When even chicken farmers say that the system has failed, it’s time for consumers to use their buying power to push for food that causes less harm to everyone. #livestock

Low-dose and combined exposure to #BPA and #DES may have toxic effects on male fertility in the adult population.

It’s long been understood that exercise decreases the risk of developing cancer but a radical idea for patients to exercise during cancer treatment has been labelled a potential game changer by some doctors.

“This study underscores the importance of what a young girl eats for her future health. This study also has an important message for schools and the need to provide students with the opportunity to consume more fruits and vegetables as part of the school meal program.” #BreastCancer

good research..thanks for sharing in order for us to be aware that consuming lots of fruits can reduced the risk of breast cancer among young girls...school should firmly implement that school canteen will serve it as part of their meal..

Chemicals, EDCs, Pesticides  - 
 
Each year, more than 680 million pounds of pesticides are applied to agricultural fields across the country. This 2007 figure—the most recent government estimates available—climbs to more than a billion when common non-agricultural pesticide uses are included. We believe this is too much. Ever-stronger science shows that even at low levels of exposure, many of these chemicals are harmful to human health—and children’s developing minds and bodies are particularly vulnerable. It is also increasingly clear that alternative, less chemical-intensive approaches to farming are not only viable, but would strengthen the resilience of agricultural production.
There is no need for our food and farming system to put our children’s health at risk from chemical exposure

2016: "our results confirmed a transgenerational transmission of defects in male genital tract. With caution due to possible bias associated with this method, our data suggest an increase of defects for esophagus, lip or palate, musculoskeletal and circulatory system in children of exposed women".

Prescription Drugs  - 
 
In January 2016 the phase I study of the drug BIA-10-2474 conducted in Rennes, France, left one initially healthy volunteer dead and three with serious neurological damage, some of which may be permanent. This recent story reminded me the 1950 tragedy study at the University of Chicago, where every pregnant woman at the University’s Lying-In Hospital (1,646) was a test subject for a DES experiment without their knowledge or consent, and became part of a clinical trial: one-half were randomized to receive DES and the other half received placebos. None of the women were told they were part of a study, nor were they told what drug they were taking. The study found that twice as many of the DES-treated mothers had miscarriages, premature births, small babies,

More BPA exposure before birth could mean more body fat and larger waists during early childhood, according to a New York City recent study.
Children whose mothers had higher BPA exposure in their third trimester had more body fat in their school-age years

Food Contact Materials – food packaging, factory equipment, food utensils – almost everything we eat has been in contact with one or more of these items. The EU’s laws should ensure that chemicals used in these materials are safe, but they do not go far enough and contain holes.

Story
Tagline
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.
