A mom's crusade could help unravel autism mystery

Could a pregnant woman’s exposure to drugs alter the brains of her grandchildren?

Something a pregnant woman is exposed to may alter not just her children, but also her grandchildren – and possibly even subsequent generations.
The power of pharmaceuticals to do just that came to light with DES, a synthetic estrogen that harmed at least two generations of offspring of women who took it.

Thanks to Jill Escher, scientists are considering how mothers taking fertility drugs in the 1950s and ’60s could be responsible for transgenerational abnormalities:

  • From generation to generation
  • A personal quest
  • Searching the epigenome for answers
  • Antidepressants under the microscope
  • FDA petitioned, NIH involved
