Mom Wants To Ban Book About Cervical Cancer

"A Tennessee woman is claiming that The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a biography of a black woman whose cervical cancer cells were taken without her consent and used for medical research (a book available in nearly every airport), is “pornographic.” Jackie Sims says her 15-year-old son shouldn’t have been assigned the book, and, for good measure, that it should be banned from her local school district. Earlier this week, Sims told Knoxville’s WBIR-TV that Henrietta Lacks, written by Rebecca Skloot, shouldn’t have appeared on her son’s summer reading list, because it makes reference to the fact that women often have cervixes and even vaginas. From WBIR: “It could be told in a different way,” she said. “There’s so many ways to say things without being that graphic in nature, and that’s the problem I have with this book. One might argue that the truly appalling thing in the book is that neither Lacks nor her family ever gave consent for her cells to be used. Long after she died of cervical cancer in 1951, the entire medical establishment made both enormous scientific gains and enormous financial ones from her body."* Read more here: http://jezebel.com/mother-says-book-on-stem-cell-research-is-too-pornograp-1729541630 Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

The IMMORTAL BLACK WOMEN who's CELLS changed the WORLD !!!True Story!!! (intro)
 
04:54
Henrietta Lacks (August 18 (?), 1920 October 4, 1951) was the involuntary donor of cells from her cancerous tumor, which were cultured by George Otto Gey to create an immortal cell line for medical research. This is now known as the HeLa cell line. Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first "immortal" human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years. If you could pile all HeLa cells ever grown onto a scale, they'd weigh more than 50 million metric tons—as much as a hundred Empire State Buildings. HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bomb's effects; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions. Yet Henrietta Lacks remains virtually unknown, buried in an unmarked grave. Now Rebecca Skloot takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the "colored" ward of Johns Hopkins Hospital in the 1950s to stark white laboratories with freezers full of HeLa cells; from Henrietta's small, dying hometown of Clover, Virginia—a land of wooden slave quarters, faith healings, and voodoo—to East Baltimore today, where her children and grandchildren live and struggle with the legacy of her cells. Henrietta's family did not learn of her "immortality" until more than twenty years after her death, when scientists investigating HeLa began using her husband and children in research without informed consent. And though the cells had launched a multimillion-dollar industry that sells human biological materials, her family never saw any of the profits. As Rebecca Skloot so brilliantly shows, the story of the Lacks family—past and present—is inextricably connected to the dark history of experimentation on African Americans, the birth of bioethics, and the legal battles over whether we control the stuff we are made of. Over the decade it took to uncover this story, Rebecca became enmeshed in the lives of the Lacks family—especially Henrietta's daughter Deborah, who was devastated to learn about her mother's cells. She was consumed with questions: Had scientists cloned her mother? Did it hurt her when researchers infected her cells with viruses and shot them into space? What happened to her sister, Elsie, who died in a mental institution at the age of fifteen? And if her mother was so important to medicine, why couldn't her children afford health insurance? Intimate in feeling, astonishing in scope, and impossible to put down, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks captures the beauty and drama of scientific discovery, as well as its human consequences.

http://www.amazon.com/Cells-Henrietta-Lacks-Nishi-Singh-ebook/dp/B00NGWSMD6/ Henrietta Lacks was a black woman who died of cervical cancer in 1951 at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Her cervical cells were taken and grown in culture by a scientist called George Otto Gey. He called it “HeLa” using the first two letters of the first and last names. Her cells were grown commercially and companies made lots of money from her cells without Henrietta’s or her family’s consent. Sadly, the Lacks families had no clue about the existence of her cells till a few years ago. They are so poor that they can’t even afford health insurance.

Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQubZHrCvpeY8nXNZ2pQPyA?sub_confirmation=1 The story of Henrietta Lacks is as astounding as it is miraculous. A poor, black tobacco farmer from southern Virginia, Henrietta was diagnosed with a type of cervical cancer that was extremely aggressive. Scientists had been trying to cultivate human tissue in the lab for many years without success. But after Henrietta’s tumor was biopsied, the answer finally came. The events that followed created a ripple effect so great that the world of medicine was never the same. 10 Henrietta’s Tumor Produced The First Immortal Human Cells Grown In Culture In January 1951, Henrietta made the journey to Johns Hopkins Gynecology Clinic after she began bleeding profusely. She received her cervical cancer diagnosis, had a small sample taken of her tumor, and was given radiation and surgical treatment. Unfortunately, Henrietta’s cancer spread so quickly that nothing could be done to save her. She died in October that year. Henrietta’s tissue sample was sent to Dr. George Otto Gey, the head of tissue culture research at Johns Hopkins. For years, Gey had been trying to produce a line of cells that could live eternally in a laboratory environment. At last, he succeeded by using his own cultivation technique. It involved bathing the cells in a fluid of chicken plasma, beef embryo extract, and human placental cord serum. Upon observation, Gey discovered that Henrietta’s cells were rapidly and continuously multiplying. In less than two years, Henrietta’s tissue samples were packaged carefully and distributed all around the world. The cells were called “HeLa” cells after the first two letters of Henrietta’s first and last names. It should be noted that the number of HeLa cells grown to date spans more than 105 kilometers (65 mi), capable of wrapping around the Earth’s equator more than three times. Despite being cancerous, HeLa cells behaved like normal cells in the body. This allowed scientists to learn how they reacted in certain environments. Research possibilities that were once off-limits or unethical suddenly became a reality as scientists started to understand how cell division occurred or how a virus affected a cell. One woman’s tragic end was the beginning of a remarkable future in science and medicine. 9 Her Cells Were Taken Without Her Knowledge Or Consent In the 1950s, it wasn’t considered unethical to use someone in a scientific study without his permission or to provide unauthorized medical treatment. There were no laws to protect the rights of people like Henrietta who had their privacy violated by researchers. Dr. Gey initially attributed the scientific miracle to an imagined woman named “Helen Lane” in attempt to conceal Henrietta’s true identity. It wasn’t until many years later that the truth came to light. Although Henrietta did not receive the recognition that she rightly deserved at the time, Gey seemingly had the right intentions. He is said to have devoted his life to culture research, going so far as to use his family and himself for hi #AmazingFactsAbout, #ImmortalCells, #HenriettaLacks #amazing, #tissue, #cell, #scientists, #hela, #henriettas, #lacks, #facts, #research, #henrietta, #cancer, #cells, #family, #immortal

58:46
In 1951, a woman died in Baltimore, America. She was called Henrietta Lacks. These are cells from her body. They were taken from her just before she died. They have been growing and multiplying ever since. There are now billions of these cells in laboratories around the world. If massed together, they would weigh 400 times her original weight. These cells have transformed modern medicine, but they also became caught up in the politics of our age. They shape the policies of countries and of presidents. They even became involved in the cold war because scientists were convinced that in her cells lay the secret to how to conquer death. "It was not like an ordinary cancer. This was different, this didn’t look like cancer. It was purple and it bled very easily on touching. I’ve never seen anything that looked like it and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything that looked like it since, so it was a very special different kind of, well, it turned out to be a tumor." –Dr. Howard Jones, Gynecologist.

MEETING HENRIETTA LACKS' FAMILY x Vlog #2
 
09:59
Hey everyone! My name is Mona and I'm a first year medical student. In honor of black history month I wanted to share this really cool opportunity I had to meet the family of Henrietta Lacks and Rebecca Skloot, the author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. I hope this vlog was both educational and insightful. Comment down below if you have a questions or opinions, I'll do my best to reply to everyone! Background information on Henrietta Lacks and HeLa cells: Henrietta Lacks was an African American woman who's tissue samples led to the discovery of the first regenerative cell line known to man. So why was this such a big deal? In order to learn about how human cells work and how diseases and treatments affect humans, medical researchers must grow cells in the lab. Prior to the discovery of Henrietta's cells (now termed HeLa cells), scientists had been trying to grow cells in the lab for decades without success. HeLa cells were the first cell line discovered that could regenerate indefinitely, making them “immortal” and useful in the study of numerous diseases. In 1951, a scientist at Johns Hopkins Hospital discovered these regenerative cells using tissue that was taken from Henrietta (without her consent) while she was being treated for cervical cancer. Her cells quickly became invaluable to medical research—yet she was not credited as the donor for decades. Little was known about Henrietta or where HeLa cells came from prior to release of Rebecca Skloot's book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. HeLa cells have arguably been the greatest discovery in modern medicine and medical research, yet neither Henrietta nor her family were ever compensated for their contributions. HeLa cells were essential to developing the polio vaccine and have been used to study HIV, herpes, Zika, measles, and mumps to name a few. HeLa cells were the first human cells to be sent into space in order to see what would happen to cells in zero gravity. Countless scientific developments used HeLa cells, including cloning, gene mapping and in vitro fertilization. Additionally, Henrietta's story brings up a lot of concerns of medical ethics and the laws behind obtaining proper consent in medical research.

