Men and prenatal exposure to DES

Studies on DES Sons Health Issues and InfertilityThe scope of adverse effects in males exposed to diethylstilbestrol (also called DES sons) has been a lot less documented than the effects in females. However, a number of studies have confirmed and identified that DES sons are susceptible to a wide range of medical adverse effects associated with prenatal exposure to diethylstilbestrol.

Alan Turing Cyber-Legacy praised by GCHQ Director

Iain Lobban said there were “enduring lessons” to be drawn from the work of Alan Turing

Alan Turing image

Alan Turing was arrested on 7 February 1952 for his affair with a young man.

He was obliged to undertake injections of DES (stilboestrol in the UK) intended to render him asexual…

He only became famous decades after his death. GCHQ director Iain Lobban said there were “enduring lessons” to be drawn from the work of Alan Turing.

The forgotten Piece of the Jigsaw

According to DES Sons International Network, the exact statistics on the number of males exposed to Diethylstilbestrol before birth are difficult to obtain, but the most reliable estimates from within the U.S.A. place the figure at somewhere between 200,000 and 1.5 million males born between 1947 and 1971 (the years that Di-Ethyl Stilbestrol® was used to support pregnancies in the U.S.A.).

DES Sons – the Truth and the Unknown

DES is a drug tragedy not only for women but for men too.
Yet, far less research on the devastating health effects of DES has been carried out on men.
