Could a pregnant woman’s exposure to drugs alter the brains of her grandchildren?

Something a pregnant woman is exposed to may alter not just her children, but also her grandchildren – and possibly even subsequent generations.
The power of pharmaceuticals to do just that came to light with DES, a synthetic estrogen that harmed at least two generations of offspring of women who took it.

  • From generation to generation
  • A personal quest
  • Searching the epigenome for answers
  • Antidepressants under the microscope
  • FDA petitioned, NIH involved
