Thank you to ALL the contributors here. As a non-scientist reading the Henrietta Lacks book, many questions arose as I've been reading. You have answered many of them, and I appreciate the insight. Not that I completely understand, by any means. But I am impressed by the comments and knowledge of these contributors, and expect to enjoy this book more thanks to your information. Keep up the good (science) work. We WILL find a cure to more of these illnesses, thanks to the determination and wisdom of people like you.

My question was actually about how the cells could be useful for research on matters like vaccines and the many areas where the book and other scientific writing says they have been very helpful, standing in (or at least that how I think they're used) for normal cells. Your point on how they do not work well as stand-ins for malignant cells is a different one and had not occurred to me, though I can see the commonality. Is this a new or emerging opinion in the scientific community, or a dissenting one?
