So... As some of you have read, mouse testicles produce stem cells:

And researchers are very hopefully humans will be the same way. Which will mean for the first time in all of human history, I can say, "My nuts saved someones life."

But this does have me pondering a few things about stem cells. Stem cells from my testicles will have my DNS. Will other bodies reject it? What affect would male dna in a woman have? And will we be creating man made chimeras? If this does create chimeras, what affect will this have n law enforcement when people stop having unique DNS signatures?
