Stranger than science fiction: In 1951 a new cell line were discovered that seemed to be immortal. These cells became the mainstay of scientific research, leading to more than 110,000 published studies as well as 3 Nobel Prizes. They were simply known as HeLa Cells. Her name was Henrietta Lacks; a 31 year old mother of 5 from Baltimore, Maryland who later died of an aggressive form of cervical cancer. In today's episode, we will talk about how while she had contributed so much to science and technology, her descendants struggle with educational debts attending same Universities that have used her cell lines for years.

Vaccination, Medical Racism, And The Illusion of Choice

Is there really such a thing as “choice?” Notice all the noise surrounding NBA Star, Kyrie Irving, standing for his “choice” to NOT be vaccinated. The amount of social and institutional pressure is huge. If one does not acquiesce, there are punitive consequences. Slavery was the exact same way.   This week, Dr. Venus does a deep dive into the illusion of choice, showing how those who have been historically marginalized have also been victims to “choose” a certain thing or action, or suffer the consequences. She gives examples of heartbreaking medical racism from Racial Eugenics (which Hitler modeled), the Tuskegee Experiment which sickened and killed HUNDREDS of Black Men, to Henrietta Lacks who had cells stolen for research.   Dr. Venus gives historical context as to why some Black people have a mistrust of vaccines, due to an industry that has a history of turning Black bodies into lab rats. However you feel about it, your feelings are valid. It's a hot topic, but let's talk about it.   Key Takeaways: [1:13] What is choice when there are punitive consequences if you don't comply? Dr. Venus explains how medical racism goes deep, and when we combine eugenics, even deeper. [4:22] When an NBA player recently refused a vaccine, he lost money, playing time, and he was shamed by society. Is this really a choice? He lost more than half his income due to a policy, and Dr. Venus discusses how these policies are typically created by White people in power to affect those that tend to be marginalized even more. [7:03] This perceived choice runs parallel to both slavery and reproductive rights. First, Black Men and Women had the “choice” to evade death by acquiescing, giving up their bodies and doing what White Men said in order to stay alive. Women had the “right” to choose to have a baby, but sometimes at the cost of laws being created against that, and forced sterilization. The way the world articulates it, it makes it sound that if you choose something other than what is being presented, you are going against what is good for the people. You can choose, but you just may lose your friends, job, money, etc. [9:59] It is a historical wound and a FACT that the medical industry has taken our bodies and used them for science. Dr. Venus gives the emotional example of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, with HUNDREDS of African-American men unknowingly serving as human guinea pigs. They let them die and be sick for research. We don't want to live at the effect of it or be made to feel like we are doing something wrong when we have mistrust and doubt about medicine. [16:32] Throughout history, rich White Men have tried to create the strongest race of people by sterilizing those that they deemed anything less than the best. Based on Darwinism, they sterilized over 8,000 people in the name of progress. If you were handicapped, poor, slow, of color, etc, you would have been killed. [22:04] The violation of medical ethics with Tuskegee had a direct impact on medical ethics, but how do we still trust the system today? Dr. Venus gives another example with Henrietta Lacks, a Black woman whose cervical cancer cells were taken without consent in 1951, cloned and widely used for medical research. [25:00] Whatever your choice is around the vaccine, you have every right to that. However, please know that our historical wounds are valid, and you are asking Black Men and Women to lay down logic and trust an institution that has built policies against us. [30:20] Dr. Venus knows that at some point, she may have to take the vaccine. She can't do a group Pilates class because she hasn't gotten it. That's just one example. They can take away people's rights to fly, go to a restaurant, enter a bank, etc. There's no choice. It's a delayed punitive consequence, and it's just the illusion of choice. [32:32] Black people have been lab rats for medicine in America. Even if we can't articulate it, we can feel it. As a Black person whose people have been experimented on, that is a valid truth. Do not feel pressured into a decision that you don't feel good about. [35:19] Dr. Venus does take health and COVID very seriously, and even lost her brother to it, and couldn't be there with him because of the virus, or mourn him properly, in person, with her family. What she contends with is that if you have a right to choose to wear a mask or not, why can't women choose to keep or terminate a pregnancy? If it's my body my choice for reproductive rights, what's the difference when it comes to vaccination?   Quotes: “When policies are put in place that have punitive consequences and they say you have a choice, what real choice do you have?” “If you have a right to choose a mask, why can't I choose whether or not to keep a baby?” “Do not feel pressured into a decision that you don't feel good about.” “There's no choice. It's a delayed punitive consequence. It's the illusion of choice, that is the way supremacy works.”   Mentioned: Dr. Venus Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Amazon Pilot  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Complete Series (https://www.youtube.com/c/DrVenusOpalReese) Pre-order the GurrlApp here: www.TheGurrlApp.com/presale  Free Gift When You Join The Truth Tribe The Black Woman Millionaire Hot Mess Edition   ATTENTION BLACK WOMEN: If you want to be THE FIRST to know about ALL things Dr. Venus' tech start-up, fill out the form below so you get access FIRST to updates, launches, and the behind the scene scoop! http://bit.ly/DrVenusAppInfo   RESOURCES Racism and discrimination in health care: Providers and patients ‘My body, my choice' mantra on vaccines should also apply for reproductive rights: Marvin A.

