Emily Lloyd said:
Boy, did Skloot get the story of a lifetime here. I think others might have written it better, but kudos to her for pursuing it. It's absolutely mindblowing that a huge portion (majority?) of medical research has been performed on the cell tissue of one woman, a young black mother who died at 31--and that her children never knew that modern medicine was built upon their mother's back.
