The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (4/5)

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Henrietta Lacks had cervical cancer and her doctors took cells from her without her knowledge to experiment on and these cells became huge in the land of scientific advancement.  Her family got no monetary benefit from these cells being sold all over the world.  This book is part science and part memoir but even a non-science person like me enjoyed it.  We hope to use this with our IB students in the future; there is a lot to discuss in it.

I borrowed this book from my public library.
