    Ooooh awesome book. So Henrietta Lacks was an impoverished black woman with very little education. When doctors assessed her cells they found astonishing variations from the norm. Scientists decided to use her cells without her permission to run tests and experiments. Eventually the scientists made some notable discoveries and got a lot of money. Lacks never got a cent. Her and her family were not informed about the use of her cells until much, much later. The cells were referred to as HeLa cells.
