I'm trying to be even-handed. Yet my intentions of support for DDT are obvious. If you feel that I'm missing an important fact or detail against or in favor of DDT, or the current situation fo Malaria in Africa please, by all means, add it. Ohh, and the obligatory MeFi thread.
What the World Needs Now Is DDT Malaria is still one of the worst enemies afflicting the African continent, yet it still being underrated and ignored. DDT is highly toxic chemical agent that still could be used in beneficial ways (as mentioned in the above New York Times article) yet it's overuse in the 60's and the publication of Silent Spring made it unpopular and killed it politically.