Get this audiobook title in full for free: http://jren.us/az/b0186ce09u Narrated by Voice Cat LLC by Doug Spence Duration 1 hr and 1 min Rebecca Skloot and her best seller, The Immortal life of Henrietta Lacks, has created a lot of interest in the immortal HeLa cells that were taken from a 31-year-old black woman called Henrietta Lacks without her family's consent at the Johns Hopkins Hospital at Baltimore in 1951. She describes the story of how Henrietta Lacks died and how her cells were sent around the world for medical research. She goes through the life stories of Henrietta and the Lacks family and the pain they endured when they found out about Henrietta's cells. Skloot's narration of the entire account is powerful, emotional, painful and even heart breaking. Her book has become a notable science reading for high school children and science undergraduates in the United States. And rightly so, Henrietta's story is a case of medical racism, violation of ethical obligation, segregation, ignorance, poverty and painful American history. Today, HeLa cells are the most widely used cell line in the world and has been instrumental in many of the world's medical discoveries. It was the first cells to be sent to space, has helped eradicate polio and has been used in 70,000 medical studies including the development of drugs for herpes, Parkinson's disease, leukemia, and influenza. The title The Immortal life of Henriette Lacks actually refers to the immortalization of cancer cells and we look at how HeLa cells are cultured and are able to divide indefinitely. This audiobook looks at the life of Henrietta Lacks and describes HeLa cells in more detail.

Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Rebecca Skloot http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1400052173?ie=UTF8&tag=astrprojguid-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=1400052173 Science journalist Skloot makes a remarkable debut with this multilayered story about faith, science, journalism, and grace. It is also a tale of medical wonders and medical arrogance, racism, poverty and the bond that grows, sometimes painfully, between two very different women—Skloot and Deborah Lacks—sharing an obsession to learn about Deborah's mother, Henrietta, and her magical, immortal cells. Henrietta Lacks was a 31-year-old black mother of five in Baltimore when she died of cervical cancer in 1951. Without her knowledge, doctors treating her at Johns Hopkins took tissue samples from her cervix for research. They spawned the first viable, indeed miraculously productive, cell line—known as HeLa. These cells have aided in medical discoveries from the polio vaccine to AIDS treatments. What Skloot so poignantly portrays is the devastating impact Henrietta's death and the eventual importance of her cells had on her husband and children. Skloot's portraits of Deborah, her father and brothers are so vibrant and immediate they recall Adrian Nicole LeBlanc's Random Family. Writing in plain, clear prose, Skloot avoids melodrama and makes no judgments. Letting people and events speak for themselves, Skloot tells a rich, resonant tale of modern science, the wonders it can perform and how easily it can exploit society's most vulnerable people. (Feb.) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From a single, abbreviated life grew a seemingly immortal line of cells that made some of the most crucial innovations in modern science possible. And from that same life, and those cells, Rebecca Skloot has fashioned in The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks a fascinating and moving story of medicine and family, of how life is sustained in laboratories and in memory. Henrietta Lacks was a mother of five in Baltimore, a poor African American migrant from the tobacco farms of Virginia, who died from a cruelly aggressive cancer at the age of 30 in 1951. A sample of her cancerous tissue, taken without her knowledge or consent, as was the custom then, turned out to provide one of the holy grails of mid-century biology: human cells that could survive--even thrive--in the lab. Known as HeLa cells, their stunning potency gave scientists a building block for countless breakthroughs, beginning with the cure for polio. Meanwhile, Henrietta's family continued to live in poverty and frequently poor health, and their discovery decades later of her unknowing contribution--and her cells' strange survival--left them full of pride, anger, and suspicion. For a decade, Skloot doggedly but compassionately gathered the threads of these stories, slowly gaining the trust of the family while helping them learn the truth about Henrietta, and with their aid she tells a rich and haunting story that asks the questions, Who owns our bodies? And who carries our memories? --Tom Nissley

In 1951, Henrietta Lacks, an African-American woman, died at Johns Hopkins Hospital from a severe case of cancer. There were cells taken from her cervix without her permission, that turned out be to the first cells to be kept and grown globally. They led to research and medical discoveries in cancer, HIV and gene mapping. Until 2013, no attempt had been made to compensate or include Lacks and her family in these processes. In light of Mother's day, we celebrate the little known mother of medicine. This play was performed at HIFA this year by Adura Onashile, and tells the story of the origin of the HeLa cell line.

Oprah Winfrey and Rose Byrne of Henrietta Lacks
 
02:33
The case of Henrietta Lacks and the cancer cells harvested from her biopsy, which became the source of an “immortalized” cell line used by science research labs worldwide, sits squarely at the crossroads of science, ethics and racial identity in America. For all the scientific advances that came from using the cells unbeknownst to the patient or her family, the story, first told in depth by reporter Rebecca Sloot, is emblematic of the sometimes-equivocal ethics that bind scientific research. Especially given disturbing precedents like the Tuskegee syphilis experiment on unwitting African Americans in the thirties, the Lacks case is weighted by questions of racial identity and medical justice. All in all an enticing subject for Oprah Winfrey who stars as Lacks’ daughter Deborah, as well as produced the HBO film directed by George C. Wolfe which also stars Rose Byrne as Sloot. The HFPA’s Michelle Manelis and Aida Takla O’Reilly spoke to the actresses about the project.

