A reminder of the need for DDT

DDT Ban Led to 50-80 Million Deaths.

The effect of banning DDT is like loading up a jumbo jet full of people -- mostly children -- every single day, and crashing it into the side of a mountain. Why are we tolerating this? Because people exposed to DDT might get cancer one day? Hello! The people who need DDT dream of living long enough to get cancer!

Bravo! I love it when someone finds a gap in the logic of overly pro-active thinking.

I enjoyed your other blog, well, not enjoyed because it hurts as I was there at one point, made the wrong decision, and now live with it. It and my wonderful adopted daughter.

I'll be linking to your sites and look forward to your comments!

Dave, I took the image from a pro-DDT site, so I can't take credit for it. But the idea of the people dying of malaria wishing they lived long enough to get cancer -- that's just simple logic.

Sorry for the loss of your child. Enjoy the adopted young -un!
