Review for DES Action USA, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I know several people who work for this wonderful organization. What they do for those impacted by DES is amazing. They create a real sense of community for them, answer calls and hold events such as frequent Facebook live broadcasts with interesting and informative speakers. They do so much with a tiny staff and tiny budget and are to be applauded for their efforts.

Review for Medshadow Foundation, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

MedShadow is doing a great service by educating consumers about the risks and benefits of prescription and OTC drugs, as well as supplements. They also provide alternative ways to treat medical conditions that can minimize or eliminate the need for medications. Their articles are well researched and sourced, with comments from medical experts and patients. Best of all, they are free from medical and health industry funding, so I trust the information I get from their site. They do a lot considering they rely on individual donations.

Review for DES Action USA, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came across this organization doing a Google search after reading an article about women who have been impacted by DES as their mothers took the drug. It provided a lot of good background info on the synthetic hormone itself and how it can be harmful to women who took it as well as their offspring. The organization is geared toward the children of mothers who took DES and provides resources and a community of people who are also dealing with the aftermath of DES.

Review for Medshadow Foundation, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There are a lot of websites out there that talk about health and wellness, but MedShadow is different from them. They focus mostly on the side effects of drugs, something that isn't discussed often enough among doctors, even though they affect many people. You can learn a lot about the benefits and risks of many commonly taken drugs, including what to look out for, allowing you to become more informed about your health. They also publish blogs which are well written and often cover topics I haven't seen anywhere else.
