Contrary to prior indications, the modest but statistically significant increased risk of breast cancer -  for DES mothers - did not appear to increase greatly over time.

Communication can be difficult between ‪#‎doctors‬ and the DES-affected. This 2007 publication confirms that clinicians need to be up-to-date with current knowledge regarding risks for cancer and other health-related issues.

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.
