DES: Did you know the history of DES's discovery
DES Info: Did you know ~ DES Invention: DES was invented in the 1930's by Sir Charles Dodds, in England, who was seeking to cheaply synthesize estrogens. Even Dr. Dodds, himself, did not believe in giving synthetic estrogen to otherwise health women. For various reasons, the drug was never patented and that is why it was manufactured and sold under 200 brand names. Estrogen had long been known as a potential teratogen and carcinogen. In 1939 it was found that the offspring of rodents, given DES while pregnant, showed significant deformities of their reproductive organs. Oh my, The DES Tragedy did not have to happen if the research was not pushed aside. The DES Exposed are still awaiting an apology!