Nonetheless, Americans are discovering, many for the first time, the wide rift between the exploiters and the exploited. Then Lee gets into how vaccine passports will only exacerbate vaccine inequities, as many high-level WHO officials have warned.

HeLa cells are named after the person they were collected from originally, Henrietta Lacks. They are an "immortal" cell line that grows continuously in the culture dish. This means that the cells that exist today stem directly from Henrietta Lacks' original cell sample, which was taken back in 1951. The use of these cells today raises ethical questions, because Henrietta Lacks did not give consent for them to be collected or used. The case... Like this podcast?

Henrietta Lacks died in 1951 from a virulent cervical cancer. A sample of those cancer cells was taken at the time and the way they behave has changed medical science forever – contributing to everything from the polio vaccine to drugs for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. As the WHO give a posthumous award Claudia discusses how the Henrietta Lacks legacy raises issues of global health equity. Plus with a Malaria Vaccine given a historic green light by the WHO to protect children in Africa, what are the distribution difficulties in countries which carry the greatest burden of disease? And what’s behind the low rate of Covid-19 vaccinations in Taiwan? We hear from one resident about why she’s chosen to have a home-grown Medigen vaccine which hasn’t yet completed all its clinical trials – and another who wants to wait for an alternative. Scientists say that trials about to start in Paraguay should show whether it stimulates enough immunity to protect people in the way the AstraZeneca vaccine does.

The International Energy Agency issues a stark warning that the world's transition to clean forms of energy - principally wind, solar and hydroelectric power - isn't happening quickly enough to meet climate targets. Also in the programme: a new accord led by China aims to safeguard 30 per cent of the world's ecosystems; and the WHO honours an African-American woman, Henrietta Lacks, who died in 1951 of cervical cancer. Samples of her cells were then collected by doctors without her or her family's knowledge or consent. These became the first living human cells ever to survive and multiply outside the human body and they led to a series of crucial medical breakthroughs over the past 70 years.

Today I am releasing the first of two podcasts about COVID19 vaccination on the day before World Lung Day 2021. I talk to two experts in their fields, Dr. Gigi Gronvall PhD and Destiny Aman. Dr. Gronvall studies the immune system and is a Senior Scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and on the editorial board of the journal Health Security. She is a biosecurity and bioterrorism expert and has served as a member of the Threat Reduction Advisory Committee providing the Secretary of Defense with independent advice and recommendations on reducing risk to the United States, its military forces and allies. Destiny Aman is a behavioral science and risk communications expert running JPoint Collaborative with over 20 years of experience translating science into practical solutions to improve resilience at individual, community, and national levels. Her research has centered on developing and promoting creative adaptations to environmental risks, including natural hazards like wildfires and flooding, and now the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. She provides essential help with how best to understand the concerns people have around vaccines and how to best communicate. I found this conversation so helpful, and hope you do too! To Do: 1- Get your COVID 19 vaccine if you haven't done so yet. Learn more about the COVID19 vaccines at the American Lung Association, and find where you can get your vaccine here. 2- Reach out to your loved ones about the importance of vaccination- feel free to share this podcast or share what you've learned, especially in how to communicate more effectively. 3- Learn more about why there may be very legitimate hesitancy about the medical community, vaccines and scientific research by learning about the history of the Tuskegee experiment, Henrietta Lacks, and more. Medical Apartheid is a vital read for all in healthcare. 4- Consider a donation to the American Lung Association here, who is trying to help share accurate information about COVID19 vaccination and fund research and advocacy. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Visit blog post for more information, or go to airhealthourhealth.org.
