Thanks for sharing.  BPA exposure is another great risk for our health

Sadly, there are several medical mandates that are affecting preganancies today that have generational implications which are being ignored by media. The two that most interest me are the pollution of water and air - both ubiquitous and necessary to life. The same population with allergies or autoimmune disease are most sensitive to both, i.e. the personal impact on your health and the health of your grandchildren is pre-determined. 

 

Fluoridation - CWF 

Based on 21st century evidence, medical opinion is evolving. The IAOMT is one of over a dozen  professional organizations who has openly spoken out against fluroidation policy as dangerous to people and planet. Download their 2017 Position Paper AGAINST any fluoride use from their website. It contains 500 citations: https://iaomt.org/resources/fluoride-facts/ 

 

Another valuable website with a very readable volume that contains about 300 scientififc citations specific to pregnancy is available from this website: http://pregnancyandfluoridedonotmix.com 

 

Electromagnetic Frequency or Radiation - EMF, EMR

Scientists have petitioned the UN and governments about the alarming impact of increased wireless exposure to all species, plant, animal and human. Event the U.S. Dept of Interior wrote a memo to NTIA about plant and animal damage in the vicinity of cell phone towers in 2014. Smart meters from utilities installed on residential homes and in commercial buildings have the same effect. But EMF was marketed as a 'safe' and 'green' alternative in the 1990s and so was codified as safe in the law - despite evidence that is the fastest air pollution and threatens extinction.

Third generation: Grandsons of women who were prescribed the drug DES are more likely to have **bleep** deformations, one study has found

 

Forty years ago doctors realized a drug used to prevent pregnancy complications could have devastating consequences for babies. Now a new study has found those effects could be felt by a third generation. French researchers report that the grandsons of women who took diethylstilbestrol (DES) are more likely than other men to have deformations in the opening of the **bleep**.

 

Doctors prescribed DES to pregnant women between the 1940s and into the 1970s to prevent miscarriages and premature labour. It was given to as many a s two million women in the U.S and four million women worldwide  Then research revealed girls exposed in the womb had a far higher chance of developing a cancer in the **bleep**.

 

Later studies found that girls whose mothers took DES while pregnant were also more likely to have birth defects and fertility problems. One of the birth defects suspected in boys is hypospadias, in which the urethra (the tube that carries urine) ends somewhere along the **bleep** or close to the scrotum, rather than at the tip of the **bleep**.

 

About four out of every 1,000 boys are born with hypospadias. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said it's unclear whether DES increased the risk of hypospadias, but some studies have shown a link.

 

Previous studies have also suggested that the effects of DES might transmit down to the third generation - to the grandchildren of women who took the drug.

 

In the latest study, Dr Nicolas Kalfa at Universite Montpellie and colleagues looked at the number of hypospadias cases among the sons and grandsons of a group of women who took DES.

The women reported using DES during 1,000 pregnancies, and did not take the drug during 180 pregnancies. Among grandsons, the only ones to have the malformation were the sons of daughters who were exposed to the drug prenatally. Eight out of every 100 grandsons in this group had hypospadias.

 

'If (defects) are being transmitted to the third generation - and it's not 100 percent certain that they are - we don't know how that's happening,' said Dr Linda Titus Ernstoff from Dartmouth Medical School. One possibility is that a woman who was exposed to DES in the womb suffered damage, as a fetus, to her developing reproductive system. In this case, her eggs were damaged, causing a defect in her future son. Another possibility is that the DES could have altered the control of the mother's genes, something that could be passed down not just to her son, but to subsequent generations. There's also the chance that 'it could be nothing,' Dr Titus-Ernstoff said.

 

 

The French group analyzed families of women who joined a DES group - called Hhorages - because their children or grandchildren suffered from psychological disorders.

 

 

 

The research, published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, was funded by a grant from the University of Montpellier in France, where the researchers are based.

 

Dr Titus-Ernstoff said researchers are continuing to understand the extent of the damage caused by DES.

'It was a terrible natural experiment,' she said. 

 

'A real tragedy.'
