The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

A brilliant audiobook from Audible, written by Rebecca Skloot and narrated by my favourite Cassandra Campbell. 

This is an excellent page turner. A touching human story that challenges readers to think about many aspects of morality in our modern society. Medical ethics, racism, poverty, religion, capitalism.....

I'm no scientist, so, I've never heard of HeLa cells. I've done lots of Googling since reading this, and discovered this Youtube video. I believe this is the BBC documentary that was mentioned in the book.
