It has serious transgenerational epigenetic effects that are still showing up in our population. It was also used in the raising of cattle and poultry for human consumption so even if you think you've avoided exposure... you may not have. Goldstein, a trained gynecological nurse and a women who was exposed to DES through her mother explains what to look for and what to do if you think you or someone you know was exposed.
