I would have thought this DES situation was the perfect opportunity to stress the importance of independent fair testing of drugs and prescribing drugs only on the basis of evidence rather than hope, wishful thinking or anecdote.

The DES situation does show us is that back when it was popular the best evidence showed that DES did not help with what it was being prescribed for.

Basing prescriptions on that evidence would have meant that there would have been far fewer people suffering the consequences following on from the use of DES.
