Imagine having unique cells in your body that are in demand by scientist's and drug companies world wide still to this day and long after your death. These cells were harvested without your knowledge and as a result in some cases billion dollar companies are formed on the basis of these cells. You and your family have to go to a charity hospital when sick as you cannot afford health care costs. Some or many of you may have heard or read of HeLa cells, but until now I was unaware of these cells until I picked up the book "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by American author Rebecca Skloot. It is about the life of Henrietta Lacks and the immortal cell line, known as HeLa, that came from Lacks's cervical cancer cells. Good read. Max.
