The Scientific and Social Origins of the Environmental Endocrine Hypothesis including defects in babies whose mothers took the estrogen substitute diethylstilbestrol (DES).

Hormonal Chaos

The Scientific and Social Origins of the Environmental Endocrine Hypothesis The broader environmental endocrine hypothesis (EEH), is the subject of Hormonal Chaos, by Sheldon Krimsky, 2000.

What I Thought I Knew. Memoir by Alice Eve Cohen. Hilariously funny in parts, thought-provoking in others.

What I thought I knew, a Memoir

Solo theater artist Alice Eve Cohen knew that childbearing was simply impossible - her own mother had taken DES, and Alice had a deformed uterus, among other disqualifiers. So when what doctors misdiagnosed as a tumor turned out to be a 6-month fetus, the 44-year-old Alice had to wrestle with clueless specialists, cavalier insurance companies, and her own no-see-um maternal instincts. Her darkly hilarious memoir, What I Thought I Knew is a page-turner filled with vivid characters, and many…

From Techno-Sex to Techno-Tots by Robbie Davis-Floyd and Joseph Dumit As we are faced with reproductive choices connected directly with technologies, we often have trouble gaining perspective on our own cultural co-dependency with these very same technologies. Our notions of fetal health, maternal risk and child IQ are inseparable from them. Chapter 10 includes Living with the "Truths" of DES : Toward an Anthropology of Facts
