Justice for DES Daughters

One reason to celebrate, says Silent Spring Institute

Silent Spring Institute turned 20 and came up with 20 #reasonstocelebrate to highlight milestones and achievements toward creating a less toxic future in the fight against breast cancer.

In 2012, 53 DES Daughters won settlements from 14 drug companies, because the women got breast cancer after being exposed to the anti-miscarriage drug. DES daughters remind us that it can take 60 years to get strong human evidence that a chemical causes breast cancer, so if we have biological evidence that a chemical is harmful, we should take steps NOW to protect health.

Justice in this case is one of our #ReasonsToCelebrate. ”
