Historical clips on DDT, Rachel Carson and science explaining why humans pollute. The chemical structure of DDT is very similar to DES

One should notice that the chemical structure of DDT is very similar to Diethylstilbestrol (DES), the synthetic estrogen which was contraindicated by the FDA (1971) because it caused cervical cancer – adenocarcinoma of the vagina – in the daughters of women given DES during pregnancy.
