fall colors along the road

Is DES a factor in the genesis of gender identity?

Click on the title above for the GenderTalk program where Wayne Beyer & Scott Kerlin, doctor and researcher, discuss the impact of DES exposure on male offspring.

"DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a synthetic estrogen drug that was given to millions of pregnant women primarily from 1938-1971. Use of DES during pregnancy was thought to prevent miscarriage and ensure a healthy pregnancy. DES did not work, and women who took DES and the children they carried are at risk for certain health problems and may need special care. Find out if you were exposed to DES and if you were, tell your doctor." http://www.desaction.org/what.htm

In addition, see the archives of GenderTalk (link on the right) for other informative and challenging presentations. Highly recommended!
