After the Geys success with growing HeLa cells, other researchers began to follow suit. They cultivated tissues from their bodies and the bodies of their patients, and most flourished. Samples blossomed into healthy cell lines with a strength that often paralleled HeLas. Then, in the mid-60s, a paper claimed that many of these cells were, in fact, HeLa. A few bold researchers argued that, because of sloppy technique, HeLa had infiltrated the worlds stock of cell cultures. Few believed it. For almost three decades researchers had done complex experiments on what they thought were breast cells, prostate cells, or amnion cellsstudying the specific behavior of each different tissue type and comparing it to othersand suddenly, word was that theyd been working with HeLa cells all along. To believe this would be to believe that years of work and millions of dollars had, in essence, been wasted.
