The FDA didn’t ban DES and today recognizes the DES tragedy but refuses to apologize to the victims.
Pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly who manufactured DES in the US has never accepted responsibility nor apologized for the DES tragedy.
Should DES victims learn to accept an apology they will never get? …
Nine people commented so far, what do you think?
- Let’s all convince Eli Lilly to adequately deal with the Reality of their Disaster – Time for Actions
- Will @LillyPad pull a @LanceArmstrong : call @Oprah , admit to the Lies about DES? #KeepLillyHonest
- Fess-Up on DES @LillyPad #EliLilly ! See on Pinterest and Sign @Royallgal #Petition to #KeepLillyHonest @DES_Journal
- The FDA is lying by omission

You know it’s never going to come. At some point, I guess you have to move on. I know it’s difficult, but you have to make your own happyness in this world, even with its challenges. I’ve had more than my share of life’s difficulties from DES. I’m still having problems from it and I’m 57 years old. But a long time ago I realized that medicine is as much art as science. We are all human beings. We all make mistakes. Does that change the fact that we have all suffered? No. But nothing in this world is going to change that even if Eli Lilly admits the mistakes. I’ve had a lot of bad things happen in my life, but I’ve moved on from it all because I can’t let it consume me. I’ve already had a somewhat nervious breakdown. For me that was far worse than anything else. We have to think positive and find a “silver lining” in our lives. While this is a horrible thing, there has to be something good in all of our lives. I look at it as if my mother didn’t take this drug I would not be here. She had 12 miscarriages and a stillbirth or two. And that was before I was born. There was more miscarriages after I was born. My brother was born 5 weeks early and in 1957, the fact that he lived was a miricle in of itself. So while we all have our issues, we are here. Wheather this drug was a help, who knows. But the bottom line is, there are good things in all of our lives. Enjoy them!
Thank you for sharing your story and thoughts with our readers Dianne.
We know that DES was not effective for what is was marketed for…
