The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot is a fascinating read. It's about a woman that had her cells taken from her by doctors without her permission. They became the first "immortal" cells grown in culture and are still alive today and have been used to help in many medical breakthroughs. The book is about Henrietta's life and about how her cells have helped science.
Now, don't laugh. I typically don't watch shows like this, but since it has to do with gymnastics I thought I would check it out since it's on streaming Netflix. I watched the first episode yesterday and even though it was a little cheesy, I will probably continue to watch a few more episodes to really make a decision on it. I just can't help but find gymnastics shows interesting!
