Man Who Inherited His Dead Twins DNA Failed Paternity Test Of His Own Child!

SAN JOSE, Calif — A 34-year-old Washington man’s unborn twin caused confusion for a couple seeking the results of a paternity test. The parents, who wish to remain unnamed, went to a fertility clinic and welcomed a healthy baby boy in June 2014. But the problems started when they realized their son didn’t have the same blood type as either parent. They took an at-home paternity test, which revealed the man wasn’t the child’s father, BuzzFeed reported. “You can imagine the parents were pretty upset,” Barry Starr, a geneticist at Stanford University, told BuzzFeed. “They thought the clinic had used the wrong sperm.” It turns out the man is a chimera, meaning he absorbed the genes of his twin, who died early in the pregnancy. According to a case study, the man’s DNA excluded him as the boy’s father, but still showed a relationship. “To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in which paternity was initially excluded by standard DNA testing methods and later included as the result of the analysis of different tissues. This case of chimerism yielding a false exclusion is thought to be unusual,” the study concluded.

Many men who took DNA test which the courts said were not the father could have very well been the father.  A chimera is a single organism composed of genetically distinct cells. This can result in male and female organs, or two blood types, or subtle variations in form

Meaning, you can have two distinctive blood types.  If you get tested on the left side of your body, it can produce a different DNA from the right side of your body and vice versa.

Some Chimera’s generally have checkerd looking spots on either thier stomachs or back but this is not always the case.

We know many of you watch the Maury show where the women say, ” I am 1000 percent sure he’s the father only to be embarrassed when the test results come back that the man is not the father.

Could it be possible that these women were not loose or lying and that some of these men could have possibly been Chimera’s?
