I just read this book about the woman who's at the origin of the HeLa cells. I had never heard about her before.
I recommand it. It will make you think, especially about ethics.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Theory is when we know everything and nothing is working. Practice is when everything is working and nobody knows why. Here, we combine theory and practice. Nothing is working and nobody knows why.

I have looked at it several times and thought I should read it. I think I'll pick it up next time I go to the library.

Oh yes do. I'm curious to see what other people think about this.
