Michelle I think financial interest does play a big part and in this case it really should have been disclosed. Henrietta's cells were so successful and her family was so poor they could not even afford health care. Her family should have been entitled to some type of monatery amount for the success everyone else received at their families expense.

I did see that just recently like within the last few days the senate did recognize henrietta and the Hela cells.

Devlynn Allen | 8 comments Yes and no.. If they do, and when money gets involved it can destroy everyone, and create greed on innocent people, and possible ruin their lives more so , than they already were.. If they do not disclose, then more work can get done effectively, without distractions. Sometimes greed is simply just the way powerful people function, but they do get a job done .. whether it is in their best interest or others.. Scientists and doctors want to be discovered and recognized for being God.. lol.. Maybe there could have been a way they could disclose it, in a contract for all, in which it was fair.. Hmmmmlol
