Review for DES Action USA, New York, NY, USA
I am a DES Daughter and the new Community Manager for DES Action, USA. DES Action provides vetted articles on ongoing research and research results for the DES exposed population. This is so vital as DES exposure requires a lifetime watch, and has effected 3 generations: the mothers who took it, the children exposed during fetal development, and now the grandchildren. DES Action provides education, emotional support and resources like doctors' lists or examination protocol that is vitally important for the DES exposed. Without DES Action, USA the DES exposed population would be blindly looking for answers. DES Action advocates and brings awareness to the DES exposed and the general population, including the medical community. It also provides a an online community for support and discussion. Without DES Action, I would not be able to navigate my medical care with my doctors who are often not aware of the latest findings or recommendations. Last, DES was the first transplacental carcinogen and endocrine disruptor created by man. It is a model for all other endocrine disruptors that are being studied.
