Spontaneous Remissions

 An Anniversary

 On June 3, I marked the 28th anniversary of my career  as a science writer. Back in 1974, Richard Nixon was
 still president and I was an energetic idealist with a freshly minted Stanford PhD. Although I had a lovely

DES in particular could account for the anti-prostate cancer effects seen with this formula.