The C.O.W.S. THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS Part I
 
03:01:24
Host: Gus T Renegade Time: 1st November 2014 Synopsis: The Context of White Supremacy hosts our debut study session on Rebecca Skloot‘s celebrated work of non-fiction, The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks. Henrietta Lacks was a black mother of five who suffered from cervical cancer. Suspected Racists in White lab coats stole genetic material from her without consent and have used her cells – code-named HeLa – to produce vast quantities of vaccines, cancer medications, in vitro fertilization, gene mapping and cloning.

Remembering the Life of Henrietta Lacks
 
11:52
Henrietta Lacks was diagnosed with cervical cancer at Johns Hopkins. Scientists were able to multiply her cells, which have been used by researchers for decades and have played a key role in several medical breakthroughs. In this 12-minute video, Reverend Dr. Susan Roy, Director of Pastoral Care Services at the University of Maryland Medical Center, speaks about the role Lacks' cells have played in the continued advancement of medical research, as well as why it is important for individuals to remember Lacks' sacrifice.

HeLa Cell Disclosure
 
43:57
Introduced in 1951, after Henrietta Lacks died of cervical cancer at age 31, research scientists discovered something in tissue samples taken from her tumor that made vaccines as we presently know them possible. That something was given the name "HeLa cell." If you have received a vaccine in the past 50 years or so, HeLa cells are likely within you. Problem is that HeLa cells are mutagens; causing mutations in the genetic "instruction set" that governs the form and function of your body. They are also considered "immortal," because as long as there is a sufficient energy source, they will continue to function, even after the body's death. In this video, Adam Abraham introduces the "public" HeLa cell, and then hears evidence of an untold from his Canadian researcher, "GM". Learn this side of the HeLa cell story, and what you can do for yourself. For more information, visit Adam's blog: Thought For Food http://phaelosopher.com

Vaccines, Immortal Cell Lines and Cancer

Is this a risk you really want to take for CHICKENPOX?? Or for that matter measles,mumps or rubella, which you are unlikely to get and which cause mostly mild illness anyway? HeLa cells, immortal cell lines, cell line contamination and cancer: http://curezone.com/art/read.asp?ID=12&db=12&C0=735 Information from FDA on immortal (neoplastic) cell lines, safety and testing http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/ac/01/briefing/3750b1_01.htm HeLa cells and contamination: http://arpa.allenpress.com/arpaonline/?request=get-document&doi=10.1043%2F1543-2165-133.9.1463 While lab culturing may indicate that so called immortal cells are not immediately changing to overt tumor cells, it is now well known in the scientific community that after these cells have been repeatedly cultured a certain number of times, something causes them to convert to a cancerous state. Normal embryo cells presumably represent a state in development which is genetically unstable, rendering them considerably more susceptible to malignant transformation.[76] When new vaccine batches are needed, the virus is cultivated on the existing fetal cell lines, which in turn have been sub-cultured numerous times over the years. We have already discussed the absolute finite lifespan of these cell lines and we know the end of that timeline is rapidly approaching. According to the Hayflick Limit, the population can only double a limited number of times (around 50) before the cells senesce and are unable to grow any more. [77] And what of the new fetal cell line, PER C6 recently introduced to the US last year and described in our previous section? PER C6 is a designer cell altered by introducing into the culture an E1 cellular gene transformed by an adenovirus type 5 (AD 5). This transformation process turns a normal cell into an immortal neoplastic cell. In other words, PER C6 is a normal cell that has been modified to resist cell senescence. And in doing so, it introduces the potential for cancer to form in the vaccine recipient http://www.cogforlife.org/fetalvaccinetruth.htm

Involuntarily Invincible: The Lifesaving Contributions of the Immortal Henrietta Lacks
 
10:01
Created by Jordyn Williams, a student at St. Peter's Catholic School in Greenville, this documentary placed third in the nation in the Junior Individual Documentary category at the 2013 National History Day national contest. This documentary explores the legacy of Henrietta Lacks, an African American woman whose cancer cells were taken in 1951 without her consent and used by scientists to create a cell line for medical research. Her cells have been important in cancer research, in the development of the polio vaccine, and in other medical advances. Jordyn's teacher was Joe Hughes.
Rose Byrne To Star In HBO's 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks'

