Niagara Falls Lights Up for DES (Diethylstilbestrol) Awareness Week
With special thanks to the Niagara Falls Illumination Board, #niagarafalls will illuminate Orange, Red, and Black for DES Awareness Week on Monday, April 26, 2021, at 10 pm EST for fifteen minutes. Six other locations in America will also illuminate this week.
Do you know about the #DES #tragedy ? For decades, millions of pregnant women were given the synthetic #estrogen, DES (Diethylstilbestrol), thereby exposing them and their future offspring to a teratogenic, carcinogenic mutagen. Adverse effects are now appearing in the fourth generation after these genetic mutations, including vaginal #clearcelladenocarcinoma in girls under ten. Major issues related to the reproductive system and fertility, causing excessive miscarriages and birth defects. Serious #cardiac issues are common.
At least 200 separate #genes are impacted by #diethylstilbestrolexposure. #Bigpharma and the #fda does not want this publicly discussed. As such, a group of DES Exposed women led by Daphne Grant, teamed up to create an illumination awareness campaign around the cause to make the noise they don’t want us to make! We need research, education, better health care... we need to save lives! Too many have died too young due to #DESExposure . Do you know if you or anyone in your family is DES Exposed?
