In 1951, tissue samples from Henrietta Lacks arrived in a lab. Amazingly, the cells still survive today. One book tells the story of this woman and her legacy.

I found this book very interesting it opened my eyes to how we may be being used in a research project and not even know it. I found it to be a easy read. I have recommended it to a few of my friends.
