Origins, how the Nine Months before Birth shape the rest of our Lives... on PinterestThe book’s most chilling section involves the tragic results of thalidomide and diethylstilbestrol (DES), two drugs from the 1950s that were “given to pregnant women in the belief that the fetus would be unaffected.”

Annie Murphy Paul reveals six decades later:
It is evidence of the evolving state of our knowledge that the mechanisms by which these substances do their damage are not completely clear, even now.

By Pat Val Cody, DES health activist and co-founder of DES Action USA

DES Voices, From Anger to Action
Take a new estrogen promoted by the pharmaceutical companies. Add doctors ready to believe in another miracle drug. Take post-World War II women desperate to have a baby after miscarrying. Continue prescription for years. The result is the tragedy experienced by million of DES-exposed mothers, daughters, sons and perhaps grandchildren. This is the story of what they did about the drug disaster that changed their lives.

Read DES Voices, a book written by Pat Val Cody, DES health activist and co-founder of DES Action USA.

Fess-Up on DES: The Petition

Money won’t buy our silence!

Fess-Up on DES @LillyPad #EliLilly ! See on Pinterest and Sign @Royallgal #Petition to #KeepLillyHonest

My mum was prescribed DES in 1970. Eli Elly, and all drug manufacturers in the USA and in countries such as France and the UK where DiEthylStilbestrol continued to be prescribed well after the FDA issued a warning regarding the DES cancer link, should be condemned and should be forced to pay research for DES victims including the third generation (children of DES daughters). Money won’t buy our silence! Fess up on DES and take responsibility!
