DES and Cryptorchidism

EDC-2: The Endocrine Society’s Second Scientific Statement on Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals, 2015

Abstract

It was subsequently determined that exposed offspring of both sexes had increased risk for multiple reproductive disorders, certain cancers, cryptorchidism (boys), and other diseases, although the risk for sons is more controversial.

New data are emerging to implicate increased disease risk in grandchildren.
