This book will not count as for our #Scarathlon theme @TheReadingMermaid , but boy it should! It‘s full of shady medical experiments, some grave robbing, some very human vampires making off with cells and blood samples, and some Frankenstein worthy cells that continue to grow to this day, infect other cell cultures like crazy, and like the ghost of their former owner will continue to #haunt medical science forever.


Addison_Reads One of my favorite books I've read this year! I think everyone should read this. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Addison_Reads I agree, this one should be a #MustRead! 1mo

Zoes_Human My cousin was floored when she read this book. She worked with HeLa cells throughout her career but was never once taught in school or at work where they had come from. 1mo
Ericalambbrown @Zoes_Human @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved this book. I graduated with my cell bio degree in 2004 and one of our professors was adamant that we knew where HeLa cells had come from. We didn‘t know the entire story until the book came out sadly, but we knew her name and respected her contribution. So, so many owe her a debt of gratitude. 1mo
