoa from becomes a living part of you for life. The women autopsied in this study were elderly. Some had been carrying the living male DNA inside them for well over 50 years.

Sperm is alive. It is living cells. When it is injected into you it swims and swims until it crashes headlong into a wall, and then it attaches and burrows into your flesh. If it’s in your mouth it swims and climbs into your nasal passages, inner ear, and behind your eyes. Then it digs in. It enters your blood stream and collects in your brain and spine.

Like something out of a scifi movie, it becomes a part of you and you can’t get rid of it.

We are only now beginning to understand the full power and ramifications of sexual intercourse.


Incredible Nature: How a Daredevil Raccoon Pulled Off a Terrifying 23-Story Climb!

[Nature is incredible. And we are a part of nature. We too can be incredible if we are correctly motivated. Jan]

Not all heroes wear capes, but most of them do wear masks. Even raccoons.

Yesterday (June 12), a daredevil raccoon in St. Paul, Minnesota, captivated the Internet by climbing 23 stories up a vertical concrete wall. The raccoon, now known as MPR raccoon in honor of the Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) employees who spotted the critter scaling a nearby skyscraper, became an instant social media star as viewers around the world rooted for its safe return to the ground. [The 5 Smartest Non-Primates on the Planet]

The raccoon rested on various window ledges during its daring climb (resulting in some amazing photos) and ultimately reached the building’s roof this morning around 3 a.m. local time. At the end of the day, MPR raccoon had spent nearly 20 hours scaling the concrete building — alone, afraid and totally bereft of food and water.

The raccoon has been safely captured, but many questions remain. Why would a raccoon climb 23 stories straight up instead of climbing down? And how is this even possible? According to Minnesota Department of Natural Resources employee Bryan Lueth, it may be a simple mix of instinct and anatomy.

“If I had to come up with a scenario,” Lueth told MPR, “I would say it was maybe holed up in an alley … ran out onto the sidewalk, and then there’s all these people around. It’s like ‘Ah!’ The natural instinct is to climb.”

Raccoons are notoriously skilled climbers. Because many raccoons make their dens near populated human settlements where garbage is plentiful, they’re used to scurrying up trees, chimneys and buildings to stay out of harm’s way, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFD) wrote on its website.

Nature has equipped raccoons well for this job. Sharp, nonretractable nails cap each of their long fingers and toes, and are perfect for digging into craggy surfaces like trees and cliffs. Unlike your house cat, raccoons can even rotate their back paws 180 degrees to climb down surfaces headfirst, the WDFD wrote.

This means raccoons can, and will, climb pretty much anything they can get their paws around —  your car, your garbage can or even your modest metropolitan skyscraper. One famous 1907 study on raccoon intelligence marveled at the animal’s ability to climb the bare steam pipes in the laboratory “with as much ease as though they were the trees of the forest.” (The study also found that raccoons are ticklish … Science was different back then.)

“Digging into tree bark is certainly a little bit easier than hard stone,” Lueth said, “but there must’ve been enough cracks or crevices or textures where [MPR raccoon] could get a grip [on the building].”

While some are hailing MPR raccoon as the hero Gotham City deserves, it seems the critter may have just been raccooning the only way raccoons know how. And that’s good enough for us.


Top Secret: How the Titanic was really discovered…

[I keep trying to tell people that a LOT more SECRET stuff goes on than they realise and it only comes out into the public arena when they decide it is time to tell the story! Secrets CAN and ARE kept SUCCESSFULLY, much more times than you can believe! Look at an unexpected side to a story you never expected! The real mission was to hunt for sunken nuclear submarines! The Titanic was just a side dish! Look at how this secret has been kept for over 30 years! It is only now coming out because the Navy has decided to tell it! Ponder that. These kinds of things are happening all the time across the world. Jan]

(Newser) – The story of how the Titanic was found is widely known, but some of the most interesting details are only now emerging, reports USA Today. A new exhibit at National Geographic Museum in Washington, DC, reveals the once top-secret story. “The Navy is finally discussing it,” Robert Ballard tells National Geographic. Ballard is the oceanographer and Navy commander who found the wreck in 1985. The exhibit, Titanic: The Untold Story, explains how the Navy had commissioned Ballard to explore the wreckage of two nuclear submarines. The subs were resting on the floor of the North Atlantic Ocean, and the Navy wanted to determine if the nuclear reactors on board were potentially dangerous and why the subs had sunk. Ballard asked if he could look for the Titanic after he had completed the mission (which would be the first of two) because he believed the passenger liner was located between the two subs. Deputy chief of naval operations Ronald Thunman agreed, never suspecting that Ballard might be successful.

“I was a little short with him,” recalls Thunman, who stressed that Ballard’s mission was to study the sunken warships, not look for the Titanic. Ballard studied every detail of the Titanic and decided to seek not the ship itself, but the debris field. He theorized that the ship had broken in half and left a debris trail as it sank. He approached it as if he were photographing a deer hiding in winter: “I’d look for its footprints and follow its footsteps,” he says. At 2am on Sept. 1, 1985, submersible robotic technology began delivering images of the Titanic’s boiler. “We were at the very spot the Titanic sank,” Ballard recalls. “We were there.” Of course, the Navy hadn’t expected Ballard to find the Titanic, so when that happened, “they got really nervous because of the publicity,” Ballard says. The exhibit will be on display through Jan. 6, 2019.
