Chemicals, EDCs, Pesticides  - 
 
A trillionth of a gram of a hormone in a milliliter of blood …is enough to alter the course of development of tissue in the fetus and lead to disease later on in life, Until plastics are tested at such minute levels, he says, we are in the dark about what levels of exposure are safe — especially for babies developing in the womb. #BPA #BPS #EDCs
In the debate on plastics and endocrine disruptor chemicals safety, policy lags behind science.

Jody Day talks about women and childlessness.... Sadly for many DES daughters having their own children is not possible! Many of us who have experienced miscarriages, want to have kids but are struggling or unable to.

Les députés ont validé l’article 45 qui stipule que les individus ayant subi des dommages corporels dus aux traitements de santé tels que des médicaments, aient la possibilité d’intenter une procédure collective (action de groupe) via une association d’usagers du domaine de santé concerné.

Over the past two decades Cassels has spent much of his research energy studying clinical research and the marketing tactics of the pharmaceutical industry, including #overdiagnosis and #screening, turning some of that research into journalism and books, including an international best-seller…

2012 Study: #DES significantly affected the musculoskeletal system of adult mice. Results suggest that environmental estrogen contaminants can have a detrimental effect on the developmental lumbar bone growth and mineralization in mice. Further studies measuring the impact of environmental estrogen mimics, such as bisphenol A, are then warranted.

DES awareness: news, updates about Diethylstilbestrol exposure, side effects, studies.
Introduction

Around the world, millions of men and women are totally unaware that they were exposed to Diethylstilbestrol DES, a toxic and carcinogenic drug prescribed to pregnant women decades ago to prevent miscarriage which has adverse health side effects on 3 generations. All of these people are not receiving proper medical treatment, or making truly informed decisions about their healthcare, as a result.

How to reach out to DES exposed individuals?
One opportunity I considered when I started writing my DES Blogs "Journal of a DES Daughter" and "DES Daughter Network" was the use of social media networks.

This Google+ page aims to break the wall of silence around the DES drug issues and further raise awareness about the health concerns including cancer and infertility associated with prenatal DES exposure.
