My Mother was given Diethylstilbestrol

Oona King – My Family Values

Oona King: My family values
My Mother was given Diethylstilbestrol says Oona King

My mother was given diethylstilbestrol (DES), later called the “silent thalidomide”, when she was pregnant. I had to be checked twice yearly from the age of seven to see if I was developing cancer. Finally, when I was in my early 20s, the doctors said I was in the lucky 10% who don’t get sick from the drugs. Whether that’s true or not, I don’t know. ” says Oona King

Prenatal exposure to artificial female Hormones and Effect on Gender Identity: a DES Son Opinion

Read “A DES Son Speaks Out” by Hugh Easton

A DES Son speaks out
DES Son Testimonial

I’m convinced there’s a major unrecognized problem when exposure before birth to medicines containing artificial female hormones is causing intersexed or opposite-sexed development in males, particularly where brain development is concerned …  … The fact that the whole thing with the DES sons has remained a secret for so long has added to my suspicions that there could be similar problems being caused by some of the other pregnancy hormone treatments that are still in current use. ”

All Trials Registered, All Results Reported, why the #AllTrials Campaign Matters
Join and sign the #AllTrials petition for all trials registered and all results reported

Around half of all clinical trials have not been published; some trials have not even been registered. If action is not taken urgently, information on what was done and what was found in trials could be lost forever, leading to bad treatment decisions, missed opportunities for good medicine, and trials being repeated unnecessarily.

More research needed on EDCs, says UN report

European Parliament backs stronger EDC regulation
The European Parliament has backed a proposal to list endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) as substances of very high concern under the REACH legislation.

DES, PCB, BPA: same old stories! the story of putting a chemical into widespread use without understanding its health implications and then trying to resolve public health questions while facing the intense pressure of serious economic consequences .

Doctors need to know and ask the right Questions to assess Breast Cancer Risk in their Patients

Judge OK’s suit against makers of anti-miscarriage drug

Judge OK’s suit against makers of anti-miscarriage drug
Part of what Aaron Levine and Julie Zhang are advocating is for the drug companies to fund additional DES research on breast cancer, as well as in DES third generation (grandchildren) populations says Caitlin McCarthy

Caitlin McCarthy, an English teacher at Worcester Technical High School, is the daughter of a woman given DES. Born in 1970, she found out in 2005 that her mother had taken it, but so far, is cancer-free. A DES daughter activist, she has written a documentary, Wonder Drug, about the DES fallout.

Caitlin says: ” Doctors need to know to give adequate care, and ask the right questions to assess breast cancer risk in their patients, and being a DES daughter is a big one… more funds are needed for better studies…”.
