Reviews for The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
This book details how Henrietta Lacks (or HeLa) had a phenomenal effect on medical research. Unfortunately it was only through her death that this happened and it is sad that her family were never fully informed of what was happening or developments that her mother helped to uncover. I think this is a great story and certainly tarnishes medical research methods.