Rose Byrne is headed to HBO to star alongside Oprah Winfrey in the network's upcoming film "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks," based on Rebecca Skloot's nonfiction best-seller of the same name. The film will tell the story of Henrietta Lacks, a poor black woman who died of cervical cancer in 1951. Without her consent, doctors removed the tumor that killed her and used it to build a billion-dollar research industry. Byrne will play Skloot, a young journalist who formed a close bond with Henrietta's daughter. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/thr/television/~3/8lrOG4t98o0/rose-byrne-star-immortal-life-911505 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Entertainment using http://wochit.com
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks , The Mother of Modern Medicine
 
21:43
Henreitta Lacks, born in Virginia but later migrated to Baltimore, Maryland, is called the "Mother of Modern Medicine". She was diagnosed with cervical cancer by a physician at John Hopkins University who STOLE her cells, and utilized them to culture the first immortal cells (this was impossible prior to stealing Henreitta's cells which scientists have termed HeLa). Her cells enabled scientists to do the following: - Develop a polio vaccine - Make advancements in vitro fertilization - Determine the responses of the human body in outer space (her cells were actually sent into outer space) - Make advancements in human genetic mapping - Develop chemotherapy treatments - Understand salmonella, HPV, HIV, tuberculosis And more!

At the New York premiere of her new HBO film "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks," Oprah Winfrey revealed to CNN that she "didn't want to take on this role." She said, "I was intimidated by it. I was nervous. I just didn't know if I could do it." The film is based on the 2010 best-selling book that tells the story of Henrietta Lacks -- a black woman who was being treated for cancer when her cells were taken without her consent in 1951 and used for decades in research projects without her family's knowledge. "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" premieres on HBO on April 22. http://rss.cnn.com/~r/rss/edition_entertainment/~3/i81R7XrdNeU/index.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Entertainment using http://wochit.com
The C.O.W.S. THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS Part VI
 
03:12:23
Host: Gus T Renegade Time: 6th December 2014 Synopsis: The Context of White Supremacy presents the sixth study session on Rebecca Skloot's non-fiction debut, The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks. Henrietta Lacks was a black mother of five children who was afflicted with cervical cancer; she died in 1951. Suspected Racists in White lab coats pilfered genetic material from her without permission and have used her cells - code-named HeLa - to create enormous amounts of vaccines, cancer medications, in vitro fertilization, gene mapping and cloning - mostly to help Whites. Neither Ms. Lacks or her black family members received recompense for this probably act of "medical apartheid;" her relatives were not told of this theft until two decades after her death. Suspected Race Scientists continued their sleazy conduct by conducting research on her children - also without permission. Last week's segment offered further evidence of Skloot's probable Racist deflections to black pathology and uncouth, uneducated, criminal depictions of black people who do no warrant sympathy. White doctors were described as gods; black people - much like Michael Brown, Jr. - were branded devils. A profound portion of the text included the Lacks family being told that they should be proud of Henrietta's contribution to science. "I'm black and I'm proud." As Skloot is a White Woman, we'll remain hyper-vigilant for continued influence of her likely Racist perspective on the structure of this publication. The C.O.W.S broadcast , hosted by Gus T Renegade.Is engineered for non-white people,/ Victims of Racism, White Supremacy.

The C.O.W.S. THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS Part V
 
03:11:13
Host: Gus T Renegade Time: 29th Novembers 2014 Synopsis: The Context of White Supremacy hosts the fifth study session on Rebecca Skloot‘s bestselling debut, The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks. Henrietta Lacks was a black mother of five children who labored through cervical cancer; she died in 1951. Suspected Racists in White lab coats looted genetic material from her without permission and have used her cells – code-named HeLa – to produce indefinite amounts of vaccines, cancer medications, in vitro fertilization, gene mapping and cloning – mostly to help Whites. Neither Ms. Lacks or her black family members were compensated for this likely act of “medical apartheid;” her relatives were not informed of this corruption until twenty years after her death. Suspected Race Scientists continued their immoral legacy by conducting research on her children – also without consent. Last week’s session continued the pattern of Skloot sidetracking the narrative to highlight black dysfunction. The White author included a prison letter – in poor English – written by Lacks’ offspring after he killed a black male. She documented continued domestic abuse, brawls, poor medical care and lack of education that plagued the Lacks’ family. It’s unclear how this advances a book that is ostensibly focused on the contributions and significance of HeLa cells. As Skloot is a White Woman, we’ll remain hyper-vigilant for the influence of her likely Racist perspective on the structure of this publication.
