It’s become embarrassing for Eli Lilly to say DES does not cause breast cancer

10 Jan

DES Daughter Caitlin McCarthy was quoted extensively in today’s Boston Globe about the DES breast cancer trial settlement.

Her quotes:

“DES daughters have always known it does cause cancer, especially breast cancer, and the science has caught up to the truth,” said Caitlin McCarthy, a DES educator and activist who is not involved in the lawsuit, but whose mother took the drug. McCarthy has campaigned for more awareness and wrote the screenplay for a film about DES titled “Wonder Drug,” which is in production.

Throughout her research, McCarthy said, the drug companies including Eli Lilly have failed to apologize.

With Wednesday’s settlement, after the trial had begun, she said: “They can’t dodge, weave, or flat out lie anymore, because this is something we know. . . . It’s become embarrassing for them to say this does not cause breast cancer.”

    Remember the Zyprexa scandal.
    The Eli Lilly company made an astounding $67 BILLION on Zyprexa that they PUSHED on the elderly and underage children (*Viva Zyprexa* Lilly sales rep slogan) with wanton disregard for the side effects
    *FIVE at FIVE*
    The Zyprexa antipsychotic drug,whose side effects can include weight gain and diabetes, was sold to Veterans,children in foster care, elderly in nursing homes.
    *Five at Five* was the Zyprexa sales rep slogan, meaning *5mg dispensed at 5pm would keep patients quiet*.
    *Tell the truth don’t be afraid*– Daniel Haszard
