Plans Underway To Re-Introduce DDT Pesticide In Kenya
February 5th, 2013
The Star – Kenya
Plans are underway to re-introduce the banned DDT pesticide in the country for malaria control purposes.
Public health minister Beth Mugo says her ministry is in talks with relevant ministries to allow use of the pesticide that works effectively against mosquitoes.
Kenya deserves CONGRATULATIONS for RE-INTRODUCING DDT.
In 1970, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences summed up the situation with the following excerpt from their book Life Sciences. ―
« To only a few chemicals does man owe as great a debt as to DDT. [ … ] In little more than two decades. DDT has prevented 500 million human deaths, due to MALARIA, that otherwise would be inevitable. »
In 1972, the Administrative Judge of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released the following statement ―
« DDT [ … ] does NOT have a deleterious effect on freshwater fish, estuarine organisms, wild birds, or other wildlife. »
In 2004, popular author Michael Crichton summed up the situation with the following excerpt from his book entitled State Of Fear ―
« Arguably, the greatest tragedy of the Twentieth Century was the removal of DDT. DDT was the best insecticide for the control of mosquitoes. Despite views to the contrary, no other products were as efficient, or as safe. Since the removal of DDT, it has been estimated that thirty to fifty million people have died unnecessarily from the effects of malaria. Sadly, removing DDT has KILLED MORE PEOPLE THAN HITLER. Before the removal of DDT, malaria had become almost a minor illness, with only fifty thousand deaths per year throughout the world. »
