Synthetic steroid hormones used as pharmaceutical drugs, have been found to affect cancer risk. Lifetime exposure to natural steroid hormone estrogen is associated with an increased risk for breast cancer. Hence, consumers are concerned about whether they are being exposed to hormones used to treat animals, and whether these hormones affect human health.

A major US-based study has found that producing and using safer chemicals is good for business, and recommends that companies that are not already evaluating the potential of safer chemicals should do so. The study estimates that the market for safer chemicals has 24 times the growth potential of the worldwide conventional chemicals market , and that job creation in safer goods and services is well ahead of the conventional chemical industry.

Many patients with terminal cancer are offered #chemotherapy in order to improve their quality of life. But according to a new study, the treatment does not improve quality of life for cancer patients who are near death – and may even worsen it for those who have good performance status.

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.
