Meet DES Daughter Anita Vandersmissen

“Hallucinating that I knew about Softenon and the harmful effects of asbestos, but nothing about DES”

Anita en ik spreken af in Mechelen. Halfweg zeg maar tussen onze twee levens. Na ons gesprek moet ze in allerijl naar haar werk sporen. En ik die dacht dat DES-dochter zijn heel je dag vulde. Niet helemaal onwaar, sterker nog, het vult al dertig jaar Anita’s leven.

Read Hallucinant dat ik wel van Softenon afwist en van de nefaste effecten van asbest, maar niets van DES, on apache, 2017/11/17.

Meet DES Daughter Myriam Mestiaen

“So many people do not even know that this is also about them”

Ik heb een afspraak met Myriam. Ze is kunstenares, muzikante, lerares, vrouw van Steve, net vijftig en DES-dochter. Dat laatste werd ze ook nog niet zo lang geleden, tenminste bewust. Zoals wellicht velen onder ons vermoedde Myriam niet dat haar gynaecologische problemen geen speling van het lot waren, maar het gevolg van een hormoon-schandaal dat sinds de jaren ‘70 regelmatig in het nieuws was: DES.

Hidden FDA Reports Detail Harm Caused By Scores Of Medical Devices

The Food and Drug Administration has let medical device companies file reports of injuries and malfunctions outside a widely scrutinized public database, which leave doctors and medical sleuths in the dark

Kaiser Health News senior correspondent Christina Jewett explains how she investigated a Food and Drug Administration database where medical device makers report malfunctions and patient injuries, skirting the public record. Because the cache of information is buried deep within the agency, it’s often hard for physicians, researchers and patient safety advocates to access the information.
