The cancer cells taken in 1951 from a woman named Henrietta Lacks led to numerous medical discoveries that revolutionized the medical treatments that we currently receive. But the way those cancer cells, called HeLa cells, were taken now profoundly impact some of the serious issues that we currently face. The guests on this show discuss what some of these issues are, how they affect our lives and some of the action steps we need to take.
